Win a copy of Angel Time by Anne Rice
I liked this book. It isn't at all what I expected. But that may be a good thing! It's not a romance. It's actually about a serial killer. I enjoyed Ms. Rice's deep characterization, especially with her darker characters. Though it isn't the normal type of book I would read, it kept my attention and always kept me wondering what was going to happen.
Here's a blurb about the story:
Toby O'Dare, a contract killer of underground fame on assignment to kill once again. A souless soul, a dead man walking, he lives under a seris of aliases. Into O'Dare's nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a chance to save rather than destroy lives. O'Dare, who long ago dreamt of being a priest but instead came to embody danger and violence, seizes his chance. Now he is carried back through the ages to 13th century England, to dark realms where accusation of ritual murder have been made against Jews... In this primitive setting, O'Dare begins his perilous quest for salvation, a journe of danger and flight, loyalty and betrayal, selflessness and love.
In order to enter your name for the contest, you must leave a comment (email address included) and say something about angels. What you think of them. Have you ever met one? What do you think they do? Quote a verse from the Bible about them. Anything like that.
Have a great weekend!
