    "I love this era of history, and a friend recommended this series to me so I picked it up. Obviously very fictionalized, but I really enjoyed the author's interpretation of Cleopatra's life. Will be reading the rest of the series."

    "I read this book with my daughter and she really enjoyed it as she is a fan of this series. It was very well written, and came from an interesting perspective. My only issue is that it's hard to tell how historically accurate it is, although it seems pretty passable, and the reader is reminded that it is a fictional account throughout."

    "I read through about the first half of "Elisabeth of Austria: The Princess Bride, Austria - Hungary, 1853" and I wasn't very impressed. I thought it got off to a very slow start and the story never really got moving."

    "I could not get enough of The Royal Diaries when I was in middle school - something about the luxurious trappings of royalty combined with the inner workings, thoughts, and feelings of young girls like me really spoke to me at the time. This is a great example in the series."
