Review from Bethany at More Than a Review


Zenobia: Birth of a Legend

Based on the real life historical figure, this book is the first in the chronicles of the early life of Zenobia. Saved from being killed as a baby for being female by her clever mother, Zenobia’s life is almost too fantastic to be true. She is determined to learn all she can and to train like the men to be as great as she can be. She is a strong girl with enough determination and bravery to match twenty people.

Richly detailed and shining with brilliant research, this is a treasure for anyone who loves strong women and history.

Zenobia: Challenging A Legend

Set immediately after the first book, Challenging A Legend continues to detail Zenobia’s journey to become the  strong-willed, charismatic woman history remembers her to be. She learns the benefit of being a legend, and the heartbreak of a first love. She takes on her enemies with the intelligence I’ve come to expect from her character.

She learns the wiles of being a woman and how to use it her benefit, which was fun to see because at first she thinks it ridiculous. We see Zenobia’s first bout with grief and heartache, and we see her rise above it all.

A must-read for anyone who enjoyed the first book.
