Poznansky takes us along to enjoy David's escapades

Here is a lovely new review of my novel, Rise to Power:

5.0 out of 5 stars Poznansky takes us along to enjoy David's escapades andNovember 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rise to Power (The David Chronicles Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
As I studied the compelling artwork on the cover of Ms. Pozansky's Volume 1 of the David Chronicles'- Rise to Power, I am intrigued by the expression on David's face. At once he appears willfull, petulant, and certainly immature. So this is a hint, then, of the personality of this Entertainer at Court, whose mission is to charm the King and his loyal followers, but who quickly becomes seduced himself by the power of King Saul, and eventually so ambitious of possessing the Crown himself, that he will become obsessed to seize the Crown. He will soon realize that the only way he can accomplish this goal is to slay his Patron, King Saul.

What follows is a delightful elaboration of the biblical story of David, as his plan to take over the Reign of King Saul evolves. There are exciting adventures as David seeks to prove his manhood, along with some irony, and occasional comedy, as he stumbles on his way to slaying Goliath, as he also sets out to prove that he can fell the Giant.

Ms. Poznansky takes us along to enjoy David's escapades and watch the young David will himself to maturity, such that he will become the King. We are thoroughly entertained by Ms. Poznansky as she imbues qualities of modern youthful arrogance of David, as she fleshes out David's modern personality traits, and even the language of an emerging Great Warrior.
