“The queen lives again. You, Rhea, are the key to unlocking the magical artifacts in Cleopatra’s tomb.” Despite having a shaman, a witch, and a muse for sisters, Rhea Spencer feels like a normal teenager—even if she is the reincarnation of Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen. But everything changes on her sixteenth birthday, when visions of a life she lived more than two thousand years ago become real and the queen’s secret world unfolds around her. Declan—a mysterious figure from the Order of Antony—appears at her doorstep to warn Rhea that she is in terrible danger. A sinister cabal known as the Octavians will do anything to obtain her growing powers. Rhea must travel to Egypt, the exotic land where an ancient war began, to stop the Octavians from unleashing a deadly force that could destroy the world.
