This book was fantastically entertaining and adventuresome. I really enjoyed the timescale used here. You never really get nice, exciting mystery-type stories from the ancient past. Writing in a time on no technology as simple as the light bulb is an extravagant and hardly touched upon world. So much more is open to what we don't know from personal experience to what we do know in our everyday lives.
The fact that the author had to write this novel from doing research on the time period and from traveling to places to learn about culture and architecture, really enhances the "suspension of disbelief" factor most often seen in live stage productions, but used here, we can really get a sense of the time and place of such a setting in the book. the Characters that are brought to life by the professional words of the author and his skill in his trade make them live in his work and really flow together to form an exciting bunch, when thrown with a problem really work hard to get to the bottom of things. I enjoyed the book fully and found that although it was full of strange sayings and words, it was still and very clever way to write a child/teen fiction adventure. This is one of those books that can take you far away and bring you back again satisfied with everything that has transpired.
