Absolutely one of Anne Rice's best. This book has a little bit of everything for everyone; romance, suspense, historical. I read it in less than a week and then read it again a few months later.

This was a fantastic book. I have never been a fan of Anne Rice espically not her Vampire series but this book was great. I really wish that she would have made it a series.

I felt this was a bit of a twist from her traditional vampire novels, kind of slow moving, like many of her books, but worth the read if you are an Anne Rice fan.

I really liked this book and have read it about 3 times. Its romantic and it has a twist to the story. Ture its is different from her other books but well worth the read.

Another entertaining Rice novel. Reads as if it were written to become a movie script.

Interesting story and kept my attention enough, but not one of Anne Rice's best. Still a good read and quite enjoyable.

From the back of the book:
In her bestselling "Vampire Chronicles", Anne Rice created a world of haunting sensuality and seductive power-- "Interview with the Vampire", "The Vampire Lestat" and "The Queen of the Damned" are novels unsurpassed for the hypnotic, erotic quality. Now Rice takes the theme she has always explored to such chilling effect--the interplay of the undead with their mortal brethren--and has fashioned it into an electrifying entertainmen.
Ramses the Great Lives....
but having drunk the elixir of life he is now Ramses the Damned, doomed forever to wander the earth, desperate to quell hungers that can never be satisfied--for food, for wine, for women.
Reawakened in opulent Edwardian London, he becomes Dr. Ramsey, expert in Egyptology. He is also the close companion of voluptuous, adventurous Julie Stratford, heiress to a vast shipping fortune and the center of a group of jaded aristocrats with appetites of their own to appease.
But with the pleasures Ramses enjoys with Julie cannot soothe him. Searing memories of his last reawakening, at the behest of Cleopatra, his beloved Queen of Egypt, burn in his immortal soul. And though he is immortal, he is still all too human. His intense longing for his great love, undiminished over the centuries, will force him to commit an act that will place everyone around him in the gravest danger...
