Booklist: "A tale of passion, loss and fated retribution... a well-crafted novel." David's rise to power beckons Tamar's mother to leave her temple, her priestess tradition and her first marriage to join the king's growing harem. Traveling with her, young Tamar gains the ancient gift of hearing the whispers of sacred serpents, the will of the Goddess. The conflict between her Goddess and David's single God grows into a battle for the holy land, for succession, for souls, for love. For life itself. Publisher's Weekly: "Engrossing... The characters are brought vividly to life."
