Narrated by the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt , Blood Canticle finds young Mayfair witch and heiress Mona slowly dying, afflicted with a mysterious disease brought on by the birth of her daughter Morrigan.

Over time, Mona and her guardian, Rowan Mayfair , reveal more and more about the powerful genetic plague that has haunted the Mayfairs for generations: their connection to the Taltos , an advanced species of human to which both women have given birth.

Mona and the young vampire Tarquin "Quinn" Blackwood are in love. Lestat turns a dying Mona into a vampire so that the lovers can be together forever. While trying to prevent Mona's family from discovering her transformation, Lestat falls in love with the married Rowan, and she secretly pines for him as well. As Mona adjusts to her new power, Lestat enlists the ancient vampire Maharet to help find Mona's Taltos child.

Lestat, Quinn and Mona arrive at the remote island colony of the Taltos, but instead of finding a secluded utopia, they discover that years of criminal intrigue and civil war have taken their toll.

The remaining Taltos join the Mayfair clan at the Mayfair Medical Center where they intend to safely learn and grow as a family. Mona and Quinn are instructed in the proper ways of vampirism by Maharet and her twin Mekare. Rowan seeks out Lestat, half in love with him but torn by her love for her husband Michael. Exhausted by her life, she requests that he make her a vampire.

It's a moral U-turn that drives the Blood Hunter toward the ultimate literary sin: tedium. After Blood Canticle received many "virulently negative reviews" from readers on Amazon.

Compelled to speak out because many of the postings included personal attacks on her writing ability, health and state of mind since her husband's death, Rice added that she had received many emails of support from fellow writers who had also felt "savaged and trashed" by Amazon.

BLOOD CANTICLE

For her 25th fan-pleasing outing, Rice reunites some of her most popular creations and, for the first time since Memnoch the Devil , lets the Vampire Lestat "write" the book. In his effort to attain sainthood, Lestat must deal with a lot of metaphysical angst. The opulent Blackwood estate and its spooky swamps, as well as New Orleans and a Caribbean isle, provide the settings for many elegant costume changes as the exquisite vampiric triumvirate gleefully suck several deserving victims dry and lay waste to dozens of a drug lord's minions. The vampirisation of young Mona, a true child of our times, gives Rice a dynamic new vampire personality with whom to play. Writing as if her blood-inked quill were afire, Rice seems truly possessed by her Brat Prince of darkness as she races through the story.
