OH. MY. GOD.
If you like ancient history and mythology revolving around Egypt, Rome and Greece, this is definitely the book for you. A brilliant supernatural take on Cleopatra’s “death” by a snakebite – because what does a snake’s fang look like but not a pair of vampire teeth?
Alright, she’s not bit by a vampire, but… yeah, you’ll find out if you read this, and I highly recommend that you do! The characters are brilliantly written and you don’t really know if you cheer for this or that side because they both seem equally good. And as stated in reading statuses about this book I did start to ship Emperor Augustus (Octavian) and Marcus Agrippa somewhere midway, which I doubt was the intention of the writer but it gave me a “romance” on that side of the fighting line as well.
Anyway, as stated in the beginning; if you like ancient history and mythology revolving around Egypt, Rome and Greece, plus some supernatural/vampire-like events, this book is a MUST READ!
