LoveReading View on The Triumph of the Sun

He’s one of the best storytellers around and if you want an epic adventure then look no further. Existing fans will devour this even though to my mind, it’s not as good as some of his earlier blockbusters. New fans will enjoy the fast-paced action and flowing writing style. For me, there’s a time and a place for a Wilbur Smith and that’s lounging in the sun in some exotic location or just curled up on a sofa at home.

The Triumph of the Sun Synopsis

Queen Victoria's reign is in full flourish, her Empire expanding and her colonies stretching across the globe. In Africa, the land proves rich with minerals, and the trading companies continue to cross the seas and grow. On the banks of the river Nile, two families meet: the Courtneys and the Ballantynes. Both influential, powerful, and determined to dominate, their encounter provides the background for Wilbur Smith's dramatic and powerful novel.
