Bestselling novelist Margaret George brings to life the glittering kingdom of Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile, in this lush, sweeping, and richly detailed saga.

Editorial Reviews

"Fans of the author who loved her biographies of Henry VIII and Mary Queen of Scots will find this story of Egypt's ancient queen equally engrossing. The author's impeccable research brings a long ago civilization thoroughly to life, and her portraits of Cleopatra, Caesar and Antony are wonderful. A spellbinding book." -Barbara Taylor Bradford"A thrilling story...[Cleopatra's] 'memoirs' are vivid and enthralling. Read them." -Washington Post"[A] time machine...It's as if you lived there, walked the streets and counseled the Queen throughout her turbulent life." -Cincinnati Enquirer"Awash in sensuous, jewel-like detail... As if ancient frescoes had sprung alive." -Entertainment Weekly"George is such a skilled writer the book seems built no the intimate details of the five senses" -Memphis Commercial Appeal"Readers looking to be transported to another place and time will find their magic carpet here." -Publishers Weekly"
