Best Anne Rice book since Ramses the Damned in my opinion.
Anne Rice's character Azriel of Babylon, circa 600 BC, is one of her more fascinating characters.
servent will delight the star of the show is azriel of wonderous babylon, circa 600 b.c. a wrathful angel, a demon bent on revenge,[Rice] dosn't let go until we're rapturous,on our knees,begging for more."
Anne Rice takes us now into the world of Isaiah and Jeremiah, and the destruction of Solomon's temple, to tell the story of Azriel, Servant of the Bones. He is ghost, genji, demon, angel--pure spirit made visible. He pours his heart out to us as he journeys from an ancient Babylon of royal plottings and religious upheavals to the Europe of the Black Death and to the modern world. There he finds himself, amidst the towers of Manhattan, in confrontation with his own human origins and the dark forces that have sought to condemn him to a life of evil and destruction.
I am a fan of Ann Rice's works. This is a good, neat 1 book story. So if you don't have the stamina to read an on-going series and still want her style, this book is the one for you.
