Against the historical backdrop of the rise and fall of maneuvering kings and warring empires in 1 and 2 Kings and 1 and 2 Chronicles, the fictional series Kingdoms traces the saga of the dedicated advisor Iddo and his descendants. As he remains loyal to the memory of the just King Josiah and labors to keep his nation faithful to the Lord, Iddo struggles to protect his own family. ARMIES DESCEND ON A CITY WITH NO WALL. The grandeur and strength of Persia is far from Jerusalem---a city laid broken with no defense. But the Jewish people's safety rests in the empire's queen, as the beautiful Esther must decide whether to risk her life to save her people from genocide. Enemies encroach as the gamble of a queen and the hope of a prophet attempt to restore the fortunes of the chosen people.
