I have to say that this is one of those rare cases where the sequel was better than the original. The original was lacking in a lot of points, but I have to give credit to the author who was very open to suggestions, corrections, and ideas from her fans.
It seems the author really took these two heart and Incorporated them into the second book under the shadow of the Moon.
The creation of the character Arsinoe was brought to fruition in the second book and her purpose in showing an example of his I have to say that this is one of those rare cases where the sequel was better than the original. The creation of the character Arsinoe was brought to fruition in the second book and her purpose in showing an example of historic tales of the Celtic region as well as how the Celtic dealt with the influx of foreign population, did become an interesting storyline. Problem areas from the previous book such as dialogue and continuity within the story we're highly improved upon, we found in this book continual dialogue between multiple characters that showed personality and character development which was lacking often in the previous book.
The narration and point of view also stayed steady- even though the characters providing the narration switched it was done in a smooth way with a little to no confusion. This book was a good conclusion to the generational story of Cleopatra and where her heirs went as well as where the Roman Empire was going in some forms; I would definitely recommend this book and say that the first book adds important information to it but this could probabily be read comfortably as a stand-alone book. Again I think it really says a lot about the author that she took in the opinions and critique of the reviewers and fans to come together and create a wonderful sequel that's fixed and solved a lot of problems present in the first book so that she was able to resolve many of the previous problem set up in the storyline and we could have resolutions and Selene's life and that of her family.
