The untold story of King Nebuchadnezzars daughter
For seven years the Babylonian princess Tiamat has waited for the mad king Nebuchadnezzar to return to his family and to his kingdom. Driven from his throne to live as a beast, he prowls his luxurious Hanging Gardens, secreted away from the world.
Since her treaty marriage at a young age, Tia has lived an opulent yet oppressive life in the palace. But her husband has since died and she relishes her newfound independence. When a nobleman is found murdered in the palace, Tia must discover who is responsible for the macabre death, even if her own freedom is threatened.
As the queen plans to wed Tia to yet another prince, the powerful mage Shadir plots to expose the familys secret and set his own man on the throne. Tia enlists the help of a reluctant Jewish captive, her late husbands brother Pedaiah, who challenges her notions of the gods even as he opens her heart to both truth and love.
In a time when few gave their hearts to Yahweh, Tia must decide if she is willing to risk everythingher possessions, her gods, and her very lifefor the Israelites one God. Madness, sorcery, and sinister plots mingle like an alchemists deadly potion as Tia chooses whether to risk all to save the kingdomand her family.

The biblical story of Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzars seven years as a madman, found in the Old Testament Book of Daniel, deepens and broadens thanks to veteran author Higleys historical research and vivid imagination. Tiamat, daughter of the mad king, finds herself at the center of palace intrigue when her husband, son of the imprisoned Israelite king, dies. Her mother wants her to wed a Median prince to preserve her family; the powerful mage Shadir intends her to marry his protégé, Amel-Marduk; Tiamat wants neither, torn between her desire for freedom and her feelings for Pedaiah, her late husbands brother. Secrets pile upon secrets and danger lurks everywhere as Tiamat searches for answers. She must decide between the evil gods of her youth and the true God who promises peace and love, but may require that she give up the life she knows. Readers will find much to enjoy here: fine writing, suspense, mystery, faith, love, and a new look at an old story. Agent, Steve Laube (May)2012 Reed Business Information
