Educated in the Florence of Cosimo de'Medici, trained in knighthood at his father's mountaintop castle, Vittorio inhabits a world of courtly splendor and country pleasures - a world suddenly threatened when his entire family is confronted by an unholy power. In the midst of this upheaval, Vittorio is seduced by the vampire Ursula, the most beautiful of his supernatural enemies. As he sets out in pursuit of vengeance, entering the nightmarish Court of the Ruby Grail, increasingly more enchanted (and confused) by his love for the mysterious Ursula, he finds himself facing demonic adversaries, war, and political intrigue.
Against a backdrop of the wonders - both sacred and profane - and the beauty and ferocity of Renaissance Italy, Anne Rice creates a passionate and tragic legend of doomed young love and lost innocence.
Vittorio is Volume 2 of The New Tales of the Vampires.

Don't buy abridged...

I'm sure the full book is right on, but I hated listening to this. The entire time my mind wondered at what was missing. Were the characters better developed, was there more written on the world, did the plotlines go deeper??? I didn't know! This is an abridged recording, adequate for its purpose, but if you are like me, you will not like this sound-byte version of the story.

Other than that, the story is sound and it is an alluring tale. I considered this a three hour commercial for the real thing!

why so short? was this book an afterthought?
I feel left hanging...
it's as though Anne Rice started this but never got around to the storytelling...
