Summary: Fantasy inspired by the Book of Esther…
Bel-Tygeon, the fallen god-king of Belaal, has bowed to the Infinite and accepted life as a mortal. Now he is desperate to return to his kingdom. Hunted by his enemies, he accepts refuge among the Eosyths, at the bidding of Serena of Clan Darom. But Serena and her family are also Bel-Tygeon’s enemies, and he must conceal his true name and royal rank from them—even when he realizes that Serena is the woman he has sought for years. The woman he loves. The woman he longs to proclaim as his queen.
Yet she can never be his.
Serena of Clan Darom wants nothing more than to protect her family and to save her people, the Eosyths, from their many enemies. She cannot afford to fall in love with a madman. A stranger. Yet honor dictates that she must shelter Ty and protect him with her life. Will one act of kindness destroy everything she’s worked for and believed?
And how can the unknowable Infinite, worshiped by her lord-father, ever help her in their struggle to survive?
Child of Dust, are you My servant?
This is the second book I have read by R J Larson, and I must say that I really liked Queen. The story and characters were wonderfuly written, and I enjoyed this second book in the series. The author does an excellent job keeping the story moving and exciting. I couldn't put the book down, and I must say that any reader who loves fantasy and Biblical fiction, will love this book.
For those who have already read some of R J Larson's works, you will not be disappointed. And for new readers; A retelling mix of the Bible stories, you will find a new way to look at Biblical fiction.
I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars
I received this book free for an honest review.
