Review: The Eye of Nefertiti

TITLE: The Eye of Nefertiti
AUTHOR: Maria Luisa Lang
RELEASE DATE: November 29th, 2016
PUBLISHER: self-published
FORMAT: Paperback & ebook
SOURCE: complimentary copy


The cat must free Queen Nefertiti from a horrific curse.
The Eye of Nefertiti is both a stand-alone novel and a sequel to The Pharaoh’s Cat. The time-traveling ancient Egyptian feline with human powers returns together with his beloved Pharaoh and his close friends, the High Priest of Amun-Ra and Elena, an Egyptologist’s daughter. 
The cat is quick-witted, wise-cracking narrator as well as free-spirited, ever-curious protagonist, and the story he tells is an exotic, imaginative, spell-binding tragicomedy. The cat travels from present-day New York City to England, both ancient and modern, then to ancient Egypt, where he confronts a horrible demon and experiences a sublime emotion. Once back in England, he descends into a psychological abyss so deep only the Pharaoh can save him. 
The Eye of Nefertiti interweaves feline and human, past and present, natural and supernatural. It contains numerous surprises, twists and turns, intriguing characters, both human and animal, fascinating revelations about ancient Egyptian history and culture, and an ingenious application of the Tarot and an Italian opera. 

Maria Luisa Lang has published two novels, The Pharaoh’s Cat and The Eye of Nefertiti, which is both a sequel to The Pharaoh’s Cat and a stand-alone novel. 

She was born in Rome, Italy, and lives in New York City. She often returns to Italy to visit her family and has stayed for extended periods in Bath and London. 

She has a degree in art from the City University of New York, and her artwork has been exhibited in New York galleries. She is an amateur Egyptologist. Her love of cats and ancient Egypt has inspired her to write two novels set there with a very special cat as her protagonist.
Both The Pharaoh’s Cat and The Eye of Nefertiti are available on Amazon in paperback and in a Kindle edition.

The Eye of Nefertiti is the new book presenting the adventures of Wrappa Hamen, the talking cat, and the High Priest. This time we see how they are handling living in modern times and enjoying his beloved Pharaoh reincarnated in a sweet baby.  We see how this two continue traveling through times and messing things up a bit.

This time Wrappa Hamen meets the beautiful Nefertiti only to discover an awful curse and he will have to do unbelievable things to help her. As we can expect they travel to Ancient Egypt one more time to unravel how the strings of destiny are entangled in unexpectable ways.

The book is well written and the scenes are all quite entertaining which makes the reading easy. It´s true that the book can be read as a standalone but I recommend to read both books for better understanding.  

I have to say I love Wrappa Hamen, not only because he is a cat but he has the best personality. He is so human you forget he is supposed to be a cat.
