    I did not like the beginning at all, the writing had a very old-fashioned, stilted feel at first and I thought I had make a huge mistake to pick up Rice again after such a long time. But once Ramses popped up, the story moved more smoothly for me. The alternating POVs of the various...

    Oof, yet another episode of Lifetimes of the Rich and Immortal. The writing is typical Anne Rice, without much trace of her son, Christopher, so far as I can tell. But, as with so many of her recent novels, she is falling back on increasingly hackneyed descriptions of impossibly gorgeo...

    I wish I would have read the mummy first, but I did not know until it was too late. Oh well, I guess I will go read it now. Will be interested to see if they come out with another one in the series. ...

    Slow start, with a complicated plot and many so characters to follow. It was intriguing enough to keep me invested in reading but I was thinking it just an okay read... And then right around 60% the fruition of the build-up came together and BOOM, I was completely and utterly hooked. ...

    DNF 90% Creo que es la primera vez que dejo de leer un libro cuando me queda tan poquito para terminarlo, pero es que me estaba aburriendo soberanamente. He intentado leer a ratitos durante semanas para ver si lo terminaba, porque Anne Rice solía ser de mis autoras favoritas,...

    First: If you have not read book 1 The Mummy then you need to stop here and get it and make sure you are as enamored by this story as I was and still am (this is a sequel that took almost 7 years to be written) I am not going to talk to much about the story itself, the synopsis and ...

    See my full review and much more on my blog KissinBlueKaren THE PASSION OF CLEOPATRA picks up a few months after THE MUMMY. I have to admit I didn?t re-read THE MUMMY before reading this book and I feel like maybe that was a mistake. Perhaps a re-read of both books would give me...

    If I could name a moment in time that I began reading paranormal, it would be The Mummy by Anne Rice. My husband insisted I read the book. I only did for him ? I think I said it was a Christmas present to him, that?s how much I didn?t think I?d like the genre. It turns out, I l...

    I have read Anne Rice's books, both series, for years. Let me just say that this book is disappointing on many levels. The writing style, and writing itself is vastly different to Mrs. Rice's. It is rushed in tone. Gone are her beautiful, languid, descriptive sentences and conjured sce...

    This much-anticipated sequel (almost 30 years in the making!) sputtered off to an unfortunate slow start. All characters are meandering about, going somewhere, presumably, do something, I guess. Yawn. (Okay, okay, I'm being too harsh -- Alex and his mother are going to throw an engagem...

    Ramses The Damned, The Passion of Cleopatra: Great for fans, other buyers.. maybe not as much In the mid-1990's, I was an adolescent mess. I wore a studded dog collar and wallowed (happily) in angst. I listened to a lot of Joy Division and Nine Inch Nails; I had eyeliner tattooed on...

    When I was about fourteen or so, I discovered Anne Rice. While most Riceophiles started their journeys with Interview with the Vampire, I happened upon the only Rice book  in the school library, which just so happened to be The Mummy, or Ramses the Damned. I absolute loved it, and cou...

    Unos cuantos años han pasado para que hayan sacado una continuación de Ramses. Si lo tuviese que comparar diría que es del estilo de la saga de los longevos de Eva García. Es decir dónde antes estaba Ramses ahora hay una super reina "sientifica" que es la repera limonera mucho má...

    Exciting and fantastic with a brilliant cast of characters. Light years ahead of The Mummy. I would put this Anne/Christopher Rice novel up against The Vampire Lestat, which I believe to be one of the author?s best works of fiction. Everything the reader could want, it?s here. ...

    Never really got going. I re-read before I dug into this and that was a mistake, because I got extremely annoyed by the repetition of 'things that happened in part one'. The plot isn't bad, but writing seemed stiff and forced. Also the explanations kept coming. When explained that immo...

    4 stars **What happens to your soul if you are brought back to life...after being dead for over 2000 years?*** This book takes place immediately where book 1 left off. A slow start but it definitely picks up and is pretty damn interesting. All the history Rice displays here sh...

    Inspired. Story aside, perhaps the most notable aspect of ?Ramses the Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra? is its consistency in tone. Not so much that the book's editor, as expected, did their job, but where Anne's writing ends and Chris' begins ... and vice-versa, is indistinguishab...

    I really enjoyed the pacing and prose of this book. By chapter five, I did feel overwhelmed with so many various characters introduced and being bounced around the different view points; however, that cleared up as I read further and everything coalesced. I loved the trio of Bektat...

    Years ago I loved Anne Rice's book The Mummy: Ramses the Damned. The story of a famed Egyptian Pharoah returning to life was chilling, yet totally engaging. It didn't hurt that the now immortal pharoah was incredibly sexy too. When I saw that this new book was coming out....bringing ba...

    Decent read but not gripping This didn't enthrall me like The Mummy did. An average paranormal novel from a normally above average author. I didn't ever want to give up on it, but I could put it down. Ramses didn't seem quite as see inspiring, and Cleopatra's passion seemed underwhe...

    La verdad es que leer la segunda parte de un libro del que leíste la primera parte hace 'veintimuchos' años es un poco complicado. Te acuerdas de que te gustó mucho, de las sensaciones que tuviste leyendo el libro y de que hubieras devorado una segunda parte si hubiese salido al añ...

    Woah! I can't believe I got approved for this! I've been enjoying her "reboot" of the vampire chronicles pretty well, so looking forward to a part two from another "old" book of hers! Thank you Netgalley and publisher for providing a digital copy to read and review! ...

    You know, I'm not completely sure why I'm still reading Anne Rice. I feel like I'm just reading the same story again and again to some degree. There was nothing wrong with this story as such; it reads well, and it's nice that Anne and her son Christopher are writing together these days...
