Publisher's Summary

Duraid Ai Simmu and his beautiful wife, Royan, were the first to discover the tomb of Queen Lostris and, with it, the scrolls that record the burial of Pharaoh Mamose with all his vast treasure. But as their present-day search for the treasure moves from the Nile to the uplands of Ethiopia, a savage battle begins. For others will stop at nothing to claim the prize as their own. When Duraid is brutally murdered, Royan seeks refuge in England with eminent archaeologist Nicholas Quenton-Harper. With him she can find the courage to unlock the dreams of an ancient Pharaoh.

Not as gripping as other Wilbur Smith books.

This tale was a sequel to The River God, which was told with great detail. This story was hasty, had a fair amount of detail of some portions, but was rushed at the end - almost an afterthought.

waste of time and money.

The story seems badly abridged. The characters are completely under developed with no sense of their personalities or motivations.

what happened to the story?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

more detail. The details of Taitas riddles were t otally missing. Without these details the story was dull.

Has The Seventh Scroll put you off other books in this genre?

No. The story was too abridged to give it much interest.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

What character would you cut from The Seventh Scroll?

None, I would put more of the characters in.

Any additional comments?

This story was too abridged. The point of it was totally missing.

Badly shortened

I understand they have shortened this, but I have read the full version and there was no action in it at all. They took too much out, I don't even think it read fluently
