Detail information provided as the story unfolds.
Lead charater was developed very well.
The main lead.
No, several periods.
The story takes place at a time when the European Christian world was going backward and the Arab Muslim world was where knowledge was celebrated. It celebrates knowledge and seeking more.
It took a few chapters to get into the Narrator's speech as he isn't what i am used to. But he actually fit the character and storytelling very nicely.
The story itself held me greatly, normally a book of this size with my schedule would take 2 weeks to get through, but I found myself so drawn in that I didn't want an ending, and I finished inside 5 days of starting.
This book gave interesting insight to the world in that period of time. The character was typical Louie L'Amour intrigued. Romance mixed with battles of good and evil keep the reader engaged.
