Kleopatra lives in an age full of magic, when the Egyptian gods and demons still roamed the Earth and interacted with people. Her idyllic teenage life is devasted when her father, the Macedonian Pharaoh of Egypt, is driven from the throne, and she is forced to flee for her life. With only a single loyal sword-bearer, she escapes from an Alexandria in the throes of a bloody revolt and undertakes a perilous journey through a kingdom cracking apart at the seams.
As Kleopatra dodges assassins and demonic attack, her beloved Egypt is on the brink of collapse. Egypt awaits the rise of one who can reverse its foretold destruction and restore order, and the Egyptian gods have their hopeful eyes on young Kleopatra.
Bringing to life the actual historic events, people and places of ancient Egypt, J. Dharma Windham’s Reluctant Goddess, Book 1 of The Kleopatra Chronicles, explodes with action, mystery, and intrigue.
