“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly book blogger meme hosted over at Breaking The Spine. Each Wednesday you put the spotlight on an upcoming future release that you are eagerly awaiting.
This week, the spotlight focuses on:
EGYPT IS UNDER ATTACK.
Pharaoh Tamose lies mortally wounded. The ancient city of Luxor is surrounded, All seems lost.
Taita prepares for the enemy’s final, fatal push. The ex-slave, now general of Tamose’s armies, is never more ingenious than when all hope is dashed. And this is Egypt’s most desperate hour.
With the timely arrival of an old ally, the tide is turned and the Egyptian army feasts upon its retreating foe. But upon his victorious return to Luxor, Taita is seized and branded a traitor. Tamose is dead and a poisonous new era has begun. The new Pharaoh has risen.
Pharaoh Utteric is young, weak and cruel, and threatened by Taita’s influence within the palace especially his friendship with Utteric’s younger and worthier brother, Ramases. With Taita’s imprisonment, Ramases is forced to make a choice: help Taita escape and forsake his brother, or remain silent and condone Utteric’s tyranny. To a good man like Ramases, there is no choice. Taita must be set free, Utteric must be stopped and Egypt must be reclaimed.
Pharoah is a new novel from Wilbur Smith that returns to Egypt. If you read my post on my top series, then you would know that Wilbur Smith’s ‘The Egyptian Series’ is one of my favourites.
Pharoah is expected to be released September 22nd 2016!
