King's Shadow
King's Shadow: A Novel of King Herod's Court | Angela Hunt
4 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
Two women occupy a place in Herod's court. The first, Salome, is the king's only sister, a resentful woman who has been told she is from an inferior race, a people God will never accept or approve. The second woman, Zara, is a lowly handmaid who serves Salome, but where Salome spies conspiracies and treachery, Zara sees hurting people in need of understanding and compassion. Powerful and powerless, Idumean and Jew, selfish and selfless--both women struggle to reach their goals and survive in Herod the Great's tumultuous court, where no one is trustworthy and no one is safe.

I have completed The Silent Years series which tells the stories of the 400 years between The Old Testament and New Testament with a focus on prominent women in that time. I loved this series! Extremely interesting and beautiful written ✨️✨️✨️✨️✨️

Looking at the life of King Herod through the eyes of his sister is the profound perspective of this book. While the book never apologizes for Herod‘s violence, the author weaves in the historical narrative that provides a deeper understanding. Yet, the story never loses its way or become preachy. This book left you wanting more even though it is the last one in the series.
