Summary
A thrilling new instalment in Wilbur Smith's beloved Egyptian series. 'A blazing trip into the land of the Pharaohs from a giant of a writer' Australian Women's Weekly Egypt is under attack. All seems lost. After snatching victory from almost-certain defeat, ex-slave Taita, general of Egypt's armies, returns in triumph to the ancient city of Luxor. But the old ruler has died and a new Pharaoh has risen - Utteric, young, weak and cruel. Threatened by Taita's friendship with his younger and worthier brother, Rameses, Utteric imprions Taita for treason. To a good man like Rameses, there is no choice: both Taita and Egypt must be set free. From the glittering temples of Luxor to the Citadel of Sparta, Pharaoh is an intense and powerful novel magnificently transporting you to a time of threat, blood and glory. 'An old-fashioned adventure ... [Wilbur's] legions of fans will demand this latest in the series in order to follow the next chapter in Taita's very long, exciting life' Booklist
