Surrounded by the exotic luxuries of ancient Alexandria, courted by the world's most powerful men, Roxanne was a woman of privilege—and one with no memory of her past. Flashes of recollection bewildered her: images of a man as golden as any god, of a tiny baby torn too soon from her loving arms.

DNF. I read half, and though the story was ok, I realized I could stop reading it at any time and it wouldn't bother me. Then my Magic series by Iiona Andrews came in. I read one sentence and decided to ditch this book. At least for now.

It was too political without any engagement in the story. The characters were likeable, but there was never any connection to them, and very little developement.

My not so professional opinion? Eh.

This book is dark, amusing, funny, and serious. It can be a tad too descriptive at times though. Other than that, it's an amazing book I would recommend to die hard romantics that like a little twist to the stories.
Clearly meant as a sequel to The Conqueror, which I have not read, but that wasn't too disturbing. It's been a very long time since I've read anything set at the time of Ptolomy, Alexander the Great etc. Not the book of the summer, but an interesting read nonetheless.
