Another great book in the egyptian series with Taita. I enjoyed it and couldn't put it down. I also read the seventh scroll and thought the author was very clever in bringing the story to modern times and tying it together.
This is the sequel to "River God" by Wilbur Smith who is one of the most acclaimed adventure writers today. In the wake of a 60 year old reign of the kingdoms of Egypt, two young pharoahs have risen to claim power, but only one will succeed.
to me this was a difficult book. i had expected better as the first book in the series was one of my favorite books. For me, this was too gory. it is all about ancient Egypt after the death of the gratest Pharoah.
This is the tale of Prince Nefer, Thamose' grandson, and the ultimate battle he must endure to regain the throne of Egypt. Smith's storytelling makes you believe you can feel the heat and sands of the desert. Great read!
This is a great book if you like historical fiction. It has a ton of action, a little bit of sex and lakes of blood. The ending is absolutely ferocious and not for the faint of heart. I would recommend this book to those who like historical fiction and a book that really shakes you up in places.
