Summary

A Vampire Chronicles novella from the internationally best-selling Anne Rice.

In a cafe in modern-day Paris, in the aftermath of a fresh kill, the fearless and beautiful Pandora begins to tell her tale of treachery, vengeance and love stretching across two millennia. As a young mortal in Imperial Rome in the time of Caesar Augustus, Pandora was first introduced to the blood-tainted cult of Isis.

Later, in exile in Antioch, she was drawn even further into the dark, ancient rites. Now, looking back across the centuries, Pandora decides to return once more to New Orleans, to find the love of her early life, Marius, and to see once again the Vampire Lestat....

Knowledge found,

Literature I feel is a good use of the sands of my hour glass. Some year's ago I had the privilege to find myself accommodated in the basement of a NHS building. I like to read and had heard Anne Rice's literature is held in high regard. The floor I was on had a small library yet in it I found this gem of a vampire novel. Taken from the confines of my situation to the culture of ancient Rome, as a state educated man of low social economic station I found in this novel knowledge that opened my mind to information on how imperial culture functioned. The idea that a class subservient in society is respected for the skills and services they are capable of is only a small part of the story however it has brought me back to this book a number of time's. The story telling is both intelligent and first class I recommend this book.
