Publisher's Summary

Princess of Egypt.... Cleopatra Selene is the only daughter of the brilliant Queen Cleopatra of Egypt and General Marcus Antonius of Rome. She’s grown up with jewels on her arms, servants at her feet, and all the pleasures of a palace at her command, and she wants only to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a great and powerful queen.

Prisoner of Rome.... Then the Roman ruler Octavianus, who has always wanted Egypt’s wealth, launches a war that destroys all Selene has ever known. Taken to live in Octavianus’ palace in Rome, she vows to defeat him and reclaim her kingdom at all costs. Yet even as she gathers support for her return, Selene finds herself torn between two young men and two different paths to power. Will love distract her from her goal - or help her achieve her true destiny?

Epic in scope and ravishing in detail, this audiobook reveals the extraordinary life of a girl long hidden in history: the remarkable Cleopatra Selene.

Great Book

Really interesting book. The audio production of this book was really different with the music at the end of ever chapter. At first I thought it was kinda annoying but it grows on you. Also Shecter uses the different spelling for the names some of the the main characters. So check out the reference guide before you start the book. Overall, a good listen.

Wonderful submersion into antiquity.

Shelter deftly describes a world so vivid you'll feel as if you're there. The characters are dimensional and believable. This historical fiction should be on every teacher of Roman and Greek history's reading list.

Highly recommend!

This is definitely a well done version of Cleopatra Selene’s story. There are a lot of books that try to do the same but this one really breathes life into the characters and their journeys- one of my personal favorites!

Amazing!!!

I have always been obsessed with the story of Cleopatra ever since I was a little girl! I always wondered what became of her children and what the whole experience must have been like for them. This book does an amazing job of telling their stories, especially that of Cleopatra Selene the only daughter who inherits an equally great and damaging legacy from her infamous mother. Beautifully written, great pacing, entertaining, exciting and well researched!!! 5/5 stars!!
