"The outstanding narration of Suzanne Toren and the skillful writing of Lynn Austin combine to bring to life the story of the Old Testament's King Manasseh. Terror reigns in Jerusalem as Manasseh seeks to destroy everyone he suspects of seeking to take his life or his throne. Turning his back on the God of his fathers, he takes up idol worship and human sacrifice. His boyhood friend, Joshua, flees for his life and questions his own faith as he observes the murders of the prophet Isaiah and his own father, Eliakim. Intrigue and romance captivate the listener. Toren so clearly defines each character that one would think many narrators were involved. This powerful and absorbing story in audiobook format is too good to miss! N.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
