Publisher's Summary

Pandora is the first in a 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 2,000 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 through the ages.
Pandora carries you back to her mortal girlhood in the world of Caesar Augustus, where she meets and falls in love with the handsome, charismatic, lighthearted, still-mortal Marius. She is forced to flee in fear of assassination by conspirators plotting to take over the city. You then 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.
Pandora is Volume 1 of The New Tales of the Vampires.

poor production value

It might be a good book but I cant get past the poor sound quality. There is a hissing sound in the back ground every time the narrator speaks.

I also have the abridged version and there is no such issue with the sound quality but the abridgment cuts out too many details that make Anne Rice books so enjoyable.

A wonderful Tale

This is a wonderful tale that brings you through the 'life' of Pandora. Anne Rice has given us a series of tales from Pandora's life that is written with insight, drama, and emotion. It fills in some more history of the Vampires that continually brings her world depth and interest.
The Reader was exceptional. So pleasant to listen to. She added life and spirit to this tale of the 'undead'.
I was sorry that her story had to end so...on to Armand.
I Loved It!
