This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
On the shores of the Nile, the fate of a kingdom rests in one hero's hands ...
When the ancient kingdom of Egypt comes under threat, the Pharaoh turns to Taita - freed slave, poet, philosopher and his most trusted advisor - to finally defeat their historic enemy, the Hyksos.
Taita has a cunning plan that will not only deliver a crushing blow to the Hyksos, but will also form a coveted alliance with Crete. In charge of the Pharoah's sisters Tehuti and Bekatha as well as a mighty army, Taita embarks on a perilous journey up the Nile, through Arabia to the magical city of Babylon, and across the seas.
But beyond battle and betrayal, there is another danger - the spirited young princesses' attraction to two of the warriors leading the fight could not only ruin Taita's plan but threaten the future of Egypt itself.

This is not a book written by Wilbur Smith
Have read every book Wilbur has published ( 5 times at least each ) and this book was definitely not written by Him.
What a sham, this is some sort of ghost writer or another author writing on his behalf.
I was so disappointed, it is rubbish.
I had been waiting so long for it to be released and this atrocity arrives.
I know we have all been dreading when Wilbur is not going to be capable of writing anymore, but to have this published under His name is sacrilege.
Wilbur if you read this don't let them publish any more twaddle under your name just bow out gracefully.
Remember all those amazing stories that have kept me awake for years.
Dont buy it !
Not written by wilbur smith and is just a waste of money
Wilbur does not disappoint in this awesome new instalment of the Egypt series. It takes us back to the original style of River God with our beloved Taita leading us on a tale of familiar characters fulfilling duty to please and appease the gods and to save our very Egypt. A page-turner that you can't put down until the very end; be prepared to be enthralled.
