For me, it felt very much like Ted Dekker's AD 30 novel and so it was challenging for me to not think of that book as I had read it first. But Lee has a gift at storytelling and creating characters you can't stop thinking about.
Lee's Sheba has a difficult childhood and it doesn't quite get much better leading her to question pretty much everything about her life. It's fantastic how these characters are from so long ago and far away yet, Lee sets them to resonate with her audience.
You'll get a good dose of love, politics, "chess-playing" in every aspect of life and that creates the depth.
Like she has done with a demon and with Eve, Lee takes a character from a fleeting moment in history and casts a spellbinding web in which you can't escape until the last page.
