Cleopatra Ascending

From Goodreads:
Sweet Sixteen = You’re a Queen

Despite living with a shaman, a witch, and a muse for sisters, Rhea Spencer feels like a normal teenager-even if she is the reincarnation of Cleopatra. But all that changes on Rhea’s sixteenth birthday, when her visions of the Egyptian queen start unraveling a very different version of history, and Declan, a hot representative of the secret Order of Antony, shows up on the doorstep to keep her from being kidnapped. Together, Rhea and Declan travel to Egypt to stop the Octavians, a dark cabal trying to tap into Rhea’s growing powers. The cabal seeks to access the magic deep below the desert sands, a potentially devastating force that only Rhea can protect.


I don’t even remember how I came across Cleopatra Ascending, but I know how pumped I was to find another YA book inspired by Egyptian culture! I actually had no idea this is book 2 in a series, so I’m almost happy Cleopatra Ascending comes out in January so I have time to read the first book, Shadow’s Edge :)
