Desert God: A Novel of Ancient Egypt

Desert God: A Novel of Ancient Egypt - Wilbur Smith I loved going back to the world of Taita and particulary, ancient Egypt. There have been several reviews complaining of Taita's character, how he is so vain and full of himself. I guess I was a bit used to it because, even from the beginning, he was always like that, although not to the extent as he is in this book. It's been awhile since I read River God, so I could be mistaken.

Yes, Taita is definitely a legend in his own mind, but I still love him and enjoyed this book. It wasn't as good as River God, but it was still thrilling. I found the ending to be a tad anti-climatic, but it leaves and opening for the story to continue and I, for one, am looking forward to the next book.
