Portrayed by Marian Rivera, Amaya is a story of a girl, born as princess who will soon became a slave, because of her step mother and at the end will be destined to be the most powerful woman of her time.

Amaya is recommended for Filipino audiences. General Patronage. To shows the ancestor of the Filipino. This novel also shows the value and traditions of the Filipino – respect for the elder, though gallantry, bravery, perseverance in fighting for what is right.

The novel is impressive also because of the colorful native costumes.
