Azriel, our hero, is telling his story to Jonathan, a history professorReviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 February 2015
The first 50 or so pages were a little slow, but then I was hooked and didn't want to put it down. Definitely not a light read. It's about a man in ancient middle east who ends up being used in a ceremony to replace a god--they paint his body with "gold" and let it harden to make him a statue. Before the gold killed him, he was burnt alive and his spirit remained with his golden bones to be controlled as a killing spirit by whoever figured out how to release his spirit from the bones. It ends up being about his transition from being controlled by the bones to controlling them himself and learning to manifest his powers through love and mercy.
I love this bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 November 2012
I loved it the first time I read it, years ago on loan, but couldn't remember who wrote it and wasn't sure of the title even though I remembered the story in great detail. So when I came across it I snapped it up. Then I found another copy in a bag of books someone gave me. I've taken that one to my house in France so that I can read it again whenever the fancy takes me. I re-read favourite books many times and this one fits that category.
