One of the world's most acclaimed adventure writers returns to the world of ancient Egypt with the stunning sequel to the New York Times bestselling River God.

Hidden away in the vast and forbidding 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 ancient Gods, and adept of magic and the supernatural. Now Taita answers the summons from the beyond. He leaves the desert vastness and returns to the world of men, to find himself plunged into a terrible conflict against the forces of evil which threaten to overwhelm the throne and the realm of Egypt, and to destroy the young prince Nefer, who is the grandson of Queen Lostris. With vivid depictions of battle and intrigue, of love and passion, with fascinating characters both good and evil, Wilbur Smith brings to life in colorful detail the world of ancient Egypt. This is a masterful feat of story-telling by one of the world's best-selling authors. It is Wilbur Smith at the peak of his formidable powers.

This is what happens to Egypt, fantasy, and a brilliant cast of characters when placed in the hands of a master. Sweeping, intense, well-crafted, and a fine blurring between magic and reality. Highest recommendation. Read full review
