Product Description

THE STORY OF ONE OF HISTORY’S MOST COMPELLING AND BRILLIANT WOMEN "Falconer's Cleopatra is vulnerable, intelligent and liberated, defined by her wit as much as her beauty" - Publishers Weekly Cleopatra VII of Egypt was barely more than a girl when she inherited the richest empire in the world - one that stretched from the scorching deserts of lower Egypt to the shining Mediterranean metropolis of Alexandria with its famed library and lighthouse. Imperiled at every turn by court conspiracies and Roman treachery, the young Queen was forced to flee Alexandria and live in exile while a foreign army overran her city and her own family plotted her downfall. With nothing to lose, Cleopatra sought a partnership with the only man who could secure Egypt's safety: Julius Caesar, a wily politician and battle-hardened Roman general with a weakness for women. The result was a passionate love affair that scandalized Rome and thrust Cleopatra into a world of deadly intrigue played for the very highest stakes - a world she would continue to mesmerize and manipulate even after Caesar was gone. At the height of her power and fame, Cleopatra fell in love with Caesar's successor, Marc Antony. Brash, irresistible and fatally unreliable, he was the worst choice, but also the only choice. The love affair between Antony and Cleopatra remains one of the ancient world's greatest love affairs. When the tide finally turns against them, she plots a last, spectacular maneuver to save her children and her empire. This is the story of Cleopatra, a life as poignant as it was inspired. There is no woman in history that excites the curiosity or the imagination quite like her. 'This is the riveting story of Egypt’s last and greatest queen, a look at Cleopatra, the great woman behind the legend. In this new and revised edition - the director's cut - takes the reader inside the walls of Alexandria's great palaces, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman who thrived and triumphed in a world ruled by men. 'Falconer paints an enthralling fictional portrait of the one of the most powerful and beguiling women of all ages.' - Margaret Flanagan, American Library Association " ... historical fiction blazing with intrigue, romance and dramatic action' - Booklist 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
