Cleopatra's space adventure in the REALLY far future continues!

When a mysterious thief steals the ancient sword Cleo recovered in Cleopatra in Space #1: Target Practice, Cleo is determined to get it back, but her teachers at Yasiro Academy forbid her from risking her life.

Stuck at school, Cleo is having a hard time adjusting to her newfound popularity and responsibility. And when she learns more about the prophecy that names her the savior of the galaxy and the time tablets that could decide her fate, she must go on a dangerous journey to find them before they can fall into the wrong hands.

*“Maihack’s characters, both human and nonhuman, are diverse, expressive, and visually distinct. —School Library Journal, starred review

“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
