Solomon’s Bride – Book Review
When you were a little girl, did you ever dream of being a princess in a distant time and place? Did you wonder what life would be like if you lived in a beautiful palace, surrounded by servants who catered to your every whim? Did you crave for adventures in a land far, far away?
Rebecca Hazell must have imagined those things, because she has written a highly imaginative historical trilogy called The Tiger And The Dove which weaves a story of what life was like for one princess who lived long ago – but trust me, the series is not for the faint of heart!
Rebecca’s newly released book, Solomon’s Bride, is Book 2 in the Tiger And The Dove series and continues the story and adventures of Princess Sofia of the Kievan Rus, who we were introduced to in Book 1 in the series, The Grip Of God. For this series, you really do want to read these books in order to fully get a sense of who Sofia is – where she has come from – and what she has endured so that you can appreciate how the events in her life are transforming her into the woman she is becoming.
In Book 1, we meet a spoiled, 12-year-old princess who is torn from the pampered and privileged life she has known only to be captured by a savage group known as the Mongols. In Book 2, Solomon’s Bride, we cheer as Sofia escapes to freedom, but her freedom is short-lived. Soon, Sofia finds herself deeply entrenched in the world of the Assassins as a fugitive with a price on her head – and prisoner to the Grand Master himself.
Solomon’s Bride is a worthy sequel to The Grip Of God – one full of rich detail that transports us to a world where few authors and readers have traversed.
You’ll have to wait until Book 3 of the trilogy – Consolamentum – to see if Sofia ever has the happily ever ending that most princesses dream of.
