Battling brothers

Lots of war and death in this novel but I enjoyed it nevertheless and have the next one downloaded even though it is abridged.

Brilliant sequel!

This is the brilliant sequel to When the Lion Feeds. After leaving the Witwatersrand with his son Dirk, Sean Courtneymeets Ruth Friedman and together they escape into British held territory during the Boer War. They go their separate ways, and Sean joins the British Army after a brief return home to Ladyburg. He battles against his brother in law Jan Paulis who leads a small troop of Boer soldiers, eventually after the two have several encounters the war ends in peace. Sean returns home to marry Ruth whose husband Saul has died during the war. Garry continues his jealousy and hatred of Sean culminating in a climatic horse race between Michael and Dirk Courtney, in which the result could determine Garry's fate. Brilliantly narrated once again by John Lee, Wilbur Smith's The Sound of Thunder is a great listen and read.
