    1. DNF. I read half, and though the story was ok, I realized I could stop reading it at any time and it wouldn't bother me. Then my Magic series by Iiona Andrews came in. I read one sentence and decided to ditch this book. At least for now. It was too political without any engagement in the story. The characters were likeable, but there was never any connection to them, and very little developement. My not so professional opinion? Eh.

    2. This fun,easy to read romance involves Roxanne,widow of Alexander the Great,a warrior,Bactrian prince and Ptolemy I of Egypt cast as the villain.The prince,Kayan,receives word from Ptolemy that Roxanne along with her son have been murdered.But Ptolemy is the last person to be trusted with a dead body and Roxanne is soon discovered alive and in his cold hearted,scheming possession.She has no memory of her past and her future is uncertain until one night she comes face to face with someone who can [...]

    3. This book is dark, amusing, funny, and serious. It can be a tad too descriptive at times though. Other than that, it's an amazing book I would recommend to die hard romantics that like a little twist to the stories.

    4. Clearly meant as a sequel to The Conqueror, which I have not read, but that wasn't too disturbing. It's been a very long time since I've read anything set at the time of Ptolomy, Alexander the Great etc. Not the book of the summer, but an interesting read nonetheless.
