Cleopatra in Space: The Thief and the Sword: 05/22/17
Cleopatra in Space: The Thief and the Sword by Mike Maihack has Cleopatra trying to find the thief who has stolen the sword she recovered in the first book.
The future that Cleopatra is now living in reminds me of a peaceful version of the empire the Goa'uld conquered in Stargate and SG-1. Cleopatra herself is torn between enjoying her adventures in the future, and her desire to get home. In this regard she reminds me of a young version of Kiera Cameron from Continuum.
The Thief and the Sword is less focused on the initial mayhem of Cleopatra's adventure, and more on world building and characterization. We're introduced to a ton of characters and see more of the day to day life of a student.
The next book in the series is the Secret of the Time Tablets. Perhaps we'll learn more about how Cleopatra came to the future and if she has a chance to get home.
