      I have always been a fan of her Vampire Chronicles and must say that once more she didn’t disappoint me. The book follows the life of one of the children of the millennia, the vampire Marius, born 400BC in Rome.

      What I like about Anne Rice’s books is the way she manages to merge in the most natural, feasible and fascinating way my two favorite literary genres, the fantasy and the historical.

      Fantasy makes you escape to a plane where everything is possible, where


      your imagination can run free and you can experience something completely different and new from what you are stuck with every day.

        One thing that might be enjoyable for some, but is not essential, would be to keep internet access nearby during certain parts to look up places, buildings and artworks as they are mentioned or described, especially those that play a role in the story, it is quite fascinating to see with your own eyes what the protagonists are looking at in the book.
