I finished this book a few days ago and I wanted it to settle before I wrote my review The novel by the author's admission is part history part imagination and part magic Going back so far in time leaves an author with little written record to rely on for fact The burning of the Great Library at Alexandria was a monumental loss to humanity The facts of the matter aside this novel was truly arresting and I had a hard time putting it down to get anything doneAncient history fascinates me Religion fascinates me This book manages to tie both together in a story that resonates through time People have been fighting over the better god for millenia and I fear it will never end Written in the Ashes pits the ever strengthening Christianity against the Old Ways considered to be Pagan Cyril the bishop in charge of Alexandria wants to solidify his power base uh huh as if it's ever REALLY about religion and get rid of the practitioners of any other religion other than his own He does this through fear and intimidationHypatia the last recorded librarian for the Great Library is a forward thinking woman who wants all to be able to practice as they feel She has a base of support but Cyril is calling her a witch and a whore so the people are learning to fear her One of her main supporters Alizar has recently taken a slave into his household Hannah Hannah is a Jewess who was kidnapped from her father She has a destiny of which she is completely unawareThe book was fascinating The characters were well developed and I really didn't want to leave this world of ancient Alexandria The imaginary magical priests and the beautiful goddesses created by Ms Van Zandt lent themselves to a mystical world that was uite believable within its context As the story unfolded I was rooting for Hannah to fulfill her destiny and find peace with her past I am looking forward to the next chapters in these characters lives
