A Dangerous Prophet for Dangerous Times!
(Now joined by Abdiel’s audiobook narration. Samples below.)


Israel. 9th-century BC. Jezebel has killed the true prophets of the Lord, and Elijah must flee her wrath.

But he is not alone. Embraced by a shapeshifting goddess, counseled by a great angel, he is empowered to call down fire from Heaven!

In the spirit of Dante, Shakespeare, and Homer, this 12-book epic relives the stunning miracles of the great prophet as described in the Old Testament—fed by ravens, raising the dead, commanding the rain, calling down fire from Heaven, outrunning horses, ascending to Heaven.

But along with all this, the author weaves a rich thread of mythological influences: shapeshifting goddesses, shamanic journeys, dueling dragons, Queen Jezebel’s seductions, and dissension in the ranks of King Ahab’s bodyguard.

Raunchy yet reverent, and now joined by the author’s own audiobook narration, this timeless tale takes wing in the poet’s pen, the poet’s voice!


“An epic tale, Biblically based, but with considerable writer’s freedom that makes the book wholly entertaining.”
San Francisco Review of Books

“Fun, interesting, and entertaining, with elements of a heroic quest, pure fantasy, and sexy romance.”
Karen Siddall


“A monumental epic poem about the struggle between Elijah—with a little angelic support and a few friends—against Ahab and Jezebel and all their armies, priests, and whatever supernatural support the priests could provide… The telling was riveting, and you don’t need to know the story ahead of time to be moved by it.”
Kit Donner


“LeRoy has a great talent for writing an epic poem, and his hypnotic voice lends grandly to the narration of the story.”
Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews, Top 10 Books of 2018
