After years of study, he discovers the divine purpose of his bereavement when he is called upon to save the dynasty of Lostris from the clouds of evil that loom over Egypt.

Exploding with all the drama, mystery, and passion of a bygone time, Warlock is a masterpiece from a storyteller at the height of his powers. Download and start listening now!

    " Kind of a repeating theme. He could probably have stopped on book 2 of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/6/2014

    " #3 in his Egyptian series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dayne | 1/14/2014

    " not his greatest work but still easy to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marci | 1/4/2014

    " this book started really good, and more than 1/2 way thru started to drag for me. sometimes the battles get to be too much. and not enough in depth on the relationships. like what happened to Nefer's mother, the queen? no where is she mentioned . also Lostris is brought up a bit in the story, but not alot of props to Tanus. they still dont know that he was tamose's father!!!! i am being a lil harsh and i really did enjoy the book, though i though the 1st 2 books were much better..... we will see about the quest, i just picked it up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Kelly | 1/4/2014

    " One warning: Smith uses graphic descriptions including violence and sensuality. There are a lot of parts the reader would do well to simply skip. This novel asks us to stretch our willingness to go with him into the supernatural enough that you can't really call this historical fiction. Nevertheless, Smith is an amazing story-teller and I got totally lost in the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 12/31/2013

    " The third novel in Smith's Ancient Egypt series. Very good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seracer2003 | 12/30/2013

    " Cool sequel to River God... In this one the lowly scribe becomes a warlock... with certain powers that are unexplainable... very good book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynn | 12/26/2013

    " Couldn't finish. Very disappointing after the first two of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deanna | 12/20/2013

    " After finishing the 1st book some years ago I was happy to read the 2nd, But really happy to get to this book and continue the series "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Richard Marman | 12/5/2013

    " This was a load of old rubbish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria Lamerton | 12/2/2013

    " Love these books so much....can read time and time again "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cole | 11/25/2013

    " Not quite as good as River God but still great in its own way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 11/19/2013

    " A long read but well worth it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 11/18/2013

    " This was my first Wilbur Smith novel. I read the series out of order, but loved it all the same. Warlock, The Quest, then The River God. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donnee | 11/13/2013

    " I downloaded this book at random whilst on holiday and, to my surprise, quite enjoyed it. Egyptian settings wouldn't normally be my choice. I now discover that there are 'Taita' forerunners that are potentially better...may well look them out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 8/29/2013

    " Another great book from Wilbur Smith. Takes place in Ancient Egypt it is about a young boy losing his father who is the pharaoh and losing everything. As he grows he must find a way to reclaim the his rightful place and unite a war torn Egypt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 6/10/2013

    " Fanastic! Back to Taita in Ancient Egypt, this is more of a sequel to River God than The Seventh Scroll was. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tomaz Bercic | 3/11/2013

    " Exactly the same story as in the River God except more sluggish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/15/2013

    " A decent enough epic, though I found the violence against women in this book to be unsettling. I also missed the old wily Taita. Here he is taciturn and remote, where in other novels in the series he has easily been the most interesting character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penny | 1/4/2013

    " Again very engrossing and fascinating serila of books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Memo | 11/25/2012

    " Loved the trilogy and although this was not as good as River God, I still found it a very good read. Didn't want it to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Winston Brown | 11/12/2012

    " Another great book but I do think that Taita is getting a bit passed it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beowulfwulf | 9/19/2012

    " Don't remember a lot of it. Just liked the first ones and read the last two for the heck of it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 8/14/2012

    " Sigh...this was just not as good as the first book in the series. All the cool characters, save one, are dead. It's told in the third person, as opposed to the first. Didn't finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ernie | 7/31/2012

    " An excellent book of you like historical fiction. The ending is absolutely ferocious. Buckets of blood and action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 2/7/2012

    " A tale by master story teller Wilbur Smith, which will enthrall and a muse. Third book in the 'Egyptian' series is craftily written yet easy to read. Thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 11/12/2011

    " Well this did not disappoint. Just as good as the previous but with some twists. Another one that was difficult to put down. I really enjoyed this book and am already deep into the next in the sequel. What fun!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 9/23/2011

    " I loved this book in a can'tputitdown way. It really annoyed my wife though as I spent my holiday ignoring everyone "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 4/23/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 3/6/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina | 1/22/2011

    " Almost as good as River God "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Humber | 1/21/2011

    " This was the conclusion to the River God/Seventh Scroll books and it was a great conclusion. I LOVE this series and do go back and read it every few years. If you like anything to do with Ancient Egypt, this is a great series for you to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gerald | 1/15/2011

    " As usual, Wilbur Smith's description of ancient Egypt is facinating, and his story compelling. Educational and suspenseful. Once you get involved in the story, you have to keep reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ross | 11/30/2010

    " An enjoyable read from Smith! The Second in the trilogy. There is a little history to be learnt from this work of fiction. I couldn't get through the three of these novels quickly enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Manuela | 11/23/2010

    " Non ai livelli altissimi de "Il dio del fiume", ma comunque appassionante e ben strutturato. "
