I've been reading Anne Rice for 12 years, and am a HUGE fan. I love all of her work.....That being said~ I am sorely dissapointed this is the last in the series. Of course because I adore them, but also because this just isn't worthy of being the very last. It is a good book, don't get me wrong, but not quite up to par with the others in the series. I also loved Mona Mayfair in the Mayfair series, and even still in 'Blackwood farm' (Now THAT should've been the last!!!!) but in this book, she drives me NUTS! So NOT like the Mona I 'knew' in the past,lol. Anyways, if you're a fan this is a must read, but to anyone looking to start reading Anne Rice.....DO NOT MAKE THIS THE FIRST BOOK YOU READ IN THE SERIES! lol. You won't like it as much unless you're already in love with Anne and her wonderful characters =)

Fiery, fierce, and erotic, Blood Canticle marks the triumphant culmination of Anne Rices bestselling Vampire Chronicles, as Lestat tells his astounding tale of the pleasures and tortures that lie between deaths shadow and immortality. . . .

Surrounded by its brooding swampscape, Blackwood Farm is alive with the comings and goings of the bewitched and the bewitching. Among them is the ageless vampire Lestat, vainglorious enough to believe that he can become a saint, weak enough to fall impossibly in love.

Gripped by his unspeakable desire for the mortal Rowan Mayfair and taking the not so innocent, new-to-the-blood Mona Mayfair under his wing, Lestat braves the wrath of paterfamilias Julien Mayfair and ventures to a private island off the coast of Haiti. There, Saint Lestat will get his chance to slay his dragon. For Mona and the Mayfairs share an explosive, secret blood bond to another deathless species: a five-thousand-year-old race of Taltos, strangers held in the throes of evil itself.

This is a typical Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles book, written from Lestat's point of view, and is a continuation of Blackwood Farm. Lestat chronicles events surrounding his new charge, Quinn Blackwood, and Quinn's love Mona, who they bring over, and their adventures into the Mayfair secrets (known from the Taltos), excellent read, can't wait to read another!

I haven't read Anne Rice since high school so when I saw this at a book sale, I picked it up. Reading this, I was wondering why I liked her so much back then. Although she has creative ideas, I felt like the writing just wasn't very sophisticated, for lack of a better description. I feel like she tries too hard to be hip and cool with the language and it just doesn't work. Lestat is quite conceited, what every great vampire should be, I guess, and she does this wonderfully. I also liked that the Mayfair witches and Taltos come together with the Vampires. Reading this, I was wondering if it was one of the last books, and it turns out it is the last book in the Vampire Chronicles. Knowing this now, the ending was quite a let down. I guess I was expecting more.

This is a softer side of the vampire Lestat - narrated by the one and only. I enjoyed this story very much. I think Lestats changes to good were captivating. For the audio version, the reader Stephen Spinella was fabulous!!

OK, you gotta love Julian and Mona, what a interesting and exciting duo they make. You can't help but wonder how this is all going to end. A great read, how Anne Rice kept the great writing for all these books is amazing.

As always, Anne Rice leaves you wanting more. It's so easy to get caught up. Lestat was more human acting in this book than any of the past chronicles.

You know, I'm getting kind of tired of Lestat's "life" but I just can't stop reading these books. Not a bad story but certainly does not captivate the way the earlier books did.
