I can't believe I've never read anything by this author before. This is something I will correct immediately! The characters and story held me from beginning to end. Searching for ancient Egyptian whatevers, while the bad guys are chasing you...very exciting...great settings...terrific plot twists! I love the way the author managed to put himself into the story!

As always, Wilbur Smith fascinates. Very exciting, highly detailed novel that reads like fact rather than fiction. Adventure, romance, humor, betrayal - it's all in here, wrapped up in historical fact and historical "might have been". Hugely entertaining, "can't put it down" read.

Sequel to River God. Excellent story. Story moves from ancient Egypt to modern times, back and forth many times. There is a secret in the story telling which is revealed almost at the end of the book. It makes for a very enjoyable read.

Lots of intrigue and action: Indiana Jones eat your heart out!

Here's a copy of the review for the paperback.

For 4,000 years, the lavish crypt of the Pharaoh Mamose has never been found...until the Seventh Scroll, a cryptic message written by the slave Taita, gives beautiful Egyptologist Royan Al Simma a tantalizing clue to its location.

But this is a treasure cache others would kill to possess. Only one step ahead of assassins, Royan runs for her life and into the arms of the only man she can trust, Sir Nicholas Quenton-Harper - a daring man who will stake his fortune and his life to join her hunt for the king's tomb. Together, they will embark on a breathtaking journey to the most exotic locale on earth, where the greatest mystery of ancient Egypt, a chilling danger and an explosive passion are waiting.

Steeped in ancient mystery, drama and action, The Seventh Scroll is a masterpiece from a storyteller at the height of his powers.

I love Wilbur Smith. I would recommend reading ALL of his books, not just this one. But, this is the one I would start with. First, The Seventh Scroll - Second, River God. Third, Warlock. Fourth, The Quest. This series is an extremely exciting adventure story that has to do with finding a lost pharoahs tomb. The Seventh Scroll is set in modern time and is about tracing where the tomb might be today. The other three books are a supposed story taken from an ancient scroll found in an egyptian queens tomb. The scrolls are written by one of her slaves. But, not just any slave. His name is Tiata, and he is a genius. You will love this book.

It's no River God, but it kept me going. It seemed like he wanted to see if he could write a thriller. He almost could.
