Review by~ LinDee Rochelle -Penchant for Penning ~ 10/01/11
Zenobia was beautiful, intelligent,and powerful. And she was real. Russ Wallace's Zenobia: Birth of a Legend, Book1, is a rich coming-of-age saga based on true events that transport you back in time to the desert of ancient Syria, 250 CE. It chronicles what is known of the Syrian queen's youth, wrapped in imaginative tales of the vibrant life she might have led. To protect her life, Zenobia's gender was hidden until her ninth year. She understood the need for deception, but once exposed, the dynamic girl persuaded their male-dominated tribe to fulfill her dream,training her to become a cunning warrior. The new twist of discovery in Zenobia's life offered the best of both worlds, creating a budding womanly warrior few men could resist. I love reading historical novels and this one is particularly interesting. Having traveled through the Middle East, which was once part of Zenobia's landscape, I easily visualized the ancient events Wallace depicts. Aptly blending fact and fiction is a tricky art, but he cleverly mixes education, history, political and religious theories, action and adventure, with a young girl's emotional discoveries. Zenobia's allure will attract more than today's young adults, who will identify with the girl though they are millennia apart. Her thirst for knowledge and penchant for righteousness, and Wallace's historical acumen in satisfying them, will be a magnet for political aficionados and military tacticians. Like for me, she will resonate too, with women who admire the empowerment Zenobia embodies as she battles injustices. Well-written and imaginative, fast-paced and exciting, this is a book that will fascinate and charm. I not only identify with Zenobia's passion and staunch support of equality, but enjoy the personality Wallace infused into this exceptional ruler. With every page you will marvel at the intricate details of thought expressed by his characters, and wonder with him at  how little we have learned as a society, through the ages. Woven in the fascinating narrative of Zenobia, Russ Wallace features the humanity of history and sometimes lack of it acquainting us with a remarkable time in ancient cultures.Much like today, country borders and even whole countries appeared and disappeared in the earth s blink of an eye. And as now, world-changing events were largely due to the dynamic politics and warring strategies of those who ruled the most powerful countries Zenobia was such a leader. Book 1 is a great beginning.
Goodreads reviews
This is a great story with interesting characters and interesting events. I enjoyed everything I learned from it and I enjoyed the characters. I would recommend it especially if you love the ancient world. 
Bethany Swafford
Based on the real life historical figure, this book is the first in the chronicles of the early life of Zenobia. Saved from being killed as a baby for being female by her clever mother, Zenobia's life is almost too fantastic to be true. She is determined to learn all she can and to train like the men to be as great as she can be. She is a strong girl with enough determination and bravery to match twenty people.
Richly detailed and shining with brilliant research, this is a treasure for anyone who loves strong women and history.
