Hatshepsut is a princess and her father Thutmose I is ruler of Egypt. He dies and he has another son, Hatshepsut's half brother. Hatshepsut does not like him but he gets married to her and becomes a pharaoh. Then he dies from his pet cat which scratched him. He has another son with a lesser wife Isis. Hatshepsut does not like her step brother, so she sends him to a school for princes. Uunfortunatly, he comes back too soon, so she send him to look over Egypt's great mines hoping he will get killed. If you read this book you will find out more in a greater detail.

This is a story about a girl that you see her grow up in the book. You will see her as a princess, Queen, Pharaoh. Hatshepsut is a brat when she was young and she stays the same way throw the book in her way. You learn a lots of egyptain ceremonies.I would recmend this book to a person that is studying Egypt or Pharaohs. But over all it was a good book.

The book was about a princess named Hatshepsut who wanted to be pharaoh.When her father and brothers died she had to marry her half brother was named Thutmose II and he was thin and pail. They had two children. Thutmose II was scratched by a cat and it got really bad. Before he died he said he wanted his son Thutmose III to be pharaoh but Hatshepsut had to be pharaoh until he is old enough. Hatshepsut ruled she had a vice pharaoh named Senmut and Hatshepsut fell in love with him. Thutmose III is old enough to become pharaoh but Hatshepsut will not give up being pharaoh. Senmut drew pictures of stautes of him in Hatshepsut's tomb. Hatshepsut found out and got really mad.

Wow! This book was extremely detailed. I just couldn't put it down. Usually I love to read about Fantasy, like Fire Bringer or Harry Potter. Egypt is left in the hands of an 11 year old boy with the Queen Mother at his right hand. Well, this independent mother of an Egyptian princess has other plans in store for Egypt. After overruling the boy and sent in exile, she takes over the throne and falls in love with an architect. But she must not trust any one because only one woman before her has taken the role of Pharoah in Egypt. This book takes us along a struggling woman's journey to prove to everyone, including her enemies, that a woman can have the power to rule a country.
