This review is from: The Edge of Revolt (The David Chronicles Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
This has been a fabulous, soaring trilogy, telling the story of King David from his perspective, in his voice. The last part doesn't disappoint. Here we have the king in his later years beset by turmoil, betrayal, tragedy and revolution. The author uses a sweeping canvas to paint a portrait of a man with all his faults and shortcomings who nevertheless inspired a nation. This is no sycophantic retelling of the bible stories; this is an epic, rich with detail, passion, intrigue and treachery. But this king is also capable of great love and tenderness. He is a poet and musician, a complex, not always loveable character, but all the more real and compelling for that. Uvi Poznansky has done an incredible job of bringing such a well known and revered character to life so effectively and for keeping up the pace for the entire trilogy. I have been riveted throughout this series and thoroughly recommend it.
