"Voglio essere santo. Voglio salvare anime a milioni. Voglio fare del bene ovunque ." A pronunciare queste parole non è un uomo comune. Non è nemmeno un uomo. È una creatura della notte: il vampiro Lestat. Cristallizzato in un'eterna giovinezza, Lestat è bello come il sole che lo respinge, ma l'oscurità che ha dentro lo tormenta da secoli. La sua brama di redenzione, bontà e amore contrasta con la sua natura di viaggiatore della notte e il suo unico rifugio è la residenza di Blackwood Farm. E proprio qui giunge la bellissima Mona Mayfair, il grande amore del padrone di casa, Quinn, compagno di Lestat. La ragazza è fuggita dall'ospedale dove era rinchiusa da più di un anno, ed è in fin di vita. Una sola cosa può salvarla, il Battesimo del Sangue. Lestat deve così abbandonare i suoi impossibili sogni di purezza e redenzione per trasformarla in un vampiro. Sulle tracce della fuggitiva giunge a Blackwood anche Rowan Mayfair, per la quale Lestat prova una forte attrazione. Ma l'amore a lui non è concesso?

Honestly, never in a million years had I ever imagined giving any of these books a 1 out of 5. But Blood Canticle is like Anne Rice woke up one day, smelled the roses, opened the balcony doors to be greeted by the shouts of her adoring fans, and then proceeded to perch on the railing and shit on all Leggi tutto
I swear, it isn't intentional. My recent reading of the Beauty trilogy coincidentally led up to picking up Blood Canticle on the bargain rack. I'm a long-time fan of The Vampire Chronicles as well as her tales of the Mayfair Witches, and my lust for this book, the one in which the two series merge,
Ya por fin los Mayfair se meten de lleno con los personajes de las crónicas y es increíble. A pesar de que Mona no es muy de mi agrado la historia fue muy entretenida, tal vez divagó en cosas un poco extrañas y que no eran muy necesarias, pero el general está bueno. Si hay un tomo más de esta saga yo Leggi tutto
As much of a die hard Anne Rice fan as I claim to be, I have yet to finish this book. Supposedly it's the last she'll ever write in her vampire series. I got about halfway through and wanted to throw the book across the room. It's like a different person is writing.. and it seems like Anne just does Leggi tutto
Either I had a horribly low bar for what good writing is as a teen, or the author's had a major writing crisis since I was a teen. Too scared to pick up one of her (even) older books to find out which one it is. ^^' [prtf]
After finally finishing my journey with Anne Rice and her vampires, something I started at age 14, I come to the end pretty dissapointed with the turn Anne Rice has taken with her writing. Theres not much I can say about this book that others havent already said, however I just have to vent about on Leggi tutto
I was a big fan of Ms. Rice's books for a long time. Blackwood Farm was the first vampire (or Mayfair witch) novel that I didn't love. Actually, she had been declining for a couple of books before that, but it was in Blackwood that I noticed the sharp drop in quality, which only drops even further w Leggi tutto
Now Mona is a vampire and not facing her inevitable death, she is able to ask hard questions – like where her daughter is and what has become of the Taltos The big dark secret of the Mayfair family is finally open and ready to be resolved. I have a problem. When I reviewed Blackwood Farm I gave it 0.5 Leggi tutto
Anne Rice has said this is the last of the Vampire Chronicles, I'm not sure if this is the last of the Mayfair Witches, but this review is written under the belief that Blood Canticle is the end of both. Anne Rice is my favorite author. The Witching Hour is my favorite book. As I reached the end of
"There is nothing to writing," as Hemingway once said. "All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." Maybe that's the reason I felt compelled to give BLOOD CANTICLE three stars. It's difficult to transport a reader into a world that cannot be researched, one created in entirety from the author Leggi tutto
