In this second volume of The David Chronicles, David is now the anointed King. He has achieved the money and power he craved. He can have any woman he chooses – and has amassed a considerable harem of jealous, competitive wives and concubines, who jockey for power and resent any new arrival, especially when that arrival is the woman he desires most of all – Bathsheba. But she is already married to Uriah, the Hittite. Will David resist his urges for once? Or will he place himself above the law and risk incurring divine wrath and retribution? Once again, Uvi Poznansky delivers a compelling story of love, intrigue, murder and battle, as King David tells his own story – with all his failings and fallibilities. A real page-turner which I devoured with great relish. Looking forward to Book 3 already!
