It's been a long time for me on this one. The memory is hazy. Still, I love most of the author's work.

Characters: Quite predictable. But at least the lead is lovable.
Plot: A couple twists here and there. Good fight scenes as expected.
Style: High fantasy adventure all the way. ( )

Interesting book, thankfully not the bodice-ripper the cover would imply. Well written, with meticulous attention to historic detail, quite possibly the first enjoyable book I've read that notes what tribe went where and did what around what year. After reading Heroes Die, I kept an eye out for his other books and this one didn't disappoint. ( )

First words
The storyteller sat cross-legged on a thin cloth pallet stuffed with straw; a shallow bowl holding a scattering of silver coins lay on the sandy flagstones near the storyteller's bony knees.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0451457587, Mass Market Paperback)

A band of Bronze Age mercenaries face the supreme enemy--Yahweh, the Lord of the nation of Israel--in Jericho Moon, the sequel to Iron Dawn. The barbarian princess Barra and her compatriots take on the job of rescuing the prince of Jebusi (Jerusalem) from the tribes of the Habiru. But rescuing him is the easy part--compared to the challenge of saving the entire city of Jebusi from the righteous slaughter that the Habiru war-leader Joshua and his thousands of warriors have planned. Barra can't turn down the role of savior; not only is the prince of Jebusi an attractive guy, but the city's goddess has made it clear that Barra is her chosen champion, and the city hasn't a chance without her. Jericho Moon is filled with thoroughly scary magical battles--think thunderbolts, hail of stones, and other demonstrations of godly wrath. While there is still some humorous by-play, as when Barra meets some barbarians from her homeland at a fancy party, this book is darker than Iron Dawn and the subject matter more risky. (Yet Yahweh does shine as a vengeful and merciless villain.) Jericho Moon is first-class fantasy entertainment, stuffed with likable characters, brawling adventures, and heroic struggles. --Blaise Selby
