Sphinx’s Princess was one of my favorite reads last year and it’s really no surprise. I’m shamelessly obsessed with Ancient Egypt. I have not had the chance to read the newest book about Nefertiti, but the paperback edition will be released next month so I can add it to my collection and it will match the first book in format.
It’s really easy to see why I would love this cover. Obviously the Egyptian feel with the outfit and that backdrop would set me to drooling upon sight. Yet there’s also her poise and that half in shadows gaze. It kind of gives the impression that as queen she’s going to be a force to reckon with. And that purple overcast to much of the whole design! It’s just beautiful and I really like the flowers in her hair.
