Overview

The Amazons of the steppes have conquered since a time before recorded history. The kingdom of the proud women warriors is threatened by a vast invading force of men in metal armor who attack out of the western mountains at the edge of the Amazon domain. Anaxilea, the youngest daughter of War Queen Lysippe, is taken hostage by the army of men and sold into slavery.

Anaxilea finds herself in a bizarre new world where women are beneath men, cows are valued more than horses, and everyone desires the worthless metal gold. A shepherd boy, from a tribe long ago subjugated by the Amazons, is her only guide to the new world, but his motives are suspicious and his loyalties are constantly changing.

After she is sold to the ancient Ludus Dacicus, a gladiator training school founded by the first Caesar, she must learn to fight within the arena to prove her worth or suffer a fate worse than death. Romance blossoms within the walls of the ludus, and Anaxilea finds herself within a love triangle, caught between a pure-hearted slave girl and a charming Olympic champion. The games at Neapolis will determine if she survives to claim her birthright as an Amazon Princess or fall to betrayal.

Bio for Rebecca (written by Alex)
Rebecca Anne Murphy, who was born Rebecca Anne Murphy, is a face piercing enthusiast with impeccable taste in men. At the small liberal arts college she attended in the mountains of southern Oregon, she excelled at such worthy endeavors as karaoke and skateboarding, which amply prepared her for her future as a novelist and professional goof off. She has also been known to dabble in other art forms that are inferior to cartooning like painting and sculpting. When writing with her infinitely talented boyfriend, her sections tend to be fraught with girly feelings and emotional conflicts.

Bio for Alex (written by Rebecca)
Alex made his name and managed to finagle a few favors out of fans by penning a long running comic strip about the life and times during college of him, his friends, and his beloved girlfriend Becky. When college ended, he made the stumblingly awkward transition to more mainstream writing endeavors like zombie books and fortune cookies. Eventually he hopes to get his church of Cthulhu off the ground, literally, as it is an airship constructed from a single wide trailer and Thanksgiving parade floats. In the writing shared (unequally) between him and the aforementioned beloved girlfriend, his sections tend to be the subjectivel funnier ones and/or the action sequences.

    I couldn't have loved this book more. The story was incredible, the characters were vibrant and interesting, and the settings came alive like real places I could go visit. A blog post led me here calling this book The Hunger Games with lesbians or something like that. I loved The Hunger Games, but I honestly liked Anaxilea more. Anaxilea is the perfect combination of strength and vulnerability, but I really loved the parts where the story shifted to the shepherd boy Edoni to see the world from a more realistic perspective since Anaxilea is kind of a dreamer. The action scenes were thrilling. The romance was heartwarming and honest. The deaths of beloved characters were gut-wrenching. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for more after finishing The Hunger Games trilogy.
