After reading “The Vampire Chronicles”, it was difficult to consider this story as part of a new and distinct series of vampire tales. I immediately started drawing the parallels. For instance, Vittorio shares the love of art with Marius, he is young like Armand, and the Red Guild is the counterpart to the satanic Parisian coven. And certainly, if only they had met, Vittorio’s knowledge and experience with spirits would have been helpful to Lestat in “Memoch the Devil”. So, even though it borrowed from previous ones, I still enjoyed this novel.

Even though this is technically part of Rice's New Tales of the Vampires, this book could stand alone. There aren't heavy references to her other works. It was also a fairly fast read, it doesn't have the tedious details her works normally have.
