Book Description

"Love. Beauty. Power. Treachery."

Product Description

*THIS 2019 EDITION INCLUDES EDITORIAL REVISIONS*

For lovers of classic historical fiction, a sumptuous and enthralling novel about history’s most intriguing queen from internationally bestselling author, Colin Falconer.

"This is the riveting story of Egypt's last and greatest queen ... creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman who thrived and triumphed in a world ruled by men." - Publishers Weekly

Cleopatra is barely more than a girl when she inherits an empire stretching from the scorched deserts of lower Egypt to the shining Mediterranean metropolis of Alexandria, with its famed library and lighthouse.

But it is Rome, not Egypt, that rules the world. Her rule is constantly imperilled by court conspiracies and Roman treachery. She survives through her alliances with the great Julius Caesar, a wily politician and battle-hardened general with a weakness for women; and the charismatic but reckless Marc Antony. The love affair between Antony and Cleopatra remains one of the ancient world's greatest love affairs.

But when the tide finally turns against her, she plots a last, spectacular manoeuvre to save her children and her empire.

Perfect for fans of Margaret George, Colleen McCullough and Wilbur Smith.

Cleopatra was originally published in the US as When We Were Gods, and has since been translated into seven languages. It was a bestseller in Brazil, Australia and Germany.

What reviewers are saying about CLEOPATRA, Daughter of the Nile

“Falconer’s Cleopatra is vulnerable, intelligent and liberated, defined by her wit as much as her beauty.” - Publishers Weekly

"A wonderful story … not just a rehash of history but rather a refreshing look at this clever and charismatic leader … pulsating with the passion of a woman." – Womens Weekly Book of the Month

Makes dry history into a real rip-roaring read. In Falconer’s hands, Cleopatra is a smart, sexy and sassy heroine.” - Australian Womens Forum Book of the Month

Spectacular historical fiction blazing with intrigue, romance and dramatic action." – Booklist

"Falconer paints an enthralling fictional portrait of the one of the most powerful and beguiling women of all ages.’ - Margaret Flanagan, American Library Association
