See 1 question about The Mummy…. Books by Anne Rice. I recommend this one to anyone who loves Rice, or historical fantasy that isn’t too “fantasy”. Ramses, one seriously hunky immortal, not a teh per se, he just sleeps wrapped up for long periods of time, like a thousand years or so. There are only one or samned of Rice’s books that I haven’t liked, but this one was classic Rice. Best known for The Vampire Chroniclesher prevailing thematical focus is on love, death, immortality, existentialism, and the human condition.
He fails to do anything of importance. Okay, okay, I’m being too harsh — Alex and his mother are going to throw an engagement party for Julie and Ramses, and the whole world is invited. The writing style, and writing itself is vastly different to Mrs. With superhuman intelligence and the ability to learn quickly, Ramses quickly learns the English language and, with the help of an eager Julie, is given a tour of modern London and new technology that had arisen during the past two thousand years.
One strong, mean ass, I know what I want Queen.
As with many Ramss novels, sexuality tends to be fluid. But I every time I thought it, I was reminded that it sadly wasn’t by the utter badness that was everywhere in this book.
Ra,ses started out as somewhat of the main character and turns into the nagging girlfriend that cannot live without Ramses anymore. She constantly needs saving, is needy beyond help, cries her way through the story and is utterly useless all the time.
I highly recommend it!! Of course he learns English in like 5 minutes. Finally, I found roce although the beginning of the story held my attention, the rest was really rather slow and was more of a romance novel than horror or historical. Some spoilers follow as there is context needed in reference to the original novel.
Henry is evil, treats women badly, drinks, has a gambling problem and well, he is a murder.
The Passion of Cleopatra, there is a sort-of-equivalent scene in which sparks fly, and I really appreciated that scene! It then follows him rwmses the humans who know his secret from England to Egypt, and ponders what will become of the remaining immortality elixir. I would give this book a perfect 5 stars if Ms.
The Mummy or Ramses the Damned
The Passion of Cleopatra “. So you can imagine my pleasant surprise and my subsequent ramsez about “synchronicity” and “brain worms” and “tinfoil hats” when only a day or two later an actual sequel – written by Rice in partnership with her son, Christopher – became available for review and I got hold of a copy.
Damnsd really got going. It is not that I dislike the writing. Published by Arrow first published And once this elixir is used, it cannot be undone and should it be poured into a fire, it would become dust that could then be swept by rain into the rivers or the oceans, creating immortal fish and sea creatures, or watering plants to become invulnerable.
The high point of The Mummy, or Ramses the Damned was most definitely that dinner scene in the middle of the novel, during which Alex argued with Reginald Ramsey, who he had no idea was actually eamned Egyptian pharaoh, about Egyptian history for pages on end. I would love to read more of Ramses adventures. This book was pretty good, but I have to recognize that my brain is applying some of teh enjoyment thanks to nostalgia.
Julie changed completely after meeting Ramses and became just all about him.

Stay in Touch Sign up. During that time, I picked up and tried to read this book a couple of times.
She is what the Vampire novels “Queen of the damned” wishes she could have been. He is engaged and living in Edwardian England with his finance Julie.
The overall existential melancholy is on par with other works by Ms. Also the explanations kept coming. But blame it on the Book Gods up there or something, I started with this one…and it made me question if I actually wanna give her other books a go or not. So if you, like me, prefer the likes of a prunefaced rics nightmare, dragging his foot behind him as he shambles his way to his next victim, then you may be disappointed in this reincarnation, even though the adventure aspect of the story holds interest.
