Keeper of the Flame

ebook

Previously released as Guardian of the Flame.

In the Alexandrian Library, Roman soldiers scatter papyri over the floor like kindling, intent on destruction. Meanwhile, Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt, plots the seduction of the world's most powerful political leader.

Sophia rarely leaves the lighthouse, preferring her maps, charts, and astronomy tables. But when her former student, Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, reappears from exile, Sophia finds herself tangled in a web of political and romantic intrigue that threatens not only Cleopatra's legacy, but the future of Egypt itself.

Keeper of the Flame grants readers entry to the Alexandrian Library, the legendary lighthouse, and the palace rooms where Cleopatra and Caesar met for the first time. More than just a historical novel, it explores the complex and powerful role of women in the clash of two intellectually advanced, if violent, ancient societies.
