Cleopatra in Space: Queen of the Nile: 12/10/20

Queen of the Nile

Cleopatra in Space: Queen of the Nile by Mike Maihack is the sixth and final book in the Cleopatra in Space series. Cleopatra and the Pharaoh have to face up to their parts in a millennia old prophesy. One of them will have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the kingdom and the universe.

The final volume is mostly hiding, planning, and then fighting as Xaius Octavian finally finds them. The battle and the stakes while confined primarily to one planet, reminds me of Descender, Volume 6: The Machine War by Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen (2018).

For me the best part of this conclusion was how the time travel threads were tied up. There was no reset switch to undo all her adventures, but Cleopatra does find a way to go back in time and eventually be the queen history remembers her as while still having the option of adventures in space and the future.

If you subscribe to Peacock, there's also an animated series. I don't personally. If you've seen the show, let me know what you think.

Five stars
