Format: Paperback
It's rare that I find myself in tears reading a novel, but this one had me blubbing more than once. I simply loved this book. It's a real page turner. And for me what brought it to that next level, beyond your normal everyday reads were the characters. This book is all about the characters. From the evil and arrogant Amenhotep to the honorable and idealistic Josef, and beautiful Tiye, each and every one feels real, with real goals and real emotions. But most of all it was the character of Shiri herself that brought this book to life. From shepherd girl to slave, to lover to ... well too many spoilers already! The book is in three parts and each part has a unique feel. The first is fast paced and full of action, the second a tender developing love story and third part `the Red Queen' is serious tissues at the ready time! This book is something special.

If only more stories like this made their way to the screen!

I'm not sure if I am the only one, but I really feel there has been a lack of good films with well-written stories for some time, which when you come across a skilled writer like Taylor, one wonders why this seems to be such a big problem. This story is definitely worthy of a wider audience. It is well researched, beautifully written and composed of so many winning aspects to make up what is a compelling and thoroughly enjoyable story. The characterisations are strong and the descriptions vivid without being over stated. The pace is free-flowing and the story-lines are neatly knitted together.

I highly recommend this book, it will whisk you away on an adventure.

I was immediately pulled into this action packed novel and I just couldn't put it down. The writing was fantastic, the storyline was extremely engrossing and the characters were totally believable. I was so drawn into the story that I felt I was another character in it seeing everything firsthand. There were tons of varying emotions packed throughout these pages and I found myself bracing for what would happen next. Mr. Taylor is one author you need to keep an eye on because he's going places. I highly recommend this story...

I’ve always been enamoured with Ancient Egypt and early civilizations so this story appealed to me. Recently I’ve watched all of the Spartacus series and the plights of slaves were fresh in my mind when I read Shiri. This well written story thrusts the main characters into harsh situations with dire consequences where personal wishes must be set aside for loftier ideals. Gritty, lusty, violent, and suspenseful. A Pharaonic tapestry of blood and deception weaved into an underlying love story.

Format: Paperback
When rampaging Egyptian forces led by the cruel and sadistic Amenhotep raid her village, murdering, burning or enslaving all she loves, a young shepherd girl decides it's time to fight back! Set against the aftermath of the battle of 'Armegiddo' and the rise of the new and mysterious ‘Jealous God’ this book literally has everything. Love, war, intrigue and even a bit of religious controversy thrown in! Shiri is is one of those reads that's guaranteed to keep you up all night.

As a fan of Bernard Cornwell etc I've probably read more historical thrillers than is good for me. In terms of maintaining a steady plot and well developed characters this book is as good as I've read. Wry,witty and dark when necessary. A good old yarn that belies the rich historical context presented. Highly recommendable.

Historical fantasy fiction isn't usually my choice of genre but Shiri is written with skill and it's an enjoyable read. It must have taken a lot of research to write this, but the narrative flows easily without being burdened by historical facts. It's well edited too and it's good to see that kind of attention to detail from an author. Well done Dave!

With Shiri, the author has found that perfect blend between of not being over-descriptive while also not being bland or ambiguous. What I mean by this is that he knows exactly when to include vivid descriptions when the book requires, yet also how to execute a more suspenseful feeling when the it's most beneficial to the scene. This blend is proof to me that D.S. Taylor has the skill of a seasoned writer and that he's mastered a lot of literary elements that define an exceptional book and separate it from an 'good' one.

There's really nothing bad that I can point out about Shiri; I love the plot, the characters, the environment and most of all, the well-refined writing style that is used to express everything. I also have always been a big fan of everything related to Egypt and for the author to incorporate such a strong Egyptian influence into the book, and with such accuracy; well, that's a huge bonus for me and a big part of what kept me so intrigued from the very beginning. For these reasons, I can't possibly give this book any less than the 5 stars that it deserves. I'll be keeping an eager eye out for future releases
