The Guardian's Promise



A Kingdom in Jeopardy

An evil queen and her royal guards will stop at nothing to find and kill the rightful heir to the throne of Judah. When their pursuit leads them to Mira's village, only her father's bond servant, Ari, a man shrouded in secrets, can keep Mira safe.

Abandoning his life as a temple guard and becoming an indentured servant was the only way Ari could protect young Joash, the true King of Judah, from Queen Athaliah. But his sacred duty prevents him from confessing his feelings for his master's daughter. With the future of their nation on the line, Ari and Mira will risk everything to save their people.

My Review:

I don't read biblical fiction. It's just not a time period that interests me when it comes to romance but I'd heard of Christina Rich around cyberspace and decided to take a risk. Oh my goodness, but I'm so glad I did. What an astounding debut novel! Toe-curling, swoonworthy romance, diabolical intrigue, intense action and a solid inspirational thread made this an awesome read. Rich has a beautiful voice. Her words evoke rich images that really enhance the read. I devoured this book in a day.  A stunning debut novel.

  1. I think this sounds like a good read. I have been slowly easing myself into Biblical Fiction. There are really some good authors that write Biblical Fiction!
