Reviewer: Tamara (Atlanta, GA) -
This book takes you on a love roller coaster. It starts with a vacation that turns into the best adventure ever noted. Olympia, Pia Bird, desperately wants a piece of rock that is believed to be chipped from the great Alexander the Great. Ironically, the peddler that introduced the beautiful stone to Pia Bird has sold it by the time she found her father, to a handsome young man with golden locks named Darius. The golden haired hunk gives Pia a piece of tbe stone and from there the book takes you on an emotional roller coaster into the life of Cleopatra, The Great Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, Darius and Olympia. This book is filled with on the edge writing. The author exhibits a strong story into tbe life of Cleopatra and how she loved. Cleopatra exudes strength, courage and wisdom. Through this power, Olympia learns what it is to love. I enjoyed the way the book takes you back and forth from current day to noted history. I enjoyed the innocence in both Olympia and Darius. This is a fabulous book if you love on the edge fiction.
