whisks the princess to Rome against her will I was the daughter of the greatest ueen of Egypt who ever lived Even if it meant my death I would fight to reclaim what had been stolen from me It would be a dishonor to her memory to do anything else The deader the better and in this reimagining of Cleopatra s daughter Cleopatra Selene we re treated to the whole motherload of sex manipulation greed and ancient political maneuvering BRING IT ONMarc Antony and Cleopatra are dead The infamous lovers who tried to create an empire are no And not only do they leave behind a fractured kingdom but three small children as well Ptolemy Philidelphius and twins Alexandros Helios and Cleopatra Selene And so began the slow excruciating process of our undoing Now at the mercy of the Roman empire the brutal Roman emperor Octavian makes them slaves and send them to live with his sister and Antony s ex wife Octavia and Livia But it is Cleopatra who is bound and determined to reclaim Egypt back in the name of her mother and will stop at nothing to go back the home she knows and loves There are enemies at every corner however who would absolutely love to harm the children of the Egyptian who stole their beloved general from them Will Cleopatra Selene use her wits like her mother and find a way out of the Roman s clutches Or will she submit to her mortal enemiesThere is a lot known about Cleopatra the last ruler of Egypt I mean there are literally hundreds and thousands of books written about her and even written about her passionate and tempestuous relationships with Caesar and Antony There is little written however about her four children particularly those sired by Marc Antony I for one loved this lush reimagining of the children s lives and what happened to him after their parent s died I for one think that Cleopatra and Antony were uite selfish in leaving their children to fend for themselves But in this book the author imagines what horrors they might have gone through at the hands of their enemies the Romans Over the course of none years we get a look inside their lives and the various conspiracies led about them And it s juicy worthy of the best soap operas out there and certainly makes for better entertainment than that unimaginably horrible looking Dynasty remakeCleopatra the elder was reportedly a highly intelligent individual Cleopatra the Younger not so much I mean she is very clever when she wants to be but doesn t always think things through rationally She sees the start but doesn t think about what could go wrong This made her slightly annoying but you have to admire her to knowing what she wants and trying so damn hard to make it happen She wants to go back to her beloved Egypt no matter what the cost May I live as you live may I rule as you rule may I die as you die Alexandros and Ptolemy are Cleopatra s brothers Alexandros is not nearly as passionate as his sister and resigns himself to the fate that he will never see his homeland or family again He kind of even goes through a period of self destruction where he doesn t care what the heck happens to him Ptolemy was absolutely adorable I loved his curiosity and all around adorableness Octavia and Livia are the sort of guardians of the three children Octavia is kind and generous at first but in the end she is nothing than a jealous psychopath Livia is cold in the beginning but she manages to redeem herself over timeAnd then we have the two strapping lads who try to win little Cleopatra s heart Marcellus and Juba You must make a choice the Goddess said Is that my only choice to choose between two men Marcellus is the son of Octavia He lusts after anything that moves even though it s uite easy to find him charismatic and charming He is also an ardent cat hater which automatically makes him unlikable in my eyes Juba is a former Nubian prince who is enslaved by the Romans and eventually becomes a general I loved him He was sweet kind generous a cat lover and literary However I thought that they were nothing than just eye candy in the throes of this political game of manipulation I would have liked to have seen substance in themPerhaps the biggest advantage this book has to offer is its knowledge of ancient politics and how to play games of political manipulation in an age where there weren t autocracies and laws to play by It was anybody s game and two weapons were involved wine and sex Mainly because they were the only two political weapons on hand to have I m not counting wars because politicians really didn t play a first hand part in those And boy did the author succeed The most interesting parts were the beginning of the novel where Marc and Cleopatra are still alive and the middle part where Cleopatra is picking up and using subtle manipulations to play the game And she plays it damn well Historical fiction isn t everyone s thing but if you re a fan of anything ancient or Cleopatra related you ll love this book Wajah

Cleopatra's Moon Read & download Ú PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Vicky Alvear Shecter Ì 2 Summary Summary Cleopatra's Moon Selene grew up in a palace on the Nile under parents Cleopatra and Mark Antony the most brilliant powerful rul A beautifully written tale Cleopatra s Moon seemed to promise a stirring historical adventure of intrigue power struggles and murders in the night And it had all of that and It is the part which bothered me Looking on the surface this book was good Cleopatra Selene though inept at practically all that she attempted was not the worst heroine to have and her brother Ptolemy absolutely adorable The descriptions of Alexandria were rich and vivid so much so that the Reader could almost feel the warm spiced wind and the blessed cool of palm treesBut then you look deeper or rather you read further into the book While the Author did a splendid job with research there is a rather unnecessary scene that seems to only serve the purpose of painting the Jews as well idiots who cannot even explain the depth of their beliefs which is just ridiculous They do not think like the Jews of the Ancient world but like modern day Evangelicals It s painfully obvious that the Author spent time looking up the Egyptian religion than Jewish beliefs and I have to wonder why she even bothered putting the scene in at allFinally there is the fact that the Author actually portrays the Romans too accurately Yes I am really voicing this as a complaint and here is why as I said she portrays the Romans for what they were a disgusting perverted culture whose economy was based solely on conuest She also does a fairly good job of portraying the Egyptians the same way but still manages to glorify them by picturing Cleopatra Marc Antony and Julius Caesar as being not that bad of people Where she got that Julius Caesar was kind and merciful to his enemies I will never know because any small reading of historical accounts written by Ancient historians will reveal that Julius Caesar was one of the most disgusting individuals that ever livedPutting that minor flaw aside let us return to her portrayal of the Romans This is where the sexual content comes into play I will say this the Author never becomes explicit but she doesn t soften it either Twice Cleopatra Selene is almost raped there are numerous references to whores men liking young boys or other men too close to explicit for comfort groping and kissing scenes again no one wants to read descriptions of French kissing and then finally we do have a bedroom scene which I did not fully read but it looked close enough to explicit to be absolutely inappropriate ch 44 pg 315 316 But surely this is nothing to be irritated over because it s an interrupted bedroom scene so that makes it okay I am being sarcastic by the wayI realize that it is very hard to write a historical story containing Romans without mentioning their pervertedness but it can be done tastefully and even ignored to an extent Rosemary Sutcliff managed to write tons of Roman based books and never once found it necessary to delve as deeply into their disgusting habits as Vicky Shecter didIn the end we are left with a story that could have been excellent well worth spending 1800 on in fact But it s so populated with sexuality and immoral behavior which by the way isn t necessarily painted as a bad thing when Cleopatra Selene thinks her twin brother has a male lover she thinks it s cute that it makes it uncomfortable and practically impossible to read I wish I had better things to say but that is how it is
