This book grabbed my attention from page one. It created a sense of being back in time and experiencing the events. It was incredibly well written and entertaining. The story of Selene, Cleopatra's daughter,was captivating and I didn't want it to end.

By far my FAVORITE read of 2011, and a book I'll read over and over.

Most people know the story of Cleopatra and her love affair with Marc Anthony. For me the story of her children was unknown to me. The story of Cleopatra does not end after the she dies from the snake bite. Cleopatra had three children that survived her, Selene Kleopatra, her twin brother Alexander and a younger brother Ptolemy.

After Octavian conquers Egypt he relocates her children to Rome forcing them to embrace the Roman gods and culture. What I enjoy about Moran's books is not only do I have the opportunity to read a great book, when I turn the last page I feel that I walk away knowing the history of the era. Moran takes the time to research her subject matter. As you read the pages, you can envision young Selene, walking the streets of Rome, studying the architecture and dreaming of her beloved Alexandria. Of course at the end of the book is a brief history of Selene's life after the book ended.

I would truly appreciate a sequel to this novel, chronicling Selene's life as she grew older.

For anyone who wants to read a great book and become engrossed in Cleopatra's daughter's story and life in Rome this is a great novel.

This is such a beautifully written book. Moran is adept at flawlessly weaving facts of Roman times into the fiction of her story; it makes for a very fluid read. I've been to Rome and the Capri (the two main settings in the book) and Moran does a wonderful job of describing them just as the are/were. The story of Kleopatra Selene is so captivating, emotional, and exciting that I couldn't stop reading. The story could have gone on for another 500 pages and I still would have loved every word. 5 stars! I have already purchased Nefertiti and The Heretic Queen and I can't wait to read them :)
