Publisher's Summary

Two women occupy a place in Herod's court: the king's only sister, Salome, a resentful woman who has been told she is from an inferior race, and her lowly handmaid, Zara, who sees the hurt in those around her. Both women struggle to reach their goals and survive in Herod the Greats tumultuous court, where no one is trustworthy and no one is safe.

Great Story line.

I really enjoyed the story. it was very well executed. The timelines all met, with the History I had learned. I enjoyed it very much. I still had trouble, with the voice distinctions of some of the Characters.

Interesting

Interesting story line. Historical fiction. It is something to think about to be alive during those days right before Jesus's birth.

Favorite Author

I was so enthralled by the historical take on the bible. This is the fourth book in the series, to make a book out of the prophets kept me wanting more. Author is one of my favorite now and so are the Narrators. I search by author and also by narrators. If you enjoy the author, you have to also like the narrators.

Herod not so great!

It was interesting learning more about this character but I found there were just too many names! I had to keep rewinding. Also the men's voices were too hard in the ears - sorry. I am an avid follower of both the author and the narrator but I'm afraid I couldn't give the perfect rating this time. Keep writing though!
