A funny, action-packed graphic novel featuring a young Cleopatra -- yes, THAT Cleopatra -- who's transported to the future and learns it's up to her to save the galaxy!

When a young Cleopatra (yes, THAT Cleopatra) finds a mysterious tablet that zaps her to the far, REALLY far future, she learns of an ancient prophecy that says she is destined to save the galaxy from the tyrannical rule of the evil Xaius Octavian. She enrolls in Yasiro Academy, a high-tech school with classes like algebra, biology, and alien languages (which Cleo could do without), and combat training (which is more Cleo's style). With help from her teacher Khensu, Cleo learns what it takes to be a great leader, all while trying to figure out how she's going to get her homework done, make friends, and avoid detention!

So, I like history. And I really like ancient history. So to find a graphic novel series about Cleopatra was MINDBLOWING!. Let me first warn you, the book is not exactly accurate. This Cleopatra does NOT like school, and that gets her into a lot of trouble. I have read the first book of this series and needless to say, I plan to read them ALL! Cleopatra VII gets transported to an Egyptian-styled future through a mysterious glowing tablet. See. She should have been studying! Questions? What is the mysterious glowing tablet? Where did it come from? Cleopatra VII lands learns she is on Planet Mayet in the Ailuros System. She finds herself going back to school on this foreign planet in hopes to find her way back home. More questions? How can her new friends, Akila and Brian, help her find out how she got to Planet Mayet? Is the destiny of 15-year-old Cleo to battle and protect the Planet Mayet from Xaius Octavian and his Xerx army? I ope you read the first book in this series, too, so you can find out!

Everybody knows that Cleopatra is the ancient queen of Egypt...but why does the cover show her in THE FUTURE? Cleopatra's life is anything but exciting. Her teacher, Bakari, drills her in algebra. She attends boring parties. And today, she is about to take the throne as Queen of Egypt. 15-year-old Cleo discovers a prophecy while exploring an ancient tomb. Whisked away to the future, Cleo finds herself in the future, the Ailuros System. Cleo is enrolled in Yasiro Academy, and discovers she is destined to save the world from the evil Xaius Octavian and his army of Xerx. With the help of her new friends Akila and Brian and her teacher Khensu, Cleo learns what it takes to be a great leader, all while being a good student and role model.

Cleo is from ancient Egypt. Weird right? Look at the cover. Due to a strange prophecy, Cleo is accidently sent to the future. Cleo makes friends with her school roommate and along the way a few other friends.

It look like it is a good book

Epic book, the part where Professor Javel holds a tournament and Cleopatra beats Javel. Javel used 8 shots to stun 8 xerx (i have no idea what xerxs are) and Cleopatra only uses 1 shot.
