Historical Novel Society Review: "Zenobia - Challenging a Legend" by Russ Wallace
"The first book in the series, The Birth of a Legend climaxes with our young heroine triumphing at a world-famous horse race in Alexandria, and this next volume hits the ground running, plunging Zenobia into one adventure after another, all narrated by Wallace with enormous spirit and a very sharp ear for dialogue.
This second novel is fuller and more pleasingly complex than the first, bursting with engaging secondary characters and the believable deepening of Zenobia’s personality.
I very much look forward to further novels in this series."
Praise for book two, Zenobia - Challenging a Legend
"Zenobia is another of the historical warrior women who became a legend and a true inspiration to her people. Much has been written and theorized about her. I found this book/series to be a refreshing change from many of the other books as we are introduced to the person she may have been and we see what things may have shaped her and the world around her. There is a lot of action, emotion and adventure in this tale along with plenty of historical figures and events. The author has done a fine job of blending fact and fiction to create a lovely story that most any reader will find enjoyable. I highly recommend this series and am looking forward to the next installment." - Onebookshy.blogspot.com
