"I should have done it Richard, but I was born in that house, as my father was, and his father before him. You must do it now, Richard. It has no claim on you. Tear it down."Anne Rice lures us once again into the seductive world of vampires with her short story, The Master of Rampling Gate. Set in 1888, Richard and Julie are the sole heirs to Rampling Gate, the beautiful but foreboding 400-year-old family mansion. Despite the dying wish of their father to destroy the property, the siblings visit the ancient home and are immediately enchanted by it. What was the "unspeakable horror" their father saw in the luxurious home they are so drawn to? Slowly memories return to Julie of a handsome, pale-faced stranger, glimpsed only briefly when she was young. The memories soon become a reality when Julie discovers the mystery behind the house, and learns who the master of Rampling Gate truly is.The Master of Rampling Gate was originally published in Redbook magazine in 1984.

Great story, too short

This was another great story about the Mayfair witches by Ann Rice. In the 45 minutes Ann has you she takes you to another level, as usually she does. Being the fact that the story is ONLY 45 minutes leaves alot to be said. I myself, and as i see others wish this was a longer story. Wishing doesn't get you much now does it though? So if you are thinking aboou purchasing this book, just go for it, it is a great listen, quick, and the usual for Ann Rice. You will not be dissapointed.
