Call Her Queen Hatshepsut

Overview

Dapharoah69 is more than erotica. Having made a name for himself with The King of Erotica and Some Men Wear Panties, surprisingly he hangs up erotica to deliver his first full novel. Many thought his first novel would be the raunchiness he's known for. Others that have compared him to the likes of E Lynn Harris and Zane figured he'd write a book similar to Zane's "Addicted." He has surprised his editor, Kevin McNeir, and his fans with a haunting story of one mother's scandal and scorn as she uses her handsome son...

More About This Book

Overview

Dapharoah69 is more than erotica. Having made a name for himself with The King of Erotica and Some Men Wear Panties, surprisingly he hangs up erotica to deliver his first full novel. Many thought his first novel would be the raunchiness he's known for. Others that have compared him to the likes of E Lynn Harris and Zane figured he'd write a book similar to Zane's "Addicted." He has surprised his editor, Kevin McNeir, and his fans with a haunting story of one mother's scandal and scorn as she uses her handsome son as a pawn to get back at his father. He successfully tells the story of a transvestite.

Call Her Queen Hatshepsut Excerpt:
When I was seven years old, Mama and I showered together. I have never before viewed her naked body. I was curious so I asked her, "Mama, what are those?"
"Breasts," she said. "You have them too."
"Why don't they stick out?" I asked, careful not to get the plastic cap covering my perm wet.
"Because you're a child. You have to go through puberty."
"And what is that?" I asked, pointing to the bushy area of her hips.
"A penis."
"A penis, Mama?"
She smiled. "Yes."
"And what do I have?"
She pinched the little thing hanging from my groin.
"A vagina..."

Synopsis:
Chess is a competitive game between two players. Each piece has its own style of moving. But what happens when a deranged woman tricks two lovers into playing the game of their lives? Hatshepsut is a confused woman. She treats people the way she wants to be treated using an eight-by-eight grid of hope and empathy. The only things missing from her life is love and the sixteen pieces it's comprised of. It's missing because she was born a man.
Avarice James, Hatshepsut's mother, is an embattled plastic surgeon content on getting what she wants. Deeply rooted by the 64 squares of wickedness, two people she loved the most has castled her before she moved a pawn...the king, Kayak Burke, her son's father and her biggest rival, the rook, Rosa James, her identical twin sister. Rosa has always turned Avarice's existence into a horrid checkmate. She dressed like her, spoke her dialogue, and tarnished Avarice's reputation to achieve the unconscionable. Desperate, Rosa moves a pawn, trapping Kayak in a lustful game of sex that leads her and Avarice into unwanted pregnancies.
When Avarice diagonally moves the queen across white squares, taking a bishop and Rosa castles across black squares, taking a knight, Avarice does something so explosive that it inevitably turns Rosa, Kayak, and the death of his son into the pawns they truly are. Avarice masters the game with skill and patience...She brainwashes her son, disguises him as a girl and names him Hatshepsut. Any memory of Rosa and Kayak has been eradicated...until the time is right! This account extends all racial barriers. If you have ever loved, been betrayed and lost a child this harrowing story will open your heart and cause you to search your soul and question your faith. Call her Queen Hatshepsut:
Check mate!

    ENCORE!

    I could not put this fabulous yet riveting book down. Larry Wilson from Goulds, Florida is, hands down, one of the best writers of my Era. Job well done.

    Dapharoah69 is a Muli-Faceted Author

    For his big debut I was antsy about the snubbing of the erotic fiction that gave him is name, The King of Erotica. I opened the book expecting a stale story...boy was I wrong! Now that I think about it I am glad he used a different direction, wanting to be taken as a serious author. I love him even more now. He can carry a book, even if its about something other than the bedroom.

    OMG! WOW!

    I have nothing bad to say about this wonderful book. Wonderful! Page turner. Deep. Original. And educational, as only The King of Erotica can deliver. And the best part? It's NOT EROTICA! Bravo, King!

    A Must Read

    I read this amazing book in one day. I could not put it down nor stop myself from flipping through the pages speed reading because it is that freaking good! The issues displayed in this book through a disgruntled, evil mother named Avarice has redefined what one will do when destroyed and bet4rayed by love and the man its attached to. I recommend this book to anyone that is tired of watered down, unoriginal material.

    OMG CAN THIS MAN GET ANY BETTER????

    This is an amazing book. The plot, storyline is breathtaking. Started off a little slow but it picked up so good you forget about it. He leaves no stone unturned. The thought of a mother destroying her child and raising him as a female was sickening. And its even sickening knowing this type of stuff has happened to a lot of people. For his first book I give it 5 stars and they are very STRONG 5 stars. Wonderful book!

    Ladies and Gentleman THIS is the BOOK OF THE YEAR!

    I loved the book. It touched on a wide range of things, from one motehr's sheer lunacy to the system of terror she raised her son in making him think he was a female. This book won book of the year through The African American On the Move Book Club last night 12/6/2010. And it was well deserved.

    A Die Hard Fan

    I say that for one reason. Dapharoah69 is a very eclectic man that has become a brand. I was already familiar with his work, having read everything with his name and face on it. I was not prepared for the arsenals in Call Her Queen Hatshepsut.

    He elevates. He is not afraid to write new, daring story lines never before read or seen anywhere else. He educates, as well as schools us on African American Queens in Egypt. I had never heard of Hatshepsut, and because of this book and the beautiful watermarks throughout each page, he has informed me as well as taught me that maybe gays aren't born gay, maybe its not a choice and he challenges this via the heartbreaking story of Haitian mother Avarice James who goes on a torrent of deceit after her identical twin sister, Rosa, steals her life and identity by marrying Kayak Burke and having his child the same time Avarice had hers.

    The story is so dang spectacular I won't give anything away. But the stunts Avarice pulls out of misery not only affects Hatshepsut, her son she raised as a girl, but it destroys everything she touches.

    MUST READ!!

    Fabulous book!

    I'm a huge fan of The King of Erotica. And his first novel, devoid of erotica and sex, is just as good and powerful as his erotic fiction. Good job. A +!

    Avarice James, Rosa and Hatshepsut makes this book great

    Talk about a page turner. This is a book for anyone who has ever lost a child, anyone who has ever suffered love and its wrath. This is a book for mature audiences. the story of a transgendered woman, Hatshepsut, has not only helped me understand the psyche of a transgendered person, but I grew to love and appreciate them as people as well.

    THOUGHT-PROVOKING NOVEL

    If this is Dapharoah69's first offering, I can't wait to read more of his incredible work. Avarice James is one sick woman. I'm happy to say the book ends on a good note, and even the ending sent chills up my spine.

    I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR ANYBODY WITH A BOOK CLUB IF YOU'RE TIRED OF WATERED DOWN FICTION!

    He's Incomparable

    Call Her Queen Hatshepsut is, hands down, one of the best books ever written by Dapharoah69. His first full length novel shows his diversity, flexibility and his amazing talent. 5 Stars.

    Amazing first novel

    He is a radiant artist. More than just an author, he gives a powerful story about a deranged mother who turns out to be one of the most evil people I ever read about. The book gives me everything:voodoo, evil, deception, drama and brainwashing. A young boy grows into a beautiful woman. The catch? He was raised as a girl by his mother. The book is simply incredible.
