The message from Queen Puduhepa of Hatti to the queen of the two kingdoms of Kemet (Egypt), Nefertari, confirmed a possibility that Queen Nefertari dreaded. A Hittite king had been dethroned and was bound for Egypt to seek asylum. In their message to Queen Nefertari, the Hittites demanded that Ramses II (Pharaoh) should not offer the dethroned king asylum, but should repatriate him instead. Both Pharaoh and Queen Nefertari knew that granting asylum as Egypt's laws dictated would only prompt the belligerent Hittite king to wage war against Egypt. Queen Nefertari consulted a shaman to seek guidance from the gods and help prevent a looming war. Will she succeed or will the Egyptians and Hittites go to war? Find out more in Naveen Sridhar’s A Hittite and a Shaman: At Queen Nefertari's Secret Service.
If you enjoy historical novels laced with a compelling tale of romance, royalty, trust, loyalty, and love, you will love Naveen Sridhar’s A Hittite and a Shaman. Naveen unfolds his intriguing plot with insight, yet manages to maintain a subtle tone, switching between his designated characters. He moves between the present and the past, effortlessly giving his storyline a beautiful flow. His impressively vivid depictions capture the ancient setting of this story, with its unique culture and lifestyle. I learned a lot about ancient Egypt from the story. The characters were wonderfully developed, each of their traits and emotions being clearly outlined. Queen Nefertari is an intelligent woman with a big heart.
