In Gods and Kings, Christy Award winner and bestselling author Lynn Austin pens a fascinating historical novel based on actual Biblical events.

Shortly after the death of King Solomon in 931 BC, the promised land is divided into two separate nations: Israel in the north and Judah in the south. Hezekiah is the second son of King Ahaz of Judah and heir to the throne. When his evil father plots to sacrifice him, Hezekiah’s mother, Abijah, searches frantically for a way to save him. But only two men can help her, and neither of them seems trustworthy. In a time and place engulfed by violence, treachery, and infidelity to Yahweh, Abijah and her son must discover the one true source of strength if they are to save themselves and their country.

    " I love this series of 5 historical fiction reads dealing with King Hezekiah and his son Manassah. Lynn Austin weaves a great epic story from the Biblical scriptures making it personal. The first book was a little bit slow to get into, but oh my, once you grasp on to the story, you will not want to quit till you finish the whole set from one thru five books. "
