BLOG TOUR: Amazon Queen by Lori Devoti (Book Review 2010-82)

Product Description

Being an Amazon ruler just became a royal pain.Amazon queen Zery Kostovska has never questioned tribe traditions. After all, these rules have kept the tribe strong for millennia and enabled them to live undetected, even in modern-day America. Zery is tough, fair, commanding—the perfect Amazon leader.At least, she was. A new high priestess with a penchant for secrecy and technology is threatening Zery’s rule. Plus, with the discovery of the Amazon sons, males with the same skills as their female counterparts, even Zery can’t deny that the tribe must change. But how? Some want to cooperate with the sons. Others believe brutal new leadership is needed—and are willing to kill to make it happen.Once, Zery’s word was law. Now, she has no idea who to trust, especially with one powerful Amazon son making her question all her instincts. For Zery, tribe comes first, but the battle drawing near is unlike any she’s faced before . . . and losing might cost her both the tribe and her life.

LOVED IT

I read Amazon Ink when it first came out and was fascinated by the strong character of Mel.  This book is told from the point of view of Zery and the characters follow through in this one as well.  If you haven't read the first book in the series, I think you can pick this one up and easily get into the story and characters.  This is fast paced and there is some potential romance but it is not fully followed through.  There are some nice subplots that really keep the story moving and I hope that the story will develop even more in the next book in the series.  This is a wonderful urban fantasy that is nicely done.
