(From the publisher):
Educated in the Florence of Cosimo de' Medici, trained in knighthood at his father's mountaintop castle, Vittorio inhabits a world of courtly splendor and country pleasures -- a world suddenly threatened when his entire family is confronted by an unholy power.
In the midst of this upheaval, Vittorio is seduced by the beautiful and sinister vampire Ursula -- setting in motion a chilling chain of events that will mark his life for eternity. Against a backdrop of the wonders -- both sacred and profane -- and the beauty and ferocity of Renaissance Italy, Anne Rice creates a passionate and tragic legend of doomed young love and lost innocence.
