Mid-twenty-first century time traveler Sierra Waters, fresh from her mission to save Socrates from the hemlock, is determined to alter history yet again, by protecting the ancient Library of Alexandria – where as many as 750,000 one-of-a-kind texts were lost, an event described by many as “one of the greatest intellectual catastrophes in history.”
Along the way, she will encounter old friends such as William Henry Appleton, the great 19th-century American publisher, and enemies like the enigmatic time-traveling inventor Heron of Alexandria. Her quest will involve historical personages as Hypatia, Cleopatra’s sister Arsinoe, Ptolemy, the astronomer, and St. Augustine. In this sequel to THE PLOT TO SAVE SOCRATES, award-winning author Paul Levinson offers another time-traveling adventure spanning millennia. Full of surprising twists and turns, all the while attempting the seemingly impossible: UNBURNING ALEXANDRIA.
