The Triumph of the Sun (Courtney Family Adventures) by Wilbur Smith

From one of the worlds most celebrated and bestselling novelists comes an epic adventure in the spirit and tradition of Monsoon and Blue Horizon. nbsp; It is 1884, and in the Sudan, decades of brutal misgovernment by the ruling Egyptian Khedive in Cairo precipitates a bloody rebellion and Holy War. The charismatic new religious leader, the Mahdi or Expected One, has gathered his forces of Arab warlords in preparation for a siege on the city of Khartoum. The British are forced to intervene to protect their national interests and to attempt to rescue the hundreds of British subjects stranded in the city. nbsp; Along with hundreds of others, British trader and businessman Ryder Courtney is trapped in the capital city of Khartoum under the orders of the infamously iron-willed General Charles George Gordon. It is here that he meets skilled soldier and swordsman Captain Penrod Ballantyne of the 10th Hussars and the British Consul, David Benbrook, as well as Benbrooks three beautiful daughters. Against the vivid and bloody backdrop of the Arabs fierce and merciless siege these three powerful men must fight to survive. nbsp; Rich with vibrant historical detail and infused with his inimitable powers of storytelling, The Triumph of the Sun is Wilbur Smith at his masterful best.
