Anne Rice Talks Of Love And Evil

Anne Rice’s new chapter in her Songs of the Seraphim book series, entitled Of Love and Evil, will be hitting shelves on November 30th through Knopf Publishing. The author stated on her Facebook that she’s having some issues being patient and anticipating the release. She stated that “the wait seems dreadfully long for me. I’m eager for it to be in the hands of readers, for it to be alive in their minds.” The book is described as “continuing the magnificent Songs of the Seraphim with a lyrical and haunting new novel of angels and assassins set in dark and dangerous worlds—in our time and in centuries past.” After the jump, you can check out a full synopsis of the book.

Toby O’Dare, former government assassin, is summoned by the angel Malchiah to fifteenth-century Rome—the city of Michelangelo and Raphael, of Leo X and the Holy Inquisition—to solve a terrible crime of poisoning and to uncover the secrets of an earthbound restless spirit, a diabolical dybbuk. Toby is plunged into this rich age as a lutist sent to charm and calm this troublesome spirit.

In the fullness of the high Italian Renaissance, Toby soon discovers himself in the midst of dark plots and counterplots, surrounded by a still darker and more dangerous threat as the veil of ecclesiastical terror closes in around him. And as he once again embarks on a powerful journey of atonement, he is reconnected with his own past, with matters light and dark, fierce and tender, with the promise of salvation and with a deeper and richer vision of love.
