Mike Maihack’s Cleopatra in Space series is an all-ages sci-fi series full of pizzazz, high energy, and lots of questions to answer. Starring the famous Egyptian pharaoh in her youth, at the start of the series Cleopatra found a tablet that threw her into the distant future, way past her time and way past ours. She’s gone to school, made some awesome friends, and even collected some cool weapons along the way. Now though, with the fate of the galaxy and her life on the line, will Cleopatra have what it takes to save the day and get back to her time period?
Cleo and her friends journey from Yasiro Academy to the city of Hykosis, where some of the most notorious thieves and assassins live. They’re in search of information about the time tablets that could determine Cleo’s fate — whether she wants them to or not. But the group is separated when Xaius Octavian’s fleet attacks their ship, and Cleo and Akila are on their own until they run into an old nemesis. Will Cleo find the information she needs and get out of Hykosis alive?
