Publisher's Description

Beyond the Drama, Her Heart Was Real

From the moment her marriage to prince Ahab thrusts her into the intrigues of palace life, Jezebel’s exotic beauty opens doors and her will breaks down walls. Torn from her homeland and wed to power in a strange country, Jezebel vows to create a legacy and power all her own. Some might call her a manipulative schemer, bent on having her way. But they don’t know the whole story, and she was much, much worse.
 
As she moves through the halls of power, her heart struggles between devotion to the gods she worships, the prince who loves her, and her thirst for revenge. She sparks a battle between her strangely powerless gods and the God of palace administrator Obadiah—a God who confronts her with surprising might. She will fight, though victory may cost her everything.

    The books has a very dark feel to it and the details are very sexual in nature and I was not into it at all. In fact I felt like a big ol' sinner reading it. I like this author, not this book. I only read 6 chapters before I stopped

    Beyond the Drama, Her Heart Was Real.

    From the moment her marriage to prince Ahab thrusts her into the intrigues of palace life, Jezebel's exotic beauty opens doors and her will breaks down walls. Torn from her homeland and wed to power in a strange country, Jezebel vows to create a legacy and power all her own. Some might call her a manipulative schemer, bent on having her way.

    My Review:

    Jezebel is a woman that will forever live in infamy. While we don't talk a lot about the men in her life, we know for a fact that she caused them a lot of grief. She is well known for her wickedness, and she has become a legend because of her actions. But underneath all the notoriety and disgrace that come with her name, Jezebel was as a real as person as you and I. Given to a marriage in a strange land, she was destined to become more than just a name in the past, but a woman of power, wickedness, and evil.

    One of my favorite things about Biblical fiction is the depiction of the times. Too many times the truth of the past is sugar coated because it's too graphic, too descriptive, and too detailed in it's representation. I, for one, enjoy all the details, because it just brings to light how deep God's mercy really is, and how He has forgiven His people over and over again throughout the centuries. Actions bring consequences, but until we fully understand the sin, we cannot adequately see how unfathomable the mercy of God extends. Garrett beautifully tells the story of Jezebel, fleshes her out as a real person, and gives us an honest look at what life was in the courts of King Ahab. She brings Jezebel down to human terms, and gives us an understanding of the times and the people with a gifted and masterful pen.

    I have always admired authors of good Biblical fiction because it makes those long and winding passages in the Old Testament come to life for me. Ginger Garrett's book, Reign: The Chronicles of Queen Jezebel, did not disappoint.

    Even though I have read the story of Queen Jezebel in I and II Kings, Miss Garrett's fictionalized account, based on extensive research, put me inside the stubborn mind and hardened heart of this Biblical character. I could feel Jezebel's anger, resentment, and resistance to the power of the one true God as she struggles to emulate the gods she worships. Likewise, Ahab's battle between his irreverent wife and the dedication to his God is well displayed.

    Vivid descriptions of the ancient rituals practiced in Bible times are sometimes violent and graphic, but I have no doubt they are also realistic.

    I would recommend this book to any reader who likes to travel back in time to the tumultuous and rebellious days of existence in ancient Israel.

    I love all of Ginger Garrett's books. She does an excellent job of transporting her readers, making them feel as if they are taking part in the tale as it unfolds. Jezebel's story proves there really is nothing new under the sun. The gods her culture worshipped are still being worshipped today, they just have new aliases. Jezebel is definitely the villainess you love to hate. If you haven't already read "Dark Hour", order it to read right after this one. You won't be sorry!

    This is a well written historical version of the story of Jezebel in the Bible. Ginger Garrett clearly spent a lot of time researching this subject. Her writing style is excellent, making an extremely thought provoking story. The sacrifices and other practices of Jezebel and her people are disturbing and sickening, but that is the point, that is the life she knew and lived. She lived in an evil and perverted society. It actually helps you understand why she was who she was. Your heart breaks for the child she was, and the thought that if she would have only known God then, she would have been a different person. On the other hand, you can not like the person she becomes, she is evil. It shocked and horrified me to think people could live such a way and do things that they did.

    This story not only shares insight of Jezebel, but paints a vivid picture of Ahab and Obadiah as well. Ms. Garrett is an excellent writer and she kept me interested throughout the entire book. I immediately followed up by revisiting the Biblical account. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction, but suggest reading the story in the Bible as well.

    This book was given to me by David C. Cook through Bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
