Description

She is omnivorous. No matter age or appearance, physical frailty or imperfection. It is not their flesh that feeds her appetites but their souls. She devours young and old, men and women. She leaves only a desiccated husk. 

An unspeakable evil. An impossible gift. 

Renowned magus Taita is now over 100 years old and has ascended to a new level of wisdom and understanding about his world. But he must prepare himself for the biggest threat Egypt has ever faced: the great plagues and the failure of the Nile, brought about by the fire witch Eos, an ancient force of sheer evil. 

Taita must risk his soul to battle against Eos, or his homeland and everything he has ever loved will be lost forever. But there are other reasons for Taita to fight - since success could also mean rewards he could never have thought possible.... 

The fourth book in the epic Egyptian series.

Awful Narration

I regret buying/using a credit on the audible version of the quest.

Narrator poorly portrays the main character. In the previous books/audiobook he is confident and clever. The narrator makes the character voice sound weak and lacking the confidence that makes him THE warlock. It feels as though the narrator does not know the character at all, did not read the previous books and constantly use the same inflections on sentences.

He even says the main characters NAME completely different then all the other non audible audio books.

Just Don't

River God was an excellent book and the author should've retired to a quiet life of bull fighting or oil drilling never to publish again because each consecutive book in the series gets worse and worse. The historical inaccuracies are so egregious and the plot holes so outlandish that reading becomes an act of masochism.

Do yourself a favor and don't listen to or read this abomination, especially if you have any glimmer of historical knowledge.

A great epic in a wonderful series

Since Wilbur Smith is one of my favorite authors, and his Egyptian books one of my favorite series, there should be little surprise that this epic I novel is likewise a favorite. Epic in both number of pages and geography, his descriptions of Egypt to Ethiopia are vivid and wonderful... I only wish the outcome of Aos might have been more prudish.
