Blurb: 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.

Review in 5: Suspenseful, Intriguing, nail-biting, sexy, and pretty darn good.

Review: I started reading this book on my first day here in NYC for BEA. I was lying on the bed waiting for the bathroom to get free, soon enough I was completely engrossed. Ms. Devoti knows how to draw a reader into a story and just latch them onto the book like a leach, like my imagery there? ;) I was literally engrossed to the point of not being able to hear or see anyone around me while reading this story. The book is a sequel but you don't need to have read the first book to understand what is happening in this book.

Zery is strong and she grows a bit with the story. I love the range of characters personalities in this book as well. The plot is sturdy and moves at an excellent pace, and besides that, it is a contemporary story of Amazons, it definitely is unique. Worth the read without a doubt.

Series: This is Amazons, Book 2. The first is Amazon Ink
