Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My pick this week is for a book called Cleopatra’s Moon by Vicky Alvear Shecter releasing August 1, 2011. It’s a Young Adult novel and it sounds fantastic! Since reading Michelle Moran’s novels on Ancient Egypt I’ve been fascinated by anything to do with Cleopatra. Here’s a description of Cleopatra’s Moon from Amazon.com:
“The Luxe” meets the ancient world in the extraordinary story of Cleopatra’s daughter.
Selene has grown up in a palace on the Nile with her parents, Cleopatra & Mark Antony–the most brilliant, powerful rulers on earth. But the jealous Roman Emperor Octavianus wants Egypt for himself, & when war finally comes, Selene faces the loss of all she’s ever loved. Forced to build a new life in Octavianus’s household in Rome, she finds herself torn between two young men and two possible destinies–until she reaches out to claim her own.
This stunning novel brings to life the personalities & passions of one of the greatest dramas in history, & offers a wonderful new heroine in Selene.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? So, what about you? Are you waiting for anything new and exciting this week? Share in the comments or leave me a link to your post. Have a great day everyone!
