    Wilbur Smith(Author) Mike Grady(Reader)

A novel of Ancient Egypt from the bestselling author of River God. Wilbur Smith is a master at the helm of one of the greatest stories of all time.

On the banks of the Nile, a hero will rise.

Across the lush plains of Egypt, Taita, a freed eunuch slave, wears his authority lightly. Not only is he the close advisor to the Pharaoh, but he is guardian to Pharaoh Tamose’s two teenage sisters, the young beauties Tehuti and Bekatha.

But the kingdom is not at peace. They have been fighting Southern Egypt’s constant and historic enemy, the Hyksos people in the north, since time began. To finally crush them, Pharaoh must turn to his most trusted friend.

Taita, philosopher, poet and expert strategist, has a plan that will see Egypt destroy the Hyksos army and form a coveted alliance with Crete in one move. This plan will take him, his expedition commander Zaras, and their mighty warriors on a perilous journey up the Nile, through Arabia to the magical city of Babylon, then across the open seas to Crete.

The many dangers will cost lives and time, and they will meet battle and betrayal head on. But Taita must not forget his two charges, the spirited young princesses, whose attraction to the very warriors who lead the fight threatens Taita’s meticulous plan and the future of Egypt itself.

Review Text

  • By David on 4 May 2017

    Having read all the previous books I found this rather laboured and a little too focused on the main character, by the end of the book I had had enough of his self importance. While I enjoyed the tale as a form of entertainment I would not have been sorry if I had not read the book, in truth following reviews I was going to give it a miss but decided to give it a try in moment of weakness. Not one of Wilbur's best books and the theme has travelled it's journey one is left feeling this was a book too far.

    Unfortunately Wilbur Smith seems to have lost his way with this book. The plot wanders, the characters are dull. There are so many inaccuracies with characters and story lines that it is hard to believe it was written by the same author as his previous works. Come on Wilbur, sort it out.

    Up to standard if you like Wilbur Smith your like this boom

    I chose this rating because I felt that the book was rushed and almost written by two different authors. It was still enjoyable but not quite as much as the earlier series.

    Probably the dullest in the series but that still makes it good in my eyes

  • By GraandJane on 23 August 2017

    A good read that rattles along, rather far fetched and not as good as some of the others in the series but good never the less

    I've loved all of Smith's Egyptian series but this is a story too far. This instalment has no coherent storyline and is more of a vehicle for the vanity of the main character than anything else

    Another spell binding book by Wilbur Smith, one day I will stArt reading them all again and am sure I will find them just as enjoyable.
