The Bull of Min
Historical fiction, written as L. M. Ironside
The final volume of The She-King, a saga chronicling the lives of the Thutmoside family of ancient Egypt.
“I know,” Satiah called. Her voice was musical, light, confident as a king's. “It's the Bull of Min you remember, Thutmose. You remember, and you fear.”
Conspiracy and treason simmer in the northern reaches of the Two Lands. Thutmose is crippled by guilt over past wrongs. Hatshepsut is subdued by the grief of betrayal and loss. Meryet, the new Great Royal Wife, is the sole force holding the royal family – and Egypt – together.
When an unexpected challenger to the succession arises, all three are faced with impossible choices. To protect what she most loves, Meryet will match wits against a demon from the past. Hatshepsut stands on the brink of the ultimate sacrifice. And Thutmose, torn between throne and family, must commit an unthinkable act against Hatshepsut...or allow Egypt to fall into the hands of an unpredictable killer.

Incredibly moving, heartbreaking...The best depiction of [Hatshepsut's and Thutmose III's] relationship I've seen in fiction. ...There's a lot to love about The Bull of Min ...seriously: read this book. Read the entire saga.
