    Reign The Chronicles of Queen Jezebel by Ginger Garrett is a fic

    Reign The Chronicles of Queen Jezebel by Ginger Garrett is a fictional account of Ahab and Jezebel taken from I Kings and II Kings in the Bible. In the Bible, Jezebel was described as a very wicked woman but the author’s imagination just became too much for me. Biblical fiction is one of my favorite genre but I just could not get into this book, in fact I was not able to finish it. I was really looking forward to reading the book but it was a disappointment for all the sacrificing of babies and the vivid descriptions of the worship of Baal just became too depressing for me to continue reading.




    I read over half the book and I will say that it was well written with the plot and characters being well developed. Just too well developed for my taste. It was obvious that the author did a lot of research before writing the book. I have read the story of Jezebel many times in the Bible and I know how the story ended.




    If one is not bothered by reading about infant sacrifices and the sexual perversion of the temple priests, then I could recommend this book.




    I received a complimentary copy of this book from David C. Cook at Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Reign was nothing I expected and I was very disappointed that I

    Reign was nothing I expected and I was very disappointed that I could not get into this book as much as I wanted too!

    I had been looking forward to this book as soon as I heard about it, but sadly I was unable to finish it. I am unsure how much of Jezebel's story was historically accurate, but it was too dark and morbid for me. I understand that the Phoenician culture did sacrifice infants, but it was too much for me when Jezebel tried to kill her own child because she hated it so much. Once I got to that part it did me in and I will not finish it. I know that women do abort their children, but I do not want to read a novel of a women who hated her body so much and the human growing in her that she would do almost anything to destroy it.

    The story overall was interesting based on what I had read, but again it was too dark and morbid for me to keep reading with the infant sacrificing. I know there was this kind of sacrificing during this time, but it overwhelmed me and left me too depressed about it for me to read the second half of the book.

    Some people might truly enjoy the story line and will not be effected by the description of infant sacrificing and temple worshiping through sexual means, but unfortunately I did not.

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
