THE PEASANT KING by Tessa Afshar, Reviewed by Kim

The Peasant King is another beautifully written story by Tessa Afshar. I absolutely loved The Hidden Prince so I was excited to read about Keren and Jared’s daughter, Jemmah.

When Keren goes missing, Jemmah sets out to find her. This turns into an adventure that was unexpected and so fun to read! I loved both Asher and Jemmah and how their relationship developed. I also loved getting to see how characters from the previous story were doing. As usual with a Tessa Afshar story, I was completely immersed the entire time!

I’d love to have another story in this series! Highly recommended! 4 stars!

BackCover Blurb:
Jemmah has always thought of herself as perfectly ordinary . . . until she faces extraordinary circumstances.

When her mother, the Persian king’s famous senior scribe, is kidnapped, Jemmah and her sister must sneak undetected into enemy territory to rescue her. But infiltrating their adversary’s lands proves easier than escaping them. Fleeing through dangerous mountain passes, their survival depends on the skills of a stranger they free from prison: a mysterious prince named Asher.

Asher is not who the world believes he is. Despite his royal blood, he has had to climb his way out of poverty to forge success from nothing. A manufacturer of some of the best weaponry in the East, Asher has only one goal: to destroy his father. But following his escape from prison, Asher is irresistibly drawn to Jemmah, unaware that she guards her own secret.

Jemmah must convince Asher to give up everything he has worked for, all for the sake of a higher purpose he’s not sure he believes in. The fate of the Persian empire—and possibly the Judean people—hang in the balance and in the persuasive power of one ordinary woman.

Bestselling author Tessa Afshar delivers another adventurous novel filled with romance and imagination, reminding readers of what Publishers Weekly calls her “amazing talent for packing action and intrigue into the biblical setting for modern readers.
