Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments The cover art for my new novel, The Edge of Revolt, is my watercolor painting inspired by a quick charcoal sketch which I have drawn while listening to music--several pieces of music, each with a different rhythm and mood, reflected here. I imagined that these rhythms are taking me to a magical landscape, which I am yet to explore--

The Edge of Revolt (The David Chronicles Book 3) by Author Uvi Poznansky

I have experienced the rare opportunity to get to really know a Bible character, warts and all. It would seem that King David had his fair share of them if one were to embrace this author's microscopic view of a powerful man's life in ancient times. In the author's own words..."It's amazing to be in the skin of the character from childhood to old age." My sentiments exactly...a great read indeed! I am an author myself and with each novel I read by Ms. Poznansky, she continues to inspire me to be a better one.

The Prologue sets the pace for the elderly and frail King David. Strongly advised by Bathsheba to choose an heir to the throne before the possibility of unnecessary rivalry results between his eldest living son Adoniah by Haggith, and his youngest son Solomon by Bathsheba, is a decision King David is slow to make. After all...he is still King as he proclaims to Bathsheba when she confronts him yet again.

The poignant presentation in the chronicles of King David as depicted by Author Uvi Poznansky and the endless possibilities of how he conducts the last years of his life, stand out in a very profound way. This talented author has both the skill and the courage to dig deeper into King David's psyche and portray his supposed indecisive character in a mesmerizing way. In doing so, Ms. Poznansky adeptly manages to give him a present day voice combined with a very human, and oftentimes, fragile persona. He seems to be a man with many weaknesses and numerous lustful cravings. This is clearly demonstrated by his several wives and his need for young concubines to frequent his bed and satisfy his sexual cravings. This, now much older King, does not compare to the young, down-to-earth, brave commoner that slayed Goliath. Uncomfortable with the knowledge that his eldest son Amnon follows in his path when it comes to his lustful nature, King David closes his mind to the rumors he hears. Now, emotionally torn by the rape of his daughter... virginal fourteen year old Tamar, defiled by half-brother Amnon, King David lacks the strength and wisdom to effectively deal with this heinous crime. Absalom, Tamar's full brother and Amnon's half-brother, is at his wits end and loses all respect for his father. After much deliberation, frustrating indecision and endless waiting, Absalom decides to take matters into his own hands...

"The Edge of Revolt" is the third and final installment in the Chronicle of David Series. As previously stated, I have read and reviewed the other two but Book 3 is my favorite thus far. It is penned by the same gifted author....well-written in Author Uvi Poznansky's unique and captivating style. However, it offers closure to the life and eventual death of King David. He has led a ponderous life, a gifted psalmist...filling up scroll after scroll, yet persecuted by the realization of his own humanity and need for redemption. Haunted by his love for Bathsheba, the taking of her when she was married to Uriah, and his subsequent act of perpetuating Uriah's murder on the battlefield clearly demonstrates one of the many reasons for the spiritual and emotional turmoil in King David's life. Will he ever find the peace of mind he so deeply desires before his death...?

★★★★★ The Imperfect Life of an Imperfect Ruler-Magnetic Reading, January 1, 2015
By Dii (Florida) (TOP 500 REVIEWER)
This review is from: The Edge of Revolt (The David Chronicles Book 3)

The voice of King David comes alive as he tells of his life as he ages and faces some of the greatest heartaches and turmoil to date. A man once driven by his own needs and desires, a masterful poet, a man possessed by the love of his life, Bathsheba, David is aging and decisions once so readily handed down have hit sickeningly close to his home and heart. Murder and rape within his family have gone unpunished. Why has he been paralyzed into inactivity? He knows his time as ruler will come to a close soon and a successor must be named. Is his eldest, the assumed heir to the throne worthy or will Absalom’s lust for power and control attempt to steal what was his already?
Treachery is afoot and David is losing respect, allies and quite possibly his throne. Emotionally, he is torn, so he is ill-prepared to avoid being overthrown by his own son. Does Absalom have the power to maintain his hold on David’s kingdom? If David should retake his throne, who of his remaining sons can be trusted to continue the legacy he has created?

The Edge of Revolt by the gifted Uvi Poznansky is a beautiful journey back to the time of David, not as a Biblical ruler, but as a flawed man, a ruler who lost touch with his people, his family and with the man he once was. The poet still lives within, but even his pretty words cannot forestall the events to come. Great pain and suffering, death and bloodshed will now be on his hands. Ms. Poznansky gives voice to her characters, with rich emotions while etching their actions into our minds. Each scene is painted into existence by her words with a clarity that causes reality to fade as the centuries are swept away between the now and the “then.” This is a tale of the imperfect life of an imperfect ruler who makes mistakes, matures and seeks his own forgiveness for the chaos he has fathered throughout his reign.

Told as only Uvi Poznansky can, this trilogy is powerful, thought-provoking and at times, painfully difficult to read as a biblical figure becomes human before our eyes.

★★★★★ King David, brilliantly evoked, December 18, 2014
By Convoke "lokhos" (USA)
Verified Purchase

"The Edge of Revolt (The David Chronicles Book Three)" is volume III of the The David Chronicles trilogy, told by the king himself. David is candid and direct and uses modern language that at times is startlingly direct. Immediately, David launches you into a story happening here and now. Since each volume of this brilliant trilogy can be read as a standalone novel, "The Edge of Revolt" is a fine place to begin this biographical fantasy that shows you the world through David's eyes from youth to old age.

In this volume, David struggles to balance the demands of family and and justice. You're with him through biblical events retold with a modern passion, you're there when Amnon rapes his daughter, Tamar; when Absalom lures Amnon to his death. You are inside the king's mind when he allows these comes to go unpunished,.

Even more fascinating than the biblical world Uvi draws are the changes undergone by David as he matures.

When David loses his throne and flees his own son, Abasalom, you feel the king's pain.

Let me make no bones about it: I adore this series -- not only the quality of the writing, but also the writer's ability to transport us into another mind, another time, another ethos that changes and solidifies as David matures. Read this book. Read this series. be waned that the tales have graphic language and painful moments. These are biblical tales, after all, told by a master interpreter who can make her characters breathe and love and hate and win and lose as they've never done before.

If you read nothing else this year, read The David Chronicles. Begin with The Edge of Revolt.

I loved the entire series of… The David Chronicles … I got seduced by the scenic ambience and delectable poetry that Uvi Poznansky dishes up. Rich and tasty, a sumptuous banquet befitting King David himself.

The power, intrigue and conflict that dominates this series is balanced in the most complimentary way. Contrasted by the use of delicate prose and absorbing passion.

I first read Uvi Poznansky to help me improve my own writing. I greatly admire her skills, so much so I’m often compelled to call refer to her as ma’am.

★★★★★ `Oh, Absolom....', February 2, 2015
By Grady Harp (Los Angeles, CA United States)
(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER) (VINE VOICE) (TOP 100 REVIEWER)

Uvi Poznansky wears a coat of many colors. Originally from Israel where she studied Architecture and Town Planning then moving to the US where she studied Computer Science and became an expert in Software Engineering, Poznansky managed to combine the design elements of two studies into unique formats. And she has accomplished the same with the other side of her brain - making visual her ideas (she is an accomplished painter, drawer, and sculptor who has enjoyed exhibitions both in Israel and in California, her present base) and making words in poetry and in short stories and children's books. THE EDGE OF REVOLT is her third installment of THE DAVID CHRONICLES novel and is adorned on the cover with an image of her own painting!

But the miracle of Uvi Poznansky's writing is her uncanny ability to return to old stories and make them brilliantly fresh. This retelling of the Biblical David unveils a character far more profound and fragile than the slayer of Goliath. His personality radiates from every page as he progresses to old age and Poznansky's gift for poetry renders a magical hue to every aspect of this story. At times startling, as times awe-inspiring, and at all times fine reading, this is a welcome addition to the growing library of one our more important writers.

★★★★★ A wonderfully vivid portrait of a very real human being
BySheila Deeth "Sheila Deeth" VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase

Uvi Poznanski’s The Edge of Revolt completes her chronicles of the Biblical King David, offering a clash of swords, cultures and dreams as the aging monarch faces his end. The story follows on where the previous volume left off, but can equally well be read alone. It depicts a very human king, writ large on the pages of scripture and history, and draws a convincing background to his battles and family. Trapped in that eternal triangle of loyalty, love and duty, he watches his children fall into wounded adulthood and can’t protect or direct them. He’s dragged into war, as surely as he has dragged women to his bed. Betraying, betrayed, scheming and schemed against, he’s grown convincingly old, and he mourns what he’s lost. But perhaps, in the end, he’s also offered the chance to find what he needs amongst all the things he thought he wanted.

I love this series for its convincing depiction of real people in ancient times, for its unflinching honesty, and for its vividly real characters. This David is no cardboard cutout to be filled in with bright crayoned colors. This Bathsheba is no plaything. And women will stand on the stage of history, will have their voice, and will cry out for love and hate and hope.
Echoing with phrases from the psalms, singing with a lonely king’s “hope for redemption... when prayers go unanswered,” and filled with real characters who have “learn[ed] their lessons—not from ... psalms, but from ... deeds,” this novel brings the Bible to life, takes readers deep into David’s mind, and leaves us knowing the characters of the past, or even of the Bible, weren’t so different from people today after all.

I love the series, and I love the novel; highly recommended.

Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments Below, somewhere in the women’s quarters, children are starting to awaken. I hear their voices: some cry, others call for their mothers. One of them, a young girl, runs out to the courtyard, then stops and turns her head back.
I squint against the light, which allows me to recognize her: she is my grandchild, Absalom’s child.
Now she waves at me. Her laughter is so pure, so melodic. It is full of silvery notes, which reminds me of my own daughter, Tamar, and the way she used to laugh, before silence overtook her.
I want to go down to the child and put my arms around her to keep her safe, now and in the future—but I know that it is not in my power. Even so I murmur to her, across the distance, “Let you never surrender to silence, because if you do, it would leave you with the rusty, poisonous taste of shame.”
The child has opened the gate. Like me, she is watching the sunrise. I wonder what it means for her. Perhaps, hope.
One day my daughter, Tamar, will stop listening to the dictates of those who wished to hush her. She will no longer obey the words, ‘Shut up,’ which she must still be hearing in her mind, in the voice of Amnon, who raped her. Nor will she obey the words, “Be silent for now,” in the voice of Absalom, who sought to protect her.
The real shame—now I know—is to consent to silence. A day will come when she will transform her suffering into meaning, into words.

Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments Dan Strawn is the author of Isaac's Gun, Body of Work, and Breakfast at Blair's, Lame Bird's Legacy, and Black Wolf's Return. I am truly honored that having read the entire David Chronicles he posted this thoughtful review for the last volume, The Edge of Revolt:

★★★★★ A fitting end to David's story, March 23, 2015
By Dan Strawn
This review is from: The Edge of Revolt (The David Chronicles Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
In Book three of the David Chronicles, Uvi Poznansky continues to deliver first class character development with her first-person story telling. “The Edge of Revolt” follows King David into his old age. Uvi puts us there. We discover the cracks in the king's character, apparent to those in his court, yet denied by his regal vanity until at last the King sees the truth in the shattered lives of his progeny—his murderous and dishonorable sons, and Tamar, his ravished and dishonored daughter—all victims in David's eyes of his shortcomings.

As in the first two books in the trilogy, Uvi performs masterful story telling by mining between the lines of the biblical renditions. There she finds nuggets of what-if revelation about who this David of yore really was. Again, she puts us there, this time by sprinkling the narrative and dialogue with characterizations and idioms right out of the Twenty-First Century:

“Dad,” she has Solomon ask David, “are you cold?”

And from her narraative—“. . . I am a king, and a king I shall remain till my last breath.

“Out with the old, in with the new?”

Not to be outdone by the biblical poet, Uvi has her own ways of evoking emotion and eloquence:

“Back in the palace, where we used to walk on the softest of rugs, our soles have softened. Spoiled by luxury, so have our souls. To survive this winter in the wilderness, body and spirit must harden.

Can we do it? God knows.”

Or

“... everyone knows that when Joav comes too close, as if to hug you or whisper a dirty joke in your ear, the next thing you know is a stab under the fifth rib.”

Or

“To remind him of the words uttered by Abner, the general he stabbed to death years ago, I ask, 'should the sword devour forever?'”

How like David; how like Uvi in portraying him.

Enough. If you haven't read the first two books in the trilogy, put them by your nightstand. When you are finished with them, you won't be satisfied until you've turned the last page of “The Edge of Revolt.”

message 17: by Uvi (new) - rated it 5 stars

Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments Now I rush out of the court to stop what I know is about to happen. A horde of servants forms around me, which unfortunately slows me down. They are crossing each other in great confusion, running every which way, unsure what I want, what is expected of them, and why there is such a wild, frightened look in my eyes.
“Beware,” cries one of them, pointing at the horizon. “Look: the sky is darkening.”
“A storm is coming,” cries another.
And a third one begs me, “Come back into the palace, your majesty! This is a dangerous time to be outdoors.”
I pay no attention to them, and without waiting for my stable boy to bridle my stallion I mount it.
I tap my heels into its sides, urging the animal first into trotting, then into galloping at a blistering pace down the hill to my son’s house. I can no longer deny knowing the desire that ails him, nor can I pretend to doubt the rumors. Lately, they have become wild, and far too persistent. Amnon has forced himself on young girls before. I’ve heard of it. I know it.
Now can I get there in time, before he lays a hand on my only daughter?
Blood throbbing. Veins swelling. Heart coming close to a burst. Rage. Then, a sudden gust of wind slaps my face. Blustering in from the east, a hot, howling gale whips desert sand into the air, blinding me.
I blink away the dust, the tears, and charge ahead, riding my stallion at full speed, nearly slipping over the acorns strewn all over, under the oak trees. Hooves drumming, drumming upon the dirt road, never fast enough.
As I turn the bend I spot a dark figure racing ahead opposite me through the woods. For a minute I think I see myself—a reflection of me in him. There is that young man, flying through the gap between one tree trunk and another, coming at me through the next gap, and the one after that. He crosses my path and blocks me. So I rein in my stallion, and when the dust settles I recognize him.
There, against a background of tortuous, thorny branches, sitting astride his mule, is my second son, Absalom--

★★★★★ A Fighter Till the End, May 11, 2015
Verified Purchase
"Whatever else I may have lost during the years of my decline, the instinct of a fighter is still in me, which I find amazing. I hope it will go on sustaining me to the end."

This quote from Uvi's 3rd installment of The David Chronicles sums up the entire read eloquently. As with the other novels, Poznansky delivers rich, vibrant characters who speak to the reader in real time. Such an approach to these biblical renditions bring tales of old to life in a way that gives them a vivid and authentic tone allowing the reader to feel and see every scene.

Uvi's poetic nature comes through the prose stronger than ever with this story as she pushes her character to his limits. David must navigate the tentative politics surrounding his leadership as drama unfolds around him. All the while, he faces the unrelenting mirror of his own mortality and the decisions he must make to stop a revolt and find his successor.

This is a beautifully told story. I recommend it highly.

Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments Thomas Jerome Baker has written books in the following genres: romance, historical fiction, autobiographical, sports history/biography, and English Language Teaching. I am thrilled to find his review of my trilogy, The David Chronicles:

★★★★★ Extraordinary and fascinating, June 23, 2015
By Thomas Baker​
God called David “a man after his own heart”. The first time we see David in the Bible is when the prophet Samuel comes to Jesse’s house looking for the next king of Israel. King Saul had been rejected by God—though he still sat on the throne. God said in 1 Samuel 13 that He would remove the kingdom from Saul and give it to a “man after his own heart” (1 Samuel 13:13, 14). In chapter 16 Samuel went to Jesse’s house looking to anoint the new king.

David was Jesse’s son and the youngest of eight brothers. Samuel looked over the other brothers and knew that God had not chosen any of them. Samuel asked Jesse if there were any more sons to consider. In 1 Samuel 16:11 Samuel said that he would eagerly wait until David came from the pasture where he was tending the sheep. Samuel anointed David as king even though he was still a young man. We don’t know how old David was when this took place, but it is commonly believed that he was just a boy between the ages of 8 and 12.

What author Uvi Poznansky does in "The David Chronicles" is give us a fresh perspective on the story of David. David's story is common to us all through our reading of the Bible. In the hands of Poznansky, it is an extraordinary, fascinating and ambitious literary endeavour. Making use of artistic license, this story is like nothing we have ever heard before: from the king himself, giving the unofficial version, "the one that could not be allowed to be told or written." This makes use of our ability to suspend disbelief, and enjoy the story for what it is, without reference to the reality we are familiar with. It's a fascinating and irresistible proposition, recognizing that all humans share the "urge to tell all." David, freed from the constraints of his biblical identity, indeed, tells all... ** I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.

The Edge of Revolt (The David Chronicles #3) by Uvi Poznansky

Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments Michelle Bellon​ is a young yet prolific author, whose books, Embracing Me, Embracing You, Rogue Alliance, and her latest, The Fire Within, are thrilling to read. One of her questions was, "Describe your writing style," To which I replied, "I would describe my writing style as layered, much like Lasagna, with each layer having a different flavor and a different texture that complements the entire dish. How do I achieve this? The process, for me, is very similar to the way I sculpt: I shape the clay, then go around the unfinished piece and view it from an unexpected direction, in various lights, sometimes in the morning, sometimes at night, so as to achieve an effect that works well for me. Similarly when I write--"

Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments Born in Potsdam, Germany, Gisela Sedlmayer​ has a love for the written word. Having moved to New Zealand and then to Austria, and having fought her cancer with the best weapon--creativity--she is the author of the Talon series, bringing the story and the characters to life over the course of several years. I am thrilled to find her review of my trilogy, The David Chronicles:

★★★★★ A very different look at King David, a powerful read, June 21, 2015

Uvi Potznansky really did a marvellous work with the David Chronicle. She describes King David's affairs as if the was standing beside him, felt his fears, his feelings, his anxiousness, his mistakes, his love affairs with his beloved Bathsheba, his failures and his sorrows. Also his strife to become King. All in all a very different look at King David.

Book 1 "Rise to power"
David was facing lots of dangers, like killing the Philistine Goliath, or even running away from Kind Soul, as he wants him dead. David could have killed him any time, but he, David refused to do so. Soul was anointed by God. And when Soul died in battle with the Philistines, David was devastated.

I thought that was very good, as David said to his servant: “The purpose of all this was for me to realize my future and the future of my House. The House of David in the years and generation to come."

Whether you are religious or not, you will enjoy this story about David, told in such a way, as if it just happen now, just another story. But is it?

David, from a shepherds boy to a musician to sooth king Soul’s soul, until he himself becomes king.

Book 2, "A peek at Bathsheba"
I really wonder how Uvi can put herself, discernment, into the shoes of King David and write such amazing books about him. All the things he is thinking and not doing or doing as King or should do. Like should he take his beloved Bathsheba or not. He really was thinking hard about taking her. He knew it was wrong, but he couldn’t help himself.

Something that really spoke to me: David Said in the eyes of Uvi: "That which has been is what will be.”

And: “This has been an adventurous journey, and a long one. In my exhaustion I can barely move my lips, heal, a time to tear down and a time to build. How fortunate it is for me to find myself back here. I am a father. I am the keeper of my people. What a moment this is, the perfect moment to usher in a new era.”

Book 3, "The edge of the revolt"
The story of Amnon, as he assaulted Absalom's sister, Tamar. Then Absalom kills his brother Amnon for revenge, because King David, his father wouldn't do anything about it, wouldn't punish him. How could King David kill his own son? King David just couldn't bring himself to do it, to kill his own son.

Then Absalom rises to power, despising David, his father, punishing him with. Until the last battle when Absalom...

Well, I won't spoil anymore about the amazing story, Uvi Poznansky unfolds here. You have to read that incredible story about King David and Absalom.

Reading The Chronicle of King David let me think again, when I am reading it in my bible, remembering all what Uvi wrote here. She is an excellent writer and narrator.
Perfectly narrated and a very good read for everyone.
Loved all three books.

An outstanding description of the biblical event about King David's rain. Well done Uvi Poznansky

Even thought I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. Your rod and your staff they comfort me.

Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments Her face still rosy with a sense of embarrassment, Abishag wipes the little smile from her lips and curtseys before me. She is obedient, perhaps even fearful of me. Plumping herself on my blankets, she goes back to holding the inkwell for me. 
I dip the tip of my feather in it, glancing at the veins marbling my thinning, nearly transparent skin. Is this my hand? Why is it trembling so? It seems to be my father’s, and so does my voice, when I utter the words as I scribble them, “When I kept silent, my bones wasted away, through my groaning all day long. For day and night, your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped, as in the heat of summer.”

I have created something about which I have been dreaming since the days of my youth: a grand shell for justice, learning, and power. And like a shell, it is fragile--

It is my pleasure to introduce new books and authors to my readers. Writing is my life!" I'm thrilled that she invited me for to talk about my trilogy, The David Chronicles, and about what inspired it. Here is the beginning of my answer:

"The entire trilogy is greatly inspired by painting and sculpture throughout the history of art, depicting the story David, who is an exceptional historical figure with great gifts, facing great temptations in love and war. You can easily read each one of the three volumes as a standalone novel, yet the themes of power and love run through the entire trilogy, allowing you to witness the drastic change in the main character from youth to old age. I find this transformation fascinating and hope you will too."

★★★★★ Superb and unique (well not quite as his too other books are cut from the same fabric).
By Richard A Deckeron February 26, 2016 Verified Purchase

This is the third book in a series about the life of (King) David. Read the others first. I LOVED all three. The reader gets to see inside Davids's head about everything that is going on in his life. It is enlightening and entertaining. I had a hard time putting the books down (well my phone). This book is not at all about the details in doing anything David talks about. By that I mean you never get to hear how his breakfast is gotten together and cooked and served. Or how he gets his armies together and how he feeds them But you get to see inside him - his fears, his loves, his hates, his dreams. I wish there were more like ethis.

Did I not defy his charge for me to remain there, in Hebron, and support him in his time of need?

★★★★★ A Wonderful Study and Contemplation of the Story, David and Goliath!
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Uvi Poznansky is not a new author to me, but she is one I would like to have had time to enjoy more of her books than I've had the opportunity. This book is quite different and is intended to support the story of David...and Goliath. It appears to be a complete, or, if not, an extensive collection of art through the ages as created by those who were inspired by the Biblical story of a young hero, David, who chose to fight the giant Goliath and, with God's promise, killed him. This is a continuation of the novels by Poznansky, The David Chronicles.

What a wonderful way to complement this trilogy! If you are familiar with the story, moving through a "gallery" of different versions of the same story creates an extraordinary event for the individual who chooses this fantastic book... Needless to say that you will see the works of all the great artists from the past... I appreciated the choice to include "detail" shots to emphasize different parts of the original work. For instance, in a Bernini sculpture, the author chose to hone in on the arm and the slingshot, while in reality you would have to move around the statue to see the detail of that small part of the whole... Only a talented writer and artist could have created this, it seems... emphasizing the story itself, as an important part of what was important to highlight on the complementary art work... I was impress.

I, for instance, became intrigued by the different perspectives of the story that were included in the finished works. Take, for instance, Goliath. Some artists portrayed him as a true giant, looking over the countryside, while others showed him as a man, perhaps, taller than any of his fellow soldiers, but, still not a giant... What was the message that each of the artists chose in deciding what Goliath must have looked like?

Even more importantly, David! Some portrayed him as a mere child, while others showed someone nearly a man. Was it to emphasize that David was the embodiment of God's strength inside of the boy-man? Did each artist portray David at an age and size that seemed most believable to he, himself? Bernini's portrayal of David as he got ready to throw his sling, is of a young strong man... While Rembrandt chose to emphasize the giant over the young boy. For me, I found Rembrandt's work more credible, simply because of the story as I learned it as a child...

But no matter what, readers will discover a unique display of creativity as you might never see anywhere else--the ability to compare the same characters of one of the great historical stories of all time, and witness how each artist chose to share the story in picture form! I found it not only a learning experience, but one that is memorable and exciting to revisit and ponder.

Hopefully, art students will find this collection among all the books out there. For me, I'd recommend it as a must-read to them... Also Religion scholars would also find it a valuable, compiled collection that in easy format provides a wealth of comparative analysis of the artists' works as well as the perspective of the historical tale that most impressed each artist. I certainly appreciated this opportunity and highly recommend it for your consideration...

Bravo!

Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments I am thrilled to find a five-star review for my art book, Inspired by Art: The Edge of Revolt. The review is written by top Amazon reviewer and author Sheila Deeth. In addition to her novel, Divide by Zero, she has written The Five Minute Bible Story Series, and other books. With a Masters in mathematics from Cambridge University, England, she is a a top reviewer for Amazon, Goodreads, Gather and other reading sites. This is what she says:

★★★★★ Great images set an awesome stage for envisioning history
Verified Purchase
From the rich bright colors of classical painting, through the pallor of engravings, the silk and foil-wrapped threads of old techniques, and even the mystical brush-strokes of modern art, Uvi Poznansky’s trail through art’s inspiration tells the story of King David’s erring sons Amnon and Absolom with startling immediacy. It’s a tale that starts with temptation and violation and ends with war’s hard-wrought peace—the dark side of Biblical history perhaps.

For me, the most lasting images are Guercino’s study for the Feast of Absalom—a picture that with its very lack of color offers a scarily graphic image of hatred, anger and despair—and Schwebel’s modern-day Jaffa Road and Zion Square. A father mourns in the vivid reds of Chagall, a general warns, and an aging kings looks back on his past—an image that surely sets the stage for the author’s beautiful novels of King David’s life and times.

There’s another Inspired by Art book coming soon, and I can hardly wait to enjoy it. Author Uvi Poznansky makes history come to life in her novels, and brings art to life in these beautiful art books too.

Disclosure: I found it on a deal and I love it.

Uvi Poznansky | 480 comments Glenda A Bixler is an excellent book reviewer, and her reviews of Rise to Power and of A Peek at Bathsheba (the first two volumes in the trilogy) are thought provokingh. But she has outdone herself in her latest review, the one for the last volume, The Edge of Revolt. Not only did she include David's psalms in her essay and not only did she open with an excerpt but she used the book's name in a twist I did not see coming, a twist that is amazingly appropriate for our times.

This is how she opened her piece: As soon as I had reviewed three of the Inspired by Art books in this series, the last of which complemented this book, I knew I wanted to read the novels. As with the Art book, I found the third book, The Edge of Revolt, the most provocative and filled with new information...for me... I admit that somehow I had missed the impact of what happened to David in his later life...and to his children...
