    In the first four Vampire Chronicles, Anne Rice summoned up for us worlds that are fantastic and distant, making them as resonant, real, and immediate as our own. Now, in her most daring and darkest novel yet, she takes us, with Lestat, into the mythical world that is most important to us - into the realms of our own theology.
