Lestat is back, saviour and demon, presiding over a gothic story of family greed and hatred through generations, a terrifying drama of blood lust and betrayal, possession and matricide. Blackwood Farm with its grand Southern mansion, set among dark cypress swamps in Louisiana, harbours blood-stained secrets and family ghosts. Heir to them all is Quinn Blackwood, young, rash and beautiful, himself a tyro bloodhunter whom Lestat takes under his wing. But Quinn is in thrall not only to the past and his own appetities but, even more dangerously, to a companion spirit, a 'goblin' succubus who could destroy him and others. Only the unearthy power of Lestat combined with the earthly powers of the ubiquitous Mayfair clan could hope to save Quinn from himself and his ghosts, or to rescue the doomed girl whom Quinn loves from her own mortality. Shocking, savage and richly erotic, this novel with its deceptively gentle title brings us Anne Rice at her most powerfully disturbing. Here are vampires and witches, men and women, demons and doppelganger, caught up in a maelstrom of death and destruction, blood and fire, cruelty and fate.

4.0 Review of Blackwood Farm by Anne Rice
Blackwood Farm by Anne Rice is the 9th book in her Vampire Chronicles series. This book has characters from the Mayfair Witches trilogy so it might be helpful to read those books first(plus Merrick), but it isn't strictly necessary. In the style of many of her books most of the story is the main cha...

This was the typical Anne Rice style that I love, with it's wonderful details and real characters. The only issue I had was with Tarquin (Quinn) himself, man was he stupid at times and it seemed to be kind of whiny. Overall it was pretty good though, but don't read it if you're expecting a lot of Le...

This was the last straw in my decade long relationship with Anne Rice. We had some good times but mutually decided to end our relationship. I loved her three witch books but the vampire stuff had been going downhill since Body Thief.I hate this book. After years of okay to disappointing novels, t...

5.0 Blackwood Farm
Having read this book back in 2003, I just gave it a quick reread prior to starting on Blood Canticle in order to refresh my memory on the characters and their situations. I had forgotten how much I really liked this book. It was one of the best-written and most engaging tales Ms. Rice has written...
