Wilbur Smith returns with the eagerly awaited sequel to his thrilling Egyptian series. Following on from River God, The Seventh Scroll and Warlock, The Quest continues the story of the Warlock, Taita, wise in the lore of the ancient Gods and a master of magic and the supernatural.
Egypt is struck by a series of terrible plagues that cripple the Kingdom, and then the ultimate disaster follows. The Nile fails. The waters that nourish and sustain the land dry up. Something catastrophic is taking place in the distant and totally unexplored depths of Africa from where the mighty river springs. In desperation Pharoah sends for Taita, the only man who might be able to win through to the source of the Nile and discover the cause of all their woes. None of them can have any idea of what a terrible enemy lies in ambush for The Warlock in those mysterious lands at the end of their world
Wilbur Smith is an astute author who produces the best novels of fiction ever written,,, once started you can't stop reading till the end it's as if he castes an ethereal spell over you too continue reading till the end.......amazing.
This book should be re-titled The Tales of Merlin.
What was the author thinking.. Mystical,magic,waifs,gods and goolies..
The most tedious reading ever from a once great story teller..
