Summary

Fame and popularity breed envy in high places, and the adulation of the mob is fickle. They often take as much pleasure in tearing down the idols that they have grown tired of as they did in elevating them in the first place. It is safer by far to live unseen and unremarked, as I always attempt to do.

An ancient kingdom. An incredible destiny.  

Taita is a humble slave, an expert in art, poetry, medicine and engineering as well as keeping important secrets. He is the most treasured possession of Lord Intef. Yet when Intef's beautiful daughter, Lostris, is married to the Pharaoh, Taita is commanded to follow her and swiftly finds himself deeper than he ever could have imagined in a world of deception and treachery.  

But outside the palace, the great kingdom of Egypt is divided and in even greater danger. Enemies threaten on all sides, and only Taita holds the power to save them all....

The first audiobook in the epic Egyptian Series.

A very good read/listen

Having been an avid fan of Wilbur smith for many years I took the opportunity of repurchasing river god now on audible having listen to taita and his mistress the story sounds anew and takes the listener back in time as if you are part of this story. I can thoroughly recommend anybody to purchase and listen to River God as it is one of the best stories that I have ever listened to.

egyptian history at it's best

A e
well performed stoy from the period of hychsos wars told by pharao's physiscian and confidante. less persoal than Sinue the Egyptian by Mika Waltari written in the 1960 ies. A good read with suspence and some historic correctness.would probably be well liked by men
