One of the darkest battles ever fought was not won or lost on a medieval battlefield but in one of the most opulent palaces ever built. The strategies come not from men eager to extend their influence but from women bent on exercising their wit and prowess in a kingdom not their own. Treason and murder are fair game. Marriage is manipulation, a means to an end. Children are the enemy. And the days of the House of David are numbered--unless one woman can find the strength to conquer them all. Based on the story told in 2 Chronicles 21-23, Dark Hour reveals the story of Jezebel's notorious daughter Athaliah. Only one woman dared to stand between Athaliah and the ultimate prize: the destruction of the House of David.
