Still new to Wilber Smith and enjoying his work enormously. If adventure is your thing then look no further than this guy. In his second novel we pick up a few years after where we left of in 'When the lion feeds' following spontaneous adventurer Sean Courtney. War is rife is South Africa and we travel with Sean into the Boer war. But soon we learn that a far more bitter battle lies ahead for our hero. A deep family hatred is there for all too see. The way Smith draws you into the story is something special, and you find it hard to put the book down. When something happens to the characters involved, you find yourself taking the punches as they take them. The way the book describes the African topology and climate will create a desire to explore the country yourself. It is easy to see why Smith is so highly rated. He is quite a brilliant writer. Emotional and heart-warming, a fantastic sequel, not to be ignored!
