One winner will win a copy The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran in paperback along with an ancient Roman coin with a certicficate of authenticity.
A palace fire has killed the 18th dynasty's royal family - all but Nefertari, niece of the reviled former queen Nefertiti. A relic of a previous reign, Nefertari is pushed aside. But all of this changes when she is taken under the wing of pharaoh's aunt, where she is educated in a manner befitting a future queen.
And another winner will receive a copy of Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran.
Michelle Moran returns with another riveting and untold historical tale set against the backdrop of Egypt's demise. Following Cleopatra and Marc Antony's deaths, their three children - twins named Alexander and Selene plus a younger son named Ptolemy - are exiled from Egypt and sent to Rome in chains to be raised in one of the most fascinating (and dangerous) courts of all time. Cleopatra's Daughter is the remarkable true story of what happens to these three surviving children as seen through the eyes of Selene. Their adaptation to Roman culture, their treatment as both a curiosity and a threat, and Selene's perilous journey to adulthood, are all chronicled in the elegant detail and gripping pace for which Michelle Moran is celebrated.
