Bestselling novelist Margaret George brings to life the glittering kingdom of Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile, in this lush, sweeping, and richly detailed saga. Told in Cleopatra’s own voice, this is a mesmerizing tale of ambition, passion, and betrayal, which begins when the twenty-year-old queen seeks out the most powerful man in the world, Julius Caesar, and does not end until, having survived the assassination of Caesar and the defeat of the second man she loves, Marc Antony, she plots her own death rather than be paraded in triumph through the streets of Rome.

Most of all, in its richness and authenticity, it is an irresistible story that reveals why Margaret George’s work has been widely acclaimed.

    " This was a good read, but I feel that it would have been much much more enjoyable if it had been about 300 or 400 pages shorter. It feels like every single breath that Cleopatra takes is described in excruciating detail, and I think a lot of the little details could have been cut out and the novel wouldn't have suffered for it. There are certain scenes that I felt warranted the excessive detail (ex. the first time she meets Cesear), but for the most part there was just overkill of detail. There is a section where George spends almost 3 pages trying to say the Cleopatra went for a swim. This swim is just a swim, it doesn't further the plot in any way, so why even mention it? Let alone spend 3 whole pages describing a pointless event. But if you have a lot of time on your hands and find Cleopatra interesting then I'd recommend this novel. "

    " The third MG work I read, having read Henry VIII and Mary Queen of Scots. I wasn't disappointed. "

    " Easy going book but likeable to read. I'd like to read more like this. "

    " Ye, gods! This is not a book for the faint of heart. Or for those who have trouble lifting heavy objects. I came so close to ditching this book so many times. Only the thought of all that time coming to nothing kept me going. "
