Stormi's Review: The Eye of Nefertiti: A Pharaoh's Cat Novel by Maria Luisa Lang
RELEASED: November 28, 2016
GENRE: HISTORICAL, FANTASY
LENGTH: 209 pages
FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
The Eye of Nefertiti is both a stand-alone novel and a sequel to The Pharaoh’s Cat. The time-traveling ancient Egyptian feline with human powers returns together with his beloved Pharaoh and his close friends, the High Priest of Amun-Ra and Elena, an Egyptologist’s daughter. The cat is quick-witted, wise-cracking narrator as well as free-spirited, ever-curious protagonist, and the story he tells is an exotic, imaginative, spell-binding tragicomedy. The cat travels from present-day New York City to England, both ancient and modern, then to ancient Egypt, where he confronts a horrible demon and experiences a sublime emotion. Once back in England, he descends into a psychological abyss so deep only the Pharaoh can save him. The Eye of Nefertiti interweaves feline and human, past and present, natural and supernatural. It contains numerous surprises, twists and turns, intriguing characters, both human and animal, fascinating revelations about ancient Egyptian history and culture, and an ingenious application of the Tarot and an Italian opera.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Wrappa-Hammen and the high priest are back. They are living in modern day New York with Elena. She has given birth to the reincarnation of the beloved pharaoh. They decide to go to England for a job and while there Wrappa Hammen and the high priest are enlisted to help Nefertiti. She is determined to end her immortality and the only one able to help her is a crazy cat who just so happens to be a cat with human abilities.
This book was just as good if not better than the first. I love this cat with his attitude and character. This book was another book filled with action, comedy, time travel, history, and a little bit of romance. They journey to Stonehenge and back to Ancient Egypt in a fast paced novel. The characters are so easy to love and the story is deeply enthralling and unique. It can definitely bring a good laugh. I hope to read more about this crazy cat in the future.
