Maria Dahvana Headley - Queen of Kings


If you were enthralled by Stacy Schiff's bestseller Cleopatra and also enjoy the fiction of Neil Gaman, Diana Gabaldon, Philippa Gregory and Patricia Briggs, don't miss this event with author MARIA DAHVANA HEADLEY when she speaks and signs her new novel, Queen of Kings,




Passion and seduction, witches and warriors, and history and mythology combine to bring the timeless story of Cleopatra to life like never before in this stunningly original debut. The year is 30 BC. A messenger delivers word to Queen Cleopatra that her beloved husband, Antony, has died at his own hand. Desperate to save her kingdom and resurrect her husband, Cleopatra summons the most fearsome warrior goddess, Sekhmet, and strikes a mortal bargain. Blending history, fantasy, romance, and the supernatural, Queen of Kings is a masterful feat of the imagination that fans of Diana Gabaldon, Patricia Briggs, Philippa Gregory, and Neil Gaiman won't want to miss.

Queen of Kings is Maria Headley’s first novel. A MacDowell Colony Fellow, Maria’s writing has appeared in The New York Times, Elle, The Washington Post, and others. She is the author of the memoir The Year of Yes (2007), which has been translated into nine languages and was optioned for film by Paramount.
