We are in Paris on the Left Bank. The time is now. David meets Pandora in a crowded café, where she recounts her vampire tale - Pandora, two thousand years old, a Child of the Millennia, the first vampire ever made by the great Marius. David persuades her to write for him the story of her life. We see Pandora from her mortal girlhood as the daughter of aristocrats in the peaceful Rome of Caesar Augustus through her perilous journey towards the vampire Marius, who will bestow on her the Dark Gift, and the tale of their two centuries together before they are tragically lost to each other.

I enjoyed this story of Marius and Pandora but I wish it would have revealed what happened to her after their separation. Who was Arjun (from “Vampire Chronicles”) and why did he have such a strong hold on her? Also, whatever happened to Flavius?

This is an easier Anne Rice read. It for the most part can stand alone, but is much easier to understand if you have recently read the Vampire Chronicle books, as they are referenced a few times throughout this story.
