Time travel, mystery, love and a Cat. Eye of Nefertiti by Maria Luisa Lang is a cat’s story. This is the first adult story that I have read where the protagonist is a cat, but he is way more than your average cat. Wrappa-Hamen is a magic cat, he talks, walks on two legs, reads, writes, and eats human food. He is also the Pharaoh’s cat, although he does go by many names in this book. I first thought the concept was good, this will be a good story, I mean ancient Egypt and cats…but once I got into the story I found that its fabulous. Ms. Lang does an awesome job with the character Wrappa-Hamen, he is a cat but he has such personality (not that regular cats don’t). She really nails Wrappa-Hamen’s priorities, such as food first, sleep second. He is vain and has an attitude. Yet, can be so loving when he wants to be. See, very cat like. However, if my daughter’s cat Mia, could talk, I’m not sure I would want to hear what is on her mind. I think most of it would be about the dog. The family that Wrappa-Hamen lives with, have such character. Elena is bossy, and definitely keeps them moving, she is the mother of the Pharaoh. Then there is the High Priest, who is a total book worm and at times clueless (father of the Pharaoh). And the young Pharaoh, who is now an adorable toddler, who loves Wrappa-Hamen. The settings were stunning, I was able to see them all so vividly. I think that time travel would be wonderful. The mystery was good, I enjoyed the clues and the explanations. A completely wonderful book, which makes my rating 5 stars. As the Baroness says anything that keeps you up at night is worth the stars. This is a Guest Review for Baroness' Book Trove. Thank you for the opportunity to review this book for your site. ~Jen If you would like to see other reviews like this one, check out BaronessBookTrove.com.

I was a bit concerned this being the second book in the Pharoah’s Cat series (and I didn’t read the first one), but Maria Lang did a great job giving enough background and context that I could still enjoy the book. You could read this one as a stand alone, but I think most series are better if you read all of them. This book touches on numerous genres, including time travel, action, comedy, and a bit of romance, and does a fantastic job incorporating them in the story. And as far as the history parts, they are very well written, and you can tell Lang did her research. The metaphysical aspects of the book combine seamlessly with the rest of the story. Which is really amazing since one of the characters is a talking cat. Land also handles dialogue very well, and had me chuckling out loud quite a few times. Highly recommend this one, especially if you enjoy reading about Egypt, magic, time travel, or talking cats.

Wrappa-Hammen and the high priest are back. They are living in modern day New York with Elena. She has given birth to the reincarnation of the beloved pharaoh. They decide to go to England for a job and while there Wrappa Hammen and the high priest are enlisted to help Nefertiti. She is determined to end her immortality and the only one able to help her is a crazy cat who just so happens to be a cat with human abilities. This book was just as good if not better than the first. I love this cat with his attitude and character. This book was another book filled with action, comedy, time travel, history, and a little bit of romance. They journey to Stonehenge and back to Ancient Egypt in a fast paced novel. The characters are so easy to love and the story is deeply enthralling and unique. It can definitely bring a good laugh. I hope to read more about this crazy cat in the future.

Wrappa 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.

Great Prequel I read the first book, The Pharaoh's Cat, and I enjoyed it. This is supposed to be the prequel to that story, and I love prequels that come after the fact. This book has great twists and surprises, and it's more just the Cat. This cat has many human attributes and that lends to the light-heartedness of this story. This story is creative and the backdrop of Egypt, where cats are truly king, brings this whole story together. You don't have to read the other one to read this, as it's a stand alone, but once you've read this, you'll want to read the first one.

This time traveling tale has plenty of surprising twists and turns, along with some very intriguing bits of history, that had me hooked from the beginning! While the book has the same light-hearted antics as The Pharoah's Cat, readers get a chance to see a more serious side of Wrappa-Hamen as he saves another Pharoah from a dismal fate and falls in love. The metaphysical and factual aspects of the book are expertly combined to create an intriguing milieu that makes the plot even more compelling and brings the characters to life. Wrappa-Hamen's capers are hilarious! The clever and humorous dialogue showcase the author's creativity and wit while imparting crucial information about the setting. Light-hearted, fun, and bittersweet at times, The Eye of Nefertiti is a fabulous story that will transport readers to different locations in the past and present. Highly recommended for people with a penchant for Egyptology and alternate theories on history who want to avoid overly decorous books on the subject.
