Angel Time by Anne Rice


Even though this book is Anne Rice's return to the supernatural after her two Christ the Lord novels, and contains her signature attention to historical detail and passionate love of music and the arts, it reads more quickly - almost breezily - than her pre-Christ the Lord novels. Thematically, it's sort of a combination between the Jesus books (focusing on angels and a spiritual transformation) and [b:Violin|31333|Violin|Anne Rice|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1194197599s/31333.jpg|2925978]. Rice doesn't satisfactorily explain why things that happened in the past would still need resolution, but bear with this book. The attractive, blond hero, Toby O'Dare - an accomplished hitman when readers first meet him - is something like Lestat if he weren't already beyond redemption.
