Title: Servant of the Bones
Author: Anne Rice
File Type: Mobi
Description:Amazon.com ReviewHer first book since From Publishers WeeklyNeither a vampire nor a witch nor a mummy, but a genie provides the focus of Rices latest (after Memnoch the Devil). The queen of high-decadent gothic deviates from her formula of interlacing spirituality and carnality here only in the novels latter pages do lusty sensuousness and brisk pacing leaven a series of cerebral metaphysical struggles. This unusual approach arises from the central dilemma of the story. Servant of the Bones Azriel is a genii who, until his emergence in 1995 New York, is only a shell filled with spirit, not a corporeal presence ripe for Rices usual dark eroticism. In the novels first half, Azriel tells his tale born a Hebrew in Babylon at the time of Cyrus, he is sacrificed in order to free his people, his body boiled down to golden bones. He then is cursed by a necromancer to be bound to the bones. Over the millennia, he is a spirit at the beck and call of a series of Masters who possess his casket. When Azriel calls himself into human form in the present day, he encounters plastic, airplanes?and the Temple of the Mind, a cult of computer-created creed that threatens to kill two-thirds of the earths population. Azriels emergence as a sensual being and the suspense generated by the Temples Last Days project will help readers to forget the books initial 300 pages, in which they must track Azriel from swirling particles to thickening flesh. Yet Rices impeccable research into science, history and Jewish scholarship will probably leave readers impressed and entertained. 1,000,000 first printing BOMC and QPB main selections. br 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Title: The Wild Child
Author: Mary Jo Putney
File Type: Mobi
When Dominic Renbourne is visited by his identical twin Kyle, he steels himself for the sort of bitter confrontation that has marked their meetings for years. But when Kyle makes an exceptional request, and offers some family land as a bribe, Dominic feels his defenses failing. Unable to deny the desperation in his brothers eyes--or the chance to finally inherit some of their familys wealth--he agrees to an unusual charade. Dominic will temporarily take his brothers place in the courtship of the beautiful, if possibly mad, Lady Meriel Grahame.
The mysterious Lady Meriel is as unpredictable as was rumored. After her recovery from a childhood kidnapping, she turned inside to her secret world of silence and the comfort of her lush garden. Though two elderly relatives and an Indian caretaker have since watched over her, Meriel can not communicate, and flees from the external threat that Dominic presents.
Unable to dismiss Meriels odd behaviors as insanity, Dominic seeks to uncover the source of her pain and the core of her complex personality. Warmed by his patient compassion and gentle encouragement, Meriel begins to open up to him. But the pressures of society and the growing threat of her commitment to an asylum force Meriel to choose between these two worlds. Helplessly in love with her, Dominic searches for a way to help her find her true identity, while continuing to conceal his own.
When switched identities, arranged marriages, and even the mildest case of insanity meet, a novel is bound to be an absolutely entertaining hoot. As well as creating sympathetic characters and their realistic development, Mary Jo Putney has a talent for capturing the complex rivalries of siblings and the conflict between our internal and external lives. Though the arrival of a final plot twist is distracting and unnecessary, Putney has once again written a solid historical novel that should support her reputation as one of the finest romance writers of our time. --Nancy R.E. OBrien
From Publishers Weekly
Lady Meriel Grahame, the eighth heroine in Putneys Fallen Angels series, has lived in a world of self-imposed silence since the night of violence in colonial India that claimed her parents lives. Deemed mad by her guardian uncles (one good, one evil), looked after by two widows (both good), she lives a life of fey barefoot willfulness, making weedy centerpieces for the mahogany dining table and communing with the animals who roam the gorgeous grounds of her ancestral home, Warfield. Lord Grahame, her evil uncle, would like to see her locked up in a mental asylum (Putney dwells on the horrors of early 19th-century modern psychiatry), but her good uncle, Lord Amworth, thinks a wedding and bedding might cure herAand the time is now, while Grahame is out of the country. Since infancy, Meriel has been pledged to Kyle Renbourne, Lord Maxwell, the future earl of Wrexham. Heart-bound to escort his dying mistress home to Spain, Kyle dispatches his twin brother, Dominic, to court Meriel in his place. The novel is most enjoyable precisely where its most predictable, and its in the all-consuming attraction, body and spirit, between Dominic and Meriel that it reaches its peak. Allowed unthinkable liberties, Meriel paints henna designs on Dominics trembling torso, laughs at his morality and offers up an irresistible bargaining chip: if she may have his body, he shall hear her voice. Her words may lack the eloquence of her silence, and the second half of the novel is altogether the weaker, but theres satisfaction for readers who like to see villains die and everyone else live happily ever after.
