Waiting on Wednesday: Cleopatra's Moon

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Cleopatra's Moon by Vicky Alvear Shecter
Pub. Date: August 1, 2011


Goodreads says, "The Luxe meets the ancient world in the extraordinary story of Cleopatra's daughter. Selene has grown up in a palace on the Nile with her parents, Cleopatra & Mark Antony—the most brilliant, powerful rulers on earth. But the jealous Roman Emperor Octavianus wants Egypt for himself, and when war finally comes, Selene faces the loss of all she's ever loved. Forced to build a new life in Octavianus's household in Rome, she finds herself torn between two young men and two possible destinies—until she reaches out to claim her own. This stunning novel brings to life the personalities & passions of one of the greatest dramas in history, & offers a wonderful new heroine in Selene."

*First of all, I love historical fiction and the story of Cleopatra and Mark Antony has always intrigued me. The premise of this book sounds incredible and lets be honest.....I was sold after I read it was The Luxe meets the ancient world. Sign me up!

  12. Wonderful choice, Christina :) I haven't heard of this one before but Cleopatra and Mark Anthony is(or was) a fascinating couple. So many myths surrounding their lives and deaths.
