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.

    "Disapointment"

    Too much sorcery for my taste. After River God and Desert God it was a disapointment

    Story
    "A story of sorcery, mysticism and rebirth."

    The quest is a story of sorcery, mysticism and rebirth. Taita sets out on a quest with Meren, to restore the flow of water to the Nile and end the evil sorcery of evil sorceress Eos and her minion Soe. With great narration by Simon Vance, this book is hard to put down.

    "Shocked"
    What disappointed you about The Quest?

    this is not the Wilbur Smith type of story I have ever read.Too say the least I will be returning it


    What could Wilbur Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    dumfounded


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Simon Vance?

    no problem with the story teller


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Quest?

    scrapped the story


    Any additional comments?

    So disappointed
