A young veteran of the US Army, River Roulet is struggling to shake the horrors of his past. War is behind him, but the memories remain.

Rio de Janeiro is everything he hoped for and more. In the lead-up to Carnaval, the city is alight with music, energy, and life. With a few friends at his side, River seems to be pulling his life together at last.

Then he meets the enchanting Natal, an impassioned journalist and free spirit—who lives with the gangster that rules much of Rio.

CA – Ramses The Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra Launch Party

Meet the iconic and bestselling author of The Mummy and The Vampire ChroniclesAnne Rice and son Christopher Rice at the Grove’s Barnes & Noble on Tuesday, November 21st at 7:00 PM as they reawaken Ramses The Great in their mesmerizing and glamorous new tale of ancient feuds and modern passions in Ramses The Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra.

Ramses the Great, former pharaoh of Egypt, is reawakened by the elixir of life in Edwardian England. Now immortal with his bride-to-be, he is swept up in a fierce and deadly battle of wills and psyches against the once-great Queen Cleopatra. Ramses has reawakened Cleopatra with the same perilous elixir whose unworldly force brings the dead back to life. But as these ancient rulers defy one another in their quest to understand the powers of the strange elixir, they are haunted by a mysterious presence even older and more powerful than they, a figure drawn forth from the mists of history who possesses spectacular magical potions and tonics eight millennia old. This is a figure who ruled over an ancient kingdom stretching from the once-fertile earth of the Sahara to the far corners of the world, a queen with a supreme knowledge of the deepest origins of the elixir of life. She may be the only one who can make known to Ramses and Cleopatra the key to their immortality—and the secrets of the miraculous, unknowable, endless expanse of the universe.
