Title : Merrick
By : Anne Rice
I got this book, because I thought it was about witches. It is, but it is also about vampires. This book brought my love of one vampire named, “Lestat” in the movie/book “The Interview with the Vampires.”
Let’s get back to the book in hand, “Merrick”:
Louis is very unhappy, because he is unsure if Claudia’s spirit was at peace. Lestat was in a deep sleep, who else was there to help him understand this problem. David Talbot – I’m guessing is the author who wrote Louis’s story and Lestat turned him into a vampire, is the one who is his (Louis) next closest friend.
David had been friends with Merrick since she was a young girl. He knew the family of the Mayfair Witches. She (Merrick) help them and is convinced the spirit lied when she told Louis she (Claudia) didn’t care for him etc… etc…..
Merrick tricks Louis into giving her some of his blood. He went against his word and made her a vampire. Louis tried to kill himself, by putting himself into a yard – waiting for the sun. Lastat awoke late, but was able to save him (Louis).
Anyway, I enjoyed this book and it got me wanting to read all of the books, which tell a story with Lastat in it, and Tom Cruise’s face reminding me how cute Lastat is (if he was real).
