Publisher's Summary

In the second novel in New York Times best-selling author Stephanie Dray's thrilling trilogy, Cleopatra's daughter seeks the power to stand against an empire....

Having survived her perilous childhood as a royal captive of Rome, Selene has pledged her loyalty to Emperor Augustus, swearing to become his very own Cleopatra. But even though she is forced to marry a man of the emperor's choosing, Selene will not allow her new husband to rule in her name. Quickly establishing herself as a capable leader, she wins the love of her new subjects and makes herself vital to Rome by bringing forth bountiful harvests with the magic of Isis flowing through her veins. 

As she rules the kingdom of Mauretania and contends with imperial politics and religious persecution, Selene beguiles her way to the precipice of power with the ultimate goal of taking back her birthright. But the price of winning back her mother's Egyptian throne may be more than she's willing to pay.

Love this series, but...

Just finishing the last book and, generally, have LOVED this series and this author. One concern that will dictate future buys from this author. This book, book two, inched too close to scripted soft porn for my comfort level in one encounter. Sexual encounters shouldn't be described in such detail for the masses, like me, who consider them to be a more private matter! It takes a great book and lowers it to a more base standard.

Ready for it to be over

After listening to Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran, I wanted more to the story. I thought this book would be a great continuation to the story, but I am not happy with it at all. Based on lectures I’ve heard, it seems more inaccurate to history, that and the magic in the book feels very pediatric. Probably a better book for teens.

Beautiful performance and good storyline

I liked the second book almost as much as the first. I am just about to start the last one and am pretty excited to see where the fate takes Celine next!

Too much melodrama; not enough history

Too much time was spent in this novel on melodramatic romance stories. I found the second half of this book boring and repetitive.
