Publisher Description

A Dangerous Prophet for Dangerous Times!
(Now joined by the author's audiobook narration)
Israel. 9th-century BC. Jezebel has killed the true prophets of the Lord, and Elijah must flee her wrath…
Beneath the Juniper of fragrant breath,
Its scant shade bringing comfort nonetheless,
A long-locked man collapses, prays for death,
A fugitive, alone, voicing distress,
All hope abandoned in the wilderness.
"It is enough now, Lord, I can no more!"
And lays his head upon the desert floor...

But he is not alone. Embraced by a shapeshifting goddess, counseled by a great angel, he is empowered to call down fire from Heaven!
In the spirit of Dante, Shakespeare, and Homer, this epic poem relives the stunning miracles of the great prophet as described in the Old Testament—fed by ravens, raising the dead, commanding the rain, calling down fire from Heaven, outrunning horses, ascending to Heaven.
But along with all this, the author weaves a rich thread of mythological influences: shapeshifting goddesses, shamanic journeys, dueling dragons, Queen Jezebel's seductions, and dissension in the ranks of King Ahab's bodyguard.
Saucy yet sacred, and now joined by the author's own audiobook narration, this timeless tale takes wing in the poet's pen, the poet's voice!
"An epic tale, Biblically based, but with considerable writer’s freedom that makes the book wholly entertaining."
San Francisco Review of Books
"Just wonderfully written and put together… A new realm of reading."
