Blood Canticle (Vampire Chronicles) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the "New York Times" bestselling tenth novel of her hauntingly seductive Vampire Chronicles, Rice picks up where "Blackwood Farm" left off, with the story of Lestat's quest for redemption, goodness, and the love of Rowan Mayfair.

Review:

"Rice in short form after the lengthy Blackwood Farm....Blood Canticle is as gaily slipshod, gushy, and first-draftish as Merrick." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Rice's strengths as a writer [include] her knack for colourful characters, her loving attention to historical detail, her imaginative explorations of myth and mysticism." The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

Review:

"Writing as if her blood-inked quill were afire, Rice seems truly possessed by her Brat Prince of darkness as she races through the story....[E]ither a befitting end or a new beginning for the Queen of the Vampires." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Though a lot of elements from Rice's previous novels play into this one, new readers won't be lost and old ones will enjoy how the different threads come together." Kristine Huntley, Booklist

Review:

"In [Blackwood Farm], Quinn Blackwood's unique voice narrated; unfortunately, in this sequel it is a boorish Lestat who tells the tale....This is not one of Rice's better efforts, but her loyal fans will no doubt request copies." Library Journal
