Another good book for Egyptian lovers. This is the tale of ancient Gods. It is about Tanus, a warrior and a beautiful woman, Lady Lustris, who would be queen. Travel with this author into ancient Egypt: the battles, the passion, their worship and everyday lives. Well researched fiction novel-if you like the history of the Valley of the Kings, this book will take you there. Historically accurate. A masterpiece in my opinion! A well written story, full of drama and mystery. I loved it!

One of the most interesting books I have ever read. Wilbur Smith takes you there. Exquisitly written with a true flavor of the time. I would read anything he has written. (I try to). One of my very favorite authors and books.

Lostris, a new princess of ancient Egypt, is in love with the dashing army officer Tanus, whom she has known since childhood. But a nobleman who ruined Tanus's father and schemes to do the same to Tanus gets in the way. Determined to win Lostris and win revenge for his father, Tanus sets out with his army to rid the kingdom of the bandit clans that leech the wealth of the kingdom. The story is told from the perspective of Taita, a eunuch slave. Strutting about with all the substance of cardboard, the tale's comic book characters manage to have talents and characteristics that emerge just in the nick of time to move the story along. Narrator Dick Hill does his best to breathe some life into the story line. Quite often, Taita's narrative comes to a dead halt as he explains some fact or ritual that usually has little relevance to the action. Still, it is these compelling details of ancient Egyptian life that are the saving grace of the story.

I'll be honest - I'm sort of a skeptic when it comes to reading books written by male authors, but since I was interested in learning about ancient Egypt, I decided to give it a try. It was surprisingly good, and I've read it quite a number of times already. :) Definately one to check out!
