From the Publisher:
Anne Rice continues her astonishing Vampire Chronicles in a new novel that begins where Blackwood Farm left off — and tells the story of Lestat’s quest for redemption, goodness, and the love of Rowan Mayfair.

Welcome back to Blackwood Farm. Here are all of the brilliantly conceived characters that make up the two worlds of vampires and witches: Mona Mayfair, who’s come to the farm to die and is brought into the realm of the undead; her uncle, Julian Mayfair, guardian of the family, determined to forever torment Lestat for what he has done to Mona; Rowan Mayfair, brilliant neurosurgeon and witch, who finds herself dangerously drawn to the all-powerful Lestat; her husband, Michael Curry, hero of the Mayfair Chronicles, who seeks Lestat’s help with the temporary madness of his wife; Ash Templeton, a 5,000-year-old Taltos who has taken Mona’s child; and Patsy, the country-western singer, who returns to avenge her death at the hands of her son, Quinn Blackwood. Delightfully, at the book’s centre is the Vampire Lestat, once the epitome of evil, now pursuing the transformation set in motion with Memnoch the Devil. He struggles with his vampirism and yearns for goodness, purity and love, as he saves Patsy’s ghost from the dark realm of the Earthbound, uncovers the mystery of the Taltos and unselfishly decides the fate of his beloved Rowan Mayfair.

A story of love and loyalty, of the search for passion and promise, Blood Canticle is Anne Rice at her finest.
Annotation:
In this installment of the Vampire Chronicles, Quinn helps Mona adjust to her newfound vampirism and Rowan (from THE MAYFAIR WITCHES) develops an attraction to the suave Lestat, who is himself at a crossroads between the evil nature of his "gift" and a desire to do good following a meeting with God,
Author Bio
Anne Rice
Born Howard Allen O'Brian, Anne Rice legally changed her name at the age of 6. When she was 16, two years after her mother died in 1955, the family moved to Texas, where she met her future husband, Stan Rice, and graduated from high school. After they married in 1961 and moved to California, Rice received a B.A. from San Francisco State in 1964, had a child named Michelle in 1966, spent two years at the University of California at Berkeley, and then received an M.A., also from San Francisco State, in 1971. Their daughter Michelle then died of leukemia before her sixth birthday. After a period of alcoholism directly related to this loss, Rice wrote INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE over a few weeks in 1973. Eventually published in 1976 to somewhat lukewarm reviews, INTERVIEW..., according to Roz Kaveney in THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FANTASY, "is responsible, if not for creating, at least popularizing and in many respects crystallizing the mythology of the revisionist-fantasy version of the vampire." Rice wrote two more novels, THE FEAST OF ALL SAINTS and CRY TO HEAVEN, before embarking on a series of novels written under pseudonyms, ranging from soft- to relatively hardcore pornography. She wrote EXIT TO EDEN as Anne Rampling and the Sleeping Beauty trilogy as A. N. Roquelaure. In 1986 she wrote a sequel to INTERVIEW, called THE VAMPIRE LESTAT, in which the title character disputes certain events depicted in its predecessor. With this book, Rice officially became a best-selling author. In 1986, Rice and her family moved to New Orleans, a prominent setting in much of her writing. Since then, she has become simultaneously more and less of a public figure. While the immense popularity of her books has forced her to cease listing her telephone number in the phone book, which she did well into the late '80s, Rice has been active in New Orleans, purchasing a lot of property around the area for restoration. Sometimes to the consternation of other residents, she has taken out full-page ads in the local newspaper to express her opinions on various matters, and she regularly responds to questions delivered to her via the Internet at her official Web site. With a staggeringly huge worldwide fan base, Rice is likely to remain at the top of the bestseller lists regardless of which of her several series titles she is writing.
