It was the most threatening sight she had ever seen. Russ Wallace is life-long student of history, religion, politics, and social issues. As an instructor, he came to value the critical thinking so necessary to navigate the minefields of propaganda while searching for truths.
As a world traveler, Russ learned the opposing views and prejudices underlying many of the problems in human society, ancient and modern. He employs a vivid imagination to fill in the life of Zenobia, a real historical figure and one of the most fascinating women who ever lived. He is working on future books in the Zenobia book series. This sounds very intriguing. I had never heard of Zenobia. After doing a bit of research, I found her to be quite fascinating. Like Liked by 2 people.

My usual reading is spying and conspiracy against world governments. I was told to try this book by a close friend. I must say, to my surprise I really enjoyed it.
First, the description of the characters was such that it took little imagination to visualize them. Because of that I was sucked into the story.

Zenobia as well as other main characters were believable and the storyline was very entertaining. I hated to see the pages coming to a close since the story is yet far from over. I can't wait to see what is in store for Zenobia as she grows in life experience and wisdom. Please continue writing the rest of the story One person found this helpful. I very much enjoyed this book. I found Zenobia a highly sympathetic character that I wanted to keep reading and finding out more about.
I love reading about ancient history, and "Zenobia", by Russ Wallace had me so intrigued with various historical threads that I kept pausing in my reading to zip over to Wikipedia thank you, iPad! I felt my knowledge, as well as my enjoyment, vastly expanded by the time I reached the end.
Which is not really the end, as this is the first in a series covering the life of this historical figure, Zenobia. Based in Roman times, the story starts with Zenobia's birth. Her mother wisely hides her gender to save her life. The desert tribe leader, Zenobia's father feels he has enough girls to trade with other tribes, plus they are low on food.
Zenobia is raised as a boy, giving her the training and skills to become a great warrior. When her true gender is revealed the leaders of the tribe are impressed with Zenobia's archery skills and intelligence they let her live.
