If you envision Saint Germain as a being like those who people Anne Rice's or Laurell Hamilton's novels you will have a surprise coming. I love many of Ms Rice's and Ms. Hamilton's books and characters. Ms. Yarbro's hero is simply different. It has two story lines dealing with Egyptian history, both very interesting. I enjoyed this book very much.

More than a third of Saint-Germain's long, long life was spent in the shadow of the Pyramids, in service to the temples of Egypt--but the tale of those years has never been told before.

In Out of the House of Life, readers of Yarbro's series can at last discover how a bloodthirsty demon, captured and enslaved by the high priests of the temple of Imhotep, was transformed into priest and physician and then, finally, into an immortal being of great power and greater wisdom.

I am a fan of Chelsea Quin Yarbro's "Saint-Germain" series. I haven't read all the books in the series, by any means, but every book I've read has been very entertaining, and full of great historical perspectives. This is a historically rich collection with just enough romance and vampire spookiness to give it a bit of "zing". This particular book , while NOT the first in the series, is - in fact - the story of Franciscus Ragoczy St. Germain's beginnings in Egypt. I have been looking for his origin tale for quite some time. While I was hoping for a more direct experience - a story of Saint Germain in Egypt, with all the adventure that might imply, Yarbro chose to show his ancient past "in reflection" - there were several scenes depicting what he was doing in Egypt over time, and how he was found and put into the Temple of Life, etc., but the story deals more with other aspects of the protagonist's archeological trip to Upper Egypt. I enjoyed reading it, finished it in 2 days, but it was a little disappointing not be in an adventure which directly involved Rogoczy Saint Germain. Still a very well researched and written novel, however.

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's extremely civilized, debonair vampire protagonist, the immortal Comte de Saint-Germain, spent more than one-third of his considerable lifetime in the land of the Pharaohs, in the very shadows of the pyramids. Although I have adventured with Saint-Germain in Renaissance Florence, where he was known as Francesco Ragoczy da San Germano, ("The Palace"); as Prinz Ragoczy of Transylvania in Paris, 1743, at the court of King Louis XV, ("Hotel Transylvania"); and as Ragoczy Sanct' Germain Franciscus, an import/shipping magnate living in the Rome of Emperor Nero, ("Blood Games"), I have learned little of the millennia he spent in Egypt - until now! With "Out of the House of Life," Ms. Yarbro takes the reader back to the time of our hero's origins - a period when man was much newer to the earth - over 6000 years ago.

He was thought to be a demon and chained in an underground dungeon in Ninevah and Babylon. He was sold to the High Priest of Judea and then given, as tribute, to the Pharaoh Hatshepsut. Shipped with other slaves to Egypt - once called the Black Land - he was sent to serve the god at the Temple of Imhotep in Memphis, the House of Life, a sanctuary for the dying. It is here that the vampire, (now known as Saint-Germain), rises over the centuries from a despised slave to a learned physician and then becomes "Sanh Zhrman," the wise high priest of Imhotep.

Sanh Zhrman's tale is interwoven with that of his beloved Madelaine de Montalia's, whom he met in eighteenth century France. There they loved passionately and when her life was endangered to the point of death, he made her immortal. Madelaine has joined an archeological expedition to fulfill a lifelong dream to explore Egyptian ruins, and hopefully to discover the ancient site of the House of Life. She finds, along with treasures and secrets long buried beneath the desert sands, danger from grave robbers, serpents, scorpions, and most of all from her expedition leader and his cohorts. Mlle. Montalia also discovers temporary love, and a means to quench her thirst, with the handsome mortal Dr. Falke.

The correspondence between Saint-Germain and Montalia is the device through which the narrative unfolds.

I'm hooked on Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Comte de Saint-Germain series. The emphasis in these novels is on well written historical fiction rather than on the usual vampire fare. If you envision Saint Germain as a being like those who people Anne Rice's or Laurell Hamilton's novels you will have a surprise coming. Just an aside here...I love many of Ms Rice's and Ms. Hamilton's books and characters. Ms. Yarbro's hero is simply different. He IS a hero, not an anti-hero. You won't find fangs, gore, horror and supernatural violence here. He does need blood to survive, as does Madelaine - but the human donor must be willing to give a pint or two or these vampires won't drink. And true emotional attachments nourish Saint-Germain and Madelaine as much as the blood they take. So the concept of "love" and affection figure strongly in their eternal lives.

"Out of the House of Life" is rich in characters, historical detail, storyline and suspense. I highly recommend it.

This backstory came later in the series, but no matter what order you read these books in, it stands alone or in harmony with the others. The historical details of ancient Egypt are engrossing, and it's easy to get lost in the enjoyment of this unique story of a vampire discovering and refining his humanity. Sure we have modern stories on this subject, but this was the foundation on which the 2000s vampire stories sprang up, and nobody does it better than Yarbro.

I have enjoyed reading Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's novels for many years. While The Count's adventures provide entertainment, Yarbro provides her brand of historic detail which brings forth a realistic depth to her novels that makes for very satisfying reading.
This novel filled in the details of Count Saint-Germain's time in early Egypt, and how he came to embrace life and love. It is a shame that not all of this series are available as an e-book download. But the speed of delivery, excellent used condition, and reasonable cost made ordering this book a real treat.

Wish it had more from Ancient Egypt in it!!!! Other than that a very good read.

This book is one of the best in Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Saint Germain vampire series. It has two story lines dealing with Egyptian history, both very interesting. I enjoyed this book very much.

Every one of the Chelsea Quinn Yarbro novels is an enjoyable vampire story. For those that like this genre there is none better.
Received in good condition and as described.
