The third book in the CLEOPATRA IN SPACE series, Secret of the Time Tablets, will be out this month! It is, if you’ll allow me this momentary lapse of being humble, the best book in the series yet. A lot of stuff that the webcomic was leading up to ended up within it’s pages (reworked a bit of course) plus it wraps up the first story arc of the graphic novels. Now’s a really good time to read the whole series if–for whatever crazy reason–you’ve been holding off on doing so far.
Here’s the cover copy:
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?
Here’s a 16 page preview.
And here are some nice things people have said about the series thus far:
*”Maihack’s characters, both human and nonhuman, are diverse, expressive, and visually distinct.” — School Library Journal, starred review
“A delight, with its exciting layout of a futuristic Egypt complete with cool pyramid skyscrapers.” — Booklist
“Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero, and the supporting cast falls neatly into place as well.” — Publishers Weekly
“Cleo’s easygoing confidence makes her a likable… heroine, but the real star of the graphic novel is Maihack’s art. The cinematic paneling during action sequences skillfully conveys Cleo’s vivacity and flair.” — Kirkus Reviews
“Cleo is a fun, fearless heroine — I’d love to explore the galaxy with her!” — Raina Telgemeier, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Smile
