Women’s Web & Juggernaut Books invite you to join us on an exciting blogathon, inspired by the warrior women of history.
In Devi Yesodharan’s Empire, a young Greek girl in India, Aremis grows up to be a fearsome warrior guarding the Chola emperor. Whether literally like Aremis, or in so many other ways, women are warriors! Share a warrior story of a woman you know – maybe even yourself.
Empire is a stunning historical novel set in the time of the Chola empire, with superb plotting and a memorable and unique heroine, Aremis.
When a Greek pirate ship sails in to loot the wealth of the Cholas, it is brutally defeated by the navy and forced to pay a compensation. A payment that includes a twelve-year-old girl, Aremis.
Aremis grows up to be a skilled warrior, a great asset to the Cholas. But she is a foreigner among her captors, even though the emperor trusts her to guard his person. Empire is the story of a lone Greek girl among Tamil boys.
Get set for an exciting read at Juggernaut Books.
Share your story of a warrior woman – perhaps a woman you know who’s battled the odds, or someone who actually serves in the forces, or a historical warrior woman – or maybe yourself!
There are no limits to this story-telling – except your imagination. We’re waiting to hear your story, inspired by that of Aremis.
