Condition: Good

A secondhand book that has been read but is in good condition. Very minimal damage to the cover, including minimal scuff marks and creasing, but no holes or tears. There is also a small coffee stain at the top of the back cover. The majority of pages are undamaged, with no creasing or tearing. No pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in margins. There is a small spattering of coffee stains on the first and last pages of the book. There is also a significant amount of discolouring bordering the pages throughout the book, none of which hinders the eligibility of the text. No missing pages. An aged and worn but solid copy.

Product Details:

"He left her alone in the inky darkness of the future, and even from the moment of his final breath she could hear the slithering of cold bodies and the baring of fangs ' Arrestingly beautiful and fiercely intelligent, Cleopatra VII of Egypt was barely more than a teenager when she inherited the richest empire in the world -- one that stretched from the scorching deserts of upper Egypt to the shining Mediterranean metropolis of Alexandria, with its famed libraries, storehouses and treasuries. Imperilled at every turn by court conspiracies and Roman treachery, Cleopatra brazenly sought a partnership with the only man who could secure Egypt's safety- Julius Caesar, a wily politician and battle-hardened general with a weakness for women. The result was a passionate love affair that scandalised Rome and thrust Cleopatra into the glittering but deadly world of imperial intrigue and warfare - a world that she mesmerised and manipulated even after Caesar was gone.

Colin Falconer's bold, sensuous prose takes the reader inside the walls of Alexandria's great palaces and into Cleopatra's very heart, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman who thrived and triumphed in a world run by men."
