In the wake of tragic lovers Marc Antony and Cleopatra’s deaths, their twins Selene and Alexander kneel before the new emperor Octavian. In the foreign land of Rome, the siblings learn to navigate the treacherous diplomacies behind the all-too-wide smiles and honeyed lies. As Cleopatra’s children, they represent a significant claim to power…when they’re together. As new love and opportunities arise to pull Alexander away from Selene, this brave young woman defies tradition and endures  stinging rebukes to escape from the decadent trappings of Rome. Freedom and a return to her ancestral lands are her goals but who can she turn to in this city of deceit? Her allies may be closer than she thinks and they would do anything to see her rise to power. Bringing ancient Rome to vivid life, this historical fiction novel is a great read for teens and adults. Check Our Catalog
