They've come from out of the shifting sands and down from ancient mountains. Mounted on horse and camel, carrying gleaming swords and plundered rifles, the sons of Allah are led by a holy warrior imbued with jihad,driving his army of thousands to wipe out the last Englishmen from the isolated Nile city...

Along with hundreds of others, British trader and businessman Ryder Courtney is trapped in the capital city of Khartoum. In Khartoum, the fates of a legendary British general, a brilliant, mercenary trader, a beautiful woman and a courageous soldier will become one. They know that time is running out and rescue is improbable. So they prepare for one last stand--and the beginning of an epic journey of survival...

From a passionate rivalry for a woman to an unforgettable face-off between warriors, Wilbur Smith's The Triumph of the Sun is adventure fiction writ large--alive with the sounds of throngs, the terror of battle, and the mystical fire of human courage in the darkest moments of all.

    " 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!! "
