Great idea...enjoyed the angel theme...little thin in plot - little kitschy but love the concept. Writing always good ( )

This was shockingly awful from an author I love. ( )

I liked the modern portions of the story with Toby in the hotel but once the Angel became involved, the trip to the past, etc, the book just did not hold me. I scanned through a few more chapters and then just gave up entirely.
I just love so many of her books: Servant of the Bones, Cry to Heaven, Violin, The Mummy and the first few Vampire books too. I should have been a shoe-in for it. Sadly, not. ( )

Great book! This is a light, sweet story about a hit man who is given the chance to use his skills to help people instead of hurting them. The author does a great job with the characters - really letting you know their feelings and motivations. I liked the positive message that no matter what mistakes someone has made, there is always an opportunity for redemption and forgiveness. If you've never read an Anne Rice book or are not a fan of her darker work, this might be a good one to try. ( )

Rice’s preoccupation with matters of conversion and faith pad out this short story into a tiresome historical novel that betrays frustrating glimpses of her old storytelling prowess... Angel Time is an unholy mishmash of crime story, detective novel, and second-rate inspirational fiction, but at least a Christian housewife or two will get an education on the horrors of the medieval blood-libel tradition. It’s nowhere near as much fun to be with Rice in heaven instead of hell; a little sin would do her writing a world of good.
