In the Shadow of Jezebel Book Review

About the Book

Princess Jehosheba wants nothing more than to please the harsh and demanding Queen Athaliah, daughter of the notorious Queen Jezebel. Her work as a priestess in the temple of Baal seems to do the trick. But when a mysterious letter from the dead prophet Elijah predicts doom for the royal household, Jehosheba realizes that the dark arts she practices reach beyond the realm of earthly governments. To further Athaliah and Jezebel’s strategies, she is forced to marry Yahweh’s high priest and enters the unfamiliar world of Yahweh’s temple. Can her new husband show her the truth and love she craves? And can Jehosheba overcome her fear and save the family–and the nation–she loves?(Goodreads)

 My Review

 Biblical fiction is not always the first book I pick up, but I enjoy some. This book landed right in the middle for me as parts of the book were slow and I thought it was a bit hard to follow. There are a lot of characters (there is a full list in the front in case you get confused). While I like Sheba's character, I liked the secondary characters more. I enjoyed the Biblical history, very well researched. I need to go and read about this part in the Bible, it's not something I know much about. 

Overall if you like Biblical fiction you will enjoy this book, if they are not your typical read you probably wouldn't like it. 

This is the fourth book in the Treasure of His Love Series.
