I was intrigued by the idea of this book mainly because there is an abundance of material on the famous Cleopatra, but you don't see much in the way of stories that deal with her sisters, Arsinoe and Berenice. Unfortunately, this one was a bit of a letdown for me. Too much extraneous melodrama used as fluff, and I just found it to be uninteresting. It wasn't riveting or engaging enough for me to really care about any of the characters at all.
Apparently this is the first of a series, but I don't think I will be reading the next one.
