There are very few books out there that can force me to stay up at ungodly hours just to be able to finish it up... this was one of them. Blackwood Farm is full of what you might expect from Rice: erotica, history and attention to details. A great read!

I really enjoyed this book.

I started reading Rice's vampire books when I was about 14 years old and just adored them. Somewhere in the series, fifth book I think, I lost interest and stopped reading them.

After reading this one I will keep up with this series again.

Another of Rice's Vampire books, this one is very enjoyable. Lestat is back as a mentor of sorts to a young man named Quinn Blackwood. I was unexpectedly pleased with this book. It was a return to her style of Gothic Louisiana Swamp Revival Drama.

Although this book is included in the Vampire Chronicles it is a bit different than any of her others in this series. Unlike the others this book doesn't 100% focus on vampires, there are witches and ghosts included, which in my opinion made the book a lot more interesting. There is truly no end to Anne Rice's imagination. This book focuses on two different families (the Mayfair witches included)tells a little bit of their seedy past and follows a new vampire. I thought it was a very good read and because of this book I went on to read the Mayfair Witches series.

Having read almost the full series of vampire chronicles from author Rice, I have a special fondness for Blackwood Farm. Yes, Lestat shows up in this one, too, and is even likeable in it, but it is the main character, Quinn, who is the draw here. Although a vampire, he's one with a conscience (but not the eternally gloomy, torn conscience of Louis, Lestat's companion of most of the chronicles). Atmospheric, brings in characters from the rest of the series in fresh ways, you feel as if you've visited Blackwood Farm and lived to tell about it.

Anne Rice is at her best when she writes about the vampires. Quinn Blackwood is an interesting character and is most enjoyable when he sets out to find the legendary Lestat to help get rid of a spector named Goblin you will really enjoy this book.

I've never been a big fan of the Vampire Chronicles. I liked the Mayfair Witches series better. However, this book is a mix between her Vampire Chronicles and her Mayfair Witches books. The two series comes together in this hauntingly tragic tale about a man who gets 'turned' against his will and has to give up everything and everyone he loves while he gets his thirst for blood under control...and is left with an entity he at first has mixed feelings about, but then it quickly becomes a danger to those he loves. That's where the Mayfair Witches part comes in. This story is well written and is definitely an unforgettable one.
