It's hard to know what's human when everyone disagrees on what that means. No one moreso than Tea, an artificial-psychology researcher who gets kidnapped along with the elusive Jenny, her favourite barkeep who's got a fantastic silhouette. Their captors: Labyrinth Corp, an underground organization "improving humanity, one clone at a time!"
She's supposed to marry her brother, but she refuses. She's hides behind her smarts and outward thirst for power. But Cleopatra VII Philopator has been in love with her childhood friend forever--and he knows her better than anyone. And when she becomes Pharaoh of Egypt at eighteen years old, Cleopatra would love nothing more than to be with that friend and have him rule by her side. But then she won't be able to protect him.
