Tutankhamun and the Daughter of Ra is part of Moyra Caldecott’s Egyptian sequence, which also includes Hatshepsut: Daughter of Amun and Akhenaten: Son of the Sun. Chronologically, Tutankhamun and the Daughter of Ra takes place after the other two books.
Ankhesenamun has never been safe in all her short life – not even with her beloved husband and half brother Tutankhamun.
Daughter of Pharaoh Akhenaten and the fabled Nefertiti, and married at one time to her father, she is forced to marry Tutankhamun by the powerful General Horemheb at a time of bitter political and religious division. Ankhesenamun is the delicate link between scheming factions.
Left vulnerable by the failure of her plans for the sacred egg of Ra and the death of her young husband, Ankhesenamun is forced into making one last extraordinary and desperate bid for life and happiness...
