Before Julius Caesar ...before Marc Antony ...she was Cleopatra, Princess of the Nile, growing up in a climate of danger where sisters can also be assassins, and her pet leopard stalks the garden at night to fend off intruders. Princess Cleopatra just cannot keep away from the marble tomb of Alexander the Great ...she hopes that one day people will call her 'Great'.
Even though i have not at all read this particular novel, i can say that i read the Royal Diaries version of it, (Which i bevieve to be the same story only with a different cover). I found the book mostly enjoyable, minus a few dull bits here and there. But over all a certain must read for all young people interested in ancient Egypt.
