I looked forward to this third book about Taita but was a little dissapointed by its emphasis on supernatural and magic and less on historical egypt as in the previous novels. It was however a good story line although the first half of the novel could perhaps have been cut down considerably (the first part was unnecessarily detailed, although as the title says, it's about a quest.) A decent read while lying on the beach.
