Book Trailer: Queen of Kings by Maria Dahvana Headley

Ready for goosebumps! This is the book trailer for the upcoming release of Queen of Kings: The Immortal Story of Cleopatra by Maria Dahvana Headley. It's the first book in a trilogy due for release on May 12, 2011. The soundtrack is a winner with the music and whispers. It had it's desired creepy affect on me. The bleeding eye at the end was a tiny bit cheesy. But I still really liked this trailer. The book cover is also a winner. Nicely done. What do you think?

Summary:
Passion and seduction, witches and warriors, and history and mythology combine to bring the timeless story of Cleopatra to life like never before in this stunningly original and spellbinding debut.

The year is 30 BC. A messenger delivers word to Queen Cleopatra that her beloved husband, Antony, has died at his own hand. Desperate to save her kingdom and resurrect her husband, Cleopatra summons the most fearsome warrior goddess, Sekhmet, and against the warnings of her scholars she strikes a mortal bargain. But not even the wisest scholars could have predicted what would follow...

In exchange for Antony's soul, Cleopatra is transformed into a vampiric creature of mythical proportions, an immortal shapeshifter with superhuman strength and an insatiable hunger for human blood-a being at once ferocious and seductive. And she is bent on vengeance against those who have wronged her family and her kingdom. Clashing against witches and monsters, gods and warriors, Cleopatra journeys from the tombs of Egypt to the great amphitheaters of Rome to the ancient underworld-where she will meet her love once again, and where the battle between man and beast will determine the fate of the world.

Blending history, fantasy, romance, and the supernatural, Queen of Kings is a masterful feat of the imagination that fans of Diana Gabaldon, Patricia Briggs, Philippa Gregory, and Neil Gaiman won't want to miss.

This looks like an amazing book! Although I have to admit I am really on the fence about book trailers. Sometimes I love them, and other times I could really do without them. I do like this one, I think it was done really well.

I'm up on the fence over trailers too. But I think the reason for that is most of them are really poorly done and the cheese factor is usually off the charts.
