    Hidden away in the deserts of North Africa, Taita has passed the years since the death of his beloved Queen Lostris in prayer and study. He has become the Warlock, wise in the lore of the gods, an adept of magic and the supernatural. Now Taita answers the summons from the beyond. He returns to the world of men to find himself plunged into a conflict against the forces of evil that threaten to overwhelm the throne of Egypt, and to destroy the young prince Nefer, who is the grandson of Queen Lostris.

    Egypt is struck by a series of terrible plagues that cripple the kingdom, and then the ultimate disaster occurs: 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, Pharaoh sends for Taita, the only man who might be able to find the source of the Nile and discover the cause of all their woes.
