Ramses the Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra
Ramses the Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra | Anne Rice, Christopher Rice
15 posts | 13 read | 27 to read
From the iconic and bestselling author of The Mummy and The Vampire Chronicles, a mesmerizing, glamorous new tale of ancient feuds and modern passions. Ramses the Great, former pharaoh of Egypt, is reawakened by the elixir of life in Edwardian England. Now immortal with his bride-to-be, he is swept up in a fierce and deadly battle of wills and psyches against the once-great Queen Cleopatra. Ramses has reawakened Cleopatra with the same perilous elixir whose unworldly force brings the dead back to life. But as these ancient rulers defy one another in their quest to understand the powers of the strange elixir, they are haunted by a mysterious presence even older and more powerful than they, a figure drawn forth from the mists of history who possesses spectacular magical potions and tonics eight millennia old. This is a figure who ruled over an ancient kingdom stretching from the once-fertile earth of the Sahara to the far corners of the world, a queen with a supreme knowledge of the deepest origins of the elixir of life. She may be the only one who can make known to Ramses and Cleopatra the key to their immortality--and the secrets of the miraculous, unknowable, endless expanse of the universe.

This book was so reminiscent of the early Vampire Chronicles with their struggling natures. There were passages that made me gasp, laugh, and cry out. Each time I picked it back up I felt like I was falling again into Rice‘s reality and out of my own. The way the story is lined out allows for so many more books to follow, and I deeply hope they write more!

RaimeyGallant Nice review. 2y
rubyslippersreads I've been wanting to read this, but kind of want to read The Mummy first. 2y
Copwithabook @rubyslippersreads I read The Mummy so long ago that I barely remembered details from it. I don‘t think you would have to read The Mummy first, however, The Passion of Cleopatra would give you major spoilers for The Mummy. 2y

I love that I only just read the original The Mummy a couple years ago, and then she makes a second! Such fortuitous timing. Anyway, it had a great pace. I loved the new characters and the plot continuation. I was especially relieved that I liked it considering I was not a fan of the latest Vampire Chronicle, Prince Lestat. Again, Anne (and now her son!) Rice delves interestingly into concepts of immortality even without the vampire element.

What do you think about that description of love? In some ways, I think it‘s spot on. Then again, it may be love, but is that kind of love a healthy one? One can easily feel that way about someone who‘s not right for you...

I was really excited for this second installment. I can happily say I enjoyed this book immensely and really hope there are more installments to come. I would love to see how Ramses, Julie and crew navigate the coming war in Europe.

More of a #MiniBookHaul, really, but considering we just went to Costco to pick up shelves, this felt like a pretty good score! The top two are my picks and the bottom two are my husband's.

These were my other B&N purchases today.
I love the suggestions at the bottom of the receipt. Why yes I bet I would like Lumberjanes 6 since I‘m buying Lumberjanes 7.

Nebklvr Well, they wanted at least one sure bet 2y

Super excited about this Christmas gift for my mom. I read The Mummy in high school because my mom loved it and I was getting into Anne Rice at the time. It was one of my favorites of hers, and I had no idea this new story was being published. I can‘t wait to borrow it from my mom when she‘s done 😏 #booksforchristmas

I'm looking forward to start reading this ARC from #firssttoread . I haven't read the first book in the series so I'm hoping it will not affect my enjoyment of it. #TotalEclipseoftheARC
