Blueridge Beauty Blogger: Game of Queens Book Review

(Source: Google Images)


Within a week's time, I have finished this historical novel which sweep my mind away to Ancient Persian and Babylon empires concerning the famous (or infamous, according who told the story) of Queen Vashti and Queen Esther!! The author, India Edghill, introduce the reader to go behind the Biblical story (or palace gossip) about the private lives of these two queens that shaped the heart of the King of Kings of Persia, their inner and often secluded woman circles, and the entire empire!  I love how each person tells their version based on their first hand accounts of these two famous Queens in Jewish and Christian faiths! Daniel Dream Master, Hegai the Chief Palace Eunuch, Vashi, and Esther all tell  their version of the story in this historical novel.The details and how this novel is written transform your imagination and senses to living in the Royal Palace!! I highly recommend reading "Game of Queens" for a great weekend or evening reading!! Perfect for book club discussion as well!

Until next time....
