Power, or the lack of it can sometimes send us in directions that we might not have taken otherwise. Especially when you are a woman living in a culture that sees you as chattel.
In the new book The Judgement by D.J. Niko,Nicaule is the daughter of the Egyptian Pharaoh. Though she loves one man, she is given in marriage to King Solomon, the new young King of Israel. It is love at first sight for Solomon. Blind to many things, including his wife’s anger, she will be one of the factors that tarnishes what once was a brilliant future.
I wanted to like this book, I really did. The concept of the narrative drew me in. Unfortunately my enthusiasm ended there. I finished the book, but it was not easy to finish.
Do I recommend it? No.
