‘The Garden of Madness’ is a fantastical, mysterious and romantic retelling of the Biblical story in the Book of Daniels about the crazy King Nebuchadnezzar’s of Babylon. This story revolves around the crazy king’s daughter. There’s nothing not to like about this book, and I probably enjoyed this fiction as much as the retelling of the Biblical Queen Esther or Persia.

Highly intriguing and vivid, and left almost nothing to the imagination. I absolutely love this story, and I have to say that I admired the strengh and the courage of the heroine in this story.

Kudos to the author for such a wonderful masterpiece. I enjoyed this book very much and highly recommends this book to those who love Biblical retellings or stories that involves the characters in the Bible.

I rate this book 5 star.

This book was just ho-hum for me. This story line has been done so many times. The only thing that the author did was put it in Babylonian times. I found Tia to be extremely annoying. Also I found her to be a little bit too modern. The belief structure of that time period is so different than it is today. I think that all ancient kings believed that they were divinity on earth. Certain attitudes and mentalities would have been taught since birth. I just don't see how a princess would have been into things like exercise and keeping fit. It was just far too unrealistic.
