The vampire world is in crisis - their kind have been proliferating out of control and, thanks to technologies undreamed of in previous centuries, they can communicate as never before. Roused from their earth-bound slumber, ancient ones are in thrall to the Voice: which commands that they burn fledgling vampires in cities from Paris to Mumbai.

Wolves of Midwinter, Paperback (October 2014)» View all books by Anne Rice
Anne Rice is back, with more werewolves, gothic mansions and epic battles between good and evil. It is the beginning of December and it is cold and grey outside. In the stately flickering hearths of the grand mansion of Nideck Point, oak fires are burning. The Morphenkinder are busy getting ready for the ancient pagan feast of midwinter.
US Kirkus Review » Rice in short form after the lengthy Blackwood Farm (2002), this time featuring characters shuffled together from the Vampire Lestat series and the Mayfair Witches series. Rice allows Lestat to narrate for the first time since 1995's Memnoch the Devil-which, according to Lestat, was the largest-selling entry in the entire series (probably because Tom Cruise's Interview with the Vampire had come out the year before, reinvigorating the series and filling new readers in on the first novel). It's not fair to expect Rice to write as impressively as she did 28 years ago (although there are long, beautiful, well-researched passages in her historicals), but the fact remains that Louis, the brooding, reluctant vampire of Interview, is Rice's best narrator, far superior to Lestat, who runs off at the mouth and whose prose has none of the sweet grip of Louis's. Canticle picks up where Blackwood left off, with beautiful nymphet Mona near death in young Quinn Blackwood's arms. Lestat is on hand, still reeling from seeing Satan and God in person in Memnoch, and now set on being a saint. Despite his unflagging vanity, Lestat has also absorbed the main quality of Louis: revulsion toward the Curse. Though having met God and now seeking redemption, Lestat goes on sucking blood-but only of bad guys! He's helping God sweep mankind free of misbegotten hellspawn. For Quinn, Lestat gives Mona the Dark Trick, and then the three of them go to New Orleans to induct Mona into her first thirst-quenching. Meanwhile, Lestat has fallen headlong for Rowan Mayfair, the witch and neurosurgeon who finds Lestat attractive-attractions forced on both of them by Rice. And where is Morrigan, Mona's monstrous full-grown Woman-Child, fathered by Rowan's manly husband Michael? Though one wishes to give the recently widowed author a free ride, Blood Canticle is as gaily slipshod, gushy, and first-draftish as Merrick. (Kirkus Reviews)
