The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is the first in a gripping series of murder and intrigue set in the Egyptian court of long ago. Isikara helps to save the Prince’s life by fleeing with him to Nubia where they hope to find help and then supports him in his stand against the ruthless Queen Nefertiti. Be sure to also check out the second in the series Eye of The Sun.

Synopsis

Eye Of The Moon by Dianne Hofmeyr

When Isikara discovers the beautiful Queen Tiy of Egypt has been killed and her eldest son, Tuthmosis, is facing the same fate, she finds herself on the run with the young prince to get help to return him to his rightful place on the throne of Egypt. They must travel to Nubia to find allies - a journey which takes them along the Nile, across the desert and through bustling market towns, all the while avoiding their pursuers, the High Priests who wish to silence them. But there are dangers in the desert and all around. Who can they trust? And where will their adventure lead them? A gripping and pacy tale, packed with fascinating historical detail of Egypt.
