In a new and major novel, the creator of fantastic universes of vampires and witches 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, genii, 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 Europe of the Black Death and on 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.

    " Nice graphic story line of how Azriel came to be and his journies and challenges he faced and still faces. Never giving up. "

    " I loved how poetry from Stan Rice was included. It may have also been in the original version but I don't remember it and it had been many years since I had read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashlee | 5/9/2011

    " Very good book. I would suggest it to anyone looking for a unique story! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stacie | 3/31/2011

    " This took me 5 tries to finally get through, and it wasn't worth the work. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John | 3/20/2011

    " What a stupid, overblown, and pretentious piece of drivel. I thought her so-called erotic novels were dull, but, in this one, even the one sex scene is, quite literally, putrid filled. She has managed to cram perhaps 50 pages of god story into a mere 419 pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tamara | 1/12/2011

    " This book was well written and hard to put down. I've read it many times since I was a teen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronica | 12/31/2010

    " I found this book confusing and very historical. It focused on the ancient times in the city of Babylon, when a young Hebrew servant is sacrificed to become a servant of bones. He does not truly understand what he is but uses his power for love, and eventually uses it to save the world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 12/6/2010

    " Servant of the Bones is one of my all time favorite books. It takes you across centuries and focuses on one character's trials of spirit and life. Wow, she really tapped the ethos to bring these words to page. I've read it twice, may have to again this coming new year. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 11/18/2010

    " Loves this book. I would recommended it to anyone, that loves the darkness and forbiden. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Troy | 10/28/2010

    " Like Paul McCartney, Anne Rice is capable of brilliance if she pushes herself. "
