Game of Thrones meets Ancient Egypt in this magnificent epic from one of the world's biggest-selling authors. Conjuring the magic, mystery, and bloody intrigue of a fascinating lost world, Desert God presents Wilbur Smith at the helm of one of the greatest stories of all time. On the gleaming banks of the Nile, the brilliant Taita-a freed slave and advisor to the Pharaoh-devises a plan to destroy Egypt's most feared enemy, the mighty Hyksos. His quest will take him on an epic journey up the ancient river, through Arabia and the magical city of Babylon, and across the open seas-all in the company of the Pharaoh's exquisite sisters. With the future of the kingdom itself on his shoulders, Taita plunges into a world where the line between loyalty and betrayal shifts like the desert sands, evil waits in the shadows, and death lingers on the edges of darkness. Hundreds of millions have fallen in love with the magic of Wilbur Smith. In Desert God, he is at the peak of his powers, transporting readers to an extraordinary time and place. This is a novel of supreme adventure, blazing action, heart-racing romance, and a sense of history so real that you will feel the dunes moving beneath you and the Nile lapping at your feet.

Far better than the Quest, but not in the same league as River God, Wilbur Smith really makes history come alive again through the eyes of Taita. The descriptions of battle are not for the squeamish. The narration is excellent.
