4 stars First of all, I have to say that this is my very first Anne Rice experience. I have only contacted with her vision of vampires through the "Interview with the Vampire" film, which is why I knew who Lestat was (he is mentioned throughout "Pandora"), but had never heard of Marius and Akasha....
I quite enjoyed reading this book. One thing I should note though is that this book really should be read before The Vampire Armand for reasons of continuity.
This is in no way the best book in the series, but is an interesting look at a side character's story. Pandora was never explained in the "core" of the series, but here we look at her human life, how she was turned, and what happened afterwards. Not the best of Anne Rice but still good.
I was kind of weary of reading this after I read some of the reviews...and after I read Violin..which I still have not finished...but I must say I enjoyed this book better.I found Pandora to be very interesting..and not at all what I thought her to be..she wasn't the usual angst filled....woe is me ...
