  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Chris Teel | 2/19/2014

    " This book is historically accurate and chock full of cultural and historical information. Not only that, the book present a wonderfully paced plot, wonderful characters, several spectacular surprises, and a heart-warming ending that even the hardiest testosterone lover would get misty at. Also, I just reread the book, and I loved even more the second time around. Really, if you haven't read this book yet, do. "

    " Think I need to read more of his books, embarrassed that I read this in 2005 and not read another of his books even though I enjoyed it. "

    " Another great historical fiction from WS. Set in the Sudanese Sahara during British colonial rule. This is the best I have read from WS in a long time. An interesting, informative, and exciting book. "

    " I thought that this latest book for Wilbur Smith was abit like a few other books and the ending was abit abrupt. However it is a good story and a good introduction for someone who has not read any Wilbur Smith!! "
