Publisher's Summary

At the festival of Osiris, loyal subjects of the pharaoh gather to pay homage to their leader. Only Taita, a wise and formidably gifted enunch slave, sees him as a symbol of the kingdom's fading glory.

Danger surounds all those who oppose the ruling elite. But together with his protégés, Lostris, the beautiful 14-year-old daughter of his master Lord Intef, and the proud young army officer Tanus, Taita begins the long and dangerous journey towards his own glorious dream: to restore the majesty of the Pharaoh of Pharaohs on the glittering banks of the nile.

    "A little disappointed"

    Beautiful story and Tahita is still my most loved book character. BUT the reading is abridged and missing a lot of the story!!! Some of my very most favourite parts have been taken out. It's still a pleasure to listen to but I would recommend reading to the book witch is more complete.

    "fantastic story"

    if you like the Egyptian theme you will not be able to stop listening to the end, you are taken in to the story and it is like you are part of it. fantastic read.

    "River God"

    I found this to be a very good listen, so much so it inspired me to purchase the others in the series. It was most intresting following the main character Tiahta on his journey. I would recommend this book.

    "Emotional roller coaster"

    This well written story, equally well narrated, draws on the whole spectrum of human emotions. In parts it is chilling and brutal, and in others romantic and seductive. If you like historical drama, you'll love River God.
