A beautiful first Trade edition book (only a limited signed edition by B. E. Trice was issued prior to this) in Very Fine condition, SIGNED on the first free front end page by author and vampire legend Anne Rice.
The first in a new series of novels linked together by the fledgling vampire David Talbot, who has set out to become a chronicler of his fellow Undead.

David persuades her to tell the story of her life.
