Summary
With Pandora, Anne Rice began a magnificent new series of Vampire novels. Now, in the second of her New Tales of the Vampires, she tells the mesmerizing story of a Vampire in the Italian Age of Gold. Vittorio, educated in the Florence of Cosimo de' Medici, trained in knighthood at his father's mountaintop castle, inhabits a world of courtly splendor & country splendor & country pleasures-a world suddenly shattered when his entire family is destroyed in a bizarre & horrible act of violence committed by an unholy power. But Vittorio himself is spared by the Vampire Ursula, the most beautiful of his supernatural enemies. As he sets out in pursuit of vengeance, entering the nightmarish court of the Ruby Grail, increasingly more enchanted (& confused) by his love for the mysterious Ursula, he finds himself confronted by demonic adversaries, by war & political intrigue.
