Read an Excerpt


Chapter Xv. Of The Feast Of Cleopatra; Of The Melting Of The Pearl; Of The Saying Of Harmachis; And Of Cleopatra's vow Of Love. On the third night the feast was once more prepared in the hall of the great house that had been set aside to the use of Cleopatra, and on this night its splendour was greater even than on the nights before. For the twelve couches that were set about the table were embossed with gold and those of Cleopatra and Antony were of gold set with jewels. The dishes also were all of gold set with jewels, the walls were hung with purple cloths sewn with gold, and on the floor, covered with a net of gold, fresh roses were strewn ankle- deep, that as the slaves trod them sent up their perfume. Once again I was bidden to stand, with Charmion and Iras and Merira, behind the couch of Cleopatra, and, like a slave, from timeto time call out the hours as they flew. And there being no help, I went cold at heart; but this I swore—it should be for the last time, since I could not bear that shame. For though I would not yet believe what Charmion told me—that Cleopatra was about to become the Love of Antony —yet I could no more endure this ignominy and torture. For from Cleopatra now I had no words save such as a Queen speaks to her slave, and methinks it gave her dark heart pleasure to torment me.

And ever Antony sat, his eyes fixed upon the face of Cleopatra, who from time to time let her deep glance lose itself in his, and then for a little while their talk died away. For he toldher tales of war and of deeds that he had done—ay, and love-jests such as are not meet for the ears of wom...

    too many typos

    The ebook is not enjoyable - there are so many "typos" (for lack of a better word) it's ridiculous. It's a good story-but not good on this format.

    Maria's Bio

    Maria. Just Maria
    Black curly hair, green eyes, pale skin, 6'1" tall, thin, somewhat busty.
    Wears a green ankle length dress with 3/4 sleeves and a brown braided leather headband.
    She is a child of two demigods, Amelia and George Thorne and her grandmother is Maya, Roman goddess of fertility and the harvests.
    She has no interest in romance.
    She has a complicated persona, so just meet her.
    Her weapons are twin daggers, both thin highland knives called dirks, perfect for picking locks. Their handles are encrusted with emeralds, and she keeps them tucked in her hair like hairpins. Ask anything else.
