Found this (in excellent used condition) on Play.com. Arrived today, just registering ready for reading. It ranks number 47 on the Whitcouls Top 100 List which I am trying to read my way through.
It is also Book 1 in Wilbur Smith's Egyptian Novels Series.
"Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. A legend shattered by greed...
Through the voice of the incomparable Taita, a formidably gifted eunuch slave, Wilbur Smith draws the reader into a magnificent, richly imagined saga that explodes with all the drama, mystery and rage of a bygone time. River God is a masterpiece from a story teller at the height of his powers.
'Grand mythical material... the set pieces are fabulous in the true sense and the narrative careers along as swimmingly as Isis herself.'
Time Literary Supplement
'An epic of sex, death and intrigue in the Valley of the Kings... richly written... packs in the action... excellent!'
David Profumo, Daily Telegraph"

I've just finished this amazing book (and left it rather battered, from carrying it around with me everywhere). Wilbur Smith is a master of his trade. He takes the reader on such an epic journey. This book has everything, authentic historical feel, romance, drama, suspense, action...I really felt I was in Ancient Egypt experiencing all I was reading! The charachters are brilliant! I love their relationships with each other. I also love the way Mr Smith puts the charahters in jeopardy and skillfully navagate them around it to the other side! The Authous note at the end has left me very intregued. Is it true? This book is a definate keeper!
