  • "Charmian's shy hopes, failures and devotion to Cleopatra and Isis make her one of the most memorable "witnesses to history" to emerge from fantasy in quite some time."  --- Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

    "Although most readers will already be aware of Cleopatra's sad fate...the journey, and the vivid descriptions of life in the cosmopolitan city of Alexandria, make this book well worth reading."  --- Kirkus (Starred Review)
