Josiah, the boy-king who reformed Judah, banning idol worship and reinstating God's laws, is killed in battle, and his faithful advisor Iddo sees trouble ahead in The Coming Storm, book 1 of the Kingdoms series. Judah is squeezed between two powerful allies, Egypt and Assyria, while mighty Babylon looms in the distance-and Iddo fears his nation will again forget the Lord. Incapacitated at first by his grief, Iddo rises to fulfill his duty and encourage his peers to seek God's will in anointing a new king. But Judah's advisors have made their decision, selecting from among Josiah's sons one they think they can easily control. When Iddo realizes they've put a fool in power at a time of national crisis, he must choose between serving his country and focusing on the family who needs him.
