This was the first book that I ever read with a romantic theme, and I've been hooked ever since. My books don't have to be genre romances, but they'd better have a romantic theme in them. Anyway, I read this when I was a sophomore in high school, and loved it. I wanted to find out if I'd enjoy it as much now that I'm thirty-four, and I can say that yes, it was just as good. It can be a bit melodramatic at times, but the action is riveting, and the relationships mesmerizing. Though slow to start, don't give up on this book, because the book is well worth reading even if you have to sludge through a few slow chapters. And I will say that all my romantic heroes are sized up against Ramses even though I was unaware of it until I read this book again, twenty years later. Seems that man never left me. LOL ( )

Could. Not. Stop. Reading. Reads like a cross between a b-slasher movie and a Class-A spine tingler. Of all the Anne Rice books, I loved this one the most. ( )
