Hippolyta is a true Amazon princess: Her heart beats for the thrill of the hunt, the rush of her daily battle training, and the abiding community of her fellow female warriors. She would do anything to protect the secure, empowering life the Amazons have built. But when her entire world is threatened, will this thirteen-year-old warrior be able to save it?
Thrust into a race with time, fighting against incredible odds and even the gods themselves, Hippolyta will have to do the unthinkable to save the legendary race of female warriors: accept the help and love of a boy. And as she journeys to her nation's mythical homeland of Arimaspa in search of salvation, Hippolyta finally learns what it really means to be an Amazon: finding the courage to face your fears and overcome them in order to change the world.
Jane Yolen and Robert J. Harris have written yet another compelling and engaging adventure story, this time exploring the secret, mythical world of the Amazons.
