"Sensuous . . . Its intensity never flags."
--Los Angeles Times
"MASTERFUL . . . A STORY ILLUMINATED WITH THE METAPHOR OF GOLD, DRENCHED IN HELLISH DARKNESS AND DRIPPING WITH BLOOD."
"[A] LUSHLY DESCRIBED STORY OF HOW VITTORIO DI RINIARI BECAME A VAMPIRE . . . In the year 1450, he witnesses the massacre of his entire family by a band of demons. Fleeing from the primal scene, he follows the fiends in search of vengeance, and instead is overcome by the devastatingly beautiful 'strega, ' the bare-shouldered Ursula. His desire for revenge--and his desire for Ursula--propels him in a dizzy descent to religion's darkest side."
"ANOTHER ENCHANTING PRETERNATURAL TALE . . . SUPERBLY WRITTEN AND ENGAGING."
"VITTORIO is set against a magnificent backdrop of history and lore. An opulent feast for the imagination, the lust and passion of the early fourteenth century come to life in Rice's vivid prose."
--Rocky Mountain News
"A READER'S DELIGHT."
--Philadelphia Inquirer --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

I, and most other readers would agree, that this is by no means Rice's best work, yet, a good story nonetheless. A worthwhile read for any that are interested in vampires, even if no other stories from the chronicles have been read as no prior knowledge is required to fully understand and appreciaite the story. A Good Read, but by no means the best!
Basically a great stand-alone novel by Rice, with one of the best good vs evil themes she has written.
Vittorio battles against a castle full of vampires. A shame that not much of Vittorio's 500-year existence as a vampire is chronicled, but Anne Rice seems to like missing out huge chunks of her vampires' lives in her books (Pandora and Marius books spring to mind). Well recommended though.
