Praise for Anne Rice and Christopher Rice's RAMSES THE DAMNED
"It's got the Edwardian feel that we've come to expect of Anne Rice's best novels, and it's got something more ... Tying feudal pasts with modern passions, Anne Rice and Christopher Rice have crafted a supreme sequel."
"An entertaining soap opera replete with romantic alliances, betrayals, and ends left tantalizingly loose as grist for sequels. Fans of both authors' work will enjoy this one."
"Mesmerizing ... mother and son have triumphed in their first team-up effort. ... An enthralling story rendered with the full flourish of a classic Rice tale ... a superb, philosophically deep sequel to 1989's The Mummy. This mother/son team-up is a resounding success and leaves us eager for more."
--Andrea Sefler, Pop Mythology
"Rice (Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, 2016) continues the tale begun almost 30 years ago in The Mummy (1989) with the help of her novelist son, Christopher (The Heavens Rise, 2013), and it has been worth the wait. This thrilling read blends historial fiction, fantasy, and romance into a book readers will not be able to put down."

That being said, I did like the story. Once the characters came together, the switching between chapters wasn't so bad, because they were in the same physical place and I didn't have to switch mind frames for whichever character we had switched to.
Julie and Ramses have started their life together, but Cleopatra is lingering in their minds. Where is she? When will she show up, if at all? Plus, the two have to concoct a story about Julie's changed eye color for all her friends. All while traveling and getting ready for their engagement party. And what a party it was! The things that happen bring them into contact with more immortals, and they make some new friends in the process.
Ultimately, the story was satisfying, but not overly exciting. I liked the book The Mummy or Ramses the Damned better than this one.
So finally I have read Cleopatra's story and found it every bit as enjoyable as the first!
This new installment did not disappoint. I appreciated the fact that Anne Rice relied on hey audience having read the previous book. Far too many contemporary authors spend too much time retelling the story from the previous novel in the series. It was a breath of fresh air.
I would consider the book to be classified as a fantasy thriller. I wouldn’t necessarily consider it a horror. The book was loaded with suspense and I found it rather hard to put it down once I started reading. The tale starts of almost at the exact moment the first book left off. You find all the characters enjoying there new found freedom to roam about the world with out a care in the world. This mentality was quickly interrupted by the return of Cleopatra, Ramses nemesis; from then on the story waits.
My only complaint, I really wouldn’t call it that was that I felt like some of the themes throughout the book were taken from two of her previous novels, The Wolves of Midwinter and Queen of the Damned. I really don’t want to go into to much more information because I absolutely hate when I read reviews and the entire story is written within them.
