Summary

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

A vampire in the Italian age of gold...

Sixteen years old, Vittorio is the sole survivor of a bizarre and violent massacre at his father's Tuscan palazzo. Escaping to the Florence of Cosimo de' Medici, he seeks vengeance and retribution. But though he has been saved from death by a mysterious woman, he finds himself at the mercy of demonic, bloody nightmares, war and political intrigue. And, beyond even these perils, Vittorio faces being torn apart by a dangerous love.

Against a backdrop of the wonders - both sacred and profane - of Renaissance Italy, with its art and ferocity, angels and demons, Anne Rice introduces a seductive new character and creates a passionate tragic legend of doomed young love and lost innocence.

sleep inducing

I never got to the story itself because the preamble was so long and quite rambling. The american narrator was totally inappropriate for an italian vampire and his voice was soporific he had very little in the way of expression and he made the preamble worse by this. I think someone with real theatrical training and experience could bring this to life but the existing narrator cannot.
