Although this is a well written and well researched novel, I really struggled to connect with the story and characters. I couldn't help but compare it to Lynn Austin's Chronicles of the Kings series which is one of my all time favorites. It's hard to read about the same characters, but see them portrayed so differently. This really colored my perspective. Still, if you are unfamiliar with the story of Hezekiah this would be a good place to start.
I received this book for free for the purpose of review.
