The Scribes from Alexandria,
This review is from: The Scribes from Alexandria: Roman Mystery 15 (THE ROMAN MYSTERIES) (Paperback)
This is the first Caroline Lawrence book I've read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters are engaging - I particularly liked the scribes - and the story moves along at a good lick: but what I most enjoyed was the way it takes you right into a far-distant world. CL seems to be completely at ease here; every detail rings true. Am full of admiration for the amount of research she must have done, and the ease with which the book wears it.
