Queen of Kings - Maria Dahvana Headley

Queen of Kings - Maria Dahvana Headley

What if Cleopatra didn't die in 30 BC alongside her beloved Mark Antony? What if she ... more

couldn't die? What if she became immortal? "Queen
of Kings" is the first instalment in an epic,
epoch-spanning story of one woman's clash with the
Roman Empire and the gods of Egypt in a quest to
save everything she holds dear. As Octavian Caesar
(later Augustus) and his legions march into
Alexandria, Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, summons
Sekhmet, the goddess of Death and Destruction, in
a desperate attempt to resurrect her husband, who
has died by his own hand, and save her kingdom.
But this deity demands something in return:
Cleopatra's soul. Against her will, Egypt's queen
becomes a blood-craving, shape-shifting immortal:
a not-quite-human manifestation of a goddess who
seeks to destroy the world. Battling to preserve
something of her humanity, Cleopatra pursues
Octavian back to Rome - she desires revenge, she
yearns for her children - and she craves
blood...It is a dangerous journey she must make.
She will confront witches, mythic monsters, the
gods of ancient Greece and Rome, and her own,
warring nature. She will kill but she will also
find mercy. She will raise an extraordinary army
to fight her enemies, and she will see her beloved
Antony again. But to save him from the endless
torment of Hades, she must make a devastating
sacrifice. Brutally authentic historical fiction
meets the darkest of fantasy in Maria Dahvana
Headley's extraordinary debut novel about the most
famous woman in history: Cleopatra, Queen of
Kings.
