Book Review: King’s Shadow

Have you ever wondered what life was like in King Herod’s court? Wait no longer. This book will reveal all the intrigue, loyalty and duplicity in his court.

Two women live in King’s Herod’s palace. His only sister, Salome, and her handmaid, Zara. Both struggle to survive where spies, treachery and conspiracy lingers at every corner.

Both women struggle to reach their goals and survive each day, proving life isn’t easy whether you are a Jew or Idumean.

This is my first Angela Hunt book, but it won’t be my last. She has really brought the characters to life and fleshed out their motives and desires. She provides a deeper look into life during Biblical times, especially the years leading up to the birth of Christ.

Whether you love a good read, historical fiction or Biblical fiction, I highly recommend King’s Shadow {The Silent Years}.

This is the final book in the series The Silent Year {which takes place in the years between the end of the book of Malachi and birth of Christ}. However, it easily serves as a stand-a-lone book. Having not read the other books in this series this was an enjoyable read. I look forward to checking out Angela Hunt’s other books.

**I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
