Indie Author alert! Check out Whore of Babylon by Azaria Frost

If anyone wants a fantastic HistFic you’ll want to read and read again, be sure to check this one out. With drama, tragedy, loss, romance, and a fight for freedom, Whore of Babylon follows the story of young Eliana’s struggle to survive as the whore of a cruel Babylonian prince when her city is sacked and her life reduced to nothing. You’ll cheer for Eli in her fights, cry with her loss, find yourself tormented when faced with her terrifying and difficult choices, and rejoice when her intelligence and endurance paves her way to well-deserved success.

I had the pleasure of following this book in its growth and completion on Wattpad and it’s honestly one of the best Wattpad books I’ve read — and one of the best HIstFic books I’ve read on and off Wattpad.

Well done, Azaria!

Ancient Sumeria, 1750 BC: Sixteen-year-old Eliana is passionate, determined, stubborn, and has a strong sense of family and duty. As daughter of the city governor, she wants only to emulate her father and work to make her city, Nippur, a better place for its people.

Crown Prince Samsu of Babylon, a man known for his ruthlessness and cruelty, conquers Nippur and installs himself as its ruler. His search for a concubine leads him straight to Eliana’s beloved sister. When Kisha is taken away, Eliana is devastated, thinking she’ll never see her sister again.

Eliana risks her life to sneak into the dreaded Red Palace and see her sister, but things don’t go according to plan. Samsu, intrigued by her courage, takes her into slavery, determined to break her spirit and teach her a woman’s place. But Eliana will not break easily, and Samsu underestimates how far she will go to protect her loved ones.

In a brutal environment where women are expendable and the Prince’s power is absolute, Eliana must negotiate a careful path between pleasing Samsu, avoiding the wrath of his wife, keeping her family safe and staying true to herself. Her life, and the lives of everyone she loves, could depend on it.

This gripping story about love, loyalty, family and courage in the face of oppression will have you hooked from beginning to end.
