A very good historical fiction book that is hard to put down once started. The author brings Egypt around 30 BC to bright life, with a great story tied in to Caesarian, who was purported to be Cleopatra’s son by Julius Caesar. The author takes liberties, as she must, imagining how Caesarian talked and felt; and what may have happened to him as another, better acknowledged son of Caesar ascended to power. But nothing seems forced or incredible, and the end result is an edifying and good read.
