Synopsis

In the first volume of a momentous new crossover saga set in Jerusalem, a top-selling author team that dazzles with historical fiction in the tradition of James Michener

With more than 6.5 million books in print, Bodie and Brock Thoene have dominated the Christian fiction market for over a decade and struck a chord in the hearts of readers everywhere. Those readers--and the booksellers who track their tastes--have long clamored for a continuation of their blockbuster Zion Chronicles series: five vivid, sweeping historical novels depicting the 1948 birth of the state of Israel. Viking is pleased to meet that demand. In The Zion Legacy series, Jerusalem--today a city of bimillennial celebration--is once again the stage, this time for three millennia of its history detailed through a cast of historic characters.

Book One of The Zion Legacy series opens as the British are withdrawing from Jerusalem in 1948 and tells the enthralling and dramatic story of several richly drawn characters who are caught up in this momentous time in the world's most sacred city. The Zion Legacy series (with two new books to be published each year) is exquisitely timed for a readership hungry for superb storytelling, historical authenticity, and spiritual adventure of all kinds.

Also available as a Penguin Audiobook

The Thoenes' Christian message can sometimes be overstated: a mysterious Jesus figure appears disguised as an elderly gardener, and armies that oppose the Jews find themselves turned back by divinely whipped desert winds and angry hornets (per biblical promises to God's Chosen People).

Characters from the first novel return to fight for Jerusalem's Old City, and while they remain one-dimensional, the suspense builds as multiple cliff-hangers keep readers guessing about what they will do next and whether they will survive.
