After reading Stephanie Dray’s last novel “Lily of the Nile” I was anxious to read her newest “Song of the Nile”. I have to admit that I haven’t finished the book yet, but it sucked me in right away. The story picks up with the same characters where the last book left off. In fact I figured she would fast-forward a bit, but I feel like I haven’t missed a thing with Cleopatra Selene in this book.
Song of the Nile by Stephanie Dray is about the famed Cleopatra’s daughter, Selene. Dray with her wondrous imagination creates a story for Selene that the history books leave out. It’s easy to imagine that this is what really happened, because this book makes it so real. There is little known about Selene, so Dray fills the gaps. She uses facts about history, stories told, and a great deal of creativity. Where the “Lily of the Nile” book picks up when Cleopatra meets her demise and her children are forced move on without her, this story continues that. At the end of the last book Cleopatra Selene is about to be wed. In Song of the Nile we see Selene’s wedding and the happenings in her life from there.
I really enjoyed this new book. I think Stephanie Dray has something going here. I look at this era in time in a whole new light now. Even with a fictional book there are so many elements that are true to the times. I recommend that you go learn more about Stephanie and her books at http://www.stephaniedray.com.
