    One thought on “The Falcon and His Desert Rose”

    1. Teaming with tension and delivered in a style vaguely reminiscent of Dean Koontz or Ken Follett, The Falcon and His Desert Rose is a story about love, friendship, and a young man forced to live up to the expectations of the secret group that cloned him from the remains of an ancient Egyptian god. Join the author's vision of a not-too-distant future and be immersed in the international struggle for power and immortality.

    2. I knew I was going to enjoy this book as soon as I saw the cover. I have always loved anything and everything related to Egyptian lore, myth and history. This book has it all. From the first page I was sucked in and I was almost heartbroken when I reached the end.The Falcon and His Desert Rose is nothing short of an amazing story. I don’t give out 5 star ratings that often anymore, but with this, if I could give it 6 stars, I would.In some parts it kinda reminded me a little bit of The Mummy, [...]

    3. Not the normal genre I would chose to read, but I've had the pleasure of reading George's work before and find him to be a highly talented author. The premise for this book was fascinating, and the content surely did not disappoint!Horace/Horus was so well-developed. I truly felt for this character and how he was manipulated at every turn since the moment he was conceived. This man-god was the seventh attempt to clone the infamous son of Orisis, and the weight of his country's expectations press [...]

    4. It took me a little while to get into this book, but I stayed at it due to the fact I love anything involving Egypt. Oh and am I glad I did stick with it. The characters are great and indepth, and the writer has a brilliant imagination. The story is also rather visual, which as people who read my reviews will know, I absolutely love. There is nothing better when reading a novel, than to be able to walk side by side with the characters, see and feel everything they do and by the end of the book t [...]

    5. Today's review is on The Falcon and His Desert Rose by George R. LasherI have always had an affinity for all things Egyptian, and all things paranormal in nature. In The Falcon and His Desert Rose I was thrust into a world where I had both. Filled with love, hate, murder and vengeance, Lasher's futuristic world is believable and exciting.Horace is a clone, and not just any clone. Horace is the clone of an ancient Egyptian god who was created to bring glory back to Egypt. His education has been c [...]

    6. Okay, so in this one book, there is an enormous government conspiracy, a love triangle between college kids, and murder afoot. I had the oddest reaction to the “bad guy”, Horus. At some points in the story, I really wanted to see him get the girl and succeed, but then he would do something enormously horrible…like kidnapping Jeanne, and I would want to see him get what he deserved. Of all the wonderfully written characters in this book, I was drawn to Horus the most. From the first page th [...]

    7. At times the story moved too fast to get a feel for the characters. I do enjoy characters that are neither white hat or black hat. Though Horus/Horace’s moral compass was a late bloomer due to the restrictive environment he was raised in, I hoped for better. More time with any of the three main characters should have added depth, rather than shadowing a superhero/villain relationship origin story.
