When Naomi’s sisters are snatched up to be taken to be wives of the erratic Pharaoh, Akhenaten, she knows they won’t survive the palace, so she offers herself in their place. The fearsome Commander Horemheb sees her courage, and knows she is exactly what he is looking for…

The Great Queen Nefertiti despises Naomi instantly, and strips her of her Hebrew lineage, including her name, which is changed to Kiya. Kiya allies herself with Horemheb, who pushes her to greatness and encourages her to make the Pharaoh fall in love with her. When Akhenaten declares Kiya will be the mother of his heir, Nefertiti, furious with jealousy, schemes to destroy Kiya.

Kiya must play the deadly game carefully. She is in a silent battle of wills, and a struggle for who will one day inherit the crown. If she does bear an heir, she knows she will need to fight to protect him, as well as herself, from Nefertiti who is out for blood.

  2. Well, I just got me the last chapter to read, then I've finished Kiya, so I clearly don't need the eBook. But this is kind of cool.

  3. Have seen the 2nd and third before but so interesting to see 1 and 4. I too have read the book (and loved it) but seeing the photos helps with the imagery in my mind. Thanks

  4. What an intriguing-sounding book! I love the cover, too! Great faces and font. I'm sure the setting really adds to the flavor of the book. :)

  5. Very fun. What is it about the ancient Egyptian culture that was so fascinating. The relics left are so finely crafted and mystical feeling.

  6. Sounds like an interesting read. Makes me want to travel back in time. *smiles*

  7. This was fun! It looks intriguing~

    Great cover and thanks for the chance!
    Hope you are doing well
