Quinn Blackwood is a newly made fledgling vampire. He is trying to learn the ropes and rules of the covens. But he also has a terrible demon on his back... literally! He seeks out the Vampire Lestat for help to rid himself of this otherworldly presence that has been with him since childhood and has no become more powerful and menacing. Lestat calls in the help of a powerful witch in vampire named Merrick. Can their combined powers help Quinn to finally be free?
Vampires and witches combine in this tale. Very well written (as usual). The tale of The Vampire Quinn Blackwood is both captivating and horrifying.
I enjoyed this book very much but as with a few of her previous books the majority of the book is Quinn telling Lestat his story from beginning to end. I think it was literally the last three chapters that were the ending to the story at hand instead of backstory material. As with all of her books the backstory is extremely detailed and full of information that you can either take or leave. The roller coaster ups and downs are masterfully written but that is normal for an Anne Rice book. this is definitely a come back from her last couple of books in the chronicles series however, which was a nice relief for me.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes vampires, paranormal, witches, dark fantasy, or someone who is simply finishing the chronicle series. This is one of the better ones for sure.
