I read my first Wilbur Smith book Monsoon maybe about 15 years ago when someone gifted it to me to see if I liked it Ever since then I've been a very ardent fan of Mr Smith's work hunting for every single book from the used book stores or when I could afford it purchased new Through his writing I have felt as if I know intimately the history and the peoples of Africa though this is of course an arrogance; but his love for the continent shows itself with absolute clarity and is transfered into each reader's soulI have to say though I haven't been very keen on some of the latest books that were co written by others Maybe at times the co writer's style comes out than Mr Smith's; though I applaud his effort in trying to introduce us to other newer writersI love this latest instalment into the BallantyneCourtney saga It seems to be somewhat of a back to basics of Mr Smith's usual style and tale It reminds me very much of Blue Horizon; similar tone similar emotions It have filled in a few gaps that now the tale of Triumph of the Sun feels a lot complete and alive Here's a bit of a spoiler but hopefully not too much This is a tale of redemption for Penrod Ballantyne and a lot of growth for his character I recall that I never really liked him in Triumph of the Sun and have always felt he did not fully deserve his happy ending with Amber; being too full of himself and despite the suffering he had during captivity he was still the same smug arrogant ass he was before; I wondered if he would stay faithful to Amber This tale has redeemed him not only in Amber's eyes but also in mine As this tale happens somewhat in the middle of the Triumph of the Sun we do know he will get his happy ending; so this book is not about the destination but very much about the journey And it is a very good journey of growthI hope that there are many books from Mr Smith in the years to come and I hope I enjoy them as much as I did this one Here's a toast to an absolutely Masterful Writer and Tale spinner

Wilbur's backI didn't enjoy his last few books and had decided to give up on him but my husband said this new one was up to Wilbur's historical standards It's close and I credit his almost secret cowriter If you look at the cover very very closely down toward the bottom in letters so faint one can barely read them it says with Imogen Robertson I don't see her credited anywhere else so maybe Wilbur isn't thrilled about giving her credit But he should I assume she's the reason this book was so much fun to read The last few seemed written by a jaded old sexist crabapple who phoned in his 2 dimensional cartoon characters who did nothing but fight From one battle to the next nothing else happened I'd lost interestNow with Ms Robertson's help we get to read about two powerful women in addition to the men and there are enough admirable people in this book to make you happy about humanity again a feature lacking in the recent Smith books I'm actually looking forward to the next book in the series and hopefully Robertson will be doing most of the writing Wilbur can smile and rake in the dough and accolades his reputation happily restored
