BOOK I: CLEOPATRA’S DAUGHTER
As the invading army of Octavian, adopted son of Caesar, looms on the Egyptian horizon and her ally Mark Antony plunges toward insanity, the Pharaoh Cleopatra prepares for her final defeat. Sending her daughter Dedi far from the palace, she hopes the child will find sanctuary from the coming war.
Cleopatra’s gesture is likely futile. The old world is crumbling under the hobnailed sandals of Rome’s legions. Refuge seems beyond anyone’s reach.
Pursued by ruthless mercenaries and overwhelmed by her exile, Dedi struggles to keep her faith, life and sanity intact. Her only chance of survival rests with an enigmatic drifter whose hatred for the nobility runs deep. Before she can join her fate to his, Dedi must first let go all the fears and prejudices that mark her as Cleopatra’s daughter.
BOOK II: UPDATE
Due to workload, Book II has been placed on hiatus for now. Lucas intends to return to this project at some future point; when exactly is unknown at present.
