Queen of the Heavens
A Novel by Kingsley Guy
Published by Middle River Press
Review by Christiana Gaudet
Queen of the Heavens, a new novel by Kingsley Guy, is one of the best books I have read in a long time.
Kingsley Guy has crafted a story about Tuya, a young Egyptian girl who becomes the mother of Ramesses II, Pharaoh of Egypt.
This story works on many levels and will appeal to a great number of readers.
It is rare for a male author to truly write in a woman's voice, but Guy accomplishes this handily. It is easy to see the world through Tuya's eyes. Queen of the Heavens is a page-turner; a story of love, family and politics.
Queen of the Heavens is more than just a great story. Readers interested in Egyptology will enjoy Guy's well-researched view of ancient Egypt. Modern spiritual healers and metaphysicians will be thrilled with Guy's descriptions of Tuya's experiences with the Neters, the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt. Tuya's ability to heal the sick and wounded transcends culture and religion. Her healing rituals and techniques will ring true with anyone who has studied Reiki, crystal healing or energy work.
Queen of the Heavens is in no way preachy, yet it manages to teach universal spiritual principles. For some this will be a nice reminder. For others it will be no less than transformative.
Queen of the Heavens is a first novel from a respected journalist. I'm sure it won't be his last.
