The Quest Author:Wilbur Smith Sequel to the Egyptian series, continues the story of the warlock Taita. Egypt has been struck by a series of terrible plagues, then the Nile River fails. Catastrophies are happening in the south of Africa, and the Pharaoh send Taita to find the source of the Nile and the reason for all their woes.
If you have read some of the MANY Wilbur Smith historical novels, you would probably like this one as I did. I've read a few from a different series, but when this one was given to me, I read it and liked it. Different venue(Egypt and south), different time period, but overall a pretty good read.
