Book Review: Garden of Madness

3 Jun

The First Wild Card Blog Tour reviewed Tracy L. Higley’s book Garden of Madness last month.  But I didn’t get my book until after the tour.  So here is my belated review.  To see all the info about the book and author, including an excerpt, click HERE.

My Impressions:

Tracy Higley has been writing an historical fiction series using the 7 wonders of the ancient world as backdrops.  In Garden of Madness, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon serve as the setting to a novel featuring the 7 years of madness of King Nebuchadnezzar.  Higley poses the question of just went on in the kingdom while the King lived as a wild beast. The result is a novel filled with intrigue, deception, murder, and a very spunky heroine in the king’s daughter, Tiamat. Fictional and historical characters come together to provide an entertaining story of just what might have happened.  If you like history, especially during the days of Israel’s captivity, and a suspenseful story filled with danger and courage, then pick up Garden of Madness.


(I received Garden of Madness in conjunction with First Wild Card Blog Tour.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.)
