Co-written with Robert J. Harris From www.harris-authors.com: Hippolyta is a true Amazon princess. Her heart beats for the thrill of the hunt, the rush of her daily battle training, and the abiding community of her fellow female warriors. She would do anything to protect the secure, empowering life the Amazons have built. But when her entire world is threatened, will this thirteen-year-old warrior be able to save it? The adventure begins when she must save the life of her newborn baby brother by taking him to his father, King Laomedon of Troy. Here she narrowly escapes being killed, only to return home and discover that the Amazons have been placed under a terrible curse. To lift the curse she will have to do the unthinkable: accept the love and help of a boy, Tithonus, Prince of Troy. The two journey eastward to the Amazons" mythical homeland of Arimaspa, facing mythical beasts, ferocious Kethite warriors and the fury of the elements. At the end of her journey Hippolyta will learn what it really means to be an Amazon: finding the courage to face your fears and overcome them in order to change the world.
