    Desert God is the long awaited sequel to Wilbur Smith’s Ancient Egypt series of novels featuring the genius eunuch Taita and his adventures.

    Summary of the Book

    Egypt faces the threat of war once again. Its feared enemy, the diabolical Hyksos, scheme an attack. However, they are about to face a foe whose keen intellect they can never begin to challenge. Taita, a genius sage, brilliant scientist and intuitive strategist is a freed slave and one of the Pharoah’s best advisors. He sets off on an epic journey, risking everything to secure peace for his beloved land. His quest takes him to Arabia, and to the magical city of Babylon. He is accompanied by the Pharaoh’s gorgeous sisters, and his plan will seal the Hyksos’ fate once and for all. This is the book fans have long waited for, and finally they can witness Taita in his element: the arid sands of the desert dunes where his brilliant scheming alone can keep his beloved people alive.

    Hurried end

    The book is nothing compared to Smith's earlier writings.
    It gets far too stretched in middle and then end is very hurried and description of places is very vague. To be true the end, if we can call its an end, is too abrupt, too simple & leaves a feeling of foreboding.
    Smith seems more occupied by his girls being naked all the time and could have dedicated a page or two to his girl's finding love & experiencing sex to make it more alluring.
    Certain parts detach you from novel and are well l...

    A WS Disappointment

    I’m an avid Wilbur Smith fan. I have read practically all of his novels; some, several times over. His Egyptian series (River God, The Seventh Scroll, The Quest, and Warlock) were exceptionally good and really riveting reads. When I heard about another in the series, Desert God, I was full of expectation that this would follow with the same or similar enthralling adventures, but it is unfortunately a damp squib in comparison to the other 4. It isn’t even written in a typically WS style in tha...
