For Ammon-Shur the struggle to end the slave trade in Sumeria is not going as planned. He has barely survived several attempts on his life and the few people he has been able to save are less than a drop in the bucket compared to the many thousands who are bought and sold across Sumeria every week.
When he decides to try a new approach to get people to care about slavery he finds himself in unfamiliar territory as a lifetime of mostly ignoring the gods is suddenly turned on its head by close daily contact with a prophet of the Lord of Light.
As Ammon struggles to find a way to accept his newfound piety the secret cabal of the worshipers of Chaos disrupt all of Ammon's plans and he finds that facing down dangerous bands of slavers is child's play compared to the new challenges that will require all of his wit and skill to survive.

What did you like best about this story?
Ammon's character is the perfect blend of folly, genius, and recklessness. He is what makes the story compelling. His drive to do whats right, but not having a clue how to get there and changing his mind frequently is refreshing.

Ammon's kids were spot on. I love his impersonation of the kid's voices.

I loved the connection to the biblical story of Abraham. This book even gives some interesting backstory to bring new life to the biblical tale.
