"Lily of the Nile" Giveaway

Tis the season ...
For another TNBBC giveaway!

Stephanie Dray appeared with a guest post here on the blog last week to promote her new novel Lily of the Nile. The novel, which will be released in January 2011, is a story about the daughter of Cleopatra:

"Heiress of one empire and prisoner of another, it is up to the daughter of Cleopatra to save her brothers and reclaim what is rightfully hers...

To Isis worshippers, Princess Selene and her twin brother Helios embody the divine celestial pair who will bring about a Golden Age. But when Selene's parents are vanquished by Rome, her auspicious birth becomes a curse. Trapped in an empire that reviles her heritage and suspects her faith, the young messianic princess struggles for survival in a Roman court of intrigue. She can't hide the hieroglyphics that carve themselves into her hands, nor can she stop the emperor from using her powers for his own ends. But faced with a new and ruthless Caesar who is obsessed with having a Cleopatra of his very own, Selene is determined to resurrect her mother's dreams. Can she succeed where her mother failed? And what will it cost her in a political game where the only rule is win-or die?"

  2. This is a great giveaway! This book is definitely on my to-read list for next year. I reads tons of historical fiction and really wanted to be an Egyptologist as a kid, so I especially love books like this that are set in Egypt.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway opportunity!

  3. I have never read a fiction book about this time of history...I really need to fix that and this sounds like the way to do it!

  4. I'd love to read this book because I'm pretty much obsessed with Cleopatra. :) Even though this is fiction, it's still somewhat relevant - and it looks like it might be a good read.

    Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  7. Hi Lori!

    I can't thank you enough for your blog, your awesome book club and the giveaways! I just recently finished my degree in English and I now have the freedom to read what I would like and as much as I would like. You've give me the opportunity to fully indulge in my hobby again.

    In saying that, I have a lot of debt to pay off so free giveaway books and swaps are the best way for me to get a hold of new literature. I adore historical fiction and I've always had a soft spot for Egypt since I was a child. So, throw me in the draw and I'll cross my fingers!


  8. And the winner, chosen randomly... is....


    Congrats Grig, please check your email and forward me your shipping address as soon as possible.

    Thanks to everyone for their interest and support!
