Amazon Princess Aleka (Amazon Warrior Chronicles 1) by Levese Williams (English review)

Amazon Princess Aleka (Amazon Warrior Chronicles 1)

Hello, my dear followers and friend,

it is about real friendship and false friends, extended battle scenes and the closeness and togetherness of one group.

Background information:
Aleka is the daughter of one of the elders of the Amazonian tribe. The Amazonian tribe consists of only women who are trained in fighting with all kinds of weapons and who normally develop magical abilities at the age of 13. For example, Desdemona has the power over fire, Luna can summon water, Looki can change appearances and Cyrene, Aleka's mother, can command lightning.The Elders manage the Amazons. Amazons are stronger, taller and faster than normal human women. They live at a common campsite and as nomads. It is frowned upon to love a human man. They are sworn enemies with the Greeks.

The Plot:
Aleka has no magical abilities and is inexperienced in weapons training. Aleka is known to have her head in the clouds and some believe she is still a bit too childish to go into battle (which is an honour for Amazons). She fears not to be respected enough by her elders and her mother And she also lives in the shadow of her mother who is a great warrior and leader. Aleka also can't discuss about the mystical abilities the rest of her age group has. Aleka also feels like something is holding her back so she can't advance her abilities. That's why she mostly feels like an outsider between the Amazonian, except with her best friend Delia.

Unfortunately Delia vanished from one day to another. And what is even worse that Cyrene believes that Delia is in love with the enemy, a Greek soldier, named Artrois and that's the reason Delia left camp.

Alaska is of course upset and she wants to search for Delia in secret. However, her mother already told Cassie to bring Aleka back. Cassie is the one of all people Aleka don't stand and can't get along because Cassie seems to be all Aleka can never be: Cassie is admired by the elders, she is a great warrior and has the love and respect of Cyrene.

Notwithstanding, Aleka makes it happen to use Lookie as a distraction. Despite all that, Aleka didn't expect Cassie to be so fast and Cassie rapidly catches up with her and they make a deal: Cassie will help to track for Delia for five days, but afterwards they go home.

What will happen in these five days?
Will Cassie and Aleka get along?
And what happened with Delia?

Summary: A wonderful story full of adventures, love and a surprising twist.

5- Stars!!!

Kind regards,
