characters ueen of Kings ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Maria Dahvana Headley ✓ 7 Download Ignoring the warnings of those around her she summons Sekhmet goddess of death and destruction and strikes a mortal bargain And not even the wisest of Egypt’s scholars could have predicted what would followFor in return for Antony’s soul Sekhmet demands something in return Cleopatra herself And so Egypt’s ueen is possessed She becomes an immortal shape shifting not uite human manifestation of a deity who seeks to destroy the world Fighting to preserve something of her humanity Cleopatra pursues Octavian back to Rome she de. to my keyboard lies the book I just finished ueen of Kings the debut novel from Maria Dahvana Headley author of The Year of Yes a memoir of the year she spent saying yes to anyone who asked her out Staring at me from the cover is a striking image of the ueen of Kings Cleopatra ruler of ancient EgyptAll of you have likely heard of Cleopatra and many of you will probably love her like I do Hers is a story that speaks to our imagination It is the story of a ueen and Pharaoh of Egypt loved by her people First the mistress of Roman Emperor Julius Caesar Cleopatra later married Mark Antony indirectly leading to a war with Rome When Octavian who later became Emperor Augustus invaded Egypt and Antony s armies deserted Cleopatra killed herself by inducing an asp to bite herA different CleopatraBut what if the story didn t end there What if there were to the asp bite than history has recorded After all rumors say the asp was never foundThese are the uestions explored in ueen of Kings And let me tell you the research behind the answers is absolutely extraordinary While this is a work of alternate history every part of the amazing story told in ueen of Kings fits within the known history of Cleopatra This time she wasn t bitten by an asp Instead in a desperate attempt to stop Egypt s inevitable defeat at the hands of the Roman Empire Cleopatra resorts to the ancient gods of Egypt But meddling with gods is not to be done lightly In an ultimate gamble Cleopatra sacrifices herself to Sekhmet and is transformed into a shape shifting vessel of a deity bent on the destruction of the world craving the blood of mortals And then there is Cleopatra s own desire for revenge against Rome and its emperorSubtly wrought charactersWhile the idea of a shape shifting and divine vampire might sound a bit blunt one of Headley s greatest talents is her subtlety ueen of Kings isn t your regular alternative vampire story Sure Cleopatra or rather the goddess in her has a particular craving for blood but this is hardly the defining feat of this new and immortal Cleopatra Instead the attention is on her struggles with the evil deity within her Cleopatra isn t a killer All she wanted was to be with Mark Antony All she still wants is to die and join him in the afterlife but she isn t herself any This conflict has been perfectly captured by the prose of Headley who at times seems like a poet of old writing a legendary tragedy the likes of which the world has never read beforeThe characters beyond our beloved Cleopatra have been carefully crafted too Headley s masterful subtlety shows in all her characters It shows in Augustus Emperor of Rome who in mortal terror of the undead ueen haunting him meddles with powers he knows nothing about It shows in Selene the daughter of Cleopatra and Antony who struggles with both feelings of betrayal and loyalty towards her parents and is left to fend for herself in a hostile world And then we have Agrippa loyal general of Augustus who believes his emperor and friend is going mad but feels obligated to stand by him nonethelessAlternating eyesAll of these characters and many are thoroughly explored in a variety of viewpoints In accordance with Headley s prose which seems at times very broad compared to that of other genre works these viewpoints are explored in a way I haven t encountered before Firstly a multitude of major and minor points of view each with their own small chapter enhances the perspective of the story giving it a very epic feel for a book in the paranormal and alternate history genres Secondly the viewpoints in the monumental scenes like battles tend to switch continuously On one page you might see a scene through three different sets of eyes For me this peculiar style took some getting used to but I definitely appreciated it in the end The multiple small chapters and varying viewpoints therein however reduced the pacing of ueen of Kings significantly especially in the middle part of the storyMythology folklore paganism legendI have already mentioned that ueen of Kings fits nicely into the paranormal and alternate history genres More than those however this is a mythological fantasy Headley has managed to weave many different cultures together in a book that contains elements from Greek legend Egyptian and Roman mythology Norse paganism and North African folklore Egyptian and Roman gods are seemingly effortlessly combined and lend the basis for some very interesting magic abilities In this ueen of Kings has left me with a bit of a philosophical feeling I found myself contemplating how different mythologies would have coexisted in the world at the time of CleopatraWhy should you read this bookAfter being thoroughly and unexpectedly hey don t blame me for staying for away from anything with vampires blown away by ueen of Kings I know one thing Headley is a master storyteller ueen of Kings is a legend and a tragedy It is a sexy read and a comprehensively researched book It is at once a paranormal love story an epic and a fast paced thriller I recommend ueen of Kings to anyone who enjoys reading fantasy and loves the many myths of our past A truly wonderful debut from an author worth keeping an eye on Good thing this is just the first in a trilogy too
