    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.

    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.

But once Ramses popped up, the story moved more smoothly for me.The alternating POVs of the various main characters m...

    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 a better persp...

    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 lov...
