This is actually the second book in this series. "Amazon Ink" is the first book. I had not read that first book, but this book was written well with just enough background in the preface. In this book, Zery is a very traditional Amazon warrior Queen. However, the threat she thought she would have to face is not the one she will have to fight. Things nag at her especially with her new priestess, but are quickly thrown away. If you can't trust the tribe you pour your life into, then who can you trust? However, she finds that her blind devotion is just that, blind. As things start to unravel, she learns that a new greater threat has nothing to do with centuries bound tradition changing. In fact, those traditions changing could be the key to winning. In some ways this paranormal also reads as a mystery with action, twists and turns. It's a fast paced read and one I enjoyed. Even though the mystery was solved before the players solved it, it still was very entertaining. You could even imagine that there might be Amazons living amongst us today. I'd even try twirling a staff after reading this one if I wasn't sure I wouldn't either knock my self silly or give myself one heck of a migraine. So, I give this book 4 warrior cries. I think I will even try to locate that first book to read.

Zery, an Amazon Queen, has never been more unsure of anything in her life. For generations Zery and her people have lived quietly and without threats from outsiders. Now, the Amazon sons are showing signs of female traits which has her wondering if the males have any other talents they have been hiding. Zery admits that certain changes do need to be made within the tribe but she isn't quite sure how to go about it. Her power is slowly slipping away. Will she be able to save her people? Or will someone else take charge of the tribe and risk everything her people have tried so hard to protect? I liked this book. There were certain parts that I thought were kind of out there, but overall it's a fun book.

Nothing ever stays the same and that is something Amazon queen Zery is slowly coming to understand. For the past ten years, Zery has staunchly enforced the strict Amazon way of life in her small tribe but it seems that within a matter of days her very way is life is coming apart at the seams. Until recently, Zery considered her tribe's only enemy to be a group of sons - men who had been born to Amazons, but who had been abandoned at birth in order to preserve the all-female Amazon way of life. But it seems now a new enemy is stepping forward, one who would threaten to destroy every Amazon tradition and belief. With her leadership under question and help coming from the unlikeliest of groups: the Amazon sons, Zery must try to discover the source of betrayal. Before it destroys the entire tribe. Although intriguing in premise, Amazon Queen failed to deliver on a variety of fronts. I for one was extremely intrigued to learn more about such a fierce group of women who distance themselves from society in order to protect and maintain their ancient abilities. Unfortunately, Lori Devoti never manages to make me fond of any of her characters. Time after time, I found myself exasperated with Zery's lack of foresight - I mean, the woman supposedly had been chosen as queen for her leadership and brains, but all I saw was indecision and someone who was unable to connect the dots until every piece of the puzzle was laid out plainly for her to see. No foresight, no ingenuity. Maybe warrior Zery needed to spend a little less time at the gym and a little more time reading or studying. And that leads me to another issue: supposedly, the Amazons eschewed all types of technology in order to keep their distance from mainstream society, but I would think as an ancient civilization, they would have had to adapt and change their ways over the years in order to not obviously stand out anytime they were around normal humans. I mean, Zery had never even used a computer? Seems a little far fetched. And that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to my issues with this book. Very disappointing. And although Amazon Queen could have been a real page-turner, I was put off by the clumsy writing and my utter lack of emotional attachment to any of the characters. Definitely not one I'm going to be recommending.
