    Fabulous!!!!!

    Uvi Poznansky combined her superb knowledge of Biblical history and her amazing sense of humor to create David’s story. In Rise to Power, David is looking back on his life and telling not only his story, but how he thought and felt at the time. It is told in first person and from his perspective, which has a modern flair similar to some of the author’s other work – A Favorite Son and Twisted for example. With David at the center during a time of war and constant upheaval for the people, his story, as told through Poznansky, made me laugh out loud more times than I could count. Rise to Power in many ways, makes sense of some of the difficult to understand and nonlinear parts of the Bible, and it was so enjoyable to read that I am reading it again (aloud to my husband) and anxiously awaiting the next book of this series. I really loved it – Five Stars! Sherri Christian

    Literary poetic writing

    This is the kind of literary and poetic writing that is a pleasure to read. Rise to Power (The David Chronicles Book 1) by Uvi Poznansky takes us into the the story of David from a fresh perspective. We see through David’s eyes as the author attempts, quite competently, to allow him to share his thoughts, feelings and motivations. It gives us new insight into this great story. It’s exciting to learn details and discover the real drama of the events. I love the author’s writing style. The following excerpts give a hint of that, and the drama running through the entire book “So why turn into a fighter, all of a sudden? Beware of yourself. Beware of hasty moves in the wrong direction. War is a bloody game. Not for you!” “…Because I am desperate. My path to power has been blocked. Yet this I know: If the king’s throne topples, even a commoner can reach for the crown.” A lovely work by a gifted writer who should be read by a wider audience. Highly recommended. Five stars.

    Rise to power, the David Chronicles #1

    How does David see himself? His ambition, his strife to become king. Uvi Poznanaky had outdone herself. Brilliantly written, in the eyes of David. She is drawing us into its depths of his life. His thinking, his fears, his perspective to life, his ambition and gaining to power to become king. David was facing lots of dangers, like killing the Philistine Goliath, or even running away from Kind Soul, as he wants him dead. David could have killed him any time, but he, David refused to do so. Soul was anointed by God. And when Soul died in battle with the Philistines, David was devastated. I thought that was very good, as David said to his servant: “The purpose of all this was for me to realize my future and the future of my House. The House of David in the years and generation to come." Whether you are religious or not, you will enjoy this story about David, told in such a way, as if it just happen now, just another story. But is it? David, from a shepherds boy to a musician to sooth king Soul’s soul, until he himself becomes king. Brilliantly narrated
