A.D. 33 by Ted Dekker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Time has moved on, yet Maviah is still trying to find her way in this world ruled by men. She has overcome being an illegitimate female to become the Queen of the Outcasts. She rules with the truths she has learned through Yeshua (Jesus) and continues to fight for those who trust in her protection. Her group of outcasts has been traveling the desert, but peace is not easily found when the surrounding rulers become fearful of her power. Maviah wants to find Yeshua for his help, but her plans are quickly sidetracked when she discovers he is approaching his own death.
A.D. 33 is the second book in the series and picks up not too long after the ending of the first book. Maviah’s story continues to be told with Yeshua’s teachings woven within. Readers who are looking for more about Jesus will be disappointed in this tale, but if they know it is a story about the time surrounding his crucifixion and the period leading to Pentecost, then readers will be pleased with the storyline. Dekker has written a satisfying historical fiction book with a strong Christian message within.
