9780230013780: The Quest (The Egyptian Novels)

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

From the Back Cover:

New York Times bestselling author Wilbur Smith offers a thrilling look at the world of Ancient Egypt in THE QUEST

Egypt has been struck by a series of terrible plagues, killing its crops and crippling its people.

Then the ultimate disaster befalls the kingdom: The Nile fails.

In desperation, the Pharaoh sends the warlock Taita, wise in the lore of the gods and a master of magic and the supernatural.

But not even he could have imagined what terrible enemy waits in ambush in those dark lands at the end of their world. Now it's up to Taita to save Egypt―before the end of the world's most glorious civilization draws near.

"Smith brings to life...the world of Egypt so much so you can almost feel the heat and taste the dust as the narrative builds to cracking pace."―Irish News
