In this installment of The Vampire Chronicles
, Anne Rice summons up dazzling worlds to bring you the story of Armand - eternally young, with the face of a Botticelli angel. Armand first appeared in all his dark glory in the now-classic Interview with the Vampire
, the first of The Vampire Chronicles
, the novel that established its author worldwide as a magnificent storyteller and creator of magical realms.
Now, travel with Armand across the centuries to the Kiev Rus of his boyhood - a ruined city under Mongol dominion - and to ancient Constantinople, where Tartar raiders sell him into slavery. And in a magnificent palazzo in the Venice of the Renaissance you see him emotionally and intellectually in thrall to the great vampire Marius, who masquerades as a mysterious, reclusive painter and who will bestow upon Armand the gift of vampiric blood.
As the novel races to its climax, moving through scenes of luxury and elegance, of ambush, fire, and devil worship to nineteenth-century Paris and today's New Orleans, we see its eternally vulnerable and romantic hero forced to choose between his twilight immortality and the salvation of his immortal soul.
The Vampire Armand is Volume 6 of The Vampire Chronicles. For a full selection of Anne Rice programs available at audible.com and to hear the author answering fan mail, visit the Anne Rice store.
