Alexandria perpetuates the story of Griffin and Sabine, two lovers who amalgamated to become the Golden Mean. Their existence becomes more perplexing as they are clearly cognates of two other lovers, Matthew and Isabelle. An enigma begins to unravel as dreams become interpreted and a major archealogical find is unearthed in Egypt. Meanwhile, the series antagonist is back in force.

The art is this book was more enjoyable the most of the other books. A majority of it uses Egyptian imagery and symbols. I also enjoyed the references to Ptolemaic Egypt and its cross- culturism. I am eager to see how the cultural polarism revealed in the archeological find relates to whaty is going on in the world of these characters. At the same time, this is the fifth of these books that I have read and I am eager to cap the series off. Luckily, new aspects become introduced which serve to keep my interest.
