Cleopatra Ascending (Shadow's Edge #2) by Maureen Lipinski #BookReview

 
Sweet Sixteen = You're a Queen

Despite living with a shaman, a witch, and a muse for sisters, Rhea Spencer feels like a normal teenager-even if she is the reincarnation of Cleopatra. But all that changes on Rhea's sixteenth birthday, when her visions of the Egyptian queen start unraveling a very different version of history, and Declan, a hot representative of the secret Order of Antony, shows up on the doorstep to keep her from being kidnapped. Together, Rhea and Declan travel to Egypt to stop the Octavians, a dark cabal trying to tap into Rhea's growing powers. The cabal seeks to access the magic deep below the desert sands, a potentially devastating force that only Rhea can protect.

This book was very interesting from the beginning, seeing as how I was excited to read about ancient Egyptian mythology and history. I think that the characters were all developed very well and Rhea's family's dynamics were refreshing. But I did find the relationship between Rhea and Slade to be annoying at times. And the ending did feel a little too rushed for me. So overall I did have some issues with this book but it had a good concept.
