E becoming Chief Wife and exposing the plotting of Henuttawy and Iset Unfortunately The Heretic ueen is an example of an obstacle which could be easily resolved in ive minutes if only the characters would take the necessary action but gets artificially strung out over an entire book Nefertari never reports Henuttawy and Iset s atrocious behaviour or plots to Ramesses it is only after two people have died and their plotting is exposed beyond all doubt that she reveals her knowledge of the plot Nefertari s unsatisfactory explanation The Glass Palace for this that everyone else told her that Henuttawy would make it seem to Ramesses like she was lying Frankly that doesn t cut the mustard Ramesses we are told loves Nefertari beyond all else and trusts her are we honestly to believe that had Nefertari told him about Henuttawy and Iset Ramesses would have been convinced that she was a liar and wouldn t have investigated the matter AT ALL Doesn t sound like a very trusting relationshipHenuttawy and Iset do not make credible antagonists and act like petulant teenagers than real adversaries Henuttawy at one point destroys a royal mural of Nefertari s mother Mutnodjmet in the book historically we do not know the identity of her parents This wanton destruction of the representation of an immortal ueen which according to Egyptian belief would have the effect of damaging Mutnodjmet s body in the afterlife would have been unacceptable evenrom a princess like Henuttawy At other points Henuttawy makes completely out of line snide comments such as And let us hope she does not have the blood of the Heretic King in her veins at Nefertari s own wedding Something Like Fate feast a comment so out of line that it was obviously going to earn Henuttawy the rebuke of all present It s the kind of ill thought out dig that smacks of a stroppy teen not a serious adversary Iset is just as bad Her ploys such as arguing with Nefertari about the temple plans simplyor the sake of it are utterly transparent and she comes across as whiny and childish And we re supposed to give these antagonists any credibility whatsoever With such weak opponents A Gun for Sale facing Nefertari the story completely lacks any tensionWorse the portrayals of almost every other character are eually one dimensional andlat Nefertari bears no resemblance at all to the complex vibrant real woman of history and is instead a cardboard cut out child prodigy who can do no wrong and is woefully lacking in any real Archetype (Archetype, faults orlaws This made it difficult to relate to her or empathise when she has to suffer through the childish pranks played on her by Iset and Henuttawy even though I elt like Moran was hitting me over the head with isn t Nefertari tragic You should sympathise with her with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer As or Ramesses he comes across as disappointingly gullible and weak manipulated by everyone around him The other characters were wafer thin and A Gun for Sale forgettableThe main premise of the entire book is that Nefertari would haveaced popular opposition due to being associated with Akhenaten and Nefertiti and their Aten worship Leaving aside the People of the Book fact that there are significant issues with the evidence and dating which make it improbable that Nefertari was Mutnodjmet s daughter and that Mutnodjmet was even Nefertiti s sister is it really plausible that peasants would have had close enough access to ueen Nefertari to have shouted heretic at her Even if they could get that close is it believable that any of them would ve dared to do so The answer is no and this is just common sense which applies even if you re not a historian But hypothetically if a large mob of angry peasants could have and wanted to heckle Nefertari during her wedding procession and later at th.
