So far this is my least favorite in the series, but Bantock's art is still interesting and the structure of the book is unique an still very imaginative in my opinion. ( )

I would give anything to have correspondents like these whose lives are sprinkled with a little mystical, archaeological adventure. You could stare at Bantock's pictures for hours on end. The lives of Isabella, Matthew, Griffin and Sabine make you long for a different reality. ( )

More beautiful artwork, but the plot has gone from mystical mystery to real world terrorism with the continued presence of the unseen villains. As with most mysteries, the more concrete the story gets, the less fantastical it seems, and fantasy is what drives these novels. ( )

The two trilogies by Bantock have rich balance. There is a little of everything as far as context and the art is rich and inviting. ( )

I've always had a sense that there's another voice deep inside me who is wiser than I am - someone who instinctively understood way more than I ever could.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 081183140X, Hardcover)

Alexandria will continue to delight the 3 million readers who fell in love with the epistolary romance of Griffin & Sabine. Awash with gorgeous artwork, the mystery of Griffin Moss and Sabine Strohem now entwines Matthew Sedon, an archaeologist steeped in Egyptian antiquity, and Isabella de Reims, a student in Paris whose vision holds the key to a new reality. Intrigue turns to danger and romance turns to passion as Matthew and Isabella struggle to make sense of a world-and feelings-beyond experience. Only the guidance of Griffin and Sabine, expert navigators of myth and reality, can keep them safe. Author and artist Nick Bantock brings a new sensuality and romance to his vivid dreamscapes and unique visual perspective. Alexandria is a breathtaking new chapter in a saga that has captured hearts, minds, and imaginations the world over.
