The Shards of Heaven by Michael Livingston
"Well written. Colors in between the lines of history to add a fascinating dimension to the Antony and Cleopatra story. "
The Shards of Heaven by Michael Livingston
"An interesting pantheistic romp. Intertwines history & myth off of ancient sources extremely well. It is the kind of book I WISH I could write. I can't wait for HBO to do the television adaptation."
