Cleopatra, the young Egyptian queen, has powers that she herself does not completely understand. She is able to see and converse with Isis, the goddess of motherhood and fertility; and her dreams not only transport her into supernatural realms, but also seem to prophesy her own future as well as Egypt’s.
Osiris, Isis’ lover and husband, has been abducted by Anubis, the god of the Underworld—accomplishing the wicked kidnapping with the assistance of Osiris’ brother Set, who desires the beautiful Isis and wishes to make her his wife. The distraught Isis visits Cleopatra, and pleads with her to rescue her imprisoned husband Osiris. Cleopatra, who has witch-like powers, finds the entrance to the Underworld, travelling there to confront Anubis even though he has powers which greatly surpass her own.
While in the Underworld, Cleopatra discovers her true identity as well as the true extent of her magical powers. The final outcome of her mission is unexpected and satisfying, making this read an interesting and very enjoyable experience.
Cleopatra’s passion for the virile and sexy Mark Antony sizzles, and the richness of their true love for each other is reflected in the author’s detailed and stimulating descriptions of their sexual intimacy. In the end, their mutual love for each other helps to consummate a happy ending for the two lovers, Isis and Osiris, and all of Egypt. I highly recommend this novelette. Well-done Mr. Wolf!
