Publisher's Summary

The only way to survive her dynasty is to rule it.

Abandoned by her beloved older sister, Cleopatra, and an indifferent father, Arsinoe, a young Egyptian princess must fight for survival in the bloodthirsty royal court after her half-sister Berenice seizes power.

But despite using her quick wits to win Berenice's favour, Arsinoe struggles to establish herself in an uncertain new world, one that carries her from the conspiratorial dangers of the palace to the streets of war-torn Alexandria.

Meanwhile, her other sister, the usurper Berenice, has her own demons to confront - her cruel, flagging mother, a pair of fickle husbands, and the ever-present threat that her father will return from exile - as she fights to hold the throne as the first queen of Egypt in a thousand years.

Perfect for historical fiction fans who loved discovering The Other Boleyn Girl, Cleopatra's Shadows reimagines Cleopatra's rise to power through the eyes of her forgotten younger sister, Arsinoe.
