Heavenly. The post-vampire writing of Anne Rice probably attracts a different audience, although her writing remains constant in delivering an engaging and imaginative story that captivates readers. Her latest novel, Angel Time, presents a contemporary character, Toby O’Dare, who meets an angel after Toby has murdered someone in a California hotel room. This angel needs Toby for a mission in 13th century England, and Toby agrees to go there to help people who are outcasts and suffering persecution. Rice’s skill in plot, character and dialogue provides reliable and escapist entertainment for those readers who lean toward this genre. Of course anyone who believes in guardian angels will be delighted by Angel Time.
