Publisher's Summary

She glanced down at the drawer in which she kept all her floppy disks. That and all the other drawers had been pulled out and thrown on the floor. They were empty, of course; along with the disks, all her notebooks and photographs were missing. Her last connections with the seventh scroll were lost. After three years of work, gone was the proof it had ever existed.  

A hunt for treasure. A battle to stay alive.   

When Royan Al Simma is the victim of a vicious attack that leaves her husband dead, her only thought is that she must continue their joint work: to use the secrets of the seventh scroll to find the hidden tomb of Pharaoh Mamose and its untold trove of lost Egyptian riches. To do so, she must bury her grief and partner with the eccentric aristocrat Nicholas Quenton-Harper, a man who shares her passion for the ancient world.  

But the men who killed her husband are not yet finished. As Royan and Nicholas draw closer to the Pharaoh's tomb, enemies are gathering - people who will stop at nothing to ensure the scroll's promised treasures are kept from Roman's hands....

Found it hard to stop listening

I read the book years ago and at that time I considered it the best book I had ever read. Now, with audible it was so much better that I am re-looking at all of the other Wilbur Smith books again.

Delightful, but Very Different

I have to admit that I don't like being taken out of time and place from a previous story. I just don't... It was jarring and annoying, but the story is rather grand, a bit dragged out, and poignant. I still loved it, and am looking forward to more of Taita's adventures and genius in the next book. I don't give spoilers. I love it, but it is different.

I Fell In Love With The Characters

If you haven’t read Wilbur Smith YOU NEED TO! I am so sad because I have now finished all of his series along with all but one of his novels. I’m saving that for an up coming road trip with my husband.
Mr. Smiths writing style is so very extraordinary, vivid, alive, I feel like I am a character in one of his stories his novels are so easy to melt into. I feel as though I can, smell the air, taste the salt of the sea, feel the stinging heat of the desert, touch the minerals and rocks, hike through the jungles, go on Safari, feel the splashing rain, smell the mineral iron smell of blood, ride a horse....I JUST DO NOT KNOW HOW TO EXPRESS HOW FABULOUS THESE NOVELS & SERIES ARE!
***THANK YOU Wilber Smith for sharing your stories with the world, I for one am richer for it.

Excellent adventure story!

This follow up to River God is another great Wilbur Smith adventure story. I’ve saved this one for a great road trip and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended!!

All one segment?! No chapters! Try to break it up next time. Good story though.

what happened to "Ancient Egypt"!

I thought this would fill the gap between Rivergod and Warlock.
Nothing of the kind. It was just a modern day action novel. Not a very good one if you ask me.
The narrator phones it in to boot. I couldn't tell the male from female leads half the time.
Returning.

Too verbose

Smith could have effectively told the same story in a more succinct fashion. River God was long but engaging throughout this however became tedious in many places. Also I don’t believe this is really book two in the series.. it makes more sense as book 3.
