“An epic masterpiece.”
“Another winner by Lee.”
There is the story you know: A foreign queen, journeying north with a caravan of riches to pay tribute to a king favored by God. The tale of a queen conquered by a king. That is the tale you were meant to believe. Which means most of it is a lie.
In the tenth century BC, the young Queen of Sheba has inherited her father’s throne and all its riches. But now new alliances to the North threaten the trade routes that are the lifeblood of her nation. Solomon, the brash new king of Israel famous for his wealth and wisdom, will not be denied the tribute of the world—or of Sheba’s queen. With the future of her nation at stake, the new queen undertakes the journey of a lifetime in a daring bid to challenge the king. But neither ruler has anticipated the clash of agendas, gods, and passion that threatens to ignite—and ruin—them both. An explosive retelling of the legendary king and queen and the nations that shaped history.
