Servant of the Bones/Rice, Anne/Paper/0099184427/S051-A1
In love with the good, in thrall to evil, from the hanging gardens of Babylon to modern New York, Azriel lives for all time. Azriel, Servant of the Bones, powerful, dark and luminous, is a ghost, a demon, an angel. In Anne Rice's mystical and magical new novel he finds himself in present-day New York, a dazed witness to the murder of a young girl, and inexplicable obsessed by the desire to avenge her. Azriel's astonishing story takes us back to his mortal youth in the magnificence of ancient Babylon. There he is plucked from death by evil priests and sorceresses and transformed into a genie commanded to do their bidding. But Azriel challenges these forces of destruction, and embarks on his journey through time. As his quest approaches its climactic horror, Azriel at last dares to use his supernatural powers in the hope of forestalling a world-threatening conspiracy, and finally redeeming what was denied him so long ago: his own eternal soul.
