    1 thought on “Cleopatra's Secret: Keepers of the Light

    1. This is one of those books that had so much potential to be something wonderful and then stumbled in the execution. The story of Cleopatra and Antony told with supernatural elements, wherein the Egyptian gods really do imbue the pharaoh's line and the priests/priestesses with power and abilities? Awesome!Unfortunately, the story suffers from choppy writing. Many times, a conflict is just starting to pick up steam when there's a sudden time jump, jolting the reader out of the slow and natural bui [...]

    2. For some reason, i feel like the story is rushed. There should've beeb more details like perhaps about Mark Antony's past wives and other children, or maybe more about the House of Ptolemy. And why is Ptolemy Philadelphus not included here? I don't know, the entire story is fleeting. All the events seemed like it happened in a year instead of decades.

    3. Elizabeth Taylor = Cleopatra at least in my mind's eye. There are few known facts about the relationships of Cleopatra and Julius Caesar or Cleopatra and Marc Antony. Writers of fiction have been fascinated by Cleopatra through the centuries and some focused on her physical appearance (sexuality) and others looked at her political prowess. Ms. Storm combines the two but seems most interested in the secret, mystical and religious life of Cleopatra.I found myself caught-up in the religion of ancie [...]

    4. If Game of Thrones took place in ancient Egypt and featured the characters of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, it would be this book. I really enjoyed the magical fantasy elements. The gods and Egyptian magic came to life in true epic fashion and the storyline was a big departure from any depiction of the Cleopatra story I've ever seen before. If people are looking for a strictly historical depiction of Cleopatra they might be disappointed, but if you love magic and fantasy, this book is for you. Or, [...]

    5. DNF at 24% Interesting concept at first but then wasn't feeling it at all Spoilers. I feel like the author was banking on the fact that her authors knew about Marc and Cleo realtionship. That they already knew the history,read the play and probably watched the Elizabeth Taylor with Richard Burton version( and the Timothy Dilton with Billy Zane version) a million times like I have. If you didn't you probably felt that it was hardly no built up and it was pretty much lust. You had really no built [...]

    6. 2.5 stars. There were parts I liked and others that were weird plus the editing mistakes caused some bumps. It was difficult for me to get attached to the characters, don't know why. I liked the mystical angle of this story though. Perhaps if I had read this first, before Michelle Moran's 'Cleopatra's Daughter', and not compared the two, it would've been a better read.
