By Anne Rice
Anne Rice keeps her fabulous Vampire Chronicles in a brand new novel that starts the place Blackwood Farm left off—and tells the tale of Lestat's quest for redemption, goodness, and the affection of Rowan Mayfair.
Welcome again to Blackwood Farm. listed here are the entire brilliantly conceived characters that make up the 2 worlds of vampires and witches: Mona Mayfair, who's come to the farm to die and is introduced into the world of the undead; her uncle, Julian Mayfair, father or mother of the kinfolk, decided to without end torment Lestat for what he has performed to Mona; Rowan Mayfair, excellent neurosurgeon and witch, who unearths herself dangerously interested in the omnipotent Lestat; her husband, Michael Curry, hero of the Mayfair Chronicles, who seeks Lestat's aid with the transitority insanity of his spouse; Ash Templeton, a 5,000-year-old Taltos who has taken Mona's baby; and Patsy, the country-western singer, who returns to avenge her loss of life by the hands of her son, Quinn Blackwood. Delightfully, on the book's middle is the Vampire Lestat, as soon as the epitome of evil, now pursuing the transformation set in movement with Memnoch the Devil. He struggles together with his vampirism and yearns for goodness, purity and love, as he saves Patsy's ghost from the darkish realm of the Earthbound, uncovers the secret of the Taltos and unselfishly makes a decision the destiny of his loved Rowan Mayfair.
