$70.00

Anne Rice is a fine blend of her contemporaries Stephen King and Shirley Jackson, creating vivid characters and riveting plots with eerie, supernatural backdrops. She ushered in some of the more modern qualities of the vampire genre, such as depicting vampires as sympathetic or telling stories from their perspective rather than casting them as pure villains. Yet she has also written many supernatural novels involving other fantastical beings. This volume is a prime example. Beginning in ancient Babylon, then moving through the centuries, Servant of the Bones follows Azriel, a young man who is transformed into a genie and forced to serve whoever possesses his bones. It is a riveting narrative full of magic, the occult, mysticism. It is a rare standalone novel for Rice, one adored by her dedicated readers.

This first edition, first printing is inscribed by Anne Rice on the front endpaper. It is in fine condition. In the original half cloth, fine. Text block fine. In the original gold dust jacket, near fine with only minor rubbing and one closed tear to top edge.
