Publisher's Summary

When the jealous high priest of Enki murders the king during a holy festival and stages a takeover of the palace, Crown Prince Ammon-shur must flee for his life with nothing more than the clothes on his back. His faithful bodyguard, Balashi, saves him from capture and death at the hands of his enemies, and together the two make their way to the ancient city of Uruk, home of the ancient and powerful temple of Inanna. Ammon goes to the temple to seek allies that he might recruit to his cause to unseat the high priest of Enki and retake his throne. While at the temple, he meets Iltani, the fascinating and beautiful high priestess of Inanna. Ammon scarcely gets to know her before discovering that she is enmeshed in her own struggles against the members of the temple council, who maintain her as a powerless figurehead. Far from finding aid for his own cause, Ammon finds himself promising to help Iltani free herself from the influence of the temple council as well as to help her investigate a darker plot....

    "Fast-paced and engrossing book!"

    Prince of Eridu is a great book, well worth the time and money. Look elsewhere for slowly plodding, dry drama. This is an easy page turner with engaging characters and an plot that draws you in. As I approached the end I actually started really slowing down in the hopes of delaying the inevitable end of the book. I think it would be well-suited for conversion into to a Hollywood screenplay, too.

    I hope to see more installments from this author. If you are interested enough to read this review, there's a very good probability you will like this book. Get it now or at least put it on your wish list.

    "Fun read, interesting setting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to others, since it had great insights to a culture that was new to me. I love being "transported" to other worlds I've never encountered. In this case, it was ancient middle east. I know very little of the setting, but felt the author had a good amount of details that made it authentic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the main character. He was funny, clever and dumb all at the same time. Hmm, pretty much the same way I see myself... I guess thats why I like him. What does that say about me?


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The climax where the main character had to do some rescuing (don't want to give away the ending) was a lot of fun.
