The Amazon Queen
a journey to another time and place. Step back into a world where Greek
gods still roam the earth, where Pegasus still flies, and where magic is
very much alive and working. Venture forth and enter a doorway back to the
time of the Ancient Mothers, a place where we can all be Amazon Queens if
we but wish it so.
Begin the journey. Turn the first page. Read on, and wake the Amazon Spirit which resides in all of us.
Daughters of Artemis
|It is ten
years after the battle that almost completely wiped out the once strong
and proud Amazon Nation, a battle in which their queen, Aradia, was captured.
Betrayed by one of their own sister tribes, the Amazons are on the verge
of extinction. Powerful forces are at work to see that they do not recover.
Aradia manages to escape and makes her way home to reunite and rebuild the scattered remnants of the Nation. She must retrieve and discover the secrets of the elusive Sword of Artemis in time to evade recapture by the Romans and the complete destruction of her people. Can her protege -- a young girl caught up in mysterious forces and hampered by her own thirst for revenge against her mother's killers -- overcome her anger and reunite all the Amazon tribes in order to battle their common enemy?
