Petra: City of Stone by T L Higley with giveaways


Petra, the wondrous ancient city carved from the mountains of modern Jordan, is at the height of its glory in this gripping historical novel by T. L. Higley.

A young widow, Cassia, and her son, Alexander, have arrived there seeking protection with her late husband's estranged family. But when Cassia discovers the man she married was heir to the throne, the power-hungry Queen Hagiru plots to murder Alexander so that her own child will someday rule. The queen, priestess of the sun-god, Dushrat, calls on demonic powers in her quest, but Cassia is prepared for the fierce spiritual battle to save her son, joining a Roman named Julian and his community of believers in the Jewish Messiah.

Together they seek a mighty movement of God far stronger than any dark heart or city made of stone.

My take:~

Tracy Higley's exceptional talent for detailed research and fascinating storytelling are both on display in her latest tale, Petra: City of Stone. Taking a break from her brilliant Seven Wonders series, Petra launches her Lost Cities series which will also encompass the cities of Pompeii and Babylon. Combining adventure, suspense, romance and faith, the story of Cassia and Julian is entertaining and thought provoking in equal measure. Be prepared to smell the dust and feel the cool stone walls of this ancient city as Tracy immerses you in political intrigue, pagan ritual and the power of God's presence. Julian, Cassia and Malik are characters that will touch your heart and move your spirit as they face fears, confront malevolent evil and respond to the love of Jesus. Ancient history has no better advocate than Tracy Higley and I cannot recommend her books highly enough!
