    A fitting finale to the David Chronicles

    In Book three of the David Chronicles, Uvi Poznansky continues to deliver first class character development with her first-person story telling. “The Edge of Revolt” follows King David into his old age. Uvi puts us there. We discover the cracks in the king's character, apparent to those in his court, yet denied by his regal vanity until at last the King sees the truth in the shattered lives of his progeny—his murderous and dishonorable sons, and Tamar, his ravished and dishonored daughter—all victims in David's eyes of his shortcomings. As in the first two books in the trilogy, Uvi performs masterful story telling by mining between the lines of the biblical renditions. There she finds nuggets of what-if revelation about who this David of yore really was. Again, she puts us there, this time by sprinkling the narrative and dialogue with characterizations and idioms right out of the Twenty-First Century: “Dad,” she has Solomon ask David, “are you cold?” And from her narraative—“. . . I am a king, and a king I shall remain till my last breath. “Out with the old, in with the new?” Not to be outdone by the biblical poet, Uvi has her own ways of evoking emotion and eloquence: “Back in the palace, where we used to walk on the softest of rugs, our soles have softened. Spoiled by luxury, so have our souls. To survive this winter in the wilderness, body and spirit must harden. Can we do it? God knows.” Or “... everyone knows that when Joav comes too close, as if to hug you or whisper a dirty joke in your ear, the next thing you know is a stab under the fifth rib.” Or “To remind him of the words uttered by Abner, the general he stabbed to death years ago, I ask, 'should the sword devour forever?'” How like David; how like Uvi in portraying him. Enough. If you haven't read the first two books in the trilogy, put them by your nightstand. When you are finished with them, you won't be satisfied until you've turned the last page of “The Edge of Revolt.”

    Masterful

    Written in the voice of the king, The Edge of Revolt (The David Chronicles Book 3) by Uvi Poznansky is a masterfully told story. The author somehow paints her words with an authenticity of biblical times that immerses the reader into the book’s world. Sometimes I pull a line from a book that speaks to me or affects me. This one made me breathe the air. “Hours later . . . I find myself free to ride out there, a magical mist hangs all around me, like tears, suspended.” The entire trilogy is a breathtaking work of historical fiction and a character study of a fascinating man. Highly recommended. Five stars.

    The edge of Revolt, the David Chronicle #3

    An outstanding description of the biblical event about King David's rain. Even thought I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. Your rod and your staff they comfort me.
