For the sake of his new God and his loyalty to his friend Joshua, Caleb will not spend his twilight years resting, but taking the battle to the enemies of God's people until his dying breath. From his early days as a mercenary for Pharaoh in Egypt watching the Hebrews suffer under the yoke of slavery, all the way through a desperate fight with giants in the dark forests of the hill country, this is a story filled with epic battles, gritty intensity, and supernatural events that made Graham's Lion of War series a hit. Shadow of the Mountain is sure to ignite a love for the Old Testament in popular culture.

jacquiRIllinoisAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Shadow of the Mountain--ExodusJanuary 24, 2016jacquiRIllinoisAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Shadow of the Mountain (Exodus) is an imaginative account that creates a story, filling in what the Bible does not tell. Grahams story focuses on Caleb about whom little is known concerning his early years. The author vividly relates the events of Exodus, the wilderness wanderings, and conquests. This novel supplies a believable backstory for Caleba mercenary in Pharoahs Egypt who witnessed the Hebrews trials and sufferings and their deliverance by the great God, Yahweh.
The exciting battle action and graphic descriptive scenes of the plagues in Egypt bring history to life. The portrayal of Caleb is a satisfying interpretation of what might have been his life. Glimpses into palace life in Egypt, harsh military training in those times, and the Hebrews encampment lend authenticity to the story. I enjoyed this first book in the Shadow of the Mountain series and plan to check out the Lion of War series about King Davids Mighty Men. I recommend this novel that I received through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.
Liz RHayden, AlAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Ccaptivating Biblical FictionJanuary 10, 2016Liz RHayden, AlAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Biblical fiction has always been a personal favorite of mine. Some of the best stories Ive ever heard are Bible stories and are still influencing literature today. I personally feel, however, that some of the realness and grittiness of these stories is overlooked or intentionally toned down. Cliff Grahams Exodus was like a breath of fresh air. His writing was realistic, deliberate and engrossing. I was thoroughly captivated and cannot wait for the rest of the series.
I enjoyed the strong male voice with which Graham told his story. Narrated by an aging Caleb recounting his story to his nephew on the eve of a battle, it was exciting to imagine the life of a character that we really now so little about. With so little to go on it was evident that the author did his research and he masterfully wove together fact and fiction.
I am looking forward to meeting Joshua and seeing more of this story unfold. This author is new to me but, much to my excitement, he has another several other books already publisher about great warriors of the Bible that I plan to look into to. I would recommend this author to any that are fans of exciting biblical fiction that do not mind a little violence. There is nothing too gory but these were dangerous times and the writing stayed wonderfully true to that.

Britney Adams4 Stars Out Of 5Compelling!September 18, 2015Britney AdamsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Exodus is a very compelling story! Cliff Graham has shared an imaginative, fictional account of the life of Caleb. Steeped in vivid imagery and ancient history, this gripping tale kept me up late turning the pages. I was immediately drawn into Grahams story world and fascinated by all he shared. Please note: Battle scenes and other events in this book are graphically depicted.
Graham shares the following in his authors note, I have fictionalized those early years in the extreme. My purpose is not to invent an elaborate backstory because I felt the Bible was insufficient; it is to create a way for the reader to encounter the events of Exodus as the Egyptians themselves might have known them.
I enjoyed this encounter with the events of Exodus and look forward to forthcoming stories in the Shadow of the Mountain series!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. All thoughts expressed are my own.
Cindy J5 Stars Out Of 5Captivating fictional story of CalebAugust 10, 2015Cindy JQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Shadow of the Mountain: Exodus is a fictional portrayal of events in the life of Caleb, one of only two Israelites who left Egypt when over the age of 20 and actually entered the Promised Land after 40 years of wilderness wandering. In his Note to the Reader, author Cliff Graham acknowledges that he has taken a considerable amount of license as well as having taken the liberty of creating a backstory for Caleb. (7) Mr. Graham also reminds the reader that his book is a work of fiction. Please treat it as such. (8)
Calebs story is primarily told through events he relates to Othniel, his nephew, who has finally gathered the courage to ask questions regarding the Exodus and other portions of Calebs life. The book is well-written and action-packed. There are excellent, albeit occasionally graphic, descriptions. Although the book is a work of fiction, there are life lessons throughout. Caleb acknowledges the need for knowing how to fight various enemies, even when not currently at war with them. But one day you may find yourself on the plains grappling with the Sea People, and if you do, you must know how to fight them, for they are chariot masters of the first order. (90) Caleb also believes [a] man needs an allegiance. He must have a cause and an identity that lays claim over him and compels him to pick up a plow to cultivate it or a sword to defend it. (219) Caleb proved his bravery multiple times throughout the story yet acknowledges that [a] man can be brave and accomplish much, but his fate is only ever in the hand of Yahweh. (236) There isnt much information in the Bible about Caleb, and although we may wish we had more details about events in the Bible, God only inspired a certain amount to be written. At one point in Shadow of the Mountain: Exodus, Caleb asks Othniel to read from scripture (a scroll) about the plagues because I wish to hear it from the hand of Moses, for that is how Yahweh wanted it to be heard. (206)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Although it is a work of fiction, there is also truth that can be gleaned from its pages. I would definitely recommend it to those readers who do not have a weak stomach when reading graphic descriptions of war battles. The entire story penned by Mr. Graham was believable and captivating.
