Anne Rice - Lestat ​herceg
A ​világ megmaradt vérszívói közt káosz uralkodik... kárhozat és tűz, törvénytelenül burjánzó parazitasereg tombol mindenütt... Egy Hang riasztja fel a föld mélyén szendergő öreg vámpírokat, azt parancsolja, válogatás nélkül égessék meg elszabadult ivadékaikat Párizstól Bombayig, Hong Kongtól San Franciscóig, szerte a világon. Fogy az idő. Ismerős hőseink csapata, Louis, Armand és a legendás Lestat herceg, aki visszatér önkéntes száműzetéséből, nem kisebb kalandra vállalkozik, mint hogy rátalál arra a valakire - vagy valamire -, akinek a Hangja ezt a rejtélyes világot vezérli, és kideríti a szándékait. Napjaink New Yorkjától az ókori Egyiptomig, Karthágótól a reneszánsz Velencéig végső küldetésre ébrednek az árnyékvilág legősibb és leghatalmasabb erői. Anne Rice legújabb regénye ott veszi fel a fonalat, ahol majdnem negyed százada a Lestat, a vámpír abbamaradt, hogy újult erővel ragadjon magával bennünket a Vámpírkrónikák feledhetetlen világa. De ez a könyv akkor is letehetetlen, ha nem ismerjük az előzményeket: az egész vámpíruniverzumot magában foglalja.

Anne Rice - The ​Claiming Of Sleeping Beauty
In ​the traditional folk tale "Sleeping Beauty," the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. Anne Rice's retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire.

Anne Rice - The ​Mummy
With ​this kick-off to a new series, Vampire Chronicler Rice abandons her troupe of nocturnals for the living dead of another kind. In a tale that's part horror and part romance, Egyptian King Ramses, made immortal in his youth, is awakened from self-imposed dormancy and deposited in 1914 London. Ramses's introduction to modern times is charming but slow. The plot, however, revs up a bit when he returns to Cairo and runs into an old girlfriend. Much in this book will be familiar to Rice's fans, except in this case it doesn't work. The characters are mostly boring and the conflict is flimsy. You know nothing bad is going to happen to anybody--and nothing does. You're also cheated out of a genuine conclusion, which is both dissatisfying and unfair. Stick to those blood drinkers, Anne, and let the sleeping mummies lie. - Michael Rogers, "Library Journal"

Anne Rice - Pandora új vámpírtörténetei
A Vámpírkrónikák, A Csontok Szolgálója és A Múmia írója ismét a vámpírok világába kalauzol bennünket. Új regényének főhőse Pandora, a vámpír-istennő, aki két évezred távlatából meséli el halandó, majd halhatatlan sorsát. Miközben Pandora a kelta Mariusszal, a legősibb vámpírok őrzőjével rója az évszázadokat, történelmi korok és helyszínek kaleidoszkópja tárul szemünk elé: Augustus császár Rómája, a hellenisztikus Antiokheia és a Közel-Kelet pezsgő birodalma, majd az első keresztények világa . Az élettől lüktető helyszínek jól ellenpontozzák a halhatatlanság mérhetetlen magányát, melyet a vámpíroknak újra és újra meg kell élniük, amíg az idő szele mai világunk nyüzsgésébe nem sodorja őket...

Anne Rice - Távol ​Egyiptomtól
Miután ​befejezte két legendaciklusát, melyeknek eddigi pályafutását szentelte, Anne Rice az evangéliumok és a legszélesebb körben elfogadott újszövetségi kutatások alapján megírta legbátrabb, az ÚR KRISZTUS gyermekkoráról szóló könyvét, mely átütő erővel idézi meg a történetet elbeszélő Jézus hangját, személyiségét és szavait. "Magával ragadó, elgondolkodtató történet a gyermek Jézus ismeretlen éveiről... A képszerű, elegáns próza és karakterek diadala... Az Úr Krisztus átmenet a történelmi regény és Tolsztoj evangéliuma között. Született misztikusként, gyógyítóként, prófétaként, de legfőbbképpen hús-vér gyermekként mutatja be Jézust... Lényegében misztériumtörténet egy gyermekről, aki próbálja megérteni csodás adottságait és a születését övező előjeleket... A reá nehezedő felelősség súlyával birkózó fiú alakja teljesen hiteles - mégis van valami természetfölötti empátiájában és ragyogó intelligenciájában, ami egyedivé teszi... "Anne Rice ezzel a regénnyel valóban meggyőző Jézus-képet tár az olvasói elé, írása meghaladja a puszta történetmondást, és szinte már hitvallásnak tekinthető." (Kirkus Reviews)

Anne Rice - Beauty's ​Release
For ​the uninhibited listener of adult fairy tales...the conclusion of Anne Rice's exquisitely erotic trilogy. An unforgettable journey to the forbidden side of passion. The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty and Beauty's Punishment took readers and listeners only partway through Anne Rice's explicit, teasing exploration of the psychology of human desire. Now her elegantly written, erotically charged retelling of the Sleeping Beauty myth concludes, taking listeners through a doorway that leads to the hidden regions of the psyche and the heart. In Beauty's Release, Beauty's adventures on the dark side of sexuality make her the bound captive of an Eastern Sultan and a prisoner in the exotic confines of the harem. As this voluptuous adult fairy tale moves toward conclusion, all Beauty's encounters with the myriad variations of sexual fantasy are presented in a sensuous, rich prose that intensifies this exquisite rendition of love's secret world, and makes the Beauty series an incomparable study of erotica.

Anne Rice - Faye Perozich - The ​Tale of The Body Thief
Lestat ​is the decadent, corrupt night-dweller with a craving for human blood. Now transformed into a Dark God, he must make a journey into the heart of darkness, where he must confront his own cursed immortality and the emptiness of his soul.

Anne Rice - Servant ​of the Bones
It ​is an autobiographical account of the creation and subsequent existence of a genii, Azriel. It is a story told as a fireside chat and it is rich with historical accounts of Azriel's life as a displaced Jew/rich merchant's son in Babylon at the time of its conquest by Cyrus the Persian. There are also glimpses of life in ancient Miletus, in Strasbourg during a pogram, and New York City of the 1990s. Explanation of the novel's title: Throughout the novel, Azriel is struggling to understand whether he is a ghost, a demon, or an angel. He is trying to understand why his god has denied him the Stairway to Heaven by allowing him to be made into an immortal spirit who is bound to the gold-encased bones of his mortal body. As a genie, he must obey the Master of those bones (whoever has them at the moment) and become the Master's Servant of good or evil. Thus the title, Servant of the Bones. Plot summary Azriel is telling the story of his transformation into and subsequent existence as an immortal genii who is forced to obey the Master who calls him. Over centuries, Azriel becomes less obedient to the Masters and a warning is placed on the casket of his bones that he is not to be summoned lest his evil be loosed upon the undeserving world. After many centuries of rest, Azriel finds himself awake and in New York City, a dazed witness to the murder of a young woman, Esther Belkin. He becomes inexplicably obsessed with the desire to avenge her death and to find out who called him into the physical world in time to see Esther die but not in time to save her. This quest leads him to the girl's stepfather, Gregory Belkin, who would pay any price to fulfill his messianic dream via his immense worldwide religious organization, the Temple of the Mind of God. As his quest approaches its climax, he risks his supernatural powers to forestall an attempt to destroy the world thus redeeming what was denied him for so long: his own eternal human soul.

Anne Rice - The ​Vampire Armand
Readers ​of her 1995 novel, Memnoch the Devil, will recall that the vampire Armand ended his existence by stepping into the sun. Since he was a popular character from earlier tales, a resounding protest from fans followed. In response, Rice concocted a way in this, her seventh Vampire Chronicle since Interview with the Vampire (1976), to raise Armand from the dead. He is, in fact, the narrator of this story, in which he looks back on his earthly existence, revisiting his apprenticeship in 16th-century Venice to the regal vampire artist, Marius De Romanus, who saved his life with the kiss of immortality. Afterward, Armand returned to his Russian homeland, but when disaster parted him from Marius, he became the nihilistic leader of a pack of Parisian vampires. Rice offers exquisite details of erotic romps and political intrigues while reprising other material familiar to her fans, but finally returns to the pressing question of what happened to Armand in the sun's lethal rays. She supplies a vivid and resonant description of the experience, set against the counterpoint of Beethoven's Appassionata. Unfortunately, she dims the effect by dragging Armand through rambling scenes involving two odd children, Sybelle and Benji. Otherwise, this is a lavishly poetic recital in which Armand struggles with the fragility of religious belief. The final scene is a stunner.

Anne Rice - Called ​Out of Darkness
In ​2005, Anne Rice startled her readers with her novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt, and by revealing that, after years as an atheist, she had returned to her Catholic faith. Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana followed. And now, in her powerful and haunting memoir, Rice tells the story of the spiritual transformation that produced a complete change in her literary goals. She begins with her girlhood in New Orleans as the devout child in a deeply religious Irish Catholic family. She describes how, as she grew up, she lost her belief in God, but not her desire for a meaningful life. She writes about her years in radical Berkeley, where her career as a novelist began with the publication of Interview with the Vampire, soon to be followed by more novels about otherworldly beings, about the realms of good and evil, love and alienation, pageantry and ritual, each reflecting aspects of her often agonizing moral quest. She writes about loss and tragedy (her mother’s drinking; the death of her daughter and, later, her beloved husband, Stan Rice); about new joys; about the birth of her son, Christopher; about the family’s return in 1988 to the city of New Orleans, the city that inspired so much of her work. She tells how after an adult lifetime of questioning, she experienced the intense conversion and consecration to Christ that lie behind her most recent novels. For her readers old and new, this book explores her continuing interior pilgrimage.

Anne Rice - The ​Wolves of Midwinter
The ​tale of THE WOLF GIFT continues . . . In Anne Rice’s surprising and compelling best-selling novel, the first of her strange and mythic imagining of the world of wolfen powers (“I devoured these pages . . . As solid and engaging as anything she has written since her early vampire chronicle fiction” —Alan Cheuse, The Boston Globe; “A delectable cocktail of old-fashioned lost-race adventure, shape-shifting and suspense” —Elizabeth Hand, The Washington Post), readers were spellbound as Rice imagined a daring new world set against the wild and beckoning California coast. Now in her new novel, as lush and romantic in detail and atmosphere as it is sleek and steely in storytelling, Anne Rice brings us once again to the rugged coastline of Northern California, to the grand mansion at Nideck Point—to further explore the unearthly education of her transformed Man Wolf. The novel opens on a cold, gray landscape. It is the beginning of December. Oak fires are burning in the stately flickering hearths of Nideck Point. It is Yuletide. For Reuben Golding, now infused with the wolf gift and under the loving tutelage of the Morphenkinder, this Christmas promises to be like no other . . . as he soon becomes aware that the Morphenkinder, steeped in their own rituals, are also celebrating the Midwinter Yuletide festival deep within Nideck forest. From out of the shadows of the exquisite mansion comes a ghost—tormented, imploring, unable to speak yet able to embrace and desire with desperate affection . . . As Reuben finds himself caught up with the passions and yearnings of this spectral presence and the preparations for the Nideck town Christmas reach a fever pitch, astonishing secrets are revealed, secrets that tell of a strange netherworld, of spirits—centuries old—who possess their own fantastical ancient histories and taunt with their dark, magical powers . . .

Anne Rice - Vittorio ​the Vampire
Rice ​has called Vittorio her vampire version of Romeo and Juliet. The hunky Vittorio is sweet 16 and "incalculably rich" in 15th-century Italy, the epoch of the Medicis and Vittorio's favorite painter, madly passionate Filippo Lippi. Florence is to Vittorio what New Orleans is to Interview with the Vampire. One night, Vittorio's family is butchered by vampires. The gorgeous Ursula spares Vittorio to make him her reluctant undying sweetheart. Ursula's ravishings of Vittorio recall the erotica Rice wrote under her own name and the pen names Anne Rampling and A.N. Roquelaure. Vittorio flees to the creepy town of Santa Maddalana, which has made a pact to sacrifice its young to Lord Florian's vampire horde. Vittorio is bent on revenge as he invades the eerie Court of the Ruby Grail (i.e. blood), as angry with the child-sacrificing humans as he is with Florian's fang gangsters. Torn between lust, murderous rage, and vampire thirst, Vittorio is one interestingly troubled soul.

Anne Rice - Beauty's ​Punishment
An ​erotic novel of discipline, love, and surrender for the enjoyment of men and women. This sequel to The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, the first of Anne Rice's elegantly written volumes of erotica, continues her explicit, teasing exploration of the psychology of human desire. Now Beauty, having indulged in a secret and forbidden infatuation with the rebellious slave Prince Tristan, is sent away from the Satyricon-like world of the Castle. Sold at auction, she will soon experience the tantalizing punishments of "the village," as her education in love, cruelty, dominance, submission, and tenderness is turned over to the brazenly handsome Captain of the Guard. And once again Rice's fabulous tale of pleasure and pain dares to explore the most primal and well-hidden desires of the human heart.

Anne Rice - Cry ​to Heaven
The ​acclaimed author of Servant of the Bones makes real for us the exquisite and otherworldly society of the eighteenth-century castrati, the delicate and alluring male sopranos whose graceful bodies and glorious voices brought them the adulation of the royal courts and grand opera houses of Europe, men who lived as idols, concealing their pain as they were adored as angels, yet shunned as half men.

Anne Rice - The ​Wolf Gift
A ​daring new departure from the inspired creator of The Vampire Chronicles (“unrelentingly erotic . . . unforgettable”—The Washington Post), Lives of the Mayfair Witches (“Anne Rice will live on through the ages of literature”—San Francisco Chronicle), and the angels of The Songs of the Seraphim (“remarkable”—Associated Press). A whole new world—modern, sleek, high-tech—and at its center, a story as old and compelling as history: the making of a werewolf, reimagined and reinvented as only Anne Rice, teller of mesmerizing tales, conjurer extraordinaire of other realms, could create. The time is the present. The place, the rugged coast of Northern California. A bluff high above the Pacific. A grand mansion full of beauty and tantalizing history set against a towering redwood forest. A young reporter on assignment from the San Francisco Observer . . . An older woman welcoming him into her magnificent family home that he has been sent to write about and that she must sell with some urgency . . . A chance encounter between two unlikely people . . . An idyllic night—shattered by horrific unimaginable violence, the young man inexplicably attacked—bitten—by a beast he cannot see in the rural darkness . . . A violent episode that sets in motion a terrifying yet seductive transformation, as the young man, caught between ecstasy and horror, between embracing who he is evolving into and fearing what he will become, soon experiences the thrill of the wolf gift. As he resists the paradoxical pleasure and enthrallment of his wolfen savagery and delights in the power and (surprising) capacity for good, he is caught up in a strange and dangerous rescue and is desperately hunted as “the Man Wolf” by authorities, the media, and scientists (evidence of DNA threatens to reveal his dual existence) . . . As a new and profound love enfolds him, questions emerge that propel him deeper into his mysterious new world: questions of why and how he has been given this gift; of its true nature and the curious but satisfying pull towards goodness; of the profound realization that there may be others like him who are watching—guardian creatures who have existed throughout time who possess ancient secrets and alchemical knowledge. And throughout it all, the search for salvation for a soul tormented by a new realm of temptations, and the fraught, exhilarating journey, still to come, of being and becoming, fully, both wolf and man.

Anne Rice - Az ​út Kánáig
Anne ​Rice Krisztus életét bemutató mesteri sorozatának második kötete. Júdeára száraz, poros, feszültséggel terhes tél köszönt. Mindenki, aki ismeri és szereti Jézust, arra vár, hogy valamilyen jel érkezzen, mely megmutatja, melyik utat fogja végül választani. Vízbe merítése után végre kész szembenézni a sorsával.

Az evangéliumokon és a legelismertebb újszövetségi kutatásokon alapuló "Az út Kánáig" ereje Anne Rice-nak az írást átható mély érzelmeiből és a Jézust szinte elénk varázsoló elbeszélésmódjából ered.

Anne Rice - Vér ​és arany
Mariust, ​a római birodalom büszke szenátorát elrabolják és átkényszerítik a vér sötét birodalmába, ahol neki kell oltalmaznia a vámpírok királynőjét és királyát, a természetfölötti fajta hatalmának letéteményeseit.

Ám sorsa a mi korunkban dől el, az őserdő mélyén, ahol a világ első vámpírjainál keresi az igazságot...

Anne Rice - Of ​Love and Evil
“I ​dreamed a dream of angels. I saw them and heard them in a great and endless galactic night. I saw the lights that were these angels, flying here and there, in streaks of irresistible brilliance . . . I felt love around me in this vast and seamless realm of sound and light . . . And something akin to sadness swept me up and mingled my very essence with the voices who sang, because the voices were singing of me . . . ” Thus begins Anne Rice’s lyrical, haunting new novel, a metaphysical thriller of angels and assassins that once again summons up dark and dangerous worlds set in times past. Anne Rice takes us to other realms, this time to the world of fifteenth-century Rome, a city of domes and rooftop gardens, rising towers and crosses beneath an ever-shifting layer of clouds; familiar hills and tall pines . . . of Michelangelo and Raphael, of the Holy Inquisition and of Leo X, second son of a Medici, holding forth from the papal throne . . .

Anne Rice - Christopher Rice - The ​Passion of Cleopatra
From ​the iconic and bestselling author of The Mummy and The Vampire Chronicles, a mesmerizing, glamorous new tale of ancient feuds and modern passions. Ramses the Great, former pharaoh of Egypt, is reawakened by the elixir of life in Edwardian England. Now immortal with his bride-to-be, he is swept up in a fierce and deadly battle of wills and psyches against the once-great Queen Cleopatra. Ramses has reawakened Cleopatra with the same perilous elixir whose unworldly force brings the dead back to life. But as these ancient rulers defy one another in their quest to understand the powers of the strange elixir, they are haunted by a mysterious presence even older and more powerful than they, a figure drawn forth from the mists of history who possesses spectacular magical potions and tonics eight millennia old. This is a figure who ruled over an ancient kingdom stretching from the once-fertile earth of the Sahara to the far corners of the world, a queen with a supreme knowledge of the deepest origins of the elixir of life. She may be the only one who can make known to Ramses and Cleopatra the key to their immortality—and the secrets of the miraculous, unknowable, endless expanse of the universe.

Anne Rice - Violin
In ​the grand manner of Interview with the Vampire, Anne Rice's new novel moves across time and the continents, from nineteenth-century Vienna to a St. Charles Greek Revival mansion in present-day New Orleans to dazzling capitals of the modern-day world, telling a story of two charismatic figures bound to each other by a passionate commitment to music as a means of rapture, seduction, and liberation.

Anne Rice - Lasher
A ​Mayfair-boszorkányok életének első fejezetében, a Boszorkányok órájában Anne Rice ismét igéző legendát teremtett. Új regényével ide, a boszorkánydinasztia babonával és misztikával átszőtt világába viszi vissza olvasóit. Újra találkozhatunk az előző kötet főhőseivel, a ragyogóan eszes és gyönyörű Rowan Mayfairrel, a boszorkánybokor királynőjével, és Lasherrel, a démonnal, aki igyekszik sötét bűbájának béklyójában tartani őt. Rowan azonban felismeri, hogy ha meg akarja óvni a gonosz rontásától magát s gyermeküket - egy új emberfajta első sarját -, menekülnie kell a démon elől. Lélegzetelállító hajsza kezdődik, tájakon és korokon keresztül, újra és újra átlépve az emberi és a démoni világ határait. A Lasher az álmok hatalmával vezeti olvasóit a delejes történeten át, ördögi és angyali nagyravágyások és szenvedélyek szürkületi ösvényein.

Anne Rice - The ​Road to Cana
Anne ​Rice's second book in her hugely ambitious and courageous life of Christ begins during his last winter before his baptism in the Jordan and concludes with the miracle at Cana. It is a novel in which we see Jesus—he is called Yeshua bar Joseph—during a winter of no rain, endless dust, and talk of trouble in Judea. Legends of a Virgin birth have long surrounded Yeshua, yet for decades he has lived as one among many who come to the synagogue on the Sabbath. All who know and love him find themselves waiting for some sign of the path he will eventually take. And at last we see him emerge from his baptism to confront his destiny—and the Devil. We see what happens when he takes the water of six great limestone jars, transforms it into cool red wine, is recognized as the anointed one, and urged to call all Israel to take up arms against Rome and follow him as the prophets have foretold. As with Out of Egypt, the opening novel, The Road to Cana is based on the Gospels and on the most respected New Testament scholarship. The book's power derives from the profound feeling its author brings to the writing and the way in which she summons up the presence of Jesus.

Anne Rice - Vérhozsánna
Lestat ​visszatér, bosszúra szomjasan, és ezúttal Rowan Mayfair igézetében. Az egyszerre angyali és démoni vámpír kénytelen ölni, miközben ide-oda bolyong Anne Rice panteonjának félistenei, csupa régi ismerős között. Julien Mayfair kínozza és kísérti a vámpírt; Rowan Mayfair, a boszorkány, aki magához hívja a szellemeket, életveszélyesen vonzónak találja Lestatot; Patsy Blackwood, a country-énekesnő, akit Quinn Blackwood ölt meg, és vetett a mocsárba; Ash Templeton, az 5000 éves táltos, akinek génjeit a Mayfairek viszik tovább. Lestat most azért harcol, hogy megmentse Patsy lelkét a földhöz kötött kísértetek sötét birodalmából, feltárja a táltosok titkát, és eldöntse, mi legyen Rowan Mayfair sorsa. Anne Rice felejthetetlen álomvilágai - Blackwood Farm és a Mayfair-boszorkányok birodalma - csapnak össze a vérszomj és a jóság, a kéj és a megváltás között vergődő Lestat befejező, utolsó történetében.

Anne Rice - Merrick ​(angol)
With ​the splendid Merrick, Rice is firing on all cylinders, and this latest volume in the best-selling Vampire Chronicles has all the elements that we expect from her: richly evocative use of locales; flesh-creeping horror (the squeamish should steer clear); rich, operatic characterisation and (most of all) that strange, overwrought prose style which is hers alone. The Vampire Armand ended with Lestat being revived in modern-day New Orleans. But the central character in this new volume is Lestat's friend Louis de Pointe du Lac (who first appeared in the 18th-century France of Interview with the Vampire ), another one of Rice's tortured vampires. Louis is dealing with the memory of the dead child vampire Claudia, to whom he was devoted. But when the Machiavellian organiser David Talbot joins Louis in appealing to the beautiful Merrick (mixed-race daughter of a New Orleans Mayfair clan) to invoke the ghost of Claudia, Merrick's very individual brand of black magic becomes the one thing that can save Louis' sanity. This tampering results in other malign spirits being released, and soon Rice's narrative is knee-deep in bloody mayhem and voodoo.

Anne Rice - Táltos
A ​Mayfair-boszorkányok életének második fejezetében, a Lasherben Anne Rice ismét igéző legendát teremtett. Új regényével ide, a boszorkánydinasztia babonával és misztikával átszőtt világába viszi vissza olvasóit. Úgy tűnik, az Első utcai Mayfairek ideje lejárt: utolsó sarjuk, Rowan Mayfair, már nem alkalmas arra, hogy megtestesítse a Mayfairek hatalmát. Annál energikusabban pezseg az erő a családfa más ágaiban, ahol Lasher keresztelő igyekezete nélkül, maguktól teremnek ősanyákhoz méltó boszorkányok, köztük is a legerősebb Mona, az új örökösnő. A Talamasca egyik tudósa, Stuart Gordon, tudja: az emberiség előtt egy másik értelmes faj is élt a földön...

Anne Rice - Blood ​Canticle
Lestat ​is back with a vengeance and in thrall to Rowan Mayfair. Both demon and angel, he is drawn to kill but tempted by goodness as he moves among the pantheon of Anne Rice's unforgettable characters: Julien Mayfair, his tormentor; Rowan, witch neurosurgeon, who attracts spirits to herself, casts spells on others and finds herself dangerously drawn to Lestat; Patsy, country and western singer, who was killed by Quinn Blackwood and dumped in a swamp; Ash Templeton, a 5,000-year-old Taltos whose genes live on in the Mayfairs. Now, Lestat fights to save Patsy's ghost from the dark realms of the Earthbound, to uncover the mystery of the Taltos and to decide the fate of Roan Mayfair. Anne Rice's irresistible dreams - the world of Blackwood Farm and the Mayfair Witches - collide as Lestat struggles between lust for blood and the quest for life, between gratification and redemption.

Anne Rice - Blackwood ​farm
Lestat ​visszatér, mint megváltó és démon, és természetesen főszereplő a kapzsiság és a gyűlölet nemzedékeken átnyúló, családi rémdrámájában, amelyben van vérszomj és árulás, megszállottság és anyagyilkosság. Blackwood Farm pompás déli udvarházában, a louisianai sötét mocsári ciprusok között véres titkok és családi kísértetek lappanganak. A ház és a titkok örököse a fiatal, szeles és jóképű Quinn Blackwood, Lestat gyámoltja. Ám Quinnt nemcsak a múlt és a saját vágyai fenyegetik, hanem az ezeknél sokkal veszélyesebb familiáris, a lidérces doppelgänger, amely képes lenne elpusztítani őt és a többieket. Csupán a túlvilági és az evilági hatalmak - Lestat és a Mayfair-család - szövetsége óvhatja meg Quinnt önmagától és a szellemeitől, vagy mentheti meg halálra ítélt szerelmét önnön halandóságától. Anne Rice idegborzoló tehetségének legjavát adja ebben a félrevezetően jámbor című, sokkoló, kegyetlen és fülledten érzéki regényben. Vámpírok és boszorkányok, férfiak, nők és lidércek vergődnek a halál és a pusztulás, a vér és a tűz, a kegyetlenség és a végzet hálójában.

The ​Mayfair witches face an unimaginable new threat: the Taltos - the giant race gifted with preternatural knowledge, who breed in minutes and live for centuries. The race that spawned the monster-innocent Lasher, who gave the witches their power and almost destroyed them. Unknown to the Mayfairs, another Taltos still lives; the legendary Ashla, who has done and suffered so much down the centuries. Now a frantic dance speeds them all from the dawn of history ant the Dark Ages to high-tech New York, from sensuous New Orleans to Stonehenge and the Scottish Highlands, to wards their ultimate fate... 'If you surrender and go with her, you will find that you have surrendered to enchantments, as in in a voluptuous dream,' - The Boston Globe 'Anne Rice offers more than just a story; she creates a myth.' - Washington Post Book World 'Anne Rice seems to be at home everywhere ... She makes us believe everything she sees.' - The New York Times Book Review
