Overview

Lowen the Dark Man – a ghost from the planet Khariton who possesses human hosts – has captured Theo, imprisoned the Red Man, and has turned almost an entire city into his army of Sleeper Devils.

Wyn and Ms. Crystobal have planned a daring rescue attempt for Theo and the Red Man, but they cannot pull it off without the help of Mary Paige, the young Blood Vivicanti with the photographic memory. Although she no longer has any desire to drink blood, she uses all her remaining Blood Memories to help her friends break into Lowen's Black Building.

But the Kharetie ghost has plans of his own for Theo, much to the surprise and sorrow of Mary Paige.

International Bestselling Author ANNE RICE and BECKET bring you the original new story of THE BLOOD VIVICANTI.

The penultimate Blood Vivicanti installment is packed with non-stop action from start to finish, with hardly even a single moment of downtime for your adrenaline to slow. With an artful finesse, Becket manages to combine multiple genres- sci-fi, horror, mystery, fantasy- seamlessly. Each character is fully-formed, with fears, needs, wants, and deep desires, and Becket pulls these out through every line of insightful prose, in Mary Paige's philosophical narration. The story packs a large punch, in few words. Each character is filled with a sometimes-tragic wisdom about what life means for them. And whether you love, or hate them, you can never say you don’t understand. The installment begins with a rescue mission, but at no point is it simple for the reader to predict exactly what will come next. And by the time we reach the dramatic ending- which I’ll refrain from spoiling- so much is clear, yet much is also left for the final installment. Every character evolves, some in a subtle way and others in a bigger way. One of my favorite qualities in a good writer is the ability to straddle the lines of right and wrong, and present dimensional characters who are not wholly good, or bad. Lowen, even in his frenzy to start a new race and take over the world, is not wholly bad. At times, you can even understand where he is coming from. And while I think I’ve mentioned this in my reviews of the other installments, it bears repeating: Each serial reveals the story in just the right amounts. Each brings something new, and crucial, to the overall tale. This is not often an easy thing to do, in a serialized presentation. Becket also has a talent for making things familiar, by imbuing the story with relevant, but geeky, references. And, of course, the careful interspersing of humor, which is fun without taking us out of the seriousness of the moment. This has been true of every installment in this series, but it never ceases to strike me as a point of reading enjoyment. Looking forward to the final installment soon!
