I've read them all from Interview with a Vampire to the Mayfair Witch's. I even read the heavily erotic trilogy starting with The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty. As opened minded as I claim to be, that series was a little much for me but still great writing. She's an insanly talented author but some of the Vampire novels, are...(I'm cringing here) a little boring. Whew! I got that out.
Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt- Follows Jesus's life fairly by the book (Ha, Ha, the Bible get it) Just kidding, that was terrible I know, Sorry. She fills in the details in such a way to make the story accessible to Christian and Atheist alike. Her Jesus is incredibly reachable- human and divine alike. At seven Jesus is starting to discover his divine abilites, such as raising the dead and heal the sick without the knowledge as to how he can do these things.
Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana-Rice explores the life and times of Jesus's life missing in the Bible.The story tells of his love and desire for kinswoman Avigail and the sacrifice in choosing to follow the will of his father over his human desires. The Road to Cana ends where the bible begins with the wedding in Cana in which he turns the water to wine.
Anne Rice describes the life and times of Jesus with such a stunning grace, the reader can feel the heat of the sun and the temptation of the Devil. Even non-religious readers will find these a wonderful read.
I eagerly await the next installment.
