Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite

Nicaea Trilogy: Three Novellas by Warren Lamb is a collection offering three novellas that take on a theme of history. This book spins the story of an ancient codex so rare it becomes the object of a quest, and this quest spans time and place. There are both real characters and fictional ones that interact together and tell the story of life changing events. The events take place in the time of the Roman Empire, the fall of Jerusalem, the Council of Nicaea and even the early 20th century. Take a journey of adventure and faith in this codex.

This story is both well written and entertaining. Normally when I read books that have both historically true characters and fictional ones I don't expect much, but Nicaea Trilogy is different. Warren Lamb knows how to spin a story so that you feel immersed in it fully and can't tell the fiction from the history, and that makes this book truly enjoyable. No single character stood out to me because they were all entertaining and well fleshed out. This group of novellas truly fits well together and has none of the usual jarring feeling you get when several short stories are put into one book together. All in all, if you are looking for a book that is historical, entertaining, and gives you a different look at religious journeys, this is a read for you. I have not read the first book that goes with this one, but I feel this is a fairly good stand alone in its own right and I will be looking forward to more from this author.

This is an impressively creative book. Warren Lamb blends history with believable fiction to craft plots that are well designed and fluently told. If the art of writing good fiction is "a good story well told," he does it. I read his earlier book, based on the book of Acts, and this one is just as engaging. Well done!
