Interesting concept. However writing is somewhat loose, descriptions and dialogues could have been madea lot more terse. Character development was quite satisfactory. I would guess this book will make agood read for the 15-20-year-old age group.
When A.W. Exley isn't deciphering hieroglyphs or riding her horse sidesaddle, she is thinking up plots for her next best-seller. Nefertiti's Heart is a beautiful mixture of all Exley's passions in life, set in a Steampunk society, featuring a very Egyptian theme. As our Author of the Day, she chats with us about her fascination with Egypt, why she picked an alternate universe for Nefertiti and how she shaped the book.
