Anne Rice, creator of the Vampire Lestat, the Mayfair witches and the amazing worlds they inhabit, now gives us the first in a new series of novels linked together by the fledgling vampire David Talbot, who has set out to become a chronicler of his fellow Undead. The novel opens in present-day Paris in a crowded café, where David meets Pandora. She is two thousand years old, a Child of the Millennia, the first vampire ever made by the great Marius. David persuades her to tell the story of her life. Pandora begins, reluctantly at first and then with increasing passion, to recount her mesmerizing tale, which takes us through the ages, from Imperial Rome to eighteenth-century France to twentieth-century Paris and New Orleans. She carries us back to her mortal girlhood in the world of Caesar Augustus, a world chronicled by Ovid and Petronius. This is where Pandora meets and falls in love with the handsome, charismatic, lighthearted, still-mortal Marius. This is the Rome she is forced to flee in fear of assassination by conspirators plotting to take over the city. And we follow her to the exotic port of Antioch, where she is destined to be reunited with Marius, now immortal and haunted by his vampire nature, who will bestow on her the Dark Gift as they set out on the fraught and fantastic adventure of their two turbulent centuries together. Look for Anne Rice's new book, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, coming November 29, 2016.… (més)

What can I say about this? Well, it was pretty boring. Not much really happened, and Pandora didn't even become a vampire until more than halfway through, then there was really nothing about her life as a vampire, with or without Marius. But I guess I at least made it through this one. I quit Marius' story after 100 pages because it was just literal history of Rome, and that is not what I read fiction for. Pandora had the opportunity to be a captivating story and it just wasn't. I basically just pushed through because I hate DNF-ing a book.

All in all, I'd skip this one if you didn't like Marius' story, or if you're iffy about the series in general. You wouldn't seem to be missing a whole lot. Anne Rice has always been a difficult read for me, but some voices are better storytellers than others, and this did not hold up to Quinn's voice in Blackwood Farm, which is the only Rice book that I was actively trying to read more of.

I love my girl Pandora but after two thousand years she should really have learned something about toxic relationships. Accidentally, this makes her one of the most relatable of the Vampires, which in itself is very sad.

Given all her desire to be independent in her mortal years, her immortal life is defined by her relationships and the men she meets. Which is also sad. And in the end she does it all over again...

All of this makes this book and this character just so very believable and I did get the feeling none of it was romanticized, so I still love it as a tragic story about how we sometimes make the same mistakes over and over again. And a basic rule of Rice's Vampires is: we never really change, we just become more and more who we really are. But I still wanted something more substantial. ( )

Anne Rice has stated she wants book reviewers to be required to post with their full, real name. In response, I am removing all my reviews of her novels as I am unable and unwilling to do this. I am no longer comfortable reading or reviewing her work. Thank you.

Not as gripping a story, not an engaging character, a lot of history. Pandora is not likeable...I did not come to care about her or her journey. ( )

I struggle to find the words to do justice to the artistry of this book... From the very beginning [b:Pandora|353503|Pandora (New Tales of the Vampires, #1)|Anne Rice|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1327199611s/353503.jpg|2926330] entralls the reader with rich details of the powerful, monstrous, yet also reverent and beautiful Pandora.

Not twenty minutes have passed since you left me here in the café, since I said No to your request, that I would never write out for you the story of my mortal life, how I became a vampire-- how I came upon Marius only years after he had lost his human life.
