Product description

Product Description

After winning the famous Alexandria horse race, Zenobia, a young Syrian warrior and an aspiring scholar, assumes her life will return to normal. Wrong!
A tumultuous romance develops with her instructor, widely considered the most brilliant academic on earth. Unknown to her, an enemy plans to kidnap Zenobia for his harem. The hired mercenaries never suspect their intended victim is a deadly warrior. The attack is thwarted, but the Syrians are alerted to a slave trade in young girls.
Meanwhile, a Nubian princess has been captured by the slavers. She struggles to survive in the dangerous situation while she seeks a way to escape. Can she succeed?
When a second kidnap attempt is made on Zenobia, the last attacker escapes. She has to run him down to save her family. Thus begins an epic chase on horseback across the desert in the dead of night. It culminates in a shocking revelation that threatens her very future.
Circumstances now force Zenobia into roles for which she is untrained. As she meets the challenges, she begins to unleash her strategic genius, which will one day raise her to the pinnacle of her world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great historical series! 8 April 2016
By Joyce DiPastena - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the second book in Russ Wallace's Zenobia series, Zenobia – Challenging a Legend. This book picks up right where Zenobia – Birth of a Legend left off. In Challenging the Legend, we get to watch Zenobia as she develops into a brave, intelligent, cunning young woman. Her overriding motivation as she grows is to establish justice and defeat injustice in the world. No easy task in the time of the corrupt Roman empire. The story was fast paced and kept me reading to see what would happen next. Through Zenobia's experiences in this volume, the reader begins to see what a formidable foe she will one day be to Rome. I, for one, can't wait to read more of her story in volume three.

This is the second book in a series, but it is not necessary to have read the first one to understand and enjoy Part 2.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great story 29 November 2015
By diana silva - Published on
As luck would have it, I happen to receive two books in the same month about Zenobia. "Zenobia- Challenging a Lengend" was an excellent introductory read. Wallace gave many interesting details about Zenobia. This was my first time hearing about this historical figure. It was a fantastic introduction and even though I did not read the first book in the series it did not impede my enjoyment of this story. Having read about Hatsheput last year, Zenobia was another great woman to learn about.

I loved Zenobia's strength and determination, her vulnerability and humanity made her more real to me. The book is lengthy but the pacing made it fly by and the tension filled scenes were very entertaining. Last but not least, the romance was a wonderful addition. I'm a sucker for romance and Zenobia was a passionate individual. I already placed the first book on my to-read list and really enjoyed this story.
