The Quest by Wilbur Smith

quest_291x500From AudioFile Magazine:
Wilber Smith’s saga of ancient Egypt continues. Taita, beloved advisor of the pharaoh, sets out on a quest to rid Egypt of the plagues that threaten the kingdom. Taita knows that the witch Eos is behind the troubles and that he must travel to the source of the Nile to confront her. Simon Vance is an indefatigable narrator. Long narrative passages move swiftly, and dialogue is sharp. Vance keeps the rhythm of the story moving as Taita and his comrades face difficult odds in the conflict with Eos. Their struggles and the accompanying suspense are intense. While Vance’s portrayals of the main characters are strong and forceful, he also depicts the tenderness between Taita and Fenn, and their friendship with Meren. J.E.M.

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it. With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator. Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
