Where and how Merrick's birth might have been recorded eluded our most diligent efforts. No baptism of Merrick Mayfair was recorded in any parish church in New Orleans for the year of Merrick's birth.

Part of The Vampire Chronicles series by Anne Rice. The door of the car opened, and a dark shape moved towards Merrick, and she turned, extending her slender arms in welcome, and caught her victim in midstep. I saw the man freeze as she sank her teeth; I saw him go limp; I saw her arms easily hold his bulk.

I always love any book I read from Anne Rice. I read this one expecting it to follow along with the Mayfair Witches. Being that Merrick IS from the Mayfair family.

The caretaker says she’s been drinking. She will not talk to him. I’ve called every hour since morning. The phone simply rings and rings. Why didn’t you tell me this was happening?. I demanded s deeply concerned. Why? So you’d worry about it all the way across the Atlantic? I knew you were coming. I know you’re the only one who can reason with her when she’s in this state. Whatever in the world makes you think so?. Sometimes I could talk Merrick into ending her binges.

Louis is a vampire tortured by guilt. His status as a killer has left him conflicted for much of his immortal life, but after the murder of Claudia, his beloved child vampire, he spirals into a state of depression. And in a moment of desperation he decides to bring her back with the help of the beautiful witch Merrick. To save Louis' sanity, Merrick must use black magic to call up the ghost of Claudia - however dangerous this may be. But in the dark unknown of the underworld there are other spirits who will not lie still, and her search takes her close to the edge of peril.

There is a good novel that could have come from the outlined bullet points of this book. Merrick is a powerful witch in new Orleans who is related to the Mayfair family and is a member of the Talamasca. She is very good at contacting the dead. She knows David the vampire from his days in the Talamasca. Angsty, sensitive Louis wants to contact his long lost Claudia to be sure she is at peace. Gentlemanly, shrewd David somewhat reluctantly brings these two people from his two different worlds together to help Louis get over this obsession. Lestat is asleep for some reason. And Merrick may have her own agenda during all of this....

For those who have read the vampire chronicles and the Mayfair witch books, this could have been a fun and interesting off-shoot. And it is not terrible as a book, it just kind of falls flat. Nothing new or very interesting happens. Merrick is kept too mysterious to really flesh out as a character. There is a lot of flowery description of New Orleans and seductive hips and bosoms and skirts and long tapering fingers and stuff. Which is a given with any Anne Rice novel whether you like it or not, but this one has too much description and not enough plot. Things speed up and get a bit interesting in the final chapters.

Basically a middle-of-the-road Anne Rice Novel

The beginning of the story David tells of how he knew of Merrick's powers and abilities to Louis. Also about how much David care for Merrick. Louis is deeply tormented with thoughts that is beloved Claudia might not be at peace.

Finally after David finished the story Louis get to meet Merrick. Louis and Merrick are taken with each other. Merrick agrees to do the spell to bring forth the spirit of Claudia. What will happen when Claudia comes forth? Will she confirm Louis' fear that she is not at peace or will she be at peace? What will be the consequences of the magic? Will anyone of our beloved characters be killed or hurt? What will happen to Merrick?

I love, love, love this book. It is one of my all time favorites and it is the book that got be started on my love of vampires. If you love books about witches, spirits, and vampires I would recommend you read this series. To fully understand Claudia you need to read Interview With A Vampire.

One last note. Anne Rice's vampires are different from any other vampire books I have ever read.(and I have read tons of vampire books) I love them!! They are the standard that I measure all other vampire books by. These books are romantic in a different level. The vampires are passionate but not in the sense of paranormal romance (and I love a good paranormal romance). They don't mate but they do stick together.

I always love any book I read from Anne Rice. I read this one expecting it to follow along with the Mayfair Witches. Being that Merrick IS from the Mayfair family. This is based more on the Lestat and Louis storyline it seems, with Merrick as a main feature. Sort of a convergence. The first-person POV I had to get used to. Whenever I read it long enough though, I found myself getting lost in the lyrical quality of the writing, as Anne Rice is great at. This is a great book to read maybe after you've gone through the Mayfair series and the Lestat series. Then you converge into this book at the right place. Since I haven't read the Lestat books, I was a bit lost. Seen the Interview with the Vampire movie, but as anyone can tell you, that's a different story entirely. So I knew of Louis and Lestat, not so much the rest of it. Left me a bit lost, but that was fine by me. Great story, great book. Now it makes me want to read the Mayfair Witches all over again!

There's a story here, but it isn't (spoiler) the tale of how a Mayfair witch became a vampire. Not is it the story of Louis's "sort of" redemption from his guilt about his unnatural daughter and eventual vampire lover Claudia, and his rebirth into a new vampire family. That's nominally what the narrative builds toward. You could say there's very little action, what there is is mostly in flashback.

But action is not what makes up this book's pleasures. I got the sense that Anne Rice wanted to share the smells and textures and that special rich atmosphere that had enchanted her about parts of New Orleans that possibly no longer exist, and she wanted the pleasure of sharing her observation of some real life people she loved to watch in life. So she came up with an excuse, some side plot lines, to allow her to indulge herself. I, for one, am grateful she did. I just wish she didn't have to tie it with the story of Lestat, and instead spent more time observing Merrick and her close family through the centuries.

Another great read that doesn't disappoint! I liked the story being told by David one of the youngest vampires, but one of the oldest in his human years. I can sometimes guess, speculate to a degree where she is going with some of her story lines, however, this one took me a little more by surprise. I like the way the story is told from David's mature point of view & his unique calmness. I love how you come to know and love the world and the characters Anne Rice creates. You can tell how much love and immense thought and imagination she puts into her stories, most especially her characters. I will never get tired of reading the vampire chronicles! Consider me a fan who is appreciative for her talents...for without her I could not escape the madness of this world and lose myself in her wonderful story telling. Thank you for another fantastic story!

Having read the entire Lives Of The Mayfair Witches trilogy, I had to read Merrick. Merrick is a powerful Witch from the other side of the family. Her history is rather different and more earthy than the regular Mayfairs. The garden district Mayfairs. Merrick is far from regular. She's adorable, psychic, intelligent, willing to dare. The organization, 'we watch and we are always here', returns to New Orleans, the scene of the spell. Whoops! Well, there it is. Now add some vampires. You have an entertaining, emotional, thoughtful extravaganza.
