"RICE WRITES WITH HER USUAL EROTIC AND HISTORICALLY EVOCATIVE FLAIR." – People

Once a proud Senator in Imperial Rome, Marius is kidnapped and forced into that dark realm of blood, where he is made a protector of the Queen and King of the vampires – in whom the core of the supernatural race resides. Through his eyes we see the fall of pagan Rome to the Emperor Constantine, the horrific sack of the Eternal City at the hands of the Visigoths, and the vile aftermath of the Black Death. Ultimately restored by the beauty of the Renaissance, Marius becomes a painter, living dangerously yet happily among mortals, and giving his heart to the great master Botticelli, to the bewitching courtesan Bianca, and to the mysterious young apprentice Armand. But it is in the present day, deep in the jungle, when Marius will meet his fate seeking justice from the oldest vampires in the world...

Blood and Gold is an extremely bad horror and dark fantasy book. The deterioration of The Vampire Chronicles is a good example of what happens when a writer tries to please fans by writing more books when all the exciting and new ideas have run out. I only read this book, because I wanted to read the whole series. Otherwise I wouldn't have read it. If you liked Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat and The Queen of the Damned, you should avoid this book. You'll only be disappointed, if you try to read it.
