It is most definitely a fascinating historical novel; with vivid scenes, asking to be made into a movie. Nevertheless, when I finished reading it, I was glad that I live in 21th century.

There are times when we know how the story will end, yet our attention remains riveted on the magic of the journey. This is just such a story. Most of us heard about David, the future king of Israel, who, in his youth, slew the giant named Goliath, to save Israel from the overwhelming heathen hoards.
Alistair Forrest mixes meticulous research of Biblical sources with poetry and unbridled imagination in the cauldron of fast moving narrative, to hold our attention throughout this mastery fragment of ancient history. Images of Israel, of ancient times and customs come alive, the heathen and the faithful walk amongst us, the desert wind blows in our faces. Anyone who read the Old Testament will enjoy this book; and anyone who enjoys this book is bound to reach out and dive into the OT itself. Well done, Alistair. I’m sure we’re all hoping to see more history through your eyes.
