HAND OF ISIS
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
Graham has done the near impossible -- her second book is better than her first, and her first was incredible! Black Ships explored ancient Greece and recounted the Aeneid; her latest takes the reader to ancient Egypt and tells the story of Cleopatra from the point of view of her sister Charmian. Graham is a skilled scholar and storyteller, and this is a keeper for anyone interested in Egyptian history and mythology.
Charmian devotes her entire life to the service of her half-sister and queen, Cleopatra. Intrigue, assassination attempts, the love of Julius Caesar -- nothing can keep them apart. But not even Charmian's visions and supplications to the goddess Isis can keep Cleopatra from her tragic, bitter fate. (ORBIT, Apr., 528 pp., $14.99)
