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.

The Eye of Nefertiti: A Pharaoh's Cat NovelWrappa Hamen, the cat imbued with the ability to walkup right, talk and more is back with his master and best friend, Wrappa Gato, living in contemporary times and still the same, adorable, loveable, ball of sass and snark as ever. This time out, resettled in New York with Elena, Egyptologist and Wrappa Gato’s wife, one would think life would start to settle down, but when time travel is called for, Wrappa Gato’s expertise will be tested to its limits as we are whisked away to ancient lands, and ancient times. Nefertiti has lost her memory for almost two weeks, what caused it and why? How can Wrappa Hamen help?

Once again, our fabulous feline charms his way into the hearts of the ladies of Egypt as well as readers with his antics, sage advice and ability to draw trouble like a magnet. Maria Luisa Lang’s THE EYE OF NEFERTITI endeavors to answer age old questions and create a much less starched twist on the vast history of ancient Egypt. Slightly irreverent, always filled with quirky humor and occasionally tugging on cupid’s heartstrings, if history were taught like this in school, I wouldn’t have minded one bit!

Who knew our precocious cat could fall in love? Who knew the sacrifices he would have to make, as once again, he steps in to save another Pharaoh from a fate bleaker than bleak. Will the lure of fast food and all the conveniences of the modern world bring him back to the future or will love hold him captive as part of the unknown players in history?

I received this copy from Maria Luisa Lang in exchange for my honest review.
