**I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review**
This is the second book in this series. However, both books are standalone stories and the author does a good job of filling in the reader of any important information needed from book one. It is very well written and well developed. I have to say this is one of the most enjoyable light-hearted series I have found. I find Nefertiti a fascinating historical figure, so this book was even more entertaining for me. I think the author does a great job creating a fantasy story that seems almost believable. This cat has more fun and adventure than I do! I’m looking forward to reading more books in this series.
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.
