About the Author

Bio

Author Picture

Wilbur Smith

Wilbur Smith was born on January 9, 1933 in what was then Northern Rhodesia and is now Zambia. At the age of eighteen months baby Wilbur was struck down by cerebral malaria, delirious for ten days, and doctors warned that he could be brain-damaged if he survived.

Survive he most certainly did, and as he grew up he began to share his mother's interest in novels. Her tastes were wide-ranging but they included adventure novels, which the young Wilbur devoured. In conjunction with the magnificent environment in which he was growing up, these forays into the world of the imagination made him intensely aware of his surroundings: the wildlife, the vast open spaces, the freedom to roam the country and the political tensions too.

Smith's desire to write first showed itself when he was a young man with his heart set on becoming a journalist so that he could chronicle the rapidly changing social situations of southern Africa. His stern, Victorian father, who never read a book in his life, had other ideas, however. 'Don't be a bloody fool,' he said. 'You'll starve to death. Get a real job.'



Synopsis of this title

Hidden away in the vast and forbidding deserts of North Africa, Taita has passed the years since the death of his beloved Queen Lostris in prayer and study. He has become the Warlock, wise in the lore of the ancient Gods, and adept of magic and the supernatural. Now Taita answers the summons from the beyond. He leaves the desert vastness and returns to the world of men, to find himself plunged into a terrible conflict against the forces of evil which threaten to overwhelm the throne and the realm of Egypt, and to destroy the young prince Nefer, who is the grandson of Queen Lostris.

With vivid depictions of battle and intrigue, of love and passion, with fascinating characters both good and evil, Wilbur Smith brings to life in colorful detail the world of ancient Egypt. This is a masterful feat of story-telling by one of the world's best-selling authors. It is Wilbur Smith at the peak of his formidable powers.
