The WORLDWIDE Bestseller.

A novel of Ancient Egypt from the bestselling author of River God. Wilbur Smith is a master at the helm of one of the greatest stories of all time.

On the banks of the Nile, a hero will rise

Egypt is under threat. Taita, a freed slave and the Pharaoh's closest advisor, must create a master plan to crush the kingdom's historic enemy and return Egypt to its former glory.

He must call on his powers as both tactician and warrior to lead a great army up the Nile, through Arabia to the magical city of Babylon, then across the open seas to Crete.

This army will meet battle and betrayal head on. But their greatest challenge will not be found on the battleground and it will threaten not only Taita's plan, but the very future of Egypt.
