    AAMBC Book Reviews

    Much like the glossy book cover that accompanies Call Her Queen Hatshepsut, the book's protagonist is pretty on the outside but not all that she seems underneath. In his first attempt at stepping outside the bounds of erotica, author DaPharoah69 weaves a tale of a psychologically damaged young woman with a family history destined to leave her at odds with all of society. I am all for authors exploring whatever territory they damn well please, but Call Her Queen Hatshepsut is far from the masterpiece it sets out to be. In fact, that is the primary problem with this book: it takes itself way too seriously. The first few chapters are incredibly confusing and it takes too long to figure out what's going on. When the story picks up, it occasionally falls into cartoonish melodrama more suited to something found out of the now defunct soap Passions than in this attempt at serious literature. At those moments, I kept waiting for a punchline like the old joke of someone telling you a story then confesses he is pulling your leg. Otherwise, DaPharoah69 is actually a decent writer and if this were supposed to be an experimental novel, it would fare much better. However, with its outlandish climax and clean ending, it should not purport to answer one of society's most pressing questions of the day.
