Ted Dekker at his best!
This is a story of betrayal, violence, shame and honour.
A Bedouin woman, Maviah, finds herself at the mercy of conflicting kings and warriors in the convoluted politics of the Middle East around the year 30 AD.
She meets up with another king, Yeshua (Jesus), who shows her that there is another kingdom that is not of this world- a kingdom of love rather than hate, of forgiveness rather than fear.
It is different to much of Dekker’s writing, but still has his trademark action plots exploring confrontation between good and evil.
