Historical Fiction Friday

Last summer Michelle Moran's book Cleopatra's Daughter came out, and now we have another book about Selene. Ancient history is interesting to me, so I am looking forward to reading this one and comparing Moran's book to Shecter.

Selene has grown up in a palace on the Nile with her parents, Cleopatra & Mark Antony--the most brilliant, powerful rulers on earth. But the jealous Roman Emperor Octavianus wants Egypt for himself, & when war finally comes, Selene faces the loss of all she's ever loved. Forced to build a new life in Octavianus's household in Rome, she finds herself torn between two young men and two possible destinies--until she reaches out to claim her own.

This stunning novel brings to life the personalities & passions of one of the greatest dramas in history, & offers a wonderful new heroine in Selene.

This book hits the stores on August 1, 2011
