Her first book since Memnoch the Devil, 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.
Another epic read. It's amazing just how much Rice can cram into 387 pages.
Not really sure how this book left me feeling. I didn't love nor hate this book. I guess I could say its a good escape for the next few hundred pages.
Azriel is ghost, demon, angel-in love with the good, in thrall to the evil-and he pours out his heart to us telling an astonishing story.
This is the book that I have, but it is NOT hardback.
