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 appetites but, even more dangerously, to a companion spirit, a 'goblin' succubus who could destroy him and others. Only the unearthly 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.Read Less

Lavish in its setting and desriptions, Blackwood Farm took me to a place that I didn't want to leave. The characters were well drawn, the setting was beautifully created, and Rice's talent for writing shone with all its splendor throughout the entire book. This is easily one of my all-time favorites, of Anne Rice or any other writer. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to read a well-written and exciting novel.
