In the land of the Sun gods

pharohPharaoh by adventure writer Wilber Smith continues  his series about dynastic struggles in ancient Egypt.  Tamose, the reigning  pharaoh has died leaving his eldest son, Utteric, as heir.  Utteric, unfortunately, is a coward and hedonist.  To secure his claim to the throne, he seeks to rid himself of his main challengers to power, his father’s factotum, Taita, and his younger brother, Rameses.  Kirkus Reviews found this ‘swords-and-sandals” epic is “no worse or better” than the earlier entries in the series.  Never let it be said that Wilbur Smith is an inconsistent writer!
