The story itself is interesting enough for light entertainment, and the main characters are likable (those that are meant to be). I certainly enjoyed the book, even though I think a little more research (and a good editor) would have helped.
For instance, modern Egyptologists seem to think that Hatshepsut's trouble was not so much with Tothmoses, but rather with the Thebes priesthood. (By inference, pharaoh was a priest of Amun, but women could not be priests of Amun).
One particular annoying mistake in this book is that (like so many others) this author is struggling with royal etiquette. When talking to a queen you say `Your Majesty', and when talking about the queen you say `Her Majesty'. Never, as far as I know, do you talk about `My Majesty', as does this book. It rather grates, after a while.
