A transformative coming-of-age story that pierces the soul and heals the spirit. It is an ancient story with lessons for all time…a book that asks many profound questions, for which there are many answers. A stunning tale of primal power and mythic beauty from a New York Times bestselling author. Rain is a girl of the Amazon tribe of women warriors, the daughter of Queen Alina, living in a time of blood and fear. As the future leader of her people, she must seek and hold fast to her inner warrior. But amid the horrors of the battlefield, Rain is startled and mystified by the first stirrings of mercy towards the enemy–men–within her. What she encounters along the poignant and harrowing path toward her destiny–a kind young man, a strange recurrent prophecy, and a condemned baby brother–lead her, against odds, to forge mercy, love, and peace.
