A deadly assault …
A former soldier in the Jewish army whose lethal talents earned him the title angel of death, NATHAN OF RUMAH just wants a quiet life on his family’s olive farm. But his idyll ends abruptly when he rescues a wealthy and prominent Pharisee and his family from a brutal attack by rebels he calls friends.
Nathan vows to right the wrong, never guessing it will lead to his hasty marriage to the Pharisee’s shy daughter Alexandra. The tender passion he finds with his new wife only strengthens his need to seek justice for her and her family. Determined to end the bloody rebellion against Rome, Nathan picks up his sword again, seeking help from his friend—the newly-minted governor of Galilee, Herod.
A formidable warrior …
ALEXANDRA ONIAS is enthralled and unnerved to find herself wed, not to a scholar, but to a warrior. The risks her valiant husband takes on her behalf come at a terrible price when Nathan's countrymen turn against him. Shaken as she realizes how much Nathan has sacrificed on her behalf, Alexandra fights to save her husband from the rebels’ revenge… and from Herod’s blind ambition.
A clash of loyalty, deception and desire …
Betrayed by friends and hunted by neighbors, Nathan and Alexandra fight side by side to protect their loved ones, their home, and their very lives. But the couple's blossoming love faces ruin when the rebels strike out and Nathan unleashes the full fury of... The Warrior.

Nathan and Alexandra were a delightful pair to read about. I really enjoyed their story. It was nice reading about a time in the past when religion was the center of the daily lives. I loved being transported from this current life we have into a reality that wasn't that long ago in the grand scheme of life.

It took me a little bit to get into the book. To start identifying with the characters but once I was hooked there was no going back.

I would like to see what happens next in their life, where things took them.

If you like books that take you back to a time we only read about in history books then this is a great read for you.
