Amazonian warriors, epic battles, lies, secrets, love, and betrayal. All the feels and emotions in this amazing new story by author Elizabeth Isaacs, The Scythian Trials will take you on a journey for the truth that could end all of mankind.
The Scythian Trials takes on a sort of dystopian-world feel, where the ancient Gods and Goddesses of the past blurs into the present. Nya Thalestris, a direct descendant of Ares and Otrera, is the last of her pure bloodline and it seems everyone from across the globe is interested in taking her as a mate. Nya however, has other intentions as the mere thought of having another male close to her sends her mind and body to fear and pain. She just wants to be left alone to live her life as an Amazonian warrior and not have to worry about carrying on the brutal traditions of her kind.
The Scythian Trials is a very well-written story. From the first pages to the very end, I couldn’t help but feel Nya’s plight and cheering her on to solve the mysteries of her past. Lost to everyone around her for several years, the gaps in Nya’s life fills her with dread every time her trainer and friend, Jax, helps her open up. Something sinister is deeply embedded in her memory and the only way for Nya to overcome her fear of her destiny is to find out what happened in her past.
The Scythian Trials is a mixture of the old ancient warriors of Greece to the new technologically advanced inhabitants of Earth. There are contenders from all over the world for Nya’s heart and hand but only one can win. Will it be Jax, the mysterious and broodingly handsome warrior turned psychologist, or Killian the handsome and cunning Scottish fighter, or Aran, the hulking leader from Africa? Throw in an old flame who will do everything to win back Nya and you’ve got a heart pounding story from beginning to end.
Descendants of the Amazons, the Scythians work alongside prominent governments but answer to no one. Warriors living on the fringe of civilization, they live by one credo: Strength through Equality. Power through Knowledge.
Nya Thalestris is the brightest Scythian of her generation. Strong, capable, ruthless, she is sure to earn a spot in the Trials, a time-honored mating ritual responsible for the evolution of her species.
Abducted by their sworn enemy, the Drahzda, Nya is forever altered and spirals out of control. The Society sends in Jax Nickius. Infamous psychologist and one of the most brutal warriors of their kind, he discovers triggers planted in Nya’s mind. As Nya solidifies her spot in the Trials, Jax develops a plan to help her heal—while pursuing her as a mate. But, Nya’s attraction to Jax is at war with her instinct to never let anyone get too close.
During the Trials, Nya’s repressed memories surface, revealing a new enemy—one from inside the consulate walls—and a traitorous alliance on the horizon that could irrevocably change the course of history.
Since before the Bronze Age, the Society has managed to safeguard humanity from itself … until now.
