The Queen's Handmaid
This was a very good book filled with political intrigue, historical characters, and a spiritual theme leading to The Messiah. The plot was very engaging, albeit quite dark in places. I really enjoyed the historical setting. It was very fascinating reading about the tumultuous time leading up to the birth of our Savior. I also loved the fictional elements of the story; the characters, especially the characters Lydia, were very well depicted. If you enjoy historical/Biblical fiction, I would absolutely recommend this book. Just a word of warning, due to the darkness of the times depicted and the despotic nature of the rulers involved, this book is best suited for ages 17 and up.
I received a free e-copy of this book through Book Look Bloggers in exchange for my honest review
