Mythological Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Bonnie at A Backwards Story. MM highlights all things myth related.
My Mythological Monday post is all about Egyptian Mythology! As I was stalking blogs, I came across this book mentioned on Candace's Book Blog. It earned a 4 star rating!
I love mythology, but it seems hard to find books that aren't based on the popular (and well known) Greek/Roman myths. So, when I find something based on Egyptian or Norse mythology, my interest is grabbed.

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?
