A bit different from the usual Anne Rice fare,
This review is from: Vittorio, The Vampire (New Tales of the Vampires) (Paperback)
I've read all of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles in sequence and was dreading this, as I'd heard it concerned totally new characters - and it does, which is a good thing. The title is misleading - Vittorio narrates as a vampire, but 85% of the book is spent as a human. This is no bad thing - it makes a refreshing change of perspective as
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.
