Gelizeh (Gl'xh) is a woman in a world of women. Marked for death by the authorities as a radical, she uncovers the oldest truths of her species, forcing her to choose the Amaxen's future destiny: follow her conditioning to defend the Amaxeni traditions, or accept a new biological paradigm.
Amaxeno is centered on a race of “space-Amazons” loosely influenced by the mythical Amazons. They are the genetic off-shoots of a future Humanity who face the consequences of “Adam’s Curse”, which hypothesizes the eventual loss of male humans due to the continued dilution of the Y-chromosome in the human genome. The story’s main character Gl’xh becomes the target of the authorities, despite the fact that she is a loyal, though failing, Seneschal. Her fight for survival and answers lead her to discover the origins of her species, and her own true identity.
