***GIVEAWAY*** and Review of Helen Davis' Cleopatra Unconquered

Cleopatra UnconqueredCleopatra Unconquered by Helen R. Davis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Author, Helen Davis, clearly did her homework as Cleopatra Unconquered gives a realistic account of what could have been in ancient Egypt. Davis’s writing is extremely detailed and I was intrigued by the premise of her story. I wish it would have flowed more like a novel instead of an historical accounting, but I did enjoy learning about the times.

Cleopatra Unconquered by Helen R. Davis

Publication Date: December 2, 2015
Savant Books & Publications LLC
eBook & Paperback; 328 Pages
Genre: Alternative Historical Fiction
The first book of three in a richly imagined ancient world where the course of history is altered by one battle. In this world, Antony and Cleopatra triumph at the Battle of Actium, and Cleopatra emerges as a queen, stateswoman, and politician. Those around her come to life as the reader returns to those days to live them with her. "The first in a series, Cleopatra Unconquered by Helen R. Davis is a treat for those fascinated by Egypt and the lost glories of antiquity. The author weaves the fruits of her careful research into a fascinating combination of both the historical fiction and fantasy genres. It gives readers a look into history as it was, as well as into what might have been." - Elena Marie Vidal, author of The Paradise Tree
