New York Times best-selling author Wilbur Smith returns with the eagerly awaited next installment in his thrilling Egyptian series. 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, 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. But none have any idea of what a terrible enemy lies in ambush for the Warlock in those mysterious lands at the end of their world. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a disappointment after the first 3 which were fantastic. It was too long, too magical - after the others, and 156 year old Taita obsessing over a teenage girl was pretty icky. It felt like Wilbur's worried about his own mortality, and has decided to give his favourite character everything he could want, which is OK but didn't ring true for the series. "

    " Loved it almost as much as River God and more than Warlock. Once again, Wilbur Smith has left the story of Taita open for another chapter. And I must say that I do hope he does another novel with these characters. "

    " Good read. But Taitia's transformation beteen the books does come off as a bit uneven: not just his physical transformation. The first and second books are great stand alones. Books 3 and 4 are generaly more for fantasy fans than for people who like historical fiction. "
