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 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.

Cloned from the remains of an ancient Egyptian god, a young man named Horace is sent to Boston's M.I.T. to study molecular biology. After graduation, he is expected to return to Egypt to recreate The Fluid of Life, an ancient elixir capable of eliminating death. The Egyptian government plans to use the magic potion to create an immortal army that will restore them to their former glory as the world's premiere superpower. Horace becomes sidetracked, however, when he falls in love with Jeanne Mosley, a beautiful, but fiesty, co-ed. Complicating matters, his best friend at M.I.T., Thomas Franklin, the son of the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, loves the same girl. After graduation, while attempting to recreate The Fluid of Life, Horace (who changes his name to Horus) resorts to terrorism in an effort to break the will of countries that oppose Egypt's political agenda. Employing his blossoming, supernatural abilities, he returns to the U.S., intending to assassinate the leading candidate for the next presidential election. Before returning to his native country, Horus kidnaps Jeanne, the queen of his dreams. Based on information given to the CIA by Thomas, an international manhunt ensues, culminating in an attack by U.N. Peacekeeping forces on a bunker beneath the Great Sphinx at Giza. Will Thomas and the U.N. Peacekeeping troops successfully rescue Jeanne? Can Horace be stopped before perfecting the formula for immortality, or will the entire world be enslaved and kept under the watchfull eye of Horus, the reincarnated son of Osiris?
  • I greatly enjoyed how this book started and enjoyed it up to a bit after the midpoint but then it lost momentum and focus. Some of this was regained almost to the end but in the part between midway and nearer the end, there were some odd parts.

    I did like the characters even though there were instances of disbelief where the characters were doing things that didn't seem possible (even though this is fiction where anything is possible), were out of character, or out of sequence.

    Overall, it is an enjoyable read.

  • This book would make a good movie; there's plenty of action and drama (plus the standard "raven-haired beauty"). The story engaged me, and I enjoyed reading it. I didn't want to put it down! I didn't feel like I really got to know any of the characters, but I wasn't expecting a ton of character development from this type of book. It kept me entertained and that's all I was hoping for. The author has a good sense of pacing and a decent ability to balance description with action, although early in the book I did laugh when a very drunk character thought to himself, "You would think that a 24 year old man with two years of Naval military service followed by three years of outstanding academic achievement at M.I.T. would have more sense, wouldn't you?" I would read more by this author, though. He's a good storyteller. Unfortunately I cannot recommend this book to friends due to two ridiculously written sex scenes.

  • Good story-line and plot. If you're looking for a different type of adventure story, then this book is for you. It's interesting and the plot moves quickly

  • 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.

  • Mr. Lasher's novel reminded me of two works in my collection that I have greatly cherished reading: Nathan Gottlieb's masterpiece "The Zukovka Experiment" and Ken Follet's "Lie Down With Lions" (the latter also turned into a movie). While the plots are stylistically similar - fast paced, vivid in images, and gripping - their execution in Mr. Lasher's hand is even more stunning. He is able to evoke within the reader an intense curiosity for Horus' actions and motivations, while at the same time providing a historic backdrop that helps explain the world in which we live. I wouldn't be surprised if The Falcon's popularity beckons Mr. Lasher to write a sequel, or as is fashionable these days, perhaps a "prequel". I am a fan of Mr. Lasher's writing, but have also heard him recite his short stories several years ago within an intimate setting in Houston, which was a thorough treat. I am looking forward to reading more pieces by this brilliant and gifted author!

  • 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 heavily on his shoulders. Though he commits terrible acts, there is a reluctance, an innocence about them that makes him seem vulnerable and still easy to like.

    Once I started reading this novel, I could not put it down. It reads fast. Beautiful, easy prose and an action packed plot will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Any fan of suspense and action would enjoy this story...lovers of Egyptian lore will find themselves captivated by both history and the exotic locale.

    Excellent read!

  • The Falcon is a novel that you will not be able to put down. Its pages are filled with adventure, history and love. I was privileged enough to be one of the first to read this novel when it was only pages in a binder. I cannot wait to reread it now in all its published glory!

  • If you like stories that call you to continue reading, this can do it. It makes one think about possibilities and hope maybe this one cannot be.
