My rating: 2 of 5 stars :star :star

A copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

This was good. Not spectacular, but I liked the idea. Cleopatra, at 16 years old is flung from Egypt into the future. She's thrust into Yasiro Academy and seems very in-agitated by the thrust from time and space in a different world where she's supposed to be a hero/ prophetic godsend. That was probably what bothered me the most. It also bothered me that she is supposed to be 16; yet she is drawn to look like 12 or 13...

This is also one of those graphic novels that has very little words/story and is predominantly graphics. I admit I would've liked a little more story and dialogue. That being said - if the sequel is made available I'd request to read it.

I'd recommend this for younger readers. There is violence, but very toned down
