By Anne Rice
With Pandora, Anne Rice started an impressive new sequence of vampire novels. Now, within the moment of her New stories of the Vampires, she tells the enthralling tale of Vittorio, a vampire within the Italian Age of Gold.
Educated within the Florence of Cosimo de' Medici, expert in knighthood at his father's mountaintop citadel, Vittorio inhabits a global of courtly attractiveness and kingdom pleasures—a global all at once threatened while his whole family members is faced via an unholy power.
In the midst of this upheaval, Vittorio is seduced via the vampire Ursula, the main attractive of his supernatural enemies. As he units out in pursuit of vengeance, coming into the nightmarish courtroom of the Ruby Grail, a growing number of enchanted (and stressed) by means of his love for the mysterious Ursula, he unearths himself dealing with demonic adversaries, conflict and political intrigue.
Against a backdrop of the wonders—both sacred and profane—and the wonder and ferocity of Renaissance Italy, Anne Rice creates a passionate and tragic legend of doomed younger love and misplaced innocence.
