After the deaths of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, the new Caesar, Octavian, takes Cleopatra’s daughter, Princess Selene, away from Alexandria to live in Rome.


What happened after Cleopatra killed herself? Cleopatra had children, but very little is discussed about them? In Lily of the Nile, we are introduced to one such child Princess Selene. As a young woman imprisoned in a politically driven Rome, she has her mother’s intellect and magical powers. Regardless of her strengths, she must keep her guard up. There are those who want to harm her and others who just want to claim her. Now, could she reclaim her Egyptian royalty while living with the enemy?
