‘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. I received an ARC of this book from Thomas Nelson and I was not compensated in any ways for writing this review.
The Untold Story of King Nebuchadnezzar’s Daughter.
For seven years the Babylonian princess Tiamat has waited for the mad king Nebuchadnezzar to return to his family and to his kingdom. Driven from his throne to live as a beast, he prowls his luxurious Hanging Gardens, secreted away from the world.
Since her treaty marriage at a young age, Tia has lived an indulgent palace life. But when her husband dies and a nobleman is found murdered in the palace, Tia must discover who is responsible for the macabre death, even if her own newfound freedom is threatened.
As the queen plans to wed Tia to yet another prince, the powerful mage Shadir plots to expose the family’s secret and set his own man on the throne. Tia enlists the help of a reluctant Jewish captive, her late husband’s brother Pedaiah, who challenges her notions of the gods even as he opens her heart to both truth and love.
