Haggard tells the story of Cleopatra from the viewpoint of an Ancient Egyptian priest who is given the responsibility of overthrowing the supposed impostor Cleopatra. Haggard, who often employed hints of adventure and exoticism, portrayed Cleopatra as witty and devious, and she has an overwhelming presence that all can feel. Cleopatra, like the other characters, is both good and evil at the same time; forcing readers to both empathize and despise her. Thought provoking and beautifully illustrated, this classic tale captures the imagination of readers of all ages and inspires a love of literature and reading. A must-have classic for your digital library!

An ancient scroll is discovered wherein in set forth the account of the life of Harmachis. Born of an ancient and royal Egyptian bloodline, he was groomed to become a Pharoah--but to do so the current ruler, Cleopatra, would need to be gotten rid of. Harmachis goes through a lot of training as an Egyptian priest then his supporters put him into a position to take care of Cleopatra. But what they didn't figure on was the power of a woman's charms. This old-fashioned yarn is full of a lot of adventure and depictions of grandeur. I enjoyed listening to it though I would get lost in the midst of a pompous diatribe every once in a while. Not very historically accurate, I am sure, but fun to read or listen to nonetheless.more
