《血夜頌歌》為安·萊絲「吸血鬼紀事」 (The Vampire Chronicles)的完結篇。(前九部分別為《夜訪吸血鬼》、《吸血鬼黎斯特》、《天譴者的女王》、《肉體竊賊》、《惡魔蔓諾克》、《少年吸血鬼阿曼德》、《Merrick》、《聖血與純金》、《Blackwood Farm》。)
Fiery, fierce, and erotic, Blood Canticle marks the triumphant culmination of Anne Rice's bestselling Vampire Chronicles, as Lestat tells his astounding tale of the pleasures and tortures that lie between death's shadow and immortality. . . .

Surrounded by its brooding swampscape, Blackwood Farm is alive with the comings and goings of the bewitched and the bewitching. Among them is the ageless vampire Lestat, vainglorious enough to believe that he can become a saint, weak enough to fall impossibly in love.
Gripped by his unspeakable desire for the mortal Rowan Mayfair and taking the not so innocent, new-to-the-blood Mona Mayfair under his wing, Lestat braves the wrath of paterfamilias Julien Mayfair and ventures to a private island off the coast of Haiti. There, Saint Lestat will get his chance to slay his dragon. For Mona and the Mayfairs share an explosive, secret blood bond to another deathless species: a five-thousand-year-old race of Taltos, strangers held in the throes of evil itself.

  美國哥德式恐怖小說與情慾書寫的代表作家,作品有數十冊,其中吸血鬼系列暢銷數千萬冊。
  安·萊絲生於紐奧良天主教家庭,在舊金山大學取得政治學學位。她開始寫作起因於六歲的女兒1975年死於白血病。次年(1976年)她即以《夜訪吸血鬼》一書在文壇崛起。
  「吸血鬼紀事」(The Vampire Chronicles)包括:《夜訪吸血鬼》(1976)、《吸血鬼黎斯特》(1985)、《天譴者的女王》(1988)、《肉體竊賊》(1992)等精采經典;此系列晚近幾部如《少年吸血鬼阿曼德》、《聖血與純金》,以及完結篇《血夜頌歌》讓作者穩居超自然文學大師寶座。
  安·萊斯將筆下的吸血鬼社群刻鏤得曼妙鮮利,聲色奪人之餘更充斥著慾力奔流的異質生命能量;吸血族版圖則自歐洲橫跨至美洲新大陸,包括溯源到數千年前的古埃及,隨著跨文化跨情慾版圖的吸血鬼譜系,安·萊絲也受到全世界的讀者喜愛。
  此外安·萊斯還以「梅菲爾女巫生涯三部曲」、《木乃伊》、《骸骨侍從》等書切入超自然視界的不朽情讎,雕琢出各色非人主角顛倒眾生的異色魅力。《小提琴》是以古典音樂為背景的感官創作。新近作品有《耶穌基督:走出埃及》和《耶穌基督:通往迦南的道路》。
