As if temple politics wasn't enough, now Ani has to deal with the royal court.
Having aided with the mummification of the previous Pharaoh, Ani is somewhat surprised to discover she's expected to stay in Egypt for longer, this time to serve during the coronation of the next one.
Despite her budding friendship with the new Queen, Ani thought she'd be at home, but instead, she's dealing with the displeasure of the High Blessed, attention from the royal court, and run-ins with her sort-of-ex.
At least she doesn't have to do it alone, and with Nik and Matia by her side, she can do anything.
Court Of The Queen is book 11 in the Apprentice Of Anubis, an urban fantasy series based on Egyptian mythology and featuring an established couple, a jackal familiar, and the duties of an embalmer.
