About the Series: The Captivity Series
The five books in the Captivity Series originate from the stories in the biblical book of Daniel. Though they are fiction the story revolves around the Hebrew’s capture and resultant new life in Babylon during the sixth century BC. The main characters are recurring in several of the books, but Daniel is the focus as we follow his life from this youth till his victory in the events of his old age in the lion’s den. You’ll love the battle for Jerusalem, the walk to Babylon, the young men and family adjusting to their home in big city, their maturity as they grow into men and the eventual power of Daniel as his wisdom becomes vital to the captures and kings. Enjoy the read of The Summer is Ended, Rivers of Babylon, Revealer of Secrets, Image of Gold and the Power of Lions.

Review by: Mary Boyd on Aug. 02, 2012 :
I applaud her idea. She appears to have done considerable research on the layout of the land. Some scenes are very vivid and the book does have tension, however her writing style is rife with passive voice, telling rather than showing, and author intrusion. I'm giving 3 stars just because the idea of this 5 book series is so excellent.
