I was so excited to read this book. I love Egypt, and Cleopatra has always been one of the most captivating subject.

Because of that, it’s hard for me to review this. I was hoping for so much more.

My review copy on the kindle was missing lots of letters, so it was very difficult to compensate and figure out what words meant. That would have made me give up on most books and DNF. But with this one I persevered. I wanted to read the whole story.

Cleo is pretty whiny and very child like….but since she was a princess/goddess and very young, I suppose that fits. The story was very different from what I was expecting. To me it didn’t really feel like the story of Cleopatra as a child, but rather a YA book drawing on supernatural and ancient religions.

Ultimately, this was a middle of the road book for me, so I would give it 2.5 stars.
