Haiku Review: Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray

Haiku Review: Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray

We briefly enjoyed regular haiku reviews and then our haiku-ist retired.   Over Christmas, I found this in my inbox.   How fun, right?   Bring back the haiku review.

Lovely cover art
Plus Cleopatra’s daughter
Equals auto-buy

Lily of the Nile by Stephanie DrayYou know your Romans.
Wikipedia research?
Not here. The real deal.

Young orphan Selene
The Isis cult sees her as their
savior, last chance

Goddess speaks through her
But is Selene brave enough
to defy Caesar?

Subplot with brother
Kinda reminds me
Flowers… Attic…Ick.

Lucky for readers
Does not go VC Andrews
Grateful for sidestep

There’s hints of romance
But the plot is all about
Selene’s survival

Really enjoyed this
Ending is a cliffhanger
Sets up for sequel

Would I recommend?
As Mama Grizzly would say
You betcha I do!

My grade: B
