Overview

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.
After the death of his beloved Queen Lostris, Taita retreats into the forbidding deserts of North Africa to become a hermit. He devotes himself to the study of the occult and, armed with extraordinary powers, he gradually transforms himself into a warlock. 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.

A fantastic story. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this audiobook. If you like action, exciting heroes, political intrigue, romance, a touch of magic and a chance to experience a taste of ancient Egypt, this is the story for you. I had not read RIVER GOD before listening to WARLOCK and now I am looking forward to reading all of Wilbur Smith's novels of Egypt.

EXCELLENT! THE CHARACTERS ARE SO REAL AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN SYSTEMS OF HEIRARCHY AND RELIGION THAT SMITH BRINGS TO THIS BOOK ARE RIGHT ON THE MONEY.. AS WITH ALL SMITHS STORIES YOU WILL WAIT INPATIENTLY FOR THE NEXT INSTALLMENT.
