Horror • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

The latest installment of the Vampire Chronicles continues where the last one left off. At Blackwood Farm the once evil vampire Lestat now effuses endless soliloquies on sainthood, delivered in a self-obsessed, simpering tone that makes his professed holiness all the more suspect. David Pittu projects both the self-absorption and detached narrative powers of Lestat in an effete tone that leaves no doubt as to the vampire's sincerity, or lack thereof. Pittu's portrayal of other male and female characters flows smoothly from one to the other and adds spice as called for by the text. His polished performance leaves no room for doubt as to who speaks, or what Lestat thinks of that speech. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
