Four childhood friends in present-day New Orleans are torn apart by envy, passion, and a secret murder.

Five years ago, Meredith, Brandon, Greg, and Stephen quickly discover the fragile boundaries between friendship and betrayal as they enter high school and form new allegiances. Meredith, Brandon, and Greg gain popularity, while Stephen is viciously treated as an outcast. Then two violent deaths destroy the already delicate bonds of their friendship.

When the friends are drawn back together, new facts about their mutual history are exposed and what was held to be a tragic accident is revealed as murder. As the true story emerges, other secrets begin to unravel with more dangerous, far-reaching consequences.

A Destiny of Souls is a stunning debut novel that uncovers the darker side of the teenage psyche.

    " This was Anne Rice's son Christopher Rice's first novel. I was amazed with the excellence of storyline, the unexpected twists and the cleverly planned mystery that unfolded. I'm definitely going to read The Snow Garden, his second novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elektra | 2/14/2014

    " When I read this book I was touch in ways I could not imagine. I guess in the real world we are all fighting gently through "A Density Of Souls" just trying our hardest not to ring bells that we cannot unring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 2/14/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book- it's not for everyone but I found the language (both gritty and poetic) lovely. I believe this to be a wonderful first novel. You can definitely tell where real life issues are woven into the novel but it adds to the sympathy you feel for the characters. As I read I will admit I kept asking myself why nothing good happened to any of the characters- it seems everything that can go wrong does- however the more I thought about it the more I realized that life isn't roses and some people/groups are prone to tragedy- especially when you allow and cultivate it like the wealthy in the novel. "

    " this book is so bad it's good--which is exactly what i was looking for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Will | 2/6/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. Easy read, interesting plot. I will say that I was a bit shocked by the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan Cote | 1/28/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robbie | 1/22/2014

    " This is one of my favorite books of all times... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darla | 1/19/2014

    " I picked this up in a second-hand store because the title caught me. It's a tragic and intriguing story. Some bits strain credibility and knocked me out of the suspension of disbelief momentarily, but overall I enjoyed the read. It's a lot darker than I normally go for, but I'm glad I stayed with it until the end because the author did an excellent job wrapping it up. So often I come to the end of novel and find myself disappointed, but this left me with that immediate sense of nostalgia, like I had just left old friends behind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max Hing | 1/9/2014

    " This was one my favorite gothic, incestuous, homo-erotic, guilty reading pleasures in high school... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shannan | 1/9/2014

    " Don't bother with this one. Author is son of Anne Rice. Boring and hard to follow. a struggle to finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terrance Bond | 11/13/2012

    " Great read...imbued with as much mystery, shock and perverse sex appeal as the city in which it takes place. Fantastic coming-of-age story for anyone who grew up feeling different. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marcelo | 7/25/2012

    " Yawn - I must be over the expected demographic, considering some other reviews, and the turgid writing didn't even take me to the finish line. Avoid. "

    " This was an excellent debut novel for Christopher Rice. ound it almost exhausting at time to read, because of the heaviness of the story. The plot was quite involved, and the end was somewhat disturbing. I would recommend to anyone not real religious, I guess, is the best way to put it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 1/25/2012

    " Drippy gothic gay novel that's completely over-wrought. Recommended! "

    " I actually read this book twice. I think this is his best one. I read the 2 books after this and couldn't get into them. I love the story of growing up and coming out, and the twist at the end...I still think about it. "
