As the saga continues, will Deborah finally fulfill her personal wish to be a man? And will it impact her true calling?
Deborah has overcome loss, hardship, and physical labor to seek out the elixirist and become a man. After finally locating him at a tannery, she agrees to work for him will he prepares all of the doses of the male elixir. Now that she has completed the first two doses, she is ready for the final task. But first they must return to Edom to retrieve the final ingredients. On the way, they must pass through her hometown and collect Kassite’s old friend that runs the basket factory for the judge. This trip proves to be even more deadly than Deborah could have considered. Will anyone recognize her? If they do, will her quest be over? And what of her true calling as one of Yahweh’s prophets?
This book picks up directly where the first book ended. And the excitement picks up even more. After being pursed throughout much of the first book, Deborah must now face some of her past demons. Her remarkable character shines throughout this book as does the enjoyable banter between her and Kassite. What happens will surprise many readers as it is not expected, but with more twists also come more turns. I keep thinking that the story will be over and it will be where it is picked up in the bible, but it just keeps on continuing. I’m not sure which direction it will go next, but you can bet I’ll be reading it!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
