Quotes & Awards

  • “Unfolds with wondrous and terrifying logic…The Mummy reaches its dazzling conclusion in the same manner as Rice’s vampire books: with the promise of more to come. Long live the Mummy!”

    Boston Herald

  • “Rice’s disturbing novels provoke though as well as entertain.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Rice succeeds masterfully in blending horror and romance…Ramses is a fascinating character, heroic yet tragically flawed by his human desires.”

    Atlanta Journal

  • “A typical Rice tale combining sensuous romance with a historical angle, adding a dash of the macabre…It should keep you up nights until you’ve finished, then you will stay awake hoping to a sequel.”

    Dallas Times Herald

  • “Captivating.”

    Vogue

  • “A good story, part romance novel, part horror story, part mini-course in Egyptology…A handsome, mesmerizing monster.”

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

  • “Rice is undeniably gifted and here characters are always compelling.”

    Cincinnati Enquirer

  • “She’s done it again…With Rice’s lush writing, a world where the unusual seems normal springs to life…If you liked her vampire trilogy, you’ll be enthralled with her visit to Egypt’s legends.”

    Palm Beach Post

  • The Mummy is superior to Rice’s vampire [novels].”

    Rocky Mountain News

  • “Wonderfully eerie.”

    USA Today

  • “Fascinating…Anne Rice creates a mummy that is altogether new and different…The mythological realm of eternal life is where Rice does her most fascinating work.”

    Des Moines Register

    New Orleans Times-Picayune

  • “Extraordinary…Filled with horror, suspense, and romance, The Mummy literally pulses with excitement and imagination. Subtly erotic and definitely descriptive, this is Rice’s most exciting work to date.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “Vintage Anne Rice: quickly paced, elegantly erotic and full of enchanting terror.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lawrence | 2/19/2014

    " Just a total escape from reality. A Romance novel. Imagine Twilight, but with a mummy instead of a vampire. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Kitty | 2/11/2014

    " My only disappointment with this book is that it wasn't part of a series. Definitely one of my favorite Rice books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Maria | 2/11/2014

    " Quite predictable nevertheless enjoyable. I didn't expect much from this book but Anne Rice surprised me. Interesting story, charismatic heroes and a happy-ending. What else could I want? It's missing something but I'm not sure what it is yet... maybe the fact that it's a one-read book for me. I don't think I'll ever re-read this one, not because it's a bad book, no... there simply are such books to which you never come back. Forgive me Ramses but we say goodbye to each other here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Roniq | 2/10/2014

    " One of my favorite Anne Rice books. I heard there would be a film with the director of Titanic, YIKES!! "
