    There are moments that I feel like reading something light and entertaining What could be better than an adventure treasure hunting suspense? That is exactly what Wilbur Smith a masterful writer of such stories created in The Seventh Scroll It is about the archaeological uest and discovery of the lost Pharaohs Mamose's tomb The action sets off swiftly in Egypt moves to England to end up in Ethiopia There are very believable and engaging characters good and honorable or totally evil For those looking for a good thriller read it and enjoy

    In the 1994 opening novel of his Ancient Egypt series River God which I haven't read veteran South African novelist Wilbur Smith depicts the fictional Pharaoh Mamose finding a temporary refuge with some of his people from the invading Hyskos in the valley of Ethiopia's Blue Nile a region that's wild and largely unexplored even in modern times This novel presupposes the events of the earlier one; but although it's billed as the second book of the series it takes place nearly 4000 years later in the author's present and can be read as a stand alone any information about the earlier events that the reader needs is supplied in the text of this bookWhile excavating the tomb of Mamose's ueen Lostris archaeologists Duraid al Simma and his beautiful and much younger Anglo Egyptian wife Royan have unearthed ten scrolls written by the ueen's scribe Taita The seventh scroll provides clues to Mamose's Ethiopian resting place with its treasures But knowledge of these clues has fallen into the hands of a ruthless wealthy and powerful antiuities collector who's not about to let minor things like laws against murder and theft keep him from adding this loot to his private collection When Duraid is killed early on and the scroll stolen Royan must follow his dying instructions by joining forces with another wealthy collector widowed adventurer Sir Nicholas uentin Harper who's much closer to her age to find the tomb before her husband's killers do There's a complication though Royan wants to turn the treasure over to the proper authorities But while Nicholas like Royan wants himself and her to be first at the tomb and is ethical enough unlike their competition to not hurt any innocents and chivalrous enough to protect Royan as gallantly as she could wish he has ambitions to add the find to HIS collection So our heroine and hero here are working partly as allies but partly at cross purposes too which makes for an interesting battle of wits And Cupid may complicate things tooSmith's reputation is as a popular novelist of action adventure fiction much of it set in his native Africa delivering excitement and suspense I've never read any of his other work except for a Reader's Digest condensed version of The Sunbird but this his 25th novel would suggest that his reputation is deserved He also provides convincing characters a well constructed plot and realistic sometimes wryly humorous dialogue Where appropriate his descriptions are vivid and he has an obviously considerable knowledge of African history culture and geography which he draws on to enrich the book In the best tradition of action adventure fiction he views his characters' actions in terms of a moral code that accurately distinguishes between good and evil While religion isn't a major theme here Royan and some other characters are Coptic Christians who take their faith seriously and Smith treats it respectfullyAs Smith depicts him Nicholas had before his marriage a womanizing past which he appears to be furnished with in order to establish his virility credentials in the misguided assumption that this will make him swoon worthy to female readers If they have much sense it won't But despite what movie raters would describe as some sensuality the central romantic plot here is clean and the only explicit sexual content involves the villain This is disgusting but it's intended to be There's some profanity in the book but not a lot and no obscenity that I can recall Some of the violence is extensive and gruesome and my oldest daughter who's read of Smith's work than I have reports that this is characteristic but it was nothing I couldn't handleMost fans of action adventure IMO would find this right up their alley It also has the advantage of essentially being a stand alone and not sucking the reader into a potentially long series

    Abandoned at page 313 I made the mistake of taking a break and after picking the book up again I simply could not care less about what happens It's not badly written and I'm sure the clues to the pharao's untouched grave might be fun if I had read River Gods As it is there is just so much repetition I just can't take any In fact this book has put me entirely off reading which rarely happens I hardly know what to do with myself I don't expect this feeling to last longer than maybe 20 minutes which is how long I need to cook dinner but it's uite horrific nonetheless

    The Seventh Scroll by Wilbur Smith is the follow up to River God one of the best historical novels I have read in a very long time The Seventh Scroll was meant to be read after River God but it is not exactly a seuel It actually takes place in the present day with a couple of archeologist types who are out to discover the hidden tombs that were depicted in the first book What an intriguing concept What we got to live through before is now seen through the eyes of history including all the distortions of history that are bound to happen Afterall what we assume to be true through archeological research isn't necessarily the way it really happened The author does another intriguing thing in this book He inserts himself into his own fiction having a main character refer to Wilbur Smith as having authored the fictional River God from information uncovered in the first 6 scrolls found in the tomb Of course it is the 7th scroll that the characters are after in this second book This leads to some funny moments as the two main protagonists argue about just how accurate Wilbur Smith was in the first book; one of them goes so far as to dismiss Mr Smith as a hack writer who changes the historical record in order to include sex and violence It's a twisted loop whereby an author actually negatively critues his own workI guess you have to be pretty secure in your own writing career to do that Regardless it works wonderfully here The book itself was only slightly less enjoyable than the first When you get right down to it this is a pretty straight forward adventuretreasure hunting story along the likes of Romancing the Stone But Wilbur Smith is an outstanding writer who has a knack for making you read just a little and then still despite any deadlines you may have to deal with You know the two main characters will hook up by the end but its not predictable how that happens The dangerous scenes in the book are really dangerous and the suspense is spot on As for historical accuracyeverything sure seemed to be accurate based on my limited knowledge of ancient Egypt and my trip to that country a few years ago I hadn't planned on reading this series this year but now I am already looking forward to the third book Warlock where we get to return to the ancient times and see what happens next

    By now I have read this book about 4 times which tells you how much I loved it Smith has written a beautiful adventerous story about love greed death and courage It takes place in a few different places starting in Egypt moving its way to England and then to Ethiopia Wilbur Smith created wonderful characters both lovable and detestable The basic plot of the story is that a tomb found in Egypt reveals seven scrolls the last scroll containing cryptic clues to the burial site of an ancient king Two people come together one a woman from Egypt and a man from England and struggle against the power and corruption of a lunatic multi millionare to find the burial site and the treasures that lie within After reading most of Smiths books to date I have to say that this is one of my favourite I really enjoyed this book Read it; you will not be sorry

  7. Elizabeth A says:

    Oh good grief but this is simply awful Here in week 6 of the Covid 19 pandemic I thought a treasure hunt for lost Egyptian tombs would be just the thing but after 253 pages a little under halfway I'm out The writing is awkward the dialog ridiculous the characters paper thin the plot inane and the author inserts references to himself and River Gods into the story I really enjoyed River Gods but alas this second book in the Ancient Egypt series is not worth the time That these two idiots are the ones following clues left by Taita must have him rolling his eyes too Unlike the previous book this is set in current times and there really isn't any need for the sexist and racist stuff here UghI blame the shock of hearing that the uarantine might be extended to mid May as the only reason I got as far into the book as I did Do not bother

  8. Barbara says:

    Smith inserted himself and his book River God throughout the story as though archaeologists and Egyptologists look to him as an authority on ancient Egypt refers to photos of himself and the characters how all the Egyptologists of the world were excited to find this missing tomb after reading River God – strange to me that such highly educated people would think he has this knowledge that no one else does simply because he wrote a work of fiction every time I read one of these references it was like tripping over a stone while out for a walk Also Smith gets bogged down with minute details of an engineering feat – I skipped over pages and pages Not my favourite of his books

  9. Alan says:

    A seuel that takes place 4000 years later It drags a little in the middle and has some violent sex scenes that detract from the book but is an overall good read I like the way this man does his research

  10. Sunny says:

    I'm not even sure where I got this book from I think it might have been out of a bag of books that my mom gave me I'd never heard of the author before and didn't even realize it was part of a series until I looked it up on Goodreads when I was about halfway through the novel But even though The Seventh Scroll is actually the second book in a series it works as a stand alone novelMostly I enjoyed The Seventh Scroll The character of Royan was entertaining to read and easy to relate to for the most part Overall it's a decent story and parts of it were fascinating Many other parts were boring dull poorly written overly descriptive super predictable and a few were actually cringe worthy And something that bothered me immensely the POV changes randomly sometimes even in the middle of a paragraph I love multiple Points of View but I'm of the opinion that the POV change needs to happen at a chapter break or at least a section break within a chapter But in The Seventh Scroll the POV seems to change completely randomly and didn't always makes sense to meAs I read through the many reviews from other people though I almost wonder if I'm missing something Many others seem to love the author and this series and rave on and on about how good it is I didn't hate The Seventh Scroll but I didn't love it either It's a good read and starts well but the middle part of the novel loses momentum and never uite picks it back up again By the time I muddled through to the end I just wanted them to find the treasure and be done alreadyI'm giving The Seventh Scroll two stars I feel vaguely bad about doing so but I'm also not uite willing to go to three stars and say I liked it It was ok I probably won't try any of the rest of the series even though the first book in the series River God seems to get rave reviews But I think I'll pass for now at leastHave you read The Seventh Scroll by Wilbur Smith? What did you think am I way off base?
