Meet the Author

Stephanie Dray is a bestselling, multi-published, award-winning author of historical fiction and fantasy set in the ancient world. SONG OF THE NILE, the second book of her series about Cleopatra’s Daughter was nominated for a RITA award and won the Golden Leaf. Her focus on Ptolemaic Egypt and Augustan Age Rome has given her a unique perspective on the consequences of Egypt's ancient clash with Rome, both in terms of the still-extant tensions between East and West as well as the worldwide decline of female-oriented religion. Before she wrote novels, Stephanie was a lawyer, a game designer, and a teacher. Now she uses the transformative power of magic realism to illuminate the stories of women in history and inspire the young women of today. She remains fascinated by all things Roman or Egyptian and has-to the consternation of her devoted husband-collected a house full of cats and ancient artifacts.

    Interesting Read

    The title is what first drew my attention to the book, suggesting an intrigue and exciting plot, The writing and action of the story, didn't match what the title promised, at least to me.The story has a slightly different twist as the Princess of Egypt does come into her own after her marriage to an older king and defending herself against the scheming prince. The story held my interest and was well written, but with many grammatical errors and incorrect homonym use, which distracted me from the story. The editing could have been better. Overall I enjoyed the book.

    Even though this tale is set the royal courts of ancient Egypt and Thrace, both full of political and personal intrigue, this a coming-of-age story, one in which an innocent teenager gets a heart-breaking lesson about survival.

    In this short work, the author does a great job in building sympathy for Arsinoe, an Egyptian princess who wants only familial love and does wish to heed her mother’s advice about clawing her way to the top in a court full of treachery. The author also effectively ratchets the tension with a love interest--a relationship that would be fatal to both involved if discovered--and her narrative keeps the pages turning until the end, when Arsinoe realizes the ultimate truth about what she must do.

    Anyone who would like to sample Stephanie Dray’s work should read this novelette. Be warned: You might just turn the page after the author’s note and swept into her first novel, “Lily of the Nile,” a tale about one of Arsinoe’s descendents, Cleopatra Selene.

    I Also Recommend:

    Really love this story, however brief!

    This is a really excellent novella, I only wish it was an entire book or even series! If you enjoy stories of ancient Egypt, then this is a story for you. Though it's rather short, it paints a wonderfully tragic picture of a princess who, despite her circumstances, is well on her way to becoming a force to be reckoned with. Well worth the read and besides, it's free so what do you have to lose?!
