Blood Canticle by Anne Rice

In Blood Canticle, Anne Rice's 16th book in the Vampire Chroncles series, Lestat is back and he wants to be a saint. He will only suck the blood from evil people, and wants to do good in the world. His buddy, Quinn Blackwood, asks Lestat to bestow eternal life on his lover, Mona Mayfair, who has been slowly dying since giving birth to her daugher, Morrigan. The three of them go in search of a Taltos colony in the Caribbean while Rowan Mayfair searches for Morrigan. Blood Canticle completes the coupling of the vampires with the Mayfair witches and brings about the meeting between Rowan and Lestat. It's a typical Anne Rice story, offering plenty of thrills, suspense, vampires, witches, ghosts, mysteries, and the dread of evil lurking around every corner. This novel has received positive reviews with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch saying, "Lestat is a magnificent creature, and his voice stands as Rice's most enduring achievement." able to find. It's a book that Salon says, "This is breathtakingly close to a flawless book, but in a very modest way."
