    " I liked this even better than Black Ships. Same high quality of writing and scholarly knowledge but the plotting was smoother and the characters more sympathetic and relatable. Very enjoyable! "

    " This was one of the best books I have read in a while. Nice mix of history and fantasy. Really promising new writer! "

    " Loved, Loved, Loved this book "

    " I really liked Ms. Graham's first novel, "Black Ships", but I was disappointed in this one, mostly because of the explicit sex that I did my best to skip. Ms. Graham seems to have a thing for men who swing both ways and women who accept such behavior from the men they love. That element was present in her first book but much more so in this one. I doubt I'd have finished the book had I just gotten it out of the library. "

    " Picked up from the library and just started. Good so far... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 12/17/2013

    " This book was completely fantastic. I loved Graham's take on Cleopatra and Egyptian magic. In this book you really step back in time and walk the streets of the greatest city of the classical world: Alexandria. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Prescott | 12/2/2013

    " once again, I love how Graham takes you back in time with her books, and I like getting the perspective of Cleopatra's handmaid because it gives you a bit of insight of why Cleopatra acted the way she did, and not just because she was a "meddlesome slut" like my professors would lead us to believe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pancha | 12/1/2013

    " There were times when I didn't really like Charmian's personality, but in the end I came to like her. Another gripping book by Graham. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jami | 11/28/2013

    " I didn't like this one as much as Black Ship. The vitality of the era was there and I liked reading about Cleopatra but I found myself bored and not very into the story. It had kind of a blah blah blah feel for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 11/22/2013

    " This is one of my favorite reads that I love to go back to. Paints a great and relatable tale of the women behind Cleopatra from a first hand perspective. Highly recommend! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen Rendahl | 11/21/2013

    " Another blend of history and magic and romance from Jo Graham. Not as good as Black Ships, but I'm not sure why. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 10/24/2013

    " A wonderful novel centered around Cleopatra's hand maiden who was her 1/2 sister. Seems like this could become a series-have to look into it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Draven | 9/15/2013

    " After this book, I'm a total fangirl of Jo Graham. Mix Cleopatra lore with an intelligent exploration of alternative lifestyles and ancient feminist thought and I am SO THERE... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kiaraa Mathers | 9/1/2013

    " Really need to read it again because I have some details of it being amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 7/2/2013

    " There aren't many books that I absolutely cannot get enough of, but Graham consistently writes them. This is the second in her series and probably my favorite so far. The characters are amazingly real and the storytelling draws me in. Graham is definitely proving to be one of my favorite authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Mason | 6/7/2013

    " The story of Cleopatra, as told by her handmaiden and half-sister. In a time when people were less removed from their deities. I learned a lot of history from this and enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 3/5/2013

    " A good sophomore turn from the author of Black Ships, Graham's latest moves from Greece to Egypt, treating Cleopatra as an incarnation of Isis, along with her two half-sisters. Interesting and entertaining - a good entry in the genre of fantasy based on ancient history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Doran-girard | 11/10/2012

    " I really enjoyed this historical romance novel. The characters were well developed and their story was interwoven well with events of the time. "
