(2015)
(A book in the Xena - Warrior Princess series)
An omnibus of novels by

 
Haunted by her troubled and violent past, Xena, the Warrior Princess, now travels the ancient world with her trusted companion, the bard Gabrielle, defending the innocent and protecting the honourable.

The Empty Throne

In the years after the Trojan War, as warriors and kings travel the ancient world returning to their homes, Xena, the Warrior Princess, and her apprentice, the bard Gabrielle, travel to Ithaca on a mission for the king of Sparta.

Yet the throne of Ithaca sits empty, waiting for the return of its ruler, Odysseus, and the realm is overrun by gangs of armed bandits determined to claim the kingdom and its queen for their own. With only their intellect and the weapons they carry, Xena and Gabrielle set out to free Ithaca from its invaders. But will that be enough to defeat the warlord Draco and his thugs?

The Huntress and the Sphinx

Passing through Athens, Xena, the Warrior Princess, and her apprentice, the bard Gabrielle, are just in time for the women's foot races - in which the legendary hunter, Atalanta, will be running. But when a band of armed raiders kidnap a group of maidens, Xena and Gabrielle must rely on Atalanta's tracking skills to find the girls before it is too late.

But Atalanta may not be who she seems, and as the trail leads to a sphinx - one of the most dangerous and duplicitous creatures of the ancient world - Xena and Atalanta's skills with the blade become meaningless, and only Gabrielle can save them.
