Akabe of Siphra is certain his people are insane.

Why have they made him a king?
What, in the name of peacetime boredom do kings do?

Frustrated by a lengthy silence from his Creator, the Infinite, Akabe decides to prove himself as king by undertaking a monumental task, his own lifelong dream: Rebuild the Infinite’s temple in Siphra.

But Akabe’s impulsive decision sweeps him into a storm of controversy. The Infinite’s enemies join forces in Siphra, and beyond, conspiring to destroy the emerging temple—and to kill their king and his mysterious new queen.

 This book wasn't my favorite. It was mostly imaginary politics. There was no plot, no topics of interest, nothing. The only thing that it really had going for it was that I got a good back story on the characters. I knew exactly what each character had gone through, and I could understand their feelings as the story progressed. The king is forced to marry, asks one girl the he likes, gets turned down and ends up marrying the daughter of his enemy.
Everything was based on building a temple of worship, which is all fine and dandy, until there is nothing else going on in the story. At all. Nothing was happening! I had to force myself to read it. One other thing that I did kind of like about it though was some of the similarities between the main character King Akabe and King David of the Bible. There were little snippets where the two almost seemed like the same person. This author has great potential for future best-sellers, but she has a long way to go.
