The debauchery and brutal perversions of the Marquis de Sade were notorious in his own lifetime. But even death could not stop his twisted passions, his search for pain and pleasure. Death only gave the Marquis more power. He lives to this day, a master vampire, preying on humans to quench his thirst, to appease his lust.
For centuries Sade has thrived in the darkest netherworlds of New York and Paris, but now he has traveled to a different city, to seek new flesh and fresh blood. He has come to New Orleans, legendary city of excess and abandon. But he will soon discover that he is not the only creature of the night in this town. For New Orleans is also the home of voodoo--and of the Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau. Could her powers prove even mightier than Sade's?
