But Corville soon finds that the sands of the desert are indeed the "Sands of Destiny"!

In 1935 in French North Africa, the tribesmen of the interior have been stirred to rebellion in a mighty jihad created by a foreign power. Lieutenant Crispin de Corville, a secret agent for the French Foreign Legion, discovers the plot, and must fight his way across the desert, disguised as one of the Arabs, to save the string of forts that's the only thing keeping the hordes at bay.

Written by E. C. Tubb, narrated by David Thorn. Beneath the sweltering sun of French North Africa only the tough, iron men of the Foreign Legion stand between the restless tribesmen of the interior with their dreams of jihad, and the innocent traders and colonists of the coastal towns. Lieutenant Crispin de Corville, a secret agent for the Legion, discovers a plot to unite the tribes and win the essential arms and ammunition for their revolt, taking them from the Legion itself.

They died from machinegun bullets as they tried to draw water from the well hoing volleys from the defenders’ rifles. The legionnaires beat back that charge but, when the burnoosed figures had hidden themselves again in the hills, less than half of the remaining legionnaires were left to defend the shattered fort. And those few had no water.

As a reader of previous titles by this author, I was sorely disappointed with the direction this book took. I think M.S. Weyrich decided to try her hand at erotisism. She surely missed her mark and the point with this book!She starts with a shared ancient artifact with mystical powers, a handsome egyptian sailor, reincarnation and time travel. It all goes downhill from there. As a faithful Weyrich reader I suffered through the whole book never giving up hope that the story would gain some substance.But "no such luck". Instead M.S. Weyrich subjects the reader to love scenes that could be called nothing less than obscene. She depicts the soul of the main character Pia, as inhabiting the body of Cleopatra while Cleopatra makes love to their shared lover Darius. What is really hard to swallow is that because Pia is writing a book about Cleopatra she goes along for the ride as an observer/participant, when Darius and Cleopatra make love. M.S. Weyrich then concentrates on the story of Cleopatra with the Pia's entity as the observer.Than get this...Pia and Darius try to sneak time together behind Cleo's back when she is asleep with Pia still in her body. In my opinion this book was not very well thought out. As soon as Cleopatra gets bitten by the infamous asp the author rushes to conclude the story with a very poor ending I might add.

This book takes you on a love roller coaster. It starts with a vacation that turns into the best adventure ever noted. Olympia, Pia Bird, desperately wants a piece of rock that is believed to be chipped from the great Alexander the Great. Ironically, the peddler that introduced the beautiful stone to Pia Bird has sold it by the time she found her father, to a handsome young man with golden locks named Darius. The golden haired hunk gives Pia a piece of tbe stone and from there the book takes you on an emotional roller coaster into the life of Cleopatra, The Great Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, Darius and Olympia. This book is filled with on the edge writing. The author exhibits a strong story into tbe life of Cleopatra and how she loved. Cleopatra exudes strength, courage and wisdom. Through this power, Olympia learns what it is to love. I enjoyed the way the book takes you back and forth from current day to noted history. I enjoyed the innocence in both Olympia and Darius. This is a fabulous book if you love on the edge fiction.
