Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For Tanus, the fair-haired young lion of a warrior, the gods have decreed that he will lead Egypt's army in a bold attempt to reunite the Kingdom's shared halves. But Tanus will have to defy the same gods to attain the reward they have forbidden him, an object more prized than battle's glory: possession of the Lady Lostris, a rare beauty with skin the color of oiled ceder--destined for the adoration of a nation, and the love of one extraordinary man.

International bestselling author Wilbur Smith, creator of two dozen highly acclaimed novels, draws readers into a magnificent, richly imagined saga. Exploding with all the drama, mystery and rage of a bygone time, River God is a masterpiece from a storyteller at the height of his powers.

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Wilbur Smith--author of 24 novels, published in 27 countries--comes a maginificent, richly detailed saga of ancient Egypt. The slave of a powerful Pharaoh plots to overthrow his master and lead his fellow slaves to power. "A grand tale of intrigue, deception, true love and exile".--Denver Post.

I really enjoyed this book and would even read it a second and third time. It has all my favorite elements that make a good story, magic, mystery, action, love, history, fiction, and it's set in Eygpt... Complete lose yourself page turner!

What an adventure! History comes alive with this tale of an Egytian slave who reaches a place in society that allows him to be a part of the inner circle. Makes you yearn for a visit to the pyramids.
