I have never read any books by this author but I will certainly be looking for the next installment of this series.
I mostly enjoy reading Lesbian fiction,so I was pleasantly surprised to find this book in my “Fussy Librarian “ recommendations.
Zena ( not Xena ) is a slave in a future world who longs for the chance to be free.
Her dream is to be a warrior so she can free herself and her family.
Hope Book 2 is in the works.
