WithPandora, 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 Vittorio, a vampire in the Italian Age of Gold. Educated in the Florence of Cosimo de' Medici, trained in knighthood at his father's mountaintop castle, Vittorio inhabits a world of courtly splendor and country pleasures--a world suddenly threatened when his entire family is confronted by an unholy power. In the midst of this upheaval, Vittorio is seduced 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 (and confused) by his love for the mysterious Ursula, he finds himself facing demonic adversaries, war and political intrigue. Against a backdrop of the wonders--both sacred and profane--and the beauty and ferocity of Renaissance Italy, Anne Rice creates a passionate and tragic legend of doomed young love and lost innocence.

Internationally bestselling author, Anne Rice, has written twenty-eight novels - magnificent tales of other worldly beings that explore the realms of good and evil, love and alienation: each a reflection of her own moral journey. Now, in her powerful memoir, she writes about her own life as a Catholic. Beginning with her New Orleans childhood, in a vividly experienced world of storytelling and ritual, Rice's faith was formed. As a teenager, struggling to reconcile her faith with her hunger for knowledge and understanding of the modern world, she turned her back to the religion of her childhood and lost her belief in God. Years later, after the tragic passing of her daughter, she wrote Interview with the Vampire,a lament for her lost faith. Rice describes a turning point in 1998, when, after nearly four decades as an atheist, she returned to the religion of her childhood. Hers is a faith that has survived even her husband's death and the divisive nature of contemporary religious debate. This is her spiritual confession.
