Publisher's Summary

David loves his sons. The last thing he expects is that they will topple him from the throne. Who among them will remain by his side? Who will be not only loyal, but also eager to continue his legacy?
For now, David remains silent, even as Amnon rapes Tamar, even as Absalom lures Amnon to his death. In families other than his, such crimes may be concealed. But when they occur in the king's family, they affect matters of the state, and result in his escape from the son he adores. Will he find a way to quell the revolt and come back to the City of David?
This is book III of the trilogy The David Chronicles, told candidly by the king himself. David uses modern language, indicating that this is no fairy tale. Rather, it is a story that is happening here and now. If you like ancient historical fiction about court intrigue, this King David novel has a modern twist like no audiobook you have heard before.

The Life of Biblical King David comes to climax

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend this to everyone who has enjoyed audio-books such as I, the Sun, or The Sacred Band; to anyone in fact, who loves the ancient world and years for stories that bring those days to life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Edge of Revolt?

As David grows and ages, he is trapped into yet another wear, one in which he cannot protect his children nor, truly, the empire to which he's dedicated his life.

Have you listened to any of Bob Sterry’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Bob Sterry's unerring ear brings the story an extra measure of reality through his deft pronunciations.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending, but I won't spoil it for you, except to say this book has a conclusion you will always remember.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is worth adding to your permanent collection.

A Father's Love Never Changes

This book takes the listener back in time to the Biblical days of Kings and Queens and war among family members. King David has several children by several different wives. Back then a King could do whatever he wanted. He ruled the land wisely but was not so wise when it came to his sons.
This book made me realize that some things in life never change...many of the issues in this book such as incest and murder are still around today and will always be around.
I enjoyed the narrator's voice and the manner in which he spoke. I've always enjoyed how people conversed back in those days--such proper English.
I appreciate receiving this book in exchange for a review.
This was a gripping story and quite shocking in some parts but overall I totally enjoyed being brought back in time to this era.
