Rage mixes with the intimacy of love and desire in this awe-inspiring, carefully crafted reproduction of an ancient, glorious, and brutal world. The Throne in the Heart of the Sea is the first novel of a trilogy on Jezebel.
In the Middle East of the 9th century BC, King Ittobaal of Tyre is building a vast maritime empire. His daughter Jezebel believes the gods intend for her to rule after him. Tamar, lesbian daughter of a poor fisherman, longs to be a scribe. Elijah, an Israelite farmboy, swears bitter vengeance against the king who caused his father’s death. Driven by their passions—sexual, political, and spiritual—they tangle and fly apart, again and again. Martha Shelley takes you deep into their world, a world as real as your own. This is what was, and what might have been.
