I think this was my third time through this book (Gillian Bradshaw is always good for a reread) and I enjoyed it more than previous times. The story is interesting as is the time period. However, the real excellence in this book is Bradshaw's creation of Ceasarion, son of Cleopatra. He has such a deep personality as he struggles to find his role in life following the death of his mother. I remembered being annoyed by his arrogance in previous readings. This time, though, I had a greater appreciation for the drastic life changes he makes and the strong character he becomes.
