Publisher's Summary

From the iconic and best-selling 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.

I am hungry for more......

OMG, I love this story!!!! Thank you, Anne, and thank you, Christopher, for your masterful storytelling. It has been a long time coming.

I love the new layers and new characters in the story.

I did not like the narrator, however. she told the story beautifully BUT SHE YELLS!! Please, if she narrates the next book, please don't yell, it distracts from the story.

Poor narration

I’ve read and enjoyed all Anne Rice books.
This is the First one I’ve listen to.... what a shame ?!
Started well... then the screeching, and the pronunciation of the word passage well really...! Will not be listening to this narrator again very irritating.

Unlistenable

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

i’ve been a fan of Anne Rice for over 25 years and loved everything she has ever done but I found this painful to listen to. i would recommend anyone considering to buy this to try reading the book yourself. The narrator totally destroys it. i just found it unbearable, just plain horrible.
