They are the women of war.
In ancient Themiscyra, Hippolyte rules as Queen of the Amazons. Feared throughout Greece, their skills on the battlefield are unmatched. But when a ship lands on their shores, it brings something more dangerous than the threat of war. It brings a future Hippolyte could never have dreamed of.
Swept away to Athens, Hippolyte learns a love that transcends even the bond of the Amazon women. Can she forget her warrior past and forge a new life she had never dreamed of?
With her sister gone, Penthesilea has no choice but to rise as the new Queen of the Amazons. She does so with a ferocity that sparks terror throughout the Aegean. Replacing her sister’s compassion and wisdom, Penthesilea rules with impulsiveness and might.
So when Hippolyte’s world starts to crumble, it is up to Penthesilea to decide how far she will go to defend their honor.

Queens of Themiscyra is a compulsive, spellbinding, adventurous book that gently unravels page by page. Hannah’s writing is clear and sharp, and she can leave your heart in a few short words; it gets your mind engaged and working without you realizing it.
