It opens with a prologue from thirteen year old Zenobia, a confident young lady not averse to speaking her mind as she sits on the king’s council. Impressed by what he hears, King Odenathus takes Zenobia as his wife. Together they are strong rulers, keeping the Persians at bay, but ever aware of their Roman overlords.
Zenobia is clever and ambitious, giving her husband sons and fighting by his side. She also keeps trade routes open and makes friends in neighbouring countries. Everyone talks of the greed and corruption of Rome, and its downfall is predicted. Zenobia is determined to put the needs of the Syrian people before that of Rome.
Most of the story is told by Zabdas, Zenobia’s half-brother, as are the other books in the series. This is about a women known as the warrior Queen of Palmyra. The series is based on the true life story of Septimia Zenobia, a Syrian national hero.
This is the first book I have read in the series and the subject matter was very interesting, I know little about the Eastern Roman empire, but I got a real sense of the desert and the struggle for survival. Some chapters were told at a later date by Samira, Zabdas’s Granddaughter, so I assume there will be another book in the series where her role becomes central.
Overall, an interesting period in history. If this intrigues you, it might be worth starting with book #1 of the series and working through to get the full story of the Rebel Queen.
