Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
The Worried Man - Lisa M. Lilly

I would call this a solid debut. I think the author gets a bit repetitive and tries to over explain things a bit much. Other than that, the book kept my interest throughout.

Reading progress update: I've read 45%.
The Worried Man - Lisa M. Lilly

Trying to finish this, but it's hard. I am only able to read it via my Kindle app on my cell and it's slow going.

 

Interesting still, but getting a bit repetitive. We have Quille still trying to investigate what happened to her boyfriend Marco. I am just finding myself a bit bored here and there.

Provided this book by the author for an honest review. At 27 percent the book is holding my interest. Not going to lie though, don't get why Quille (otherwise known as QC) was even in love with Marco. There was no there there for me. Once you find out about his past (recovering alcoholic who left his ex in debt and ruining his medical career) I don't see what the attraction was. Quille is now looking into whether Marco could have committed suicide or is something else going on.

"My knees were suddenly unsteady, and my stomach felt as if it were going to turn inside out... I tried to make my paralyzed lungs take in another breath before I died. Dazed, appalled..." (Roberts 7).
Twisted Summer - Willo Davis Roberts

I'd say that's a pretty realistic reaction to finding out someone you knew was murdered.

Cleopatra Unconquered
Cleopatra Unconquered - Helen R. Davis

Cleopatra VII was raised in the tumultuous Egyptian political climate.  From her infancy she was prepared by her father to one day rule Egypt beside her brother.  As a daughter of Isis, Cleopatra prayed to the goddess for support and guidance.  Little did Cleopatra know of the road ahead with death, deception, love, loss and the eventual happiness that Isis had in store for her when Cleopatra showed her worth. 

Cleopatra Unconquered is another wonderful story of 'what if," an alternative history to Cleopatra VII life and reign if she and Marc Antony were not defeated by Octavian in the Battle of Actium.  As the first of a three part series however, most of the book is deeply rooted in Cleopatra's history and not turning the tides until the end.  I enjoyed learning about how Cleopatra might have grown up and the trials she had to endure, especially within her own family.  I was very interested in her time away from Egypt and how she followed her father into his Exile in Rome; this seemed to have a great impact on her later decisions.  A wonderful layer that was added to the story was the point of view from the Vault of Nut where Isis, Athena and Cleopatra's mother, father and others in her life who had passed could look down on her, affect her decisions and move ahead through time.  This perspective allowed another layer of depth to Cleopatra's winding path through life and the choices she made.  Cleopatra's story intensifies as she heads into battle and becomes a commander and financier and I was enveloped in her battle.  I am so glad that Cleopatra's story no longer has to end so soon and can't wait to see where it leads next. 

This book was received for free in return for an honest review.
