Cleopatra’s Daughter │ Michelle Moran


At the dawn of the Roman Empire, when tyranny ruled, a daughter of Egypt and a son of Rome found each other…

Selene’s legendary parents are gone. Her country taken, she has been brought to the city of Rome in chains, with only her twin brother, Alexander, to remind her of home and all she once had.

Living under the watchful eyes of the ruling family, Selene and her brother must quickly learn how to be Roman – and how to be useful to Caesar. She puts her artistry to work, in the hope of staying alive and being allowed to return to Egypt. Before long, however, she is distracted by the young and handsome heir to the empire…

When the elusive ‘Red Eagle’ starts calling for the end of slavery, Selene and Alexander are in grave danger. Will this mysterious figure bring their liberation, or their demise?


Another great book by an author who is becoming one of my favorites. This book pulled me in, and then it takes the reader on an intense roller coaster of emotion. Not going to lie, I cried, a few times…

The only problem I had with this book wasn’t the book’s fault. I don’t know a lot about Rome, and I seemed to have a harder time following and keeping track of what characters were who. But like I said, that is more my short comings than the books.
