Very good read
I really enjoy anne rice's work, she has a way of writing which amazes me and this book does not disappoint. The story line is very captivating and she can put you in the time she describes like no other. If you like this i would highly recommend the vampire chronicles, there all great so far. Im on the 5th one. About 8hours of the fourth one is unnecessary but the main story is really good, you just have to stick with it.
King of the Damned
If you like Anne Rice and you have never read this - then shame on you!
The Mummy is one of the best books she has ever written (really wish she would do a sequel...)
If you liked the Vampire Chronicles (first three books) and the Mayfair Witches give this a shot.
It's got everything you need in a good story - love, adventure, obsession and murder!
Michael York does a good job with the narration (although i was expecting a female narrator...)
All in all - well worth the money!
