Cleopatra's Moon, Vicky Alvear Shecter
Today I finished a book called Cleopatra's Moon. It's about Cleopatra's daughter, Cleopatra Selene. (Selene is the Greek Goddess of the moon.) It was a very interesting work of historical fiction. It seemed to accurately portray the intrigue and political scheming that went on. Much of the book is set after Cleopatra's death. Cleopatra Selene it taken to live in the palace of Octavianus, the ruler who defeated her parents, Mark Antony and Cleopatra. It has romance and adventure. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes adventure, suspense, and historical fiction. It's a great book.4 1/2 stars.
