Anne Rice, creator of the Vampire Lestat, the Mayfair witches and the amazing worlds they inhabit, now gives us the first in a new series of novels linked together by the fledgling vampire David Talbot, who has set out to become a chronicler of his fellow Undead. The novel opens in present-day Paris in a crowded cafe, where David meets Pandora. She is 2,000 years old, a Child of the Millennia, the first vampire ever made by the great Marius. David persuades her to tell the story of her life. Pandora begins, reluctantly at first and then with increasing passion, to recount her mesmerizing tale, which takes us through the ages, from Imperial Rome to 18th-century France to 20th-century Paris and New Orleans.

Excellent read, she just doesn't seem to write a bad book when it comes to vampires. The rich details and settings make you wish you were there. A great read.

A compelling story about love, wrapped in Rice's trademark turgid prose. The vampire Pandora details her life, from wealthy Roman woman to Paris sophisticate, and in the process rediscovers her love for Marius, a vampire who has loved her for two thousand years.
The research Rice put into her historical settings is sometimes obvious, but always interesting. The only fully formed character is the narrator. There is a nice contrast between Pandora's thoughtful hedonism and Marius' almost stereotypically brooding vampire.
It's been years since I read Rice's vampire chronicles(and totally missed the last three or four books). I sometimes felt that the narrator was talking about events and characters I should know, but didn't.

There were a few places I got lost in this one but it was easy to backtrack and get on course again..Love Ann Rice...
