The Quest by Wilbur Smith

Wilbur Smith's Egyptian series is filled with action and adventure. The books remind me of many Saturday afternoon matinees of my childhood--heavy on plot and short on character development--just the thing for an afternoon's escape from rainy weather.

The Quest is the fourth book in the series and continues where the previous book, Warlock, left off. Taita, a powerful Magus is given the task of solving the curses that plaque Egypt due to evil at the headwaters of the Nile. Tatia and his faithful ally Meren Cambyses journey up the river battling natural and supernatural foes in their quest.

The Quest is exciting and filled with adventure, but be forewarned it is also graphic and bloody.
