Isaiah's Legacy (Prophets and Kings #3) by Mesu Andrews Reviewed

About the book:

Title: Isaiah's Legacy
Author: Mesu Andrews
Series: Prophets and Kings BK 3
Publisher: Waterbrook Press

At eight years old, Shulle has known only life in a small village with her loving but peculiar father. When Uncle Shebna offers shelter in Jerusalem in exchange for Shulle's help tutoring King Manasseh, Judah's five-year-old co-regent who displays the same peculiarities as her father, she's eager to experience the royal court. But Shulle soon realizes the limits of her father's strict adherence to Yahweh's Law when Uncle Shebna teaches her of the starry hosts and their power.

Convinced Judah must be freed from Yahweh's chains, she begins the subtle swaying of young Manasseh, using her charm and skills on the boy no one else understands. When King Hezekiah dies, twelve-year-old Manasseh is thrust onto Judah's throne, bitter at Yahweh and eager to marry the girl he adores. Assyria's crown prince favors Manasseh and twists his brilliant mind toward cruelty, beginning Shulle's long and harrowing journey to discover the Yahweh she'd never known, guided with loving wisdom by Manasseh's mother: Isaiah's daughter, the heartbroken Hephzibah. Amid Judah's dark days, a desperate remnant emerges, claiming the Lord's promise, "Though we're helpless now, we're never hopeless--because we serve El Shaddai." Shulle is among them, a girl who becomes a queen through Isaiah's legacy.

My Thoughts:
I've been a fan of Mesu Andrews biblical fiction stories since I read Love Amid the Ashes in 2011.                                                                                                                                  
With her impeccable research Mesu Andrews brings the scripture to life. So much so you can feel the emotions and see the setting as if you were sitting in Judah watching everything take place.
As with all biblical fiction I walk away learning something. I didn’t know much about Manasseh prior to reading this book. I liked that Ms. Andrews took creative license with Manasseh giving him autism. It added a unique twist.

This book is a definite must read for all biblical fiction fans!

Do you understand there is a 12 word sentence you can speak to your man... that will trigger deep feelings of love and impulsive attractiveness for you deep within his chest?

That's because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's impulse to love, admire and guard you with his entire heart...

12 Words Who Fuel A Man's Love Instinct

This impulse is so built-in to a man's brain that it will make him work harder than ever before to love and admire you.

Matter of fact, triggering this all-powerful impulse is absolutely important to achieving the best ever relationship with your man that as soon as you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

...You will soon find him expose his soul and heart for you in a way he haven't expressed before and he will perceive you as the one and only woman in the universe who has ever truly fascinated him.
