Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his New York Times bestselling novels Wilbur Smith has captured the drama of a vast continent. Now, in his most magnificent tale yet, he takes us back to 1884 and into the dusty city of Khartoum, where an English family and besieged populace wait for rescue--or for death...

IN A CLASH OF TWO CULTURES

They've come from out of the shifting sands and down from ancient mountains. Mounted on horse and camel, carrying gleaming swords and plundered rifles, the sons of Allah are led by a holy warrior imbued with jihad, driving his army of thousands to wipe out the last Englishmen from the isolated Nile city...

A FAMILY STOOD STRONG

But in Khartoum is a legendary British general, a brilliant, mercenary trader, a beautiful woman and a courageous soldier whose fates have become one. They know that time is running out and rescue is improbable. So they prepare for one last stand--and the beginning of an epic journey of survival...

WHILE LOVERS AND FIGHTERS RISKED EVERYTHING

From a passionate rivalry for a woman to an unforgettable face-off between warriors, TRIUMPH OF THE SUN is adventure fiction writ large--alive with the sounds of throngs, the terror of battle, and the mystical fire of human courage in the darkest moments of all.

"Smith is without rival."

--Tulsa World
