Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.

And so my prayer was one of gratitude and petition that she might rival the wisdom of kings.
“Seek wisdom,” I whispered to her, “and rise.”

She didn’t desire to be seen. She certainly never aspired to be queen. But the position this stunning woman resigns herself to eventually brings her a daughter of destiny in Ismeni: Prelude to The Legend of Sheba by author Tosca Lee.

Wow. Heartwrenching and intriguing in one fell swoop, with an aching kind of beauty to it.

Yes, this short read is all the more significant if you’re familiar with the biblical story of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. Secondly, it makes all the more sense if you’ve heard of the renowned wisdom of Solomon. Thirdly, it’s more than good to know that Ismeni is the coming Queen of Sheba’s mother. And if I’ve ever read a compelling and ideal setup for a related novel, this is it.

If I had any doubts before about whether I’d really read The Legend of Sheba: Rise of a Queen sometime or not, its prequel here has eliminated those doubts.
