Summary

The ninth novel in Anne Rice's best-selling Vampire Chronicles. Mystery and magic combine in this masterpiece from the mistress of the vampire genre.

A terrifying drama of bloodlust and betrayal is unravelling within the Blackwood Farm family. Their grand Southern mansion, set among dark cypress swamps in Louisiana, harbours terrible blood-stained secrets.

Heir to them all is the young, rash and beautiful Quinn Blackwood. But he is being controlled an evil spirit, a demon who could destroy him and others. Only the unearthly power of the vampire Lestat, combined with the earthly powers of the ubiquitous Mayfair witch clan, can save Quinn from himself and rescue the doomed girl he loves from her own mortality.

Shocking, savage and richly erotic, this novel brings us Anne Rice at her most powerfully disturbing. Here are vampire and witches, men and women, demons and doppelgangers, caught up in a maelstrom of death and destruction, blood and fire, cruelty and fate.

Sensuality, Horror and Thrill

Upon first listening to this book I was taken a back, since I had grown acustomed to the narrtations of Simon Vance who captures the escense of the characters masterfully, but as I listened I felt this fragil sensibility, this sense of the angst of Tarquin that showed perfectly on the narrators voice, the accents can get silly and inconsistent at times but help a lot for characterization, honestly on of the better stories outside the original trilogy, having a diferent protagonist and one so young being the one to carry the story, it simply made wonders, every sense of adoration for lestat and regret and contradiction beutifully expressed in David Pitu's entonation.
