Blog Tour - The Moses Chronicles: Bondage Review and Giveaway



About the book: Moses has always felt like an outsider in his powerful Egyptian family, even though his close relationship with Ramses, the prince of Egypt, and their cousin Pentu keeps him entwined in the dealings of royalty. But when their youthful antics get them in trouble, the Pharaoh decides it’s time for all three of them to grow up and own their respective responsibilities. Now betrothed to a woman he cares nothing for, Moses wonders where his life is headed.

Miriam, a Hebrew slave, lives with a secret she cannot share with anyone. And though it has been eighteen years since she saved her baby brother, she is constantly getting in trouble for spying on him. In a desperate attempt to control Miriam, her older brother, Aaron, and her father look to find her a husband, something Miriam has never been interested in—until Caleb, a young, handsome man, confesses his feelings for her and asks her father for her hand in marriage.

When Libya advances on Egypt, Moses and Miriam are suddenly thrown together as the Egyptian royals and soldiers flee. Hebrew slaves are forced to defend the kingdom, and Miriam and Caleb are enlisted under Moses’s direction. Moses quickly sees there is more to this downtrodden people than what he’s been taught. When he witnesses the atrocities enacted against the slaves, he realizes he must leave—he must find out who he really is.

A gripping account of the events that lead to Moses’s flight into the wilderness, The Moses Chronicles: Bondage will take you back to a rich period of history replete with scandal, strife, love, and hope as God prepares a prophet to lead His chosen people.

My review: H B Moore is amazing at writing historical fiction! I LOVE the way she's able to make Bible characters seem 3 dimensional, they almost seem to jump off the pages of her books and walk through your home. This book was no exception to that. I loved that Moses and Miriam are kind of co-main characters, so you get to see what's happening through both of their eyes. Miriam was a great character! I know that this is a fictionalized account, but for me, she really turned into not just a character from the Bible, but a real person who had trials and triumphs. I loved the way that Miriam was watching over Moses, even though he was all grown, even though she knew that it could eventually get her into trouble.

I loved that I felt as though I was in the dry desert of Egypt, this book really transported me! The plot was great, fast paced and I didn't get bored with it at all. I loved that there was just a bit of romance in this book too. Now...when is volume 2 coming????

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
