The Servant of the Bones - Anne Rice



Description from Book;
"My name is Azriel," he said, sitting by the bed. "They call me the Servant of the Bones, but I became a rebel ghost, a bitter and impudent genii..."
"Azriel, you must tell me everything."

Having created fantastic universes of vampires and witches, the incomparable Anne Rice now carries us into new realms of the mystical and the magical - and into the presence of a dark and luminous new hero: the powerful, witty, smiling Azriel, Servant of the Bones. He is a ghost, demon, angel - in love with the good, in thrall to evil. He pours out his heart to us, telling his astonishing story when he finds himself - in present-day New York City - a dazed witness to the murder of a young girl and inexplicably obsessed by the desire to avenge her.

Azriel takes us back to his mortal youth in the magnificent city of Babylon, where he is plucked from death by evil priests and sorceresses and transformed into a genii commanded to do their bidding. Challenging these forces of destruction, Azriel embarks on his perilous journey through time - from Babylon's hanging gardens to the Europe of the Black Death to Manhattan in the 1990's. And as his quest approaches its climatic horror, he dares to use and risk his supernatural powers in the hope of forestalling a world-threatening conspiracy, and redeeming, at last, what was denied him so long ago: his own eternal human soul.

My take on this book selection;
I had a hard time getting into the beginning. It wasn't until about 150 pages into it, that the story really got good for me. I guess I'm so used to her vampire characters, that it was hard to get into such a religious character. The time setting, the character description, the whole story took some getting used to, however, I highly recommend all you Anne Rice fans read it. As she is no longer writing vampire or witch stories, it takes you on a whole new journey of reading. Plus, it really turned out to be a great story!

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
