I absolutely love Marius so this book is possibly my favorite next to 'The Vampire Armand' You get his story and all the pain he's had to go through as the keeper of Akasha and just all the things he's lived. Marius definetaly makes history interesting.

Ah, to be sucked into the world of Marius, and to listen to his tale of woe and suffering, of obsession and loss. I enjoyed every moment of his wanderings through the centuries. I felt pain with him every time he remembered his beloved Pandora and his horrible mistake of leaving her. I fell at the feet of Botticelli every time Marius described the beauty of his paintings. I wished that this story had no ending, for I could have listened to Marius talk for centuries about all he knew and saw. One of the greatest Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles.

This is an excellent addition to the Vampire Chronicles. It expands and explains Marius' view of everything you learn about him in the earlier books. It makes it one of the those hard-to-put-down books. You want to keep reading to find out the next little tidbit of Marius' past that you did not know before. As always Anne Rice is an excellent writer and lets her talents speak for themselves.

Made into an immortal by a band of Druids during the time of Caesar Augustus, Marius, once a Roman senator, spent centuries living an opulently idle life. His primary task throughout the years was to guard the unmoving forms of Akasha and Enkil, the queen and king of the vampires, who caused such a ruckus in Rice's earlier novels. Marius has always been one of the author's more fascinating characters. His florid, foppish recollections of Rome and Venice, run-ins with people like Botticelli, battles with hordes of Satan-worshiping vampires and the never-ending search for his true love, Pandora, make for a satisfying read.

This is the story of Marius, the ancient vampire that you read about in The Vampire Lestat. Marius is a wonderful character and makes the book worth the read.
