  • Abandoned by her beloved sister Cleopatra and an indifferent father, young Arsinoe must fight for her survival in the bloodthirsty royal court when her half-sister Berenice seizes Egypt's throne. To survive, she escapes the palace for the war-torn streets of Alexandria. When their deposed father Ptolemy marches on the city with a Roman army, both daughters must decide where their allegiances truly lie, and Arsinoe grapples with the truth: that the only way to survive her dynasty is to rule it

Summary
Dysfunction, disorder, and debauchery are the hallmarks of the Ptolemies, the last royal dynasty to rule Egypt. Although Cleopatra is perhaps the best known member of her infamous family, this descriptive and richly detailed novel demonstrates that her sisters, Berenice and Arsinoe, are also forces to be reckoned with. Beginning when Berenice stages a palace coup that sends Cleopatra and their father fleeing to Rome, the story of her brief, troubled reign unfolds alongside Arsinoe's desperate attempts to escape from captivity. -- Description by Gillian Speace
