 Book Description

Tiy is different than the other Egyptian girls--she has pale hair and more freckles than she wants to count. With her mother consumed by the need to keep up appearances, and her father too busy to care, Tiy just wants to disappear into the background. But her hope for a quiet life is shattered when she rescues Prince Amenhotep from a sandstorm and is rewarded with an invitation to attend the royal school in Egypt’s capital—-a place where girls like her will never fit in.

Amenhotep welcomes her into his close circle of friends and their friendship strengthens into a bond neither is willing to lose. But when Amenhotep becomes Pharaoh and is pressured by the priests to marry, the strength of their friendship is threatened. Will Tiy find enough courage to accept Amenhotep’s hand when he wants her to become the next Queen of Egypt, especially when her feelings run no deeper than friendship? And how can she protect him from the Nubian rebels who are determined to take control of Egypt?

My Review : 


My Thoughts:


I got this book as an author request, and all the thoughts displayed below are only mine...

All of my reader know that I'm into everything paranormal. And it is rare that I read something non-supernatural (classics are classics, for better vocabulary and education) but my leisure reaing always consistes of something paranormal. When I was contacted to do this blog tour and the review, I have just published my blog for what 2 weeks, so I said why not to give it a chance. But my true intentions? I love reading about true love, and second I enjoy history and especially history of BC world. 

When I first read the summary I interpreted it really differently, and I was so releaved in the end of the book that Tiy really understood that she was in love with Amenhotep more then just a friend. But really, you can't imagine for a 14/15 year girl to understand love, when she always knew they were just friends. And it was not only romantic but really amazing story to read. I may sound crazy, but prologue and some scenes from the book really steered my mind that zi have seen or read something like that. But everytime I was near the solution it slided away. But that's not a big deal. 

The story engrosses you with it's simplicity, but it has a true calling of love in it. I don't know what you will read through the lines, but I definately read that sometimes you should give time to understand what love is, and never rush. And you should never force something on somebody, you should just be there and soon enough that person will see the obvious. The book guves us a glimpsle of Egyptian royal life. But don't be fooled. People like Kepi are everywhere, they life in our Bitchy neighbours, or coworkers and they live in those A cliques at our high school or colleges. We will never be free of them, but we have to remember not to fight fire with fire. Because that will be one of our first steps to the downfall.

Debby Dee also discusses the rebellion in her book. and even though we have only a little shade of it, we can really suppose that she wanted to tell us that's it's so unnessasary to have wars, that every country needs each other, that while Nubia wanted freedom it was 99% dependant on Egypt and just with killing Pharaon the matter of their freedom wjouldn't have been seeled. They would have been doomed. I think she wanted to give us something to think about too. Because the more simple the book is the more questions and answers is holds in it. 

I always find my favourite quote in the book and write it down. But this particular one could even be a motto to some people . You wonder what caught my eye? Here you go : "a pessimist is just an optimist with experience." I would love to ask everyone ( actually those who are still reading this review) a question. How many of you are pessimists or optimists? I myself can never put myself into any of that groups. I guess I am a bit too much of a realist to be either one. But what about you? 

While reading this book, you will feel only kind emotions, you will get to knoe how a person can become more solid and of course how a person goes into understanding that he/she is in love. I always love and highlight this particular moments. So far my best moment of self discovery of being in love is still to Clara from Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. And I hope you will love it too. It is not heated or steamy novel like we are all used to noe, but its "lack of heat" has an amazing effect which leaved you whole and desparate to find such love. I hope you will read this book and will like it as much as I did. Enjoy every word of it and don't forget to leave comments!!! Guess I will be off to find the love of my life. Nope, I am just fooling arounf. Happy Reading!!!! But still, I do hope you will find such love on your life... keep looking, it maybe be right near you!!! :))
