Read full description of the books Garden of Madness:The untold story of King Nebuchadnezzar s daughter
For seven years the Babylonian princess Tiamat has waited for the mad king Nebuchadnezzar to return to his family and to his kingdom. Driven from his throne to live as a beast, he prowls his luxurious Hanging Gardens, secreted away from the world.
Since her treaty marriage at a young age, Tia has lived an opulent yet oppressive life in the palace. But her husband has since died and she relishes her newfound independence. When a nobleman is found murdered in the palace, Tia must discover who is responsible for the macabre death, even if her own freedom is threatened.
As the queen plans to wed Tia to yet another prince, the powerful mage Shadir plots to expose the family s secret and set his own man on the throne. Tia enlists the help of a reluctant Jewish captive, her late husband s brother Pedaiah, who challenges her notions of the gods even as he opens her heart to both truth and love.
In a time when few gave their hearts to Yahweh, Tia must decide if she is willing to risk everything her possessions, her gods, and her very life for the Israelites one God. Madness, sorcery, and sinister plots mingle like an alchemist s deadly potion as Tia chooses whether to risk all to save the kingdom and her family.

Read information about the authorFrom her earliest childhood, there was nothing Tracy loved better than stepping into another world between the pages of a book. From dragons and knights, to the wonders of Narnia, that passion has never abated, and to Tracy, opening any novel is like stepping again through the wardrobe, into the thrilling unknown. With every book she writes, she wants to open a door like that, and invite readers to be transported with her into a place that captivates.
Tracy started her first novel at the age of eight and has been hooked on writing ever since. After attending Philadelphia Biblical University, she earned a B.A. in English Literature at Rowan University. She then spent ten years writing drama presentations for church ministry. Over 10,000 people have attended drama productions she has written.
A lifelong interest in history and mythology has led Tracy to extensive research into ancient Greece and other myth systems, and shaped her desire to shine the light of the gospel into the cultures of the past.
More than two thousand years ago, the Colossus of Rhodes towered above an ancient Greek harbor – a wonder to all who sailed the Aegean. In the shadow of this Colossus, people lived and loved and struggled for purpose. It was a city glittering with wealth and obsessed with power, but God was still at work in the hearts of people, calling them to understand that a Redeemer was coming.
Tracy is thrilled to begin the Seven Wonders Series with Shadow of Colossus, and it’s her hope that in escaping to Rhodes with her, readers will feel they’ve walked along the harbor beneath the mighty statue themselves, felt the white sand and blue sea under their feet, and met with the Redeeming God who is sovereign over the entire drama of human history.
