Blood and Gold (Vampire Chronicles)
"Hardcover: 460 pages ; Dimensions (in inches): 1.59 x 9.53 x 6.74 Publisher: Knopf; ISBN: 0679454497; (October 16, 2001) Time heals all wounds, unless, of course, you're a vampire. Cuts may heal, burns vanish, limbs reattach, but for the ""blood god,"" the wounds of the heart sometimes stay open and raw for centuries. So it is for Marius, Anne Rice's oft-mentioned and beloved scholar. We've heard parts of his tale in past volumes of the Vampire Chronicles, but never so completely and never from his own lips. In Blood and Gold, Rice mostly (but not entirely) avoids the danger of treading worn ground as she fills out the life and character of Marius the Lonely, the Disenchanted, the Heartsick--a 2,000-year-old vampire ""with all the conviction of a mortal man.""
