The daughter of a pagan priestess believes Noah's prophecy - especially when she discovers the horrifying secret behind her city's primary export. Belief in the One God is dangerous in Cainlan, a city founded on the worship of the god Cain. But when Eliana meets the son of a religious fanatic she is drawn to Shem's caring manner and deep faith. She believes his assertion that the One God will wipe the earth clean of the corruption that fills it, especially when she discovers a terrifying secret known only to those high in the government's ruling council. Though desperate to escape her destiny, Eliana's life has been preordained. Not even Shem's God can rescue her from the fate for which she was born - becoming the next high priestess to Cain.

Christian fiction that tackles serious themes.
I liked the writing style. The author made the scenes come alive. She portrayed accurate historical scenes with bustling cities and sacrificial temple practices. These characters are not barbaric cave people, but normal human people.
I like that it does not shy away from difficult themes like spousal abuse, the difficulty of building the Ark, the balance between God's provision and human action, and how God can be good and still kill innocent people.
She has a lively but well modulated voice. She performs the characters very well. She is delightful to listen to.
Is the end near?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
- pixledust "Because tales should be told."
Interesting idea, but I wasn't a fan.
