In a new and major novel, the creator of fantastic universes o vampires and witches takes us now into the world of Isaiah and Jeremiah, and the destruction of Solomon's Temple, to tell the story of Azriel, Servant of the Bones.

He is ghost, genii, demon, angel--pure spirit made visible. He pours his heart out to us as he journeys from an ancient Babylon of royal plottings and religious upheavals to Europe of the Black Death and on to the modern world. There he finds himself, amidst the towers of Manhattan, in confrontation with his own human origins and the dark forces that have sought to condemn him to a life of evil and destruction.

A very near second best for Rice, in my view anyway. I haven't read them all yet but i have to say I think The Witching Hour takes the top spot for me :-) This novel is a truly unique story thats beautifully told, really makes you think about what may be after life on earth for our souls...if we indeed have souls :-)
