Críticas:

"The brutality of life in ancient times is everywhere evident in Taita's tale, which involves fatal intrigue at every turn. It's clear Smith knows his subject: his graphic depiction of lust, bloodletting, politics, and, in Taita's case, honor is firmly grounded in rich details that evoke the period." --Booklist

"Gallops swiftly through the action and flying blood his fans have come to relish. Brightly colored, sweeping escapism." --Kirkus

"A rich, compelling look back in time [to] when history and myth intermingled." --San Francisco Chronicle

"A grand tale of intrigue, deception, true love and exile." --Denver Post

"An epic of sex, death and intrigue in the Valley of the Kings ... richly written ... packs in the action ... excellent." --Weekend Telegraph

"Superlatively evocative....Smith`s descriptions hardly falter over 500 pages and [River God] has relentless momentum." --Observer

"Big, brave and blockbusting ... brilliantly detailed descriptions of life on the Nile." --Mail On Sunday

"Grand mythical material.... the set pieces are fabulous." --Times Literary Supplement

"High adventure . . . There is never a lull in this majestic novel, one filled to overflowing with passion, rage, treachery, barbarism, prolonged excitement and endless passages of sheer, exquisite color." --Washington Post

"An epic... Smith joins the ranks of one of the grand masters of twentieth-century novels." --Tulsa World

"Vivid and fascinating ... packed with passion, war, intrigue and revenge...The details are intimate, inspiring ... The author makes you see it, hear it--even smell it." --The Orlando Sentinel

"Vivid detail... Sumptuous storytelling... A feast!" --Detroit Free Press

"Involves fatal intrigue at every turn. It's clear Smith knows his subject: his graphic depiction of lust, bloodletting, politics, and, in Taita's case, honor is firmly grounded in rich details that evoke the period." --Booklist

"Compulsively readable historical novel...containing all the standard elements of great adventure--intrigue, romance, greed, cruelty, and furious action." --Publishers Weekly

"A full-blooded epic." --The Times

"A page-turner...few novelists can write action scenes that all but leap off the page the way Smith can...his detailed portrait of ancient Egypt is fascinating." --Anniston Star (TX)

"Like a good action movie, the book ends with a show-down...well-written and entertaining." --Lexington Herald-Leader (KY)

"Compulsively readable...contains intrigue, romance, greed, cruelty, and furious action...rewarding and satisfying." --El Paso Herald-Post (TX)

"An epic novel of ancient Egypt, a great adventure with all the right ingredients: victories and defeats, secrets and revelations, life and death, reverence and godlessness, hate and love." --The Des Moines Register

Reseña del editor:

A recreation of the grandeur of ancient Egypt follows the fortunes of the clever and scheming eunuch Taita; the beautiful Lostris, a lord's daughter; and Tanus, an ambitious soldier. Reissue.
