Product description

Review

"Rice is a superb storyteller with a fabulously rich imagination, and such ringing authority of tone that you’ll believe vampires really exist." (Kate Saunders The Times)

"Few contemporary American or British novelists have had as much cultural impact over the past four decades as Anne Rice" (Washington Post)

"Rice is a charismatic and passionate storyteller" (Alexandra Heminsley Indepenent on Sunday)

"Anne is back with a bang" (Sun)

"Sappy, vegetarian Edward Cullen lacks teeth compared to Rice's dastardly Lestat. Put it this way: Meyer is vampire-lite; Rice serves up no-holds barred in delicious, full-fat glory" (Susan Swarbrick The Herald)

"The Queen of modern vampire fiction" (Fortean Times)

"Distinctive lyricism... clever, well plotted and engaging" (Herald)

"Beautiful writing" (Jonathan Wright SFX)

"Anne Rice creates a revolution or sorts in the book that will hopefully lead to new installments of the Vampire Chronicles, the path for this is now wide open and I for one look forward to what comes next" (5 stars Nerdly (Blog))

"This is a welcome return to the luxurious, elegant world of these bloodsuckers, and Rice proves she’s still more than capable of biting wit and some gruesome horror" (Jonathan Hatfull SciFiNow)

Book Description

The Queen of the Undead is back, with her first Vampire Chronicle in fifteen years

Oh dear, what a mess! Is this really Anne Rice's work? What has happened to all my favourite characters? I can only think that the author is bored and wrote this simply for the cash. This book cheats all he fans, new characters pop up with no warning, old characters are pale shadows of their former selves, No more please, I cannot afford to throw away any more cash.Oh, and before I finish The chronicles possessed something called a plot , sadly missing here. Do not buy this novel unless you simply make collections.

I would like to start off this review by telling you that I have, within the last five minutes of writing these words, finished this book on my beloved Kindle. I am an avid fan, to say the least, of The Vampire Chronicles and The Mayfair Witches series of books by Anne Rice, and I qualify this by telling you that I have read each of the previous ten major Vampire Chronicles books (and the off-shoot New Tales) probably about ten times over, and the Mayfair books a little less than that. I was enchanted from the very first book, and am in love with Anne Rice's visions of vampires.

So onto Prince Lestat. I had no expectations for this book, only that it had been ten years since the release of the last, Blood Canticle, and I was excited to get started a soon as I could, (and having just finished the 'Game of Thrones' books, I was more than ready for a change of pace.) Before starting the book, I was a little confused as to the notion that although this book comes after Blood Canticle, it is the true sequel to The Queen of the Damned. However, that confusion went away very soon afterwards as I realised what this meant. We were going to revisit the events that transpired there and pick up the thread of the fate of the twins and the fate of the spirit, Amel, who in fact created the vampires by melding with Akasha.

Oh, was I in for a beautiful journey. Unexpected turns, in respect to certain characters such as Viktor, I was able to digest as they came, for I have already accepted in my heart that these vampires and characters are complete and real to me; and so, why not? It was no less than the fate of the Taltos in the book, Taltos of the Mayfair books, something wholly modern developing with historical and ancient beings.

All pretenders to the throne stand aside, the true queen of the Vampire genre has returned.

In the eleven years since the last book in the Vampire Chronicles the world has seen a rise in teen friendly vampires who are pale, soap opera style imitations of the vampires found in Anne Rice's work. Whilst not the complete soulless monsters of their earliest forefathers, Anne Rice's vampires were the perfect balance of the macabre, tortured soul and protagonist to become the near perfect mix of vampire that a large audience loves to read about... myself included.

Whilst the Vampire Chronicles have always been a bit hit and miss for me, they are still what I consider to be the quintessential vampire stories. The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned especially are books that I have returned to time and again for their incredible writing and wonderful stories.

There were three questions in my mind that surrounded this book:

1 - Can Anne Rice still write an excellent Vampire story that do the characters we all love justice after such a long hiatus?

2 - Is there actually any more meaningful story to be told in the Vampire Chronicles?

3 - Will Anne Rice be able to come out of vampire retirement to show all of the wannabes who rose in her wake just who is boss?

The answer to all three is a resounding YES!

Anne Rice has not lost a step in her time away from these characters. All vampires are every bit the characters I knew and love from the old books; Lestat is still the wonderful mix of humorous brat and highly competent protagonist to carry a story and basically it was as though the years between the last book and this one never happened.

The first five books of the Vampire Chronicles are on my favourite books list. Loved them, and read them over and over again. The quality did decline after that in the series, but generally was still readable.
So I was excited to know that Anne Rice had gone back to the series.
Unfortunately this book is abysmal and will be my last Anne Rice book, except if I find something old I haven't read. Absolutely nothing happens, tons of characters that don't really differ from each other. Description after boring description of how good each of these useless characters look. Nothing grips you to the story, and it just becomes a chore dragging yourself through it.
Quit halfway through.

Loved the first three books of the Vampire series and some of the Vampire individual stories. Unfortunately this reboot of the series with Lestat was painful. I rather wish I hadn't read it at all. I didn't find the writing up to Rice's old standards and the storyline was irksome. I have reread my earlier favourites and still find them some of the finest fictional writing ever. Just not this addition to the series.
