Anne Rice

In her mesmerizing new novel, the author of The Vampire Chronicles and the saga of the Mayfair Witches demonstrates once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling and the creation of myth and magic. Here, in a magnificent tale of sorcery and the occult, she makes real for us a hitherto unexplored world of witchcraft.

At the center is the beautiful, unconquerable witch Merrick. She is a descendant of the gens de couleur libres, a society of New Orleans octoroons and quadroons steeped in the lore and ceremony of voodoo, who reigned in the shadowy world where African and French - the dark and the white - intermingled. Her ancestors are the great Mayfair Witches, of whom she knows nothing - and from whom she inherits the power and the magical knowledge of a Circe.

Into this exotic realm comes David Talbot - hero, storyteller, adventurer, almost-mortal vampire, visitor from another dark realm. It is he who recounts Merrick's haunting tale - a tale that takes us from the New Orleans of past and present to the jungles of Guatemala, from the Maya ruins of a century ago to ancient civilizations not yet explored.

Anne Rice's richly told novel weaves an irresistible story of two worlds: the witches' world and vampires' world, where magical powers and otherworldly fascinations are locked together in a dance of seduction, death, and rebirth.

`SPELLBINDING ... LUXURIOUSLY LUSCIOUS ... There is the promise of more chills to come.`
~ USA Today

`[Merrick's] greatest strength is Rice's skill at constructing a believably eerie New Orleans overrun by the charismatic undead and those who wish to join them. ... Its closing pages prime the stage for the continuing adventures of the beguiling Merrick and her new fanged pals. They will all be back, of course, and Merrick leaves you looking forward to their return.`
~ The Boston Globe

`RICE AT HER CHILLING BEST.`
~ The Seattle Times

`RICE'S PACE HAS RARELY BEEN BETTER. ... For those already enthralled by Ms. Rice's witches and vampires, Merrick will strengthen the spell. And for those who haven't been ... well, sucked in yet, Merrick proves a worthy initiation.`
~ The Dallas Morning News

MERRICK is the seventh volume in the Vampire Chronicles and is also linked to author Rice's Mayfair Witches series. This volume follows the life of Merrick Mayfair, an orphan raised by a scholar with connections to Lestat. As she grows, Merrick develops and hones a power over life and death, but, unable to render herself immortal, falls in with Lestat who is reluctant to turn her into a vampire for fear of repeating the debacle with the 7-year-old Claudia (from INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE).
