Cleo is back at Yasiro Academy, recovering from the tragic events that occurred on planet Hykosis. She feels responsible for the death of her friend Zaid, and trains nonstop. And when she learns that the Golden Lion — a star with immeasurable energy that could destroy them all if weaponized — has been located, she goes alone to the snowy, icy planet Cada'duun to find it. There, she faces off with a new enemy who has been instructed to destroy the Golden Lion... and her.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for the Cleopatra in Space series:

“Cleo is a fun, fearless heroine -- I'd love to explore the galaxy with her!” -- Raina Telgemeier, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Smile

*“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

A delight, with its exciting layout of a futuristic Egypt complete with cool pyramid skyscrapers.” -- Booklist

“Cleopatra smoothly slips into the role of confident, wisecracking, baddie-dispatching hero, and the supporting cast falls neatly into place as well.” -- Publishers Weekly
