This book gives an absolute in depth exploration of the intricate nature of Zorastrianism, with detailed explanations of its origins, along with its relation to most of the world's religions. It captures the mind with a tale of a religion which has almost disappeared from existance. From beginning to end, this novel is a valuable chronicle of history that anyone would enjoy.
