More About the Author
By the age of 30, Christopher Rice had published four New York Times bestselling thrillers, received a Lambda Literary Award and been declared one of People Magazine's Sexiest Men Alive. His first work of supernatural suspense, THE HEAVENS RISE, is a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a Horror Novel. His debut, A DENSITY OF SOULS, was published when the author was just 22 years old. A controversial and overnight bestseller, it was greeted with a landslide of media attention, much of it devoted to the fact that Christopher is the son of legendary vampire chronicler, Anne Rice. A DENSITY OF SOULS, and his second novel, THE SNOW GARDEN were recently published as e-books. These new and definitive editions feature highly personal afterwords by the author, deleted scenes and Q & A's with readers. The members of the Insight Out Book Club selected his novel BLIND FALL as one of the Best Books of 2008 and mega-bestselling thriller writer (and Jack Reacher creator) Lee Child hailed Christopher's novel LIGHT BEFORE DAY as a "book of the year". Together with his best friend, New York Times bestselling novelist Eric Shaw Quinn, Christopher launched his own Internet radio show. THE DINNER PARTY SHOW WITH CHRISTOPHER RICE & ERIC SHAW QUINN is always playing at TheDinnerPartyShow.com and every episode is available for free download from the site's show archive or on iTunes.
PRAISE FOR CHRISTOPHER RICE AND HIS FIRST WORK OF SUPERNATURAL SUSPENSE, 'THE HEAVENS RISE'
"Christopher Rice is a magician. This brilliant, subtly destabilizing novel inhales wickedness and corruption and exhales delight and enchantment. Rice executes his turns, reversals, and surprises with the pace and timing of a master. The Heavens Rise would not let me stop reading it--that's how compelling it is."
(Peter Straub, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mrs. God)
"Christopher Rice has crafted a rich and haunting world in The Heavens Rise. This story of a tormented family and the events that have led to their destruction and onward into the future is tense, tight, disturbing and made very real by a very talented author who obviously knows his way around the Big Easy. An excellent read!"
(Robert McCammon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of I Travel By Night)
"Christopher Rice never disappoints with his vivid people and places and masterful prose. He will hold you captive under his spell as his images and emotions become your own."
(Patricia Cornwell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Bed)
"Christopher Rice has written an amazing horror novel with more twists and turns than a mountain road. You'll think you know your destination . . . but you'll be wrong."
(Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dead Ever After)
