Loved this book. I became interested by Egyptian fiction after reading neffertiti by Michele Moran and kiya is equally enthralling. Kiya seems to have been a interesting character of her time with many different interpretations of her life but no matter how accurate this particular interpretation of kiyas life is its a jolly good read.

After reading and loving the first two of this trilogy I have been waiting for this book, and in the meantime reading a seemingly endless amount of "not quite so good" Egyptian fiction, and eventually found it had been published. I have not waited in vain.
Kiya is for me one of the most interesting characters from this era and there have been many interpretations of her life but in this trilogy she is depicted as a strong, loyal, intelligent warm woman whose story envelopes you in her adventures. Katie Hamstead brings egypt to life and you feel you actually know these characters and feel their emotions.
My only criticism is that the last chapters seemed a bit rushed as if the author ran out of ideas but that may be because I just didn't want to finish the book !

Continues Naomi's story following Akhenaten's death as she returns to her Jewish community in Egypt. The book maintains the tension between Naomi the Jewish wife, and her alter ego Kiya the Pharaoh's widow. As in the previous volume, Horemheb is the link between her two very different lives.

Trilogy can tend to drag on too much and most could be squeezed into 1 book but this is completely different. I just can't get enough of this trilogy and desperate for the 3rd!!
Story is gripping and is written so well!! Impressed!!

I've given this book 4 stars because I did find it very enjoyable (have also read the first in the Trilogy) although I must say it is not as well written as most of the other books I have enjoyed in this genre. There is very little description and some of the sentences made me cringe slightly. Despite this, I found it a compelling read, which shows how good the plot and characterisation is, as normally I would not be able to read a book that I found to be written slightly amateurishly.
With this in mind I find the price a little steep compared to others in the genre (Michelle Moran's books are much more well written and yet extremely cheap). Also I did enjoy the first in the Trilogy ('Hope of a Pharoah') to be more fast paced than this one, although I am looking forward to seeing how the story ends.

I love anything to do with Egypt fiction and true events I could not put this book down as the author wraps you into the story you want to know more and more it is as if you are there yourself watching everything that is going on. Brilliant can't wait to read the next book in the series.

takes the intrigue of Egypt's akenaten and tutankamun dynasty and gives a human side to the intrigue of the royal court. kiya shows how much wisdom and strength was needed by the women of the time, it was a man's world where women had to survive, by intelligence and skill.

For all those who hate when a book ends, the Kiya Trilogy is perfect. It is a story filled with great imagination and insight based on fact, that explores the trials and tribulations of an ancient society and the tender relationships between family and kin. This novel allows the reader to have a satisfying glimpse into what the social world of Kiya's could have been like.
