This was similar to the Queen Esther story in the bible and it is a modern day re-telling of it in a way.
So your probably thinking that since its a Queen Esther story that the commandant is going to turn out to be good, and save everyone. Wrong, yes he does save some people at the risk of his own life, but he let so many others die for so long even though he knew it was wrong. He only started helping protect people once Hadassah was bring it to his attention and saying hey this isn't okay.

Overall was a disappointing read with a few bright spots that made me not completely hate it.

The sole purpose of this book seems to be to convert Jews to Christianity.
