    "This is truly an amazing book. It smolders with the fires of love, adventure and intrigue, all at the same time. Wilbur Smith sets the scene ablaze right from the first paragraph which describes the unbearable African heat. Underlying the masterful art of storytelling is the pain inflicted on Taita the slave and his feelings for Lostris, the love of his life. The book traverses some wonderful journeys tapping historical facts and artfully mixing them with fiction. When the reader enters the domain of the final 100 pages, he finds it impossible to put the book down. Yet, when it is down to the last dozen pages, the reader does not want the book to end. River God is an amazing work of fiction, with lingering effects that stay with you after you have finished reading the book. "

    "Not my favorite Courtney book, but good none the less. The amount of research and detail that gets poured into these books is truly awe inspiring. I'm an on again off again fan of historical literature but I keep coming back to this series. Birds of Prey is an okay addition, but don't start here. Personally I'd recommend going chronological rather than the order they were written and published."

    "While I enjoyed this book, I do not think that it was the best in the series. Also, I think that it is worth pointing out that readers really need to read these books in sequential order so as to understand the various back stories"

    "Wilbur Smith is one of my favorite authors so I read Rage as soon as it was released. Not surprising, but this book is another masterpiece. It is filled with adventure, romance and history. This book made me feel like I was in Africa right alone with the characters. One of the best books I have read in a long time!"

    "I love Wilbur Smith I've read a lot of of his books. I was asking myself which book I liked the most from him, when looking into it I noticed I haven't read this book. I decided to pick up and boy am I glad I did. This has to be his best book, if not it's certainly a runner up. It has been a real joy reading this, I don't want to spoil anything but I feel this will be a favorite for many."
