Cole begins her tale where a lot of YA novels start. Macy is a typical teenager. She has a boyfriend who has broken her heart and she has a best friend who gives her love and support. That is pretty much where the similarities end. She soon finds out that nothing is as it seems and she has lived several lives before this one. The journey that she eventually takes is amazing.
Every Last Kiss is a combination of fantasy and historical YA fiction. When Macy gets sent back in time to the life that she spent with Cleopatra as Charmian, you can't help but get swept up in the story right along with her. The imagery and emotion that is created just draws you in.
The story weaves and turns and keeps you turning pages just to see exactly what the mystery is behind Macy/Charmian and the power that surrounds her. It took me a while to read this one, but it wasn't because it was a slow read. I'm not sure why because the descriptions and action were flowing. A lot happened in Every Last Kiss and by the end there were some secrets revealed, but still a lot to learn. It took me by surprise when I found myself in tears near the end. Macy/Charmian was a very easy character to sympathize with and you almost felt as if you even knew Cleopatra a little better by the time you were finished. It gave her a human side, even though it was fiction, that will never have me look at that point in history exactly the same way.
Needless to say, I will be checking out the rest of this series. Cole's writing style is very easy to read and get emotionally vested in. Well worth the read.
Macy Lockhart is above and beyond your average teenager. She just found out that her boyfriend of two years cheated on her and is contemplating exacting revenge on him. She wants nothing to do with him any more but he can't seem to get the message thru his head.

Macy's Aegis is Ahmose tells her that she must keep to the path set by The Fates yet what Annen has told her has a ring of truth as well. Macy as Charmain needs to help Cleopatra stay the course even though the knowledge she has is a terrible burden for anyone to bare yet she must. She must watch those she loves meet their fate without question~Cleopatra, Marc Antony, and her beloved Hasani. She wonders how she ever forgot about Egypt that she loved. Charmain helps Cleopatra make her plans against Octavian arrival in Egypt. Annen knows things that Charmain does not yet needs to know about The Order of Moirae. The Order of Moirae is ancient that holds many secrets from the Keeper and Aegis. What is Annen's secret knowledge? Can Charmain/Macy prevent what is to come? What secrets does The Order of Moirae hiding? What is the phoenix significance? What is Ahmose hiding? What about the bloodstone? Your answers await you in Every Last Kiss.
Every Last Kiss is apart of a series that I will definitely be checking out in the future. I look forward to exploring more about Macy and her daedal too. I'm sure that I'm in for a treat.
