rrem is the most dangerous ruthless in her desire to rule the Harem and ultimately S leyman himself Endlessly manipulative and clever she carefully arranges the downfall of her rivals and endears

br Bestselling author Colin Falconer offers an irresistible glimpse into a world of intrigue sensuality and violence where an empire can be controlled not by the might of its king but by the women hidden behind the Harem walls, The most complete woman ever to have existed the most womanly woman and the most queenly queen a person to be wondered at whom dreamers find always at the end of their dreams br Theophile Gautier br br Arrestingly beautiful and fiercely intelligent Cleopatra VII of Egypt was barely more than a teenager when she inherited the richest empire in the world one that stretched from the scorching deserts of lower Egypt to the shining Mediterranean metropolis of Alexandria with its famed libraries storehouses and treasuries Imperiled at every turn by court conspiracies and Roman treachery the young queen was forced to flee Alexandria and live in exile while a foreign army overran her city and her own siblings plotted her downfall With nothing to lose Cleopatra brazenly sought a partnership with the only man who could secure Egypt s safety Julius Caesar a wily politician and battle hardened general with a weakness for women The result was a passionate love affair that scandalized Rome and thrust Cleopatra into the glittering but deadly world of imperial intrigue and warfare a world that she would mesmerize and manipulate even after Caesar was gone br br At the height of her power and fame Cleopatra fell in love with Caesar s prot g and successor Marc Antony a handsome general known as much for his drunken hedonism as for his victories in battle Brash irresistible and fatally unreliable Antony s once strong hold on the Roman Empire was slipping fast and with it slipped Cleopatra s fortunes When the tide had finally irrevocably turned against her the proud queen plotted a last spectacular maneuver that was to save her children her empire and her place in the pantheon of gods br br Colin Falconer s bold sensuous prose takes the reader inside the walls of Alexandria s great palaces and into Cleopatra s very heart creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman who thrived and triumphed in a world ruled by men This is the story of a legendary woman s most glorious time a story that blazes through thousands of years of history to capture the imagination of readers today br br br i From the Hardcover
