Her name is legend. Her story, the epic of nations. The
Queen of Sheba. A powerful new novel of love, power, and the
questions at the heart of existence by the author of the
award-winning “brilliant” (Library Journal) and
“masterful” (Publishers Weekly) Iscariot.
There is the story you know: A foreign queen, journeying
north with a caravan of riches to pay tribute to a king
favored by the One God. The tale of a queen conquered by a
king and god both before returning to her own land laden
with gifts. That is the tale you were meant to
believe. Which means most of it is a lie.
In the tenth century BC, the new Queen of Sheba has
inherited her father’s throne and all its riches at great
personal cost. Her realm stretches west across the Red Sea
into land wealthy in gold, frankincense, and spices. But now
new alliances to the North threaten the trade routes that
are the lifeblood of her nation. Solomon, the brash new king
of Israel famous for his wealth and wisdom, will not be
denied the tribute of the world—or of Sheba’s queen. With
tensions ready to erupt within her own borders and the
future of her nation at stake, the one woman who can match
wits with Solomon undertakes the journey of a lifetime in a
daring bid to test and win the king. But neither ruler has
anticipated the clash of agendas, gods, and passion that
threatens to ignite—and ruin—them both. An explosive
retelling of the legendary king and queen and the nations
that shaped history.
