Publisher's Summary

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.

The end of a wonderful dynasty

I absolutely adore Wilbur Smith, his adventurace gripping story telling with beautifully written vista's of Africa interspersed with description of the various animals and culture, its like being there yourself with a good friend. Unfortunately as I fell in love with the characters in the Egyptian series I was dismayed that book 4 was the end of Fem and no mention of her again or the fact that Tieta had imbued extra powers in books 5 through 6, I found this utterly confusing and such an anticlimax that I assume that I had entered an alternate universe with the story, I felt book 5 and 6 were in the wrong place and belonged somewhere prior to book 4. My dear Wilbur I sincerely hope that you will be able to rectify this issue as I'm hung on the last words of Tieta and Fem in book 4 and feel utterly lost please come find me again Tieta I miss you so much
