Review Text

Third appearance of Taita, the witty but enigmatic polymath eunuch who narrated "River God "(1994) and reappeared largely on a 4,000-year-old papyrus scroll in "The Seventh Scroll "(1995). Smith's bloody actioners most often dwell on Africa's lower regions, but he also has a sweet tooth for Egyptology. While still no stylist (O Norman, O "Ancient Evenings"!), Smith marches swiftly whenever his action chariot wobbles ("He was riding her like a runaway horse, and she paced him, meeting the thrusting drive of his hips . . ."). This latest installment tells how Taita, following the death of Queen Lostris, turns hermit, studies the occult, and becomes a divinely purposeful warlock. Smith's great snap and liveliness have helped sell over 80 million copies worldwide. "Warlock "will get a major marketing campaign. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
