      Servant of the Bones by Anne Rice is yet another masterpiece from an amazing author. Unlike her numerous other bodies of work, this book is not about vampires. But still deals with the supernatural and takes the form of an interview, which fits perfectly with her style.

      At this digital age, I do not own many books in print format. I borrow books from the library, I download them on kindle or I read them on my computer. I have gotten rid of most of my printed books long time ago. However, I do own a paperback copy of the Servant of the Bones. And this tells just how much I love and respect this book.

      I love this book because it is the


      best example of the important rule of writing fiction- you can invent a whole world that does not resemble reality, but you have to keep the human element real. You have to keep the emotions, the fears, the relationships just the way they are in real life and how we understand them.

      Although the book tells the story of Azriel, the most powerful spirit to ever walk the earth, as he tells it to a professor on his sabbatical, it is the story of a real man. And you really can’t help but getting sucked into it as the story progresses and become more and more involves. Azriel used to be a Jewish young man in Babylon. But he had a special ability- he ...


      • could see and talk to the main Babylonian god -Murdock. It is this relationship that took his life. A new ruler who needed to enter the city wanted to make an impression on the people. And since he was known for his relationship with Murdock, Azriel was selected to represent him in the parade. He was supposed to be looking like a living golden statue of Murdock- a living god. Only to do that he would have to be covered with real gold, which would kill him.

        Azriel agreed to do that to help his people. He thought that he was only going to sacrifice his body, but he was cheated and betrayed. The old witch who was responsible for mixing the gold mixture tried

        to turn him into a genie instead- a servant who would do the bidding of whomever possessed the young man’s gold covered bones.

        The process was interrupted and Azriel became the most powerful spirit on earth with free will. He tells the story of his afterlife in the following centuries. And of course, there is a reason why he was called out of his bones just right then- there was an innocent lady to avenge and a world to save.

        Servant of the bones has all the right ingredients for a thrilling read- mystery, action, thrill, urgency, love, anger, vengeance, compassion and a really good pace. I would recommend reading this book to anyone who is not afraid of a little bit of the supernatural.
