    Story
    "Wonderful Historical Fantasy"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I've read Margaret Atwood's CLEOPATRA and I find this a perfect companion piece. Both cover the historical events surrounding the fall of Alexandria perfectly from different perspectives. The narrator's voice is rich and well modulated. You are drawn in, and that's what good audio is all about.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charmian, who is also the protagonist...it would be difficult to choose a different character in this one because the book is invested in that one character so deeply.


    What does Gigi Shane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. Shane captured a variety of voices and managed to remain true to them. The emotion feels very real - genuine. By the end of the book, as far as the reader is concerned, she IS Charmian ...


    Who was the most memorable character of Hand of Isis and why?

    Again, Charmian, and again, because most of the book is her interacting with the land, and the other characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This book takes you places you don't expect to go, and is also a good primer on the events surrounding Rome's wooing, and final capture, of Alexandria. You come to love, and to hate the characters right along with the narrator - and the protagonist - and when it's over, you find yourself withing for more.

    "Wonderful Story and Narration"

    I really enjoyed this book the whole ancient Egypt Roman storyline. The narration was just wonderful I listened to the audiobook in a day, the story of Isis.

    Story
    "The word is Cavalry, not Calvary"
    What does Gigi Shane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Makes me crazy when this word is mispronounced. Calvary is where Jesus was crucified. Cavalry are mounted soldiers.
