CFBA Tour Dark Hour by Ginger Garrett

From the back cover...

God promised the Serpent a war with Woman,
and was She ever ready.
One of the darkest and bloodiest stories of all time comes not from a medieval battlefield, but from inside one of the most opulent palaces ever built. The strategies come not from men eager to extend their influence, but from women bent on exercising their wit and prowess in a kingdom not their own. The only rule is that there are no rules. Treason and murder are fair game, marriage is meaningless, children are the enemy, and the days of the house of David are numbered. Unless one woman can find the strength to defeat them all.
Dark Hour by Ginger Garrett is based on the story told in 2 Chronicles 21-23. It is an up close look at what it was like to be of the line of David during this time. Jezebel was going all out trying to eliminate anyone them. She wanted to stop all the rumors of a savior. And the rumors were tied to a descendant of David.
This was a very violent time in history. Parts of the novel are shocking for those of us who have lived all of our lives in the United States. Upon reading this, you might think that this is a depressing book. Readers of Dark Hour will be rewarded with an inspiring novel that they will not forget. It will make you pause and think about what you are reading the next time you read from the Old Testament.
