I received a complementary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through their BookSneeze program. I enjoyed this story. It is based on the biblical story of Esther. It is fun to see how the author imagined the story. There were some parts that seemed a little to contrived to me, but overall it was a fun read. The author talks about the love between the king and queen, but I don't feel that she shows that love developing. She just tells us that it is there. The characters are enjoyable. I would give it 3/5 stars.
