Readers who have taken the time to delve into the Ballantyne series will also appreciate this novel a little more, as they have the Zimbabwe backstory and the political upheavals in that country. As the second sequence comes to an end, I can see a strong connection to the multi-generational story that was pushed before I started. As I mentioned in an earlier review, I can see similarities to Follett, Archer, and Rutherfurd as I read, tying characters together as the decades meld together.
It is this type of writing that is most effective and yet hardest to accomplish.
Keep Your Eyes Upon Russia
Storylines must stay fresh and yet work on the foundation of earlier characters and generations, which can easily be impeded by an author going off on tangents and forgetting about where the story originated. Readers can forego reading the first sequence and be fairly well-versed, though it is always nice to know about Sean and Garrick as Centaine begins her journey and has a passionate connection to Michael, as well as some of the political goings-on that occurred in colonial South Africa.
However, that remains at the discretion of the reader. And what will the third sequence bring to the narrative? Apparently some back stories related to the historical Courtneys, though not entirely sequential or constant, from what I have heard. I suppose we will have to wait and see. Kudos, Mr. Smith for an interesting end to the second sequence. I can only hope you have more political intrigue in store for readers, as well as additionally addictive characters.
Although it is set in after the book 8, Golden Fox. Wilbur Smith however never saw it as a part of the mainstream Courtney series.
Twice A Princess
Grandson of Centaine de Thiry, it is a stand alone story. The first part is set around big game hunting in Africa. Sean is employed by Riccardo Monterro to take him on a hunt for lion and elephant. Riccardo brings along his daughter Claudia.
"Pimpin' is hard work"
However they chase an elephant over the border into war torn Mozambique which forms the second part of this story. He describes in detail the hunt for lion and elephant. Something I found difficult to read. He also describes the Mozambique civil war and the bloodshed and cruelty, and there are some cruel people in this book. Particularly the villain of the book General China. A villain worthy of the title.
By John William Draper, M. D., LL. D.
The violence is very graphic at times. It is a fast moving high adventure story with twists and turns and knife edge suspense. It's action packed with battles, daring escapes, friendship, heroism and of course, love. Its probably the most enjoyable Courtney book since The Burning Shore.

Lots of action, the story definitely kept moving. I had been missing that lately in my books, so it was great! I just don't like the later Courtneys as much as I liked those in the beginning. Though Sean in this story was better than the brothers in last few books. But these books are long! I will probably keep going in the series, but only one or two per year. Feb 07, Owen rated it liked it. Ive enjoyed this whole series from Wilbur Smith. I did like this book but I think I need a break. The style is very easy to read and the storyline moves quickly to hold your interest.
I found though that at times themes are repeated and it verged on being a bit cheesey. Ill be back to read more of the Courtney series but for now Ill try something a bit different for a bit. A great book. On the same suspense as all his other works. Great plot, great suspense, very detailed. Feb 21, Nastasia Botha rated it it was amazing.

Shooting Pigeons. For the Lord will slay a sacrifice in Bozrah and make a mighty slaughter in Edom. The strongest shall perish, young boys and veterans too. The land will be soaked with blood, and the soil made rich with fat. For it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompense for what Edom has done to Israel.
Edom is the Jew! They are not Hebrews who are Abraham's seed, they are "Jews" who are Idumeans or Edomites and accursed with their father, Cain. While they consider us "human cattle", God will make them a sacrifice to the cattle, the fowls and wild animals Isaiah ; Ezekiel , ; Revelation This is the fulfillment of the prophetic pantomime of the birth of Esau and Jacob where Esau was first-born but Jacob grasped hold of his heel.
Esau subsequently despised his birthright, and sold it to Jacob. God recognized Jacob's zeal, giving him Isaac's blessing also and changing his name which meant "supplanter", to Israel, "a prince of power with God". Esau hated Jacob and swore he would kill him Genesis Esau compounded his sin by intermarrying Canaanite and Hittite Serpent seed of Cain's line, whose genealogy is not on the Book of Life as they are not related to Adam.
Read the Talmud which concurs with the Bible that "Edom is in Jewry". The "Red Sea" is so-named after Edom. The founder of the House of Rothschild drew up plans for the creation of the Illuminati and one world government, entrusting Adam Weishaupt with its organization and development. Hence the "Red" flag of Rothschild's atheistic Communism, which is raised-up for conflict with all religions in the final revolution that is intended to exhaust all peoples of the world and introduce one world government under his pure Luciferian worship.
This final revolution is intended to destroy Israel for ever - all the seed of Abraham: both natural and Spiritual, as Esau vowed Genesis This will become Armageddon. These people control YOU, they control the Hebrews, they control the Arabs, America, Russia, Britain, the Vatican, the banking system, media, entertainment, the UN, the education curricula, major political parties, denominational churches and modern theological colleges. Do you see the trail of the Serpent, and the spirit of Satan working stealthily in his own people through the ages?
So bold he intermarried with Abraham's natural seed to eradicate that bloodline naturally as he tried to destroy Adam's bloodline by adultery with Eve.
They call both Hebrews and themselves "Jews", as they seek to abort Abraham's Spiritual seed or Christians , by mixing human reasoning with Bible faith, making the hybrid Word of God of no effect as it is not able to produce the new birth. Jeremiah , 23 prophetically name the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jew and their Babylonian communism the "hammer of the whole earth".

He will open Israel's eyes by the ministry of their two prophets and finish the transgression wherein he rejected Messiah; making an end of his sin or unbelief, make reconciliations for iniquity and so-on Daniel In their carnality they think they have stolen back Israel's birthright by perverting his religion in Babylonian Captivity, integrating with them under John Hyrcanus and marrying Canaanite Sephardim and Mongol Khazar Ashkenazim self-styled Jews into Israel, calling the hybrid mix "Jews", a word that did not exist in any language or appear in any Bible until years ago.
The Jews are Babylon. Isn't that what Brother Branham said? Read Jeremiah and Revelation There are TWO Babylons. One is Vatican Rome, the other is the red Edomite Jews whose city of Los Angeles God will destroy with an earthquake, and who will bomb Rome off the face of the earth. The United States too.
According to Harnsworth's "History of the World", "Judaism was not evolved in Judah; it was in Babylon that Judaism first became that which it was and still is. Winkler, L. King, Dr.
