The Road to Royalty - When the destiny of the good threatens a dynasty of evil. An arrogant egocentric king spirals Israel into spiritual defiance and political chaos.

Amid the unrest a Greek trader chases prosperity as bronze gives way to the Iron Age. He befriends an idealistic young priest and teaches him the first forms of linear writing. Together the two men witness one of the most prolific adventures of the ancient world.

As a young boy David saves Israel from slavery. The king nurses him through the ranks of his army, breeding a fearless warlord whom Israel elevates to hero status. Jealousy grips the king as David is a threat to his throne and hate drives him to plot his death. David is betrothed to the king’s daughter but their fairytale romance is tainted with blood and woven with deceit as her father manipulates circumstance. Exposed, their lives are threatened in a sequence of gripping events that plot the road they are made to endure before David is anointed to reign as Royalty.

Love, Honor, Trust

In a world where the evil of a dynasty freely unleashes the wickedness of its king, love rises above circumstance, honor above deceit, and trust is the adrenalin that runs through this heroic tale of how a shepherd boy became a king.
