The life of King Tut, boy king, pharaoh of Egypt, became a point of fascination for many with the discovery of his tomb. He was so young to be in such an esteemed position. He was also very young to think of having a wife. In fact, he had more than one wife, according to this story. Sunni is Tut's first and, initially, his favourite wife. As the story unfolds and the plot thickens, Tut's affections turn to other women and sub-plots and suspense arise. Sunni is not one to be cast aside and the reader is soon made aware of that simple fact. However, in the end.... well, I won't let you know the ending, although we all end up there in one way or another.

Past and present lives intermingle in author Julianna Boyer's life. She has been fascinated with the life of King Tut since she was a child. She says, "Between that passion, dreams, and a past-life regression, I was inspired to write this book.” Who would have thought that a vision of a boy in one's dreams would lead back to a past life as royalty, in ancient Egypt, no less. The time period has been well researched and the author is obviously very knowledgeable of life, nobility and royal marriages in ancient Egypt. As the reader becomes aware of the fact that Sunni is really Tut's half-sister, the reader starts to comprehend why the pharaohs and people of royal blood in ancient Egypt were so sickly and lived such short lives - too many inter-family marriages. Sunni is a very riveting tale by a first-time author. Good research and good story-telling skills. Well done, a very enjoyable read.
