Isaiah's Legacy


Isaiah's Legacy

(Prophets and Kings #3)

by 






  • The drama of the Old Testament comes to life as Judah's most notorious king ascends to the throne in this gripping novel from the award-winning author of Isaiah's Daughter .

    At eight years old, Shulle has known only life in a small village with her loving but peculiar father. When Uncle Shebna offers shelter in Jerusalem in exchange for Shulle's help tutoring King Manasseh, Judah's five-year-old co-regent who displays the same peculiarities as her father, she's eager to experience the royal court. But Shulle soon realizes the limits of her father's strict adherence to Yahweh's Law when Uncle Shebna teaches her of the starry hosts and their power.

    Convinced Judah must be freed from Yahweh's chains, she begins the subtle swaying of young Manasseh, using her charm and skills on the boy no one else understands. When King Hezekiah dies, twelve-year-old Manasseh is thrust onto Judah's throne, bitter at Yahweh and eager to marry the girl he adores. Assyria's crown prince favors Manasseh and twists his brilliant mind toward cruelty, beginning Shulle's long and harrowing journey to discover the Yahweh she'd never known, guided with loving wisdom by Manasseh's mother: Isaiah's daughter, the heartbroken Hephzibah. Amid Judah's dark days, a desperate remnant emerges, claiming the Lord's promise, "Though we're helpless now, we're never hopeless--because we serve El Shaddai." Shulle is among them, a girl who becomes a queen through Isaiah's legacy.

    My thoughts (LVH):  Let me begin this review by saying I am not the best person to review Biblical fiction. I’m not a fan at all. That said, Mesu Andrews probably researched everything so I am not questioning her historical accuracy. I’m sure it’s as accurate as possible. And Mesu Andrews does tell a good story.
    As anyone raised in Sunday school—or read the Bible through—knows, Manasseh was one of the most evil kings to sit on the throne of Judah. This was a very dark time in Israel's history, and it shows. ISAIAH’S LEGACY is filled with sorcery, and other haunting, evil things, probably realistic, and thus hard to read.
    The wicked darkness and constant references to lustful physical intimacy made this a book I can’t recommend. But don’t take my word for it!  If you like Biblical fiction and Mesu Andrews, you might love this book. Check it out for yourself!
