Description
With this second book of his Ptolemies Quartet, Duncan Sprott continues his epic reconstruction of the Greek pharaohs in Egypt, from Alexander the Great to the fall of Cleopatra. The glory of the family is here at its height, but now begins the bizarre slide towards disaster. Pleasure-loving Ptolemy II marries his reptilian sister ArsinoŽ Beta, who promises to win wars for him. Worthy Ptolemy III avenges the murder of his sister by conquering the Syrian empire, and then himself marries a murderess.

"A marvelously rich and compelling vision of Egypt under the Ptolemies, a world of gods, murder, and incest. It takes guts to have your novel narrated by the goddess of writing, but Duncan Sprott pulls it off superbly."óEvening Standard (London)
