This book was amazing, I was so sad when it came to and end! A great story centred around Cleopatra's sisters whom history often overlooks.

Great book! It gives you an interesting insight to what happens when a royal leaves and what happens to those left behind. I definitely recommend this to people who love reading about famous people and rulers but want to see it from another person's perspective.

I could hardly put this book down. I have always been fascinated by Ancient Egyptian History. I felt as if I was right in the book with the characters. I hope Emily Holleman will continue to write more books.
