Publisher's Summary

Mesmerising, darkly erotic, terrifying, The Vampire Armand is an historic instalment to Anne Rice's internationally best-selling Vampire Chronicles.
Magnificent and electrifying, The Vampire Armand tells the tale of the mesmerising leader of the vampire coven the Theatre des Vampires in Paris.
This angel-faced killer was snatched from the steppes of Russia as a child and sold as a slave in Renaissance Venice. From there Armand's story spans several hundred years, culminating in a visit to New Orleans at the end of the 20th century.
Here his victims await either death or immortality. But once there his own existence comes into question when he must choose between salvation and his immortal soul.

Not the best so far

After Simon Vance narrated the previous books it was difficult to adjust to Jonathan Marosz. The story was fair but no where near as much action or intrigue as previous books.

Great story, terrible narrator

Would you try another book written by Anne Rice or narrated by Jonathan Marosz?

The Vampire Armand is probably one of my favourite of Anne Rice's Vampire chronicles. having listened to Simon Vance's excellent narration of others in the series, I was utterly disappointed by the audio version of this volume. Terrible!


What other book might you compare The Vampire Armand to, and why?

The story itself is a great one, and one of the best in the series IMO. Shame about the narrator.


Would you be willing to try another one of Jonathan Marosz’s performances?

No - will be avoiding this narrator in future


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. The narration was toneless, monotonous and in totally the wrong accent.(Armand is meant to be Ukranian, not downtown New York!) Words were frequently mispronounced (Djeballah instead of Djellabah), and attempts at contrasting accents (for example, the character of David who is British, and Benji, an Arab) were woeful. The experience was ruined by the narrator.


Any additional comments?

Please re-record this with a decent narrator that fits with the other books in the series!
