There she fights desperately to keep her brothers safe from poisonings and secret assassination attempts. Selene plots furiously to do what she knows her mother Cleopatra would want her to do reclaim her destiny as the queen of Egypt. While plotting with her mother's agents in Rome, Selene knows her best shot at retaking Egypt's throne is to beguile her despised captor's nephew, Marcellus, the beautiful, golden-haired heir to Octavanius. But Selene unexpectedly falls in love with a fellow political prisoner setting off a deeply personal crisis: Does Selene choose the man she loves over the man who could help her rule Egypt?
Selene is determined to live up to her mother's last whispered words to her 'You have the heart of a great and powerful queen,' but at what price?

Or can she take destiny into her own hands and create a future her mother never imagined?

Will Selene make the same decisions and mistakes as her brilliant but doomed mother? Or will she find a way to forge an identity and future all her own? ??
Take a trip to mysterious ancient Egypt where a young Selene learns to follow Isis and curse her enemies with Anubis, the god of death and embalming and prickly Rome where political intrigues and secret alliances are the currency of survival.
