A nice copy of the author's third novel. ".In this mesmerizing novel, the acclaimed author of 'Interview With the Vampire' makes real for us the exquisite and otherworldly society of the eighteenth-century castrati, the delicate and alluring male sopranos whose graceful bodies and glorious voices brought them the adulation of the royal courts and grand opera houses of Europe, men who lived as idols, concealing their pain as they were adored as angels, yet shunned as half-men. As we are drawn into their dark and luminous story, as the crowds of Venetians, Neopolitans, and Romans, noblemen and peasants, musicians, prelates, princes, saints, and intriguers swirl around them, Anne Rice brings us into the sweep of eighteenth-century Italian life, into the decadence beneath the shimmering surface of Venice, the wild frivolity of Naples, and the magnetic terror of its shadow, Vesuvius. It is a novel that only Anne Rice could have written, taking us into a heartbreaking and enchanting moment in history, a time of great ambition and great suffering -- a tale that challenges our deepest images of the masculine and the feminine."

"In 1976, a uniquely seductive world of vampires was unveiled in the now-classic 'Interview with the Vampire' . . . in 1985, a wild and voluptous voice spoke to us, telling the story of 'The Vampire Lestat.' In 'The Queen of the Damned,' Anne Rice continues her extraordinary 'Vampire Chronicles' in a feat of mesmeric storytelling, a chillingly hypnotic entertainment in which the oldest and most powerful forces of the night are unleashed on an unsuspecting world..."
