YOUNG HEROD: A Novel of Herod the Great, King of Judaea (The Herod Cycle Book 1)


This is the story of a man who should have been a hero but who is remembered today as one of the great villains of history, the wicked ruler of countless Nativity Plays

Herod the Great, King of Judaea, 40 – 4 BC, is best known as the baby-killer of the Gospel of Matthew. Yet the same historians who confirm that he was quite capable of such ruthlessness also paint another picture, that of the dashing man of action who preserved the independence of his people against the odds at a time when the Middle East was the battleground of superpowers.

This novel is an attempt to explain that contradiction. It takes the form of Herod’s own memoirs – which he really did write, but which are now lost to us. It focuses on his early years and shows how a good-hearted young man begins to be corrupted by power and violence – a theme on which, it is hoped, later novels will expand.

It also draws attention to some strange parallels between the Middle East of Herod’s time and the situation that still prevails there today.
