This review is from: Rise to Power (The David Chronicles) (Kindle Edition)
This a rich, vibrant story but unlike most novels based on Biblical figures, David is accessible and human. The reader is drawn into his head, into his heart, and into his world. I have a strong preference for first person narrative as it brings the reader ever closer to the protagonist. In Rise to Power, the author’s ability to see events, betrayals, and longings through David’s eyes is almost mesmerizing. Yes, the implements of war and cruelty were radically different in David’s time and yet the craving for power and immortality remains unchanged today. Was David a merciless Gordon Gekko of his times or a true Biblical hero? I found this a fascinating read.
