I found Reign a fascinating story to read. It was a little confronting to walk in Jezebel's shoes as she became the princess and ultimately queen of Israel with her husband, Ahab. Her despicable and evil acts including idolatry, child sacrifices and killing the Lord's prophets are covered in the book. We gain an insight into her hatred of the prophet, Elijah, and her unquenchable desire for power. Ahab is stuck in the middle. He is unable to please his wife and the people who have remained faithful to the Israelite God. He allows Jezebel to encourage the Israelites to worship her foreign gods. Both Ahab and Jezebel suffer the consequences of God's wrath and judgment. We are given a fictional perspective on their dysfunctional marriage and family life, and plausible reasons to explain their life choices. I recommend this book to those looking for insightful and challenging Biblical fiction. Many thanks to NetGalley and David C. Cook for providing a review copy.
