    I discovered this series long after its first book. As I mentioned several times before (and I will keep on mentioning, with the risk of becoming annoying), this is the beauty of a book blogger – discovering books and having the amazing opportunity to read and review them directly from the source, or helping promote them in any way we can. “Cleopatra VII: Egypt’s Last Pharaoh” contains some of the most important moments of Cleopatra’s life – the amazing, beautiful and intelligent Cleopatra. In ju I discovered this series long after its first book. As I mentioned several times before (and I will keep on mentioning, with the risk of becoming annoying), this is the beauty of a book blogger – discovering books and having the amazing opportunity to read and review them directly from the source, or helping promote them in any way we can. “Cleopatra VII: Egypt’s Last Pharaoh” contains some of the most important moments of Cleopatra’s life – the amazing, beautiful and intelligent Cleopatra. In just a little under 100 pages we have the opportunity to learn a little more of her life, of Egyptian and Roman history. Some of you guys may ask: why do I care? Why is she so important and why should she be of interest to me? Well the author captures in this short book how exceptional the Pharaoh was, how her beauty attracted many, but her heart had room for only one. We see how loved she was and how she returned this affection with intelligence. There are so many articles and books out there about her and about the many amazing women of our history and Laurel A. Rockefeller’s story is just one of the great ones. In the form of a narration, the author tells her life and speaks of her love and loveless marriage. I must admit I wanted to know so much more and I wanted more details. I am frustrated over the small amount of pages we have. But in my opinion, the author reached her purpose, that of making me – the reader – more curious and more eager to know more. I can only thank her for that and bow my head for the respect she is showing to one of the greatest minds history has seen. I do invite you to go through the series and discover the many other amazing personalities that have shaped our world.

I’m grateful of receiving a free copy from the publisher/author in exchange for an honest review of this book. – ‘Cleopatra VII : Egypt’s Last Pharaoh’ is the first book I’ve read written by Laurel A. Rockefeller and although it’s a very well known story for me I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. It may be a rather short version of this well-known female pharaoh’s life, but it was interesting and exciting to read as it gives you the real strong woman that Cleopatra was and not the romanticized version. For this I applaud the author and I would recommend everyone, huge history buff or not so much, to read this book. However, I must be honest and admit that I didn’t really know what to think about the prologue and epilogue. I understand the need to have a starting point to get to the real subject, but for me it didn’t connect / work somehow. Of course this is just my opinion and a small hiccup as the real story is a big YES for me! Afterwards you also get an intriguing time-line and a lot of suggested reading links as a bonus. For me this felt like I was Alice who went down the rabbit hole as I clicked on links and links and … full of more interesting articles on the main characters and the time period. I just loved it! I would somehow hope that the author would write more books about Ancient Egypt and the Roman Empire as it was just a really fascinating book and internet journey. So as already said, a wholeheartedly recommendation from me for this book in ‘The Legendary Woman of World History’ series! The Magic of Wor(l)ds

    5-Stars! Cleopatra VII: Egypt’s Last Pharaoh by Laurel A. Rockefeller is a great read for anyone interested in learning more about Cleopatra and her time in history. The cover is good and fits the fiction narrative beautifully. Also, it is not an easy thing to write a good blurb for a story like this, and I feel Laurel did a fantastic job making it interesting. I like the way Ms. Rockefeller opens her books with a little history first in the form of a conversation in a library, but I felt it was a 5-Stars! Cleopatra VII: Egypt’s Last Pharaoh by Laurel A. Rockefeller is a great read for anyone interested in learning more about Cleopatra and her time in history. The cover is good and fits the fiction narrative beautifully. Also, it is not an easy thing to write a good blurb for a story like this, and I feel Laurel did a fantastic job making it interesting. I like the way Ms. Rockefeller opens her books with a little history first in the form of a conversation in a library, but I felt it was a little heavy for me as I’m not familiar with this era. For history nerds and teachers, this book is just what you need in your life. The story starts strong with good writing that pulled me right into the book. I enjoy Laurel’s writing style. There are a few glitches with the formatting, but not so bad it pulls you out of the story. Overall, I learned something new and enjoyed reading this narrative fiction of this time in Cleopatra’s life. I trust this author’s research skills, and I loved how she told the history and made it interesting. Cleopatra has always been known for her powers of seduction, and that is addressed. The scenes are not graphic in any way, but maybe more for middle-grade students vs elementary kids. This story is beautifully done with attention to details and brings you right into her world with the noise, the smells, and the sights. Cleopatra VII: Egypt’s Last Pharaoh is a wonderful addition to any library.
