Characters will suddenly recall things at the last minute or find a critical piece of evidence. This left me feeling cheated. Yet the story is still well done and left me feeling satisfied overall. This makes what she has to do next more difficult. Diana hides the young lady, Alia Mayeux Keralis, in a cave until she can decide what to do. This is when Amazons start getting very sick and earthquakes begin. Alia has no idea that she is a Warbringer.
The birth of a Warbringer signals an age of conflict. Wars will soon follow such as WWII.
Everywhere she goes people will suddenly become violent. If the Warbringer dies before her seventeenth birthday, no war will come. Therefore, this is a secret society dedicated to identifying and assassinating all Warbringers — and they have Alia targeted.
Diana learns about magical springs at the southern coast of Greece. If she can get Alia off Themyscira without anyone knowing and to the springs before the start of Hekatombaion the first month in the old Greek calendar then the line of Warbringers will be broken. Diana, Alia, and a few people Alia trusts must race to the magical springs while avoiding the Warbringer conflicts and dodging assassins.
From the first page until the last, this story is nonstop action. It was fun to be on Themyscira during the beginning and ending of this book, but watching Diana have an adventure while she was only a teen was even more fun. Of course, adults do not even consider Diana able to be a bodyguard at first. But the Amazon princess has borrowed a few familiar items from the island to help. Watching Diana in battle was thrilling, no matter her age.
The story has some twists, but a few of them are predicable. Others blindsided me. This story is well worth your time and money!

Fiction - HUNTRESS' BOOK REVIEWS
Henry Grey, marched through blustering conditions in sub-freezing temperatures. New shoes came from the dead. Marching battle became the norm. Private Louis Templeton, another woman dressed as a man in a dog-eat-dog war. Aiden James and Fiona Fraser prove to be a formidable writing team in this incisive story about the women in history who have pretended to be men in order to serve in the military. This writing duo brought the war to life in vivid detail for me as I viewed the men fighting battles in egregious conditions and the women who have to deal with the same, as well as to keep their genders secret.
The story begins in the year and ends with the war. Not including the Epilogue. The tale swaps between the views of Hattie and her husband, Jonas, both serving in different places. Both fighting in hopes of seeing each other again someday. This fictional piece of history kept me glued to my seat as I eagerly anticipated what would come next.

When word comes that Andrew has been murdered, Clarissa is devastated. However, there is a silver lining. Then murder happens again. Emma does her best to do right by her friends and family, but people are often not who they claim to be and one must be careful as to what they believe to be real. Can Emma find out the truth before things spiral out of control? For someone so young, the character of Emma has a sensible head on her shoulders.
If it should not happen in , then it does not happen in this story. The world just faded away. This shows such talent in an author, in my humble opinion. You can bet that I will be keeping a close eye on her future releases. The killer was never identified. Rumors of who could have done it and why still circulate today. Now the cold case has been assigned to Morris Keene.
