Summary

Ten years ago Lukio fled Kiryat-Yearim, where he'd been adopted by the Levite family who guarded the Ark of the Covenant. Feeling betrayed by everyone, he returned to his birthplace in Philistia to become a famous fighter. Now the champion of Ashdod, Lukio has achieved every goal with the help of his ruthless cousin. But just as he is set to claim the biggest prize of all, the daughter of the king, his past collides with his present in the form of Shoshana.  

After a heartbreaking end to her secret friendship with Lukio, Shoshana thought to never see the boy with the dual-colored eyes and the troubled soul again. But when she is captured in a Philistine raid and enslaved in Ashdod, she is surprised to find that the brutal fighter known as Demon-Eyes is Lukio himself.   

With explosive secrets and unbreakable vows standing between them, finding a way to freedom for both may cost them everything.

The Reunions Are Breathtaking

Jonathan Todd Ross should definitely be a repeat narrator. Zevi's story would be a great addition to this series and I can almost "hear" him reading it.

Lukio/Natan makes it all the way back to Ashdod to become it's champion entertainment fighter. Just as he hits the absolute peak of his goals in Philistia, Shoshana, the love of his youth, is revealed to be there, a slave in the house of the embittered King Nicaro and to his betrothed, Nicaro's daughter Mariada. If you've never understood IsraEl's path from the death of Samson to becoming keepers of the Ark of the Covenant, this book makes that much more clear. The reunions are breathtaking!! Can't wait for the next one!!

Wonderful and unforgettable

This was indeed an incredible book. The historical and biblical setting was amazingly well done and based on many true situations (and even characters) found in Scripture. The individual characters literally came to life on the page, both good and bad. The history and depth of the relationship between Shoshana and Lukio was beautiful and yet at times heart rending. It was difficult to know how many of the situations and relationships within the story would end… Some heartbreaking and others beautiful. I loved to see the obvious hand of God at numerous times throughout the story, especially as Lukio comes to believe. I highly highly recommend this book!

Wild Branches

I enjoyed the historical story of the philistines and the Hebrews, even though it was fiction. This is light and easy, entertaining summer reading at its best. No profanity or lewdness and private matters remained private. Many thanks to the author!

Love this series

I love these stories and love that they give me a window into the history of the Bible. They are so good. My only complaint is the female narrator is so good, and the male narrator is just ok. Compared to her it’s just not very good. But it’s still amazing!
