Into O'Dare's nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a chance to save rather than destroy lives. O'Dare, who long ago dreamt of being a priest but instead came to embody danger and violence, seizes his chance. Now he is carried back through the ages to 13th-century England, to dark realms where accusations of ritual murder have been made against Jews, where children suddenly die or disappear.
In this primitive setting, O'Dare begins his perilous quest for salvation, a journey of danger and flight, loyalty and betrayal, selflessness and love.

Good, but the resolution felt a bit anticlimactic
As usual, Anne Rice's writing voice is mesmerizing, and she makes you care for and get involved with her characters. In this book, though, the main character was built up so well at the beginning and had so much to overcome in order to be redeemed that the ultimate conclusion of his mission felt a bit anticlimactic. I guess I was looking for a bit more action than introspection, but I still enjoyed the book.

Great story, too short, like a teaser
I liked the book. I've always liked Anne Rice, and was curious about this "new" Anne. I liked it, all in all. But I wanted more. I thought it would be one of many lessons, not just the one. I wasn't paying attention to how much time was left in the story. If I had been reading in a book, I guess I would have been more prepared. I was disappointed in the end, like I had missed the second part of the book. Perhaps there is another coming. It was too short. I really felt like I only got half the story.
