Between the Bookends

The Lincoln County Public Library has great books and movies for patrons to take home and enjoy. With summer upon us, now is the perfect time for that great book to relax while reading by the pool, at the beach or just enjoying cooling down indoors after a hot day outside. This week’s featured book release is Angel time, (adult) by Anne Rice.

Anne Rice returns to the mesmerizing storytelling that has captivated readers for more than three decades in a tale of unceasing suspense set in time past - a metaphysical thriller about angels and assassins.

The novel opens in the present. At its center: Toby O’Dare - a contract killer of underground fame on assignment to kill once again. A soulless soul, a dead man walking, he lives under a series of aliases - just now: Lucky the Fox - and takes his orders from “The Right Man.”

Into O’Dare’s nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a chance to save rather than destroy lives. O’Dare, who long ago dreamt of being a priest but instead came to embody danger and violence, seizes his chance. Now he is carried back through the ages to thirteenth-century England, to dark realms where accusations of ritual murder have been made against Jews, where children suddenly die or disappaer.....In this primitive setting, O’Dare begins his perilous quest for salvation, a journey of danger and flight, loyalty and betrayal, selflessness and love.

So what else is new? DVDs are also available for children and adults. Some of the titles now available are, The Reef, The Retrievers, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Madeline Meet Me In Paris, Stagecoach with John Wayne and Race to Witch Mountain.
