River God
River God | Wilbur Smith
River God, the first in Wilbur Smith's blockbusting Egyptian Novels, is a thrilling adventure set amid the mysteries of ancient Egypt. Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. A legend shattered by greed. Now the Valley of the Kings lies ravaged by war, drained of its lifeblood as weak men inherit the cherished crown. In the city of Thebes at the Festival of Osiris, loyal subjects of the Pharaoh gather to pay homage to their leader. But Taita - a wise and formidably gifted eunuch slave, sees him only as a symbol of a kingdom's fading glory. Beside Taita stand his proteges, Lostris, the beautiful fourteen-year-old daughter of his master Lord Intef; and Tanus, proud, young army officer, who has vowed to avenge the death - at Intef's hand - of his father, and seize Lostris as his prize. Together they share a dream - to restore the majesty of the Pharaoh of Pharaohs on the glittering banks of the Nile.

I read this book when I was about 12/13 and completely enamoured with ancient Egypt. I fell in love with the characters. It‘s the only Wilbur Smith book I have ever read and the best one I could have chosen to read!

Never read anything by Wilbur Smith. This is an ambitious one. Not sure what I'm getting into.

Vansa They're very easy read , fast paced thrillers. Quite fun ! 2y

I don't have a high opinion of Wilbur Smith. In fact this is the only book of his which is a pick for me. Taita is just one of those characters you fall in love with and he does a great job bringing ancient Egypt life. A great balance of action and romance, this is excellent escapism. Just don't bother with the sequel's they are terrible. Adult Content.
