Kurzbeschreibung

5. Februar 2008 A Novel of Ancient Egypt (Buch 2)
For 4,000 years, the lavish crypt of the Pharaoh Mamose has never been found...until the Seventh Scroll, a cryptic message written by he slave Taita, gives beautiful Egyptologist Royan Al Simma a tantalizing clue to its location.

But this is a treasure cache others would kill to possess. Only one step ahead of assassins, Royan runs for her life and into the arms of the only man she can trust, Sir Nicholas Quenton-Harper-a daring man who will stake his fortune and his life to join her hunt for the king's tomb. Together, they will embark on a breathtaking journey to the most exotic locale on earth, where the greatest mystery of ancient Egypt, a chilling danger and an explosive passion are waiting.

Steeped in ancient mystery, drama and action, The Seventh Scroll is a masterpiece from a storyteller at the height of his powers.

Pressestimmen

Praise for Seventh Scroll

"Great adventure...a smashing story."
- Ocala Star-Banner

"A page-turner...Few novelists can write action scenes that all but leap off the page the way Smith can...His detailed portrait of ancient Egypt is fascinating." - Anniston Star (TX)

‘Throughout The Seventh Scroll, as in all Wilbur Smith novels, the plot twists and turns with constant surprises ... This old-fashioned adventure novel keeps the reader enthralled all the way to its very exciting conclusion.' – The Washington Post Book World

"It's clear Smith knows his subject: his graphic depiction of lust, bloodletting, politics, and … honor is firmly grounded in rich details that evoke the period. … A consummate sequel, The Seventh Scroll perfectly complements River God, its phenomenally popular precursor. Smith excels at action sequences, getting his attractive heroes and despicable villains into and out of hugely entertaining predicaments, all the while tossing off vivid descriptions, bits of historical detail, and classic low-key British banter." – Booklist

"This well-crafted novel is full of adventure, tension, and intrigue." – Library Journal

" Intoxicating... A heady mix of exotic adventure, romance, and Egyptology. Smith is a master." – Publishers Weekly

'A desert sandstorm couldn't get the pages turning faster than Smith.' – Independent On Sunday

'Full-blooded, muscle-on-bone-crunching treasure hunt ... it is non-stop action and thrill.' – Daily Express

“A rousing good sequel to River God that takes the immensely entertaining form of a high-tech treasure hunt ... A master storyteller at the top of his considerable form.' Kirkus Reviews

'Life-threatening dangers loom around every turn, leaving the reader breathless ... An incredibly exciting and satisfying read.' – Chattanooga Free Press

“A rare author who wields a razor-sharp sword of craftsmanship.” —Tulsa World

“Wilbur Smith is one of those benchmarks against whom others are compared.” —The Times (UK)      
"Best Historical Novelist--I say Wilbur Smith, with his swashbuckling novels of Africa.  The bodices of rip and the blood flows.  You can get lost in Wilbur Smith and misplace all of August."--Stephen King

"Action is Wilur Smith's game, and he is a master."--The Washington Post Book World

“The world’s leading adventure writer.” —Daily Express (UK)

"Wilbur Smith rarely misses a trick."--Sunday Times

4.0 von 5 Sternen A unique sequel 7. Januar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
How is it possible for a sequel to be set 4,000 years after the original story? Wilbur Smith answers that question in The Seventh Scroll, a book set largely in modern day Ethiopia where conflicting groups try to locate the Egyptian treasure entombed by Taita at the end of The River God, this book's predessor. I don't know how someone who had not read The River God would respond to The Seventh Scroll (though from the other reviews it is obvious that many loved it without reading the prior book) but for me, the connection between Taita, a character that dominated the story in The River God and remains one of my favorite recent fictional characters, and the exciting 'race for the treasure' plot of The Seventh Scroll, made the action of this book all the more fascinating.
The plot and characters here - unlike The River God - don't represent any great invetive achievement. It is pretty standard good guy/bad guy stuff with lots of cliff hanger action. But Smith handles this kind of thing better than most other authors and can make even predictable situations and characters exciting.
A fun read, especially if you read and enjoyed The River God. I would recommend this, and most of Smith's many novels, to anyone who likes exciting, complex and intelligent stories. His are all this and more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An edge of your seat thrilling adventure. 20. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
A reader from upstate New York, USA , March 17, 1999 An edge of your seat thrilling adventure Ancient Egypt was a time of great pharaohs, slaves, and numerous treasures, including a four thousand year old treasure lost in a tomb waiting to be found. In his thrilling and adventurous novel, The Seventh Scroll, Wilbur Smith writes about the adventures of two Egyptologists following the writings of an Egyptian slave by taking you through the wild forests and rivers of Ethiopia and into the tombs of the ancient pharaohs. Dr. Royan Al Simmia, a beautiful young, and energetic Egyptologist and her partner, Sir Nicholas Quenton-Harper, find themselves embarked on a wild adventure. They followed the writings of and ancient Egyptian slave, Taita in there search for the lost tomb of the Egyptian Pharaoh, Mamose. Mamose's treasure has a promise of life long wealth to anyone who could find it. The treasure is so grand it could drive someone to murder to be the first one to discover it. "My name is Taita. I am a physcian and a poet. I am an architect and a philosopher. I am your friend. I will answer you." Smith uses his character Taita from his much acclaimed novel River God, as the base of this novel. Taita was a mathmatical and scientific genius for his time. He could calculate and design angles as perfectly as we do today. He was also a master riddler and game player. "All of these numbers and extraneous symbols- they spell no choherent words. They do not relate to each other ina any way, except that no number in the list is greater than eight." Said Royan. "Oh, Lordy, Lordy!" Nicholas exclaimed as his face cleared. "You clever lady! Taita is playing the game of bao with us! Lesen Sie weiter... ›

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a Sequel? 30. Januar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I was shopping at a garage sale when I say a battered copy of a book called the "Seventh Scroll". It looked a bit interesting so I decided to buy it. (It was only $0.50 anyway.) I took it home and began reading it. I was ingrossed. I read it in less than a week. (I had full time school and part time work at the time. I could only read at night.) I would go to bed at 8:00 and stay up and read till midnight to 3:00. This book isn't for the weak of stomach. Wilbur A. Smith has a way of making every death into a wonderfully grousome tale. He deffinatly used his imagination on this. I finished reading it and recommended it to my mother who also greatly enjoyed it. Through out the whole book there was mention to another book called "River God". But I wasn't sure if it was a real book or a made up book for the purpose of the story. It turns out that it was the first book. I had read and understood the whole book "Seventh Scroll" without even reading "River God". (I have bought a copy of "River God" and can't wait to start reading it.) Even if you don't want to read "River God" you can really get into this book. Read it!
