Anne Rice continues her astonishing Vampire Chronicles in a new novel that begins where Blackwood Farm left off, and tells the story of Lestat’s quest for redemption, goodness, and the love of Rowan Mayfair.

Welcome back to Blackwood Farm. Here are all of the brilliantly conceived characters that make up the two worlds of vampires and witches: Mona Mayfair, who has come to the farm to die and is brought into the realm of the undead; her uncle, Julian Mayfair, guardian of the family, determined to forever torment Lestat for what he has done to Mona; Rowan Mayfair, brilliant neurosurgeon and witch, who finds herself dangerously drawn to the all-powerful Lestat; her husband, Michael Curry, hero of the Mayfair Chronicles, who seeks Lestat’s help with the temporary madness of his wife; Ash Templeton, a 5,000-year-old Taltos who has taken Mona’s child; and Patsy, the country-western singer, who returns to avenge her death at the hands of her son, Quinn Blackwood.

Delightfully, at the book’s centre is the Vampire Lestat, once the epitome of evil, now pursuing the transformation set in motion with Memnoch the Devil. He struggles with his vampirism and yearns for goodness, purity and love, as he saves Patsy’s ghost from the dark realm of the Earthbound, uncovers the mystery of the Taltos and unselfishly decides the fate of his beloved Rowan Mayfair.

    " It took a solid 10 chapters for me to not despise Lestat's new voice/Anne Rice's colloquial, disjointed writing style. I completely understand what she we trying to do in showing the drastic change to his character after the traumatic entanglements of previous Chronicles. But, it was almost too much to stand until the plot really picked up. I did enjoy the story and Lestat did regain some of his insightfulness by the end. But I miss the lyrical, poetic descriptions and all that seemed forced, obligatory, and rushed. "

    " A shame that this was the last in the Vampire Chronicles. It was like letting go of an old friend that had been on a long journey and then decided that they couldn't go on. "

    " I thought this was a crappy ending to the Vampire Chronicles [I'm not a big fan of Anne mixing the Mayfair Witches with the Vampires Chronicles:], but I'm afraid it will take a miracle to get her to continue the series. :( "
