• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Song of the Nile (Cleopatra's Daughter, #2)
 
Summary:
 
Sorceress. Seductress. Schemer. Cleopatra's daughter is the one woman with the power to destroy an empire...

Having survived her perilous childhood as a royal captive of Rome, Selene pledged her loyalty to Augustus and swore she would become his very own Cleopatra. Now the young queen faces an uncertain destiny in a foreign land.

The magic of Isis flowing through her veins is what makes her indispensable to the emperor. Against a backdrop of imperial politics and religious persecution, Cleopatra's daughter beguiles her way to the very precipice of power. She has never forgotten her birthright, but will the price of her mother's throne be more than she's willing to pay?
Summary & Cover taken from Goodreads.com

My Teaser:
Pg. 5
 
Understand that the emperor wasn't an imposing man. His power was all in the snare of his ruthless winter grey eyes, which now darkened with suspicion, as if he'd caught me trying to slip past his praetorians with their crested helmets and crimson capes.
 
What do you think of the teaser this week?
