Publisher's Summary

When last the vampire Lestat was seen, he was rising from the dead in present-day New Orleans to walk again among Anne Rice's unforgettable undead. Now Lestat lives again but in a twilight world of music and memory.

His charismatic friend Louis de Pointe du Lac is tortured by the memory of the child vampire, Claudia, whom he loved and lost. He calls on Merrick, a young and gorgeous mixed-race by-blow of the rich New Orleans Mayfair clan. To save Louis' sanity, Merrick must use her black witchcraft to call up the ghost of Claudia - however dangerous this may be. There are other Mayfair spirits who will not lie still, and her search takes her close to the edge, through blood and terror, ritual and violence.

Sweeping from New Orleans to the Brazilian jungle and the island of Haiti, this is vampire literature at its most tantalising, sexy and irresistible.

Draws you in!

I love all the books in the vampire chronicles that I've read to date and listening to them in the audio version is amazing, i just close my eyes and I'm instantly transported there, I love all the characters that appear in them. I recommend them to everyone as a must read in the top 100 books everyone should read

Good!

Well this one was better than the last one! I liked Merrick, she was an interesting character. Of course I liked David too, and Louis, I've been waiting to hear more about Louis since the first book, Interview with the Vampire. The narrator, Graeme Malcolm, was much better in this one than the last one, so that helped as well.

Smooth and satisfying

Fantastic blending of vampires and Voodoo stuff from David’s past. My one very minor gripe - Aaron has a southern drawl for some reason.

One of my favourite

With this being one of my favourite books in the vampire chronicles, I wish it was never ended, couldn’t get enough. So much more of the story could of continued. Would love a story from Merrick herself.
