Game of Thrones meets ancient Egypt in this magnificent epic from one of the world’s biggest-selling authors—a novel that conjures the magic, mystery, romance, and bloody intrigue of a fascinating lost world . . .

On the gleaming banks of the Nile, the brilliant Taita—slave and advisor to the Pharaoh—finds himself at the center of a vortex of passion, intrigue, and danger. His quest to destroy the Hyksos army and form an alliance with Crete takes him on an epic journey up the Nile, through Arabia and the magical city of Babylon, and across the open seas. With the future of Egypt itself on his shoulders, Taita enters a world where the line between loyalty and betrayal shifts like the desert sands, evil enemies await in the shadows, and death lingers on the edges of darkness.

“A thrilling tale . . . as magical as it is enlightening—not just about history, but about the heart of a heroic man.”—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Labyrinth

Wilbur Smith is one of the world's most popular novelists, with more than 125 million copies of his books sold worldwide in twenty-six languages. A native of central Africa, he divides his time between Cape Town and London.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ghost Written This is a total flop- can't go less than one star otherwise I would give it NONE. Definitely NOT in the style of Wilbur Smith's other novels and definitely not up to his expected calibre. Do not waste your time and money on this, it is simply TERRIBLE. Has to be ghost written as it does not even come close to wilbur. Stick with River God and Seventh Scroll and you will do fine. Verdict: epic fail

Editorial Reviews

“What’s the recipe for commercial fiction success? Start with solid history along with plenty of action, sex, and brutal violence...Smith’s fans in general and fans of Taita from the Egyptian series will be pleased.”
