A Fight to the Death, in Shakespearean Verse! (Author's Narration) Israel. 9th-century BC. Jezebel has killed the true prophets of the Lord, and Elijah must flee her wrath. 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 the royal bodyguard. Saucy yet sacred, this timeless tale takes wing in the poet's pen, the poet's voice! "Fun, interesting, and entertaining, with elements of a heroic quest, pure fantasy, and sexy romance.” Karen Siddall "The telling was riveting, and you don’t need to know the story ahead of time to be moved by it.” Kit Donner “LeRoy has a great talent for writing an epic poem, and his hypnotic voice lends grandly to the narration of the story.” Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews, Top 10 Books of 2018 "An epic tale, Biblically based, but with considerable writer’s freedom that makes the book wholly entertaining."

Summary

A Fight to the Death, in Shakespearean Verse!

(Author's Narration)

Israel. 9th-century BC. Jezebel has killed the true prophets of the Lord, and Elijah must flee her wrath.

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 the royal bodyguard.

Saucy yet sacred, this timeless tale takes wing in the poet's pen, the poet's voice!

"Fun, interesting, and entertaining, with elements of a heroic quest, pure fantasy, and sexy romance.”
