(From the publisher):
Here are all the brilliantly conceived principal characters that make up Anne Rice's world of vampires and witches: Mona Mayfair, who's come to Blackwood Farm to die and is, instead, brought into the realm of the undead...Rowan Mayfair, brilliant neurosurgeon and witch, who finds herself dangerously drawn to Lestat...her husband Michael Curry, hero of the Mayfair Chronicles, who seeks Lestat's help with the temporary madness of his wife...Patsy, country-western singer, who returns to avenge her death at the hands of her son, Quinn Blackwood.
And here is the spirit of Julien Mayfair, guardian of the family, determined to torment Lestat eternally for what he has done to Mona...the riddle of the five-thousand-year-old Taltos, involving Mona's child...and, at the book's centre, the Vampire Lestat, once the epitome of evil and now—following the transformation set in motion with Memnoch the Devil—struggling with his vampirism and yearning for goodness, purity and love as he tends with ghosts, legends, secrets and the mystery of the Taltos, and as he wrestles with the fate of his beloved Rowan Mayfair.
