This is simply an amazing book. The story never falters and the characters are richly drawn and pitch perfect. Originally read this back in 1983 and it has long been one of my all time favorites. The early books in this wonderful series are outstanding and will always live in my heart. If you get the chance to read these-do it. Heroism, bravery, cowardice, treachery it is a grand story that has everything you could possibly want.

5 stars out of 5

Originally read in 1983 and re-read in 1995

Fair "sword and sandal" biblical epic concerning Jacob's return to Canaan. Main characters are two brothers, metalworkers, one who is an arrogant and uncaring armorer, the other who is a kind, but crippled, artist who works with gold. Book is full of barbaric nomads, the dance of the seven veils, and cruel crimes of war.
Again I am entranced with these children of the lion books. I am currently on number 5 in the 20 book series. I can't put them down.
a little bit wordy perhaps.
een beetje langdradig
j'ai trouvé certains passages un peu long
The book was not a disappointment. Although there were a lot of gaps between this and book 1
Soo ecxiting, hated to put it down
