The Queen Series by LJ Maas

                              The book cover can be found at Calli's Creations

1) To Become A Queen
In this "first time" story, a brutal attack on Gabrielle leaves Xena and Gabrielle to recuperate in the Amazon village, as their hidden dreamscapes threaten to tear Warrior and Bard apart.

2) Quest For A Queen
Xena must fend off her past against mortals and Gods to rescue the other half of her soul. At the same time, Gabrielle must complete her own Quest to find out who she is as a woman, a bard, a lover & friend, most importantly, as an Amazon Queen.

3) The Heart Of A Queen
Before they are to be joined in front of the eyes of the Amazon Nation, an old flame comes back into Xena's life. Will an old lover be able to tempt the Warrior to step across the line of fidelity? Gabrielle must deal with this very real threat to her future, while at the same time the young Queen must also find a way to face her own heritage, finally revealed by her mother.

4) The Queen Of My Heart
A deadly sickness sweeps through the Amazons until even their Queen is afflicted with the unknown fever. The only thing that can save an entire Nation is the Elixir of Life, a liquid with the ability to heal the ills of any mortal or God. Xena, along with her friends Eponin and Autolycus, embark on a quest for the Elixir, which can restore the Amazons, but the potion is being closely guarded on the island of Delos. Along the way, Xena reminisces to herself about her wife. It is through the Warrior's eyes that we get to see how she met and traveled with the young woman from Potidaea, the woman that has become the Queen of her Heart.

5) Happy Anniversary, Gabrielle
The Summer Solstice is Xena and Gabrielle's first anniversary and this just happens to be the Warrior's present to her bard. It also takes care of one of Xena's biggest desires, to have been Gabrielle's first lover. So, what would happen if Xena had the ability to go back to that day? You know the infamous one when Perdicus asked Gabrielle to marry him? Would said Warrior finally swallow her pride and tell the bard about her feelings, or will she allow history to repeat itself?

6) Happy Anniversary, Xena
This is the Bard's present to her Warrior. Turnabout is fair play, as they say, and Gabrielle has a surprise for Xena. We've seen what can happen within the dreamscape when two people try to relive an event in the past. Things don't always go as planned. Gabrielle is ecstatic about the gift that Xena gave her. So, what about Xena's first time? The young Queen begins to wonder what would have happened that summer that Xena turned sixteen, if the bard actually met her wife as that young woman.

7) To Walk The Path Of A Queen
The latest entry in LJ's very popular Queen series. Gabrielle and Xena go through a dark period, do they come out of it unscathed?

8) The Perfect Gift
Gabrielle's pregnant and learning to cope with her godly powers with Ares as her mentor. Xena is bored and enlists little Tai to have a little fun at the expense of Ares. And warlords are making everyone miserable. A typical day in Amazonia.
