Publisher's Summary

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.

Stunning!

I was sad to finish the book. It was enthralling! And so full of action and fabulous saga's. Did not want this to end!

Disappointing all round.

It's been all down hill since the excellent first one of the series. I am not going to bother with the next one.
