Warrior King: An Ancient Family Saga by Lauren Lee Merewether is a work of fiction in the historical fiction, family saga, and interpersonal drama subgenres. It is best suited to a general adult reading audience due to some moderately violence scenes and adult themes throughout. In the opening to a new series set in Ancient Egypt around 1575 BC, we find ourselves embroiled in the drama of Queen Ahhotep’s life following the death of her husband. Caught between an overbearing mother and a son she must raise to take his place as a true warrior, there’s also a public to appease and a political nightmare to unravel.
It's been a while since I’ve been treated to the wonderful works of author Lauren Lee Merewether, so I was delighted to dive into this new series, giving us total immersion into the complex world of ancient Egypt. I love Merewether’s brand of political drama, blended seamlessly with interpersonal, emotional storylines that allow us to get into the psyche of her characters and explore the unusual pressures and challenges they face. This is an empowering work about the women behind the great kings and princes of Egypt, and Ahhotep is a striking figure with gravitas and power right from the start. I was totally engrossed in her romantic struggles, family quarrels, and role as a leader from cover to cover. I highly recommend Warrior King: An Ancient Family Saga. I can’t wait to see where the rest of this series goes.
