As luck would have it, I happen to receive two books in the same month about Zenobia. "Zenobia- Challenging a Lengend" was an excellent introductory read. Wallace gave many interesting details about Zenobia. This was my first time hearing about this historical figure. It was a fantastic introduction and even though I did not read the first book in the series it did not impede my enj

Set immediately after the first book, Challenging A Legend continues to detail Zenobia’s journey to become the strong-willed, charismatic woman history remembers her to be. She learns the benefit of being a legend, and the heartbreak of a first love. She takes on her enemies with the intelligence I’ve come to expect from her character.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the second book in Russ Wallace's Zenobia series, Zenobia – challenging a legend. This book picks up right where Zenobia – birth of a legend left off. In challenging the legend, we get to watch Zenobia as she develops into a brave, intelligent, cunning young woman. Her overriding motivation as she grows is to establish justice and defeat injustice in the world. No easy task in the time of the corrupt Roman empire. The story was fast paced and kept me reading to see w ...more

Book two in the Zenobia book series has it all with education in Alexandria, Egypt as the primary focus at the beginning of the book. You experience Zenobia's first crush. The 2nd half of the book is full of adventure with kidnappings, hunting, fighting, revenge, chases, escapes, and piracy.
Zenobia learns a heart breaking truth about love and this will mold her into the women she's destine to become.
