Overview

Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. A legend shattered by greed....
Now the Valley of Kings lies ravaged by war, drained of its lifeblood, as weak men inherit the cherished crown.
For Tanus, the fair-haired young lion of a warrior, the gods have decreed that he will lead Egypt's army in a bold attempt to reunite the Kingdom's shattered halves. But Tanus will have to defy the same gods to attain the reward they have forbidden him, an object more prized than battle's glory: possession of the Lady Lostris, a rare beauty with skin the color of oiled cedar - destined for the adoration of a nation, and the love of one extraordinary man.

Absolutely loved this audio book! The narrator does a great job interpreting the various characters and their accents. I first read Shaara's book back in college years ago and loved hearing it again. One of the best historical fiction books ever written.
