9780984993246: Rise to Power (The David Chronicles) (Volume 1)

Here is the story of David as you have never heard it before: from the king himself, telling the unofficial version, the one he never allowed his court scribes to recount. Rooted in ancient lore, his is a surprisingly modern memoir.

Notorious for his contradictions, David is seen by others as a gifted court entertainer, a successful captain in Saul’s army, a cunning fugitive, a traitor leading a gang of felons, and a ruthless raider of neighboring towns who leaves no witnesses behind. But how does he see himself, during this first phase of his life?

With his hands stained with blood, can he find an inner balance between conflicting drives: his ambition for the crown, his determination to survive the conflict with Saul, and his longing for purity, for a touch of the divine, as expressed so lyrically in his psalms?

If you like ancient historical fiction about court intrigue, this king David novel has a modern twist like no book you have read before.

From the Inside Flap:

About the cover:
For the cover I selected one of my watercolors for a backdrop, over which I positioned the head of Bernini's David. I love the dynamic expression, the effort it imparts both physically and mentally. This, to me, is the essence of this wonderfully complex character. Set against the tension between cool and warm colors, intense and loose pigments, here is an ambitious man trying to figure out how to take charge of his life, and how to make a mark on history.

The author name and the name of the series, The David Chronicles, appear in capital letters to indicate regal formality, but the title Rise to Power is written in flowing, expressive font, as if the king himself scribbled it upon his papyrus roll.

The letters appear in glorious gold hues, yet they are dipped in blood red glow as a symbol of David's life. As a fugitive and a leader of a band of felons, he exacted a terrible vengeance on towns and villages surrounding Gath, the stronghold of his Philistine master. Because of the blood on his hands, he was deemed unworthy of building the temple in the city of David.
