Overview

A Courtney series adventure - Book 3 in the Birds of Prey trilogy

Jim sprang back on to the truck of the violently rocking wagon, and stared across at Manatasee. She saw him and pointed her assegai at his face. Then he saw the length of slow-match had been exposed across the last yard of trampled earth below the mound on which the queen stood. The swift flame shot along it, leaving the fuse blackened and twisted as it burned. Jim clenched his jaws and waited for the explosion. ' A powerful enemy. A land of second chances. Jim Courtney is protected by all the wealth and influence that his family's successful business, the Courtney Brothers Trading Company, can provide in the Dutch-owned colonies of South Africa. Louisa Leuven is an orphaned young woman who escaped the plague only to be unjustly imprisoned and transported to the Cape. When a storm destroys her prison ship, Jim is her only hope of escape. But Louise and Jim have greater adventures in the African wilds ahead of them: they must flee from Dutch forces who seek not only to recapture their prisoner, but also to hunt down and hang Jim Courtney - and punish the other member of the Courtney family, however they can...

Wilbur Smith is the last of the great epic writers. His tales are mesmerizing and addictive. River God, Seventh Scroll, Birds of Prey... these novels are worth reading. I was caught off guard when I learned that Wilbur has a new release of 'Blue Horizon'. I am sure that it will live up to expectations. A 'good tree' such as Wilbur Smith cannot produce 'bad-fruit'.

I started reading Wilbur Smith many years ago as a young women....his novels of Africa entranced me. Now his novels, especially those of the Egyptian era, keep me just as entranced. I can't put the book down once I start reading. He can't write fast enough to suit me.

I first found a dog earred copy of 'The Angels Weep' Since that time I have tracked down every single book he has ever written. 'Just one more page',(this at 4 a.m. in the morning). I feel as if I am in the African Veld. I have never been disappointed in anything Wilbur Smith has ever written. Wonderful Author.

Great paced adventure story - Indiana Jones style. Action all the way and pure escapism

I can't stop reading Wilbur Smith. His books are action packed with fantastic characters. YOu can't stop reading because you want to know what will happen! Blue Horizon is great. I read Monsoon first and then this one. It's a continuation of the Courtney Family in Africa in the 1700's. Dorian and Tom are older now and their sons feature heavily in this book. I completely recommend it.
