"Austin capably weaves her intertwined threads and creates believable characters in conflict with themselves and with each other." (Historical Novels Review)
I could not put this book down. One of the real beauties of this book was the step by step
telling of how Manasseh was seduced into total and complete idolatry.
All of the books in Austin's series of the kings.
I liked the pace and the not over the top dramatization.
Joshua's interaction with Rabbi Gershom. The Rabbi explained that you have to ask Yahweh the right question to get an answer from Him. I felt as if I was on holy ground as the Rabbi taught Joshua. The character Zeri was clever and his twisting of the Tora was convincing and eerie.
the stories of the old testament come to life and have more meaning and then I can remember the history.
My only difficulty with the narration is the way some chapter endings roll right into the next chapter without stopping. But it's not that bad and it's the only negative thing I have to say about the book.
The plot was engaging and the prose was inviting. The characters really felt real. Loved it.
Excellent. This series has inspired me to deeply study these lives in the Old Testament and how they struggle with faith and trusting God continually just as we do
Lynn Austin not only writes in a captivating manner, but her ability to weave an interesting story that is also historically sound makes this a fascinating and entertaining experience. Once again, Suzanne Token delivers an outstanding performance.
If time had allowed I would have listened to this entire book in one sitting. The performance is breathtaking. I was on the edge of seat and in many moments, yearning to worship God.
Excellent storyline, stays true to biblical narrative. Narrator very talented! Made me feel like I was hearing several different people!
