Storyline

King Silas Benjamin came to power in a mythical battle against the rival neighbor republic of Gath, capitalizing brilliantly and ruthlessly on his near-godly image. Farm-boy David Shepherd performs as well, saving Silas's crown prince in another epic battle, but is too noble and naive to aspire personal benefit rather then devoutly serve king and country. Nevertheless, after Silas decides to abuse David's legend, the hero is drawn into palace intrigues culminating into coup plans against Silas. Written by KGF Vissers

Great Drama
18 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show surprised me. It was absolutely amazing. Watching this show brings out a lot of emotions. I thought the advertising for it was good so i gave the show a chance and i am glad i did. At points i couldn't stop smiling then there were points when i wanted to cry then there were points when i just had chills. I haven seen a drama this good in a while. I would defiantly recommend this show to everyone i knew. The acting was amazing. You could tell there was a lot of drama to come between father and son. It is one show you do not want to miss. Plus there is the benefit of there not being any other good shows on that time slot.
