Product Description

From the Inside Flap

"The hypnotic, deeply seductive novels of Anne Rice have captivated millions of fans around the world. It all began a quarter of a century ago with Interview with the Vampire." Now, in one chilling volume, here are the first three classic novels of The Vampire Chronicles.
INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE
Witness the confessions of a vampire. A novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force, it is a story of danger and flight, love and loss, suspense and resolution, and the extraordinary power of the senses.
"A magnificent, compulsively readable thriller . . . Anne Rice begins where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth-the education of the vampire."
-"Chicago Tribune
THE VAMPIRE LESTAT
Once an aristocrat from pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the decadent 1980s, Lestat rushes through the centuries seeking to fathom the mystery of his existence. His is a mesmerizing story-passionate and thrilling.
"Frightening, sensual . . . A psychological, mythological sojourn . . . Anne Rice will live on through the ages of literature. . . . To read her is to become giddy as if spinning through the mind of time."
"-San Francisco Chronicle
QUEEN OF THE DAMNED
Akasha, the queen of the damned, has risen from a six-thousand-year sleep to let loose the powers of the night. She has a marvelously devious plan to "save" mankind-in this vivid novel of the erotic, electrifying world of the undead.
"With "The Queen of the Damned, Anne Rice has created universes within universes, traveling back in time as far as ancient, pre-pyramidic Egypt and journeying from the frozen mountain peaks ofNepal to the crowded, sweating streets of southern Florida."
-"Los Angeles Times

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 31 Dec. 2005
Format: Paperback
Anne Rice revamped the vampire-horror genre with the publication of "Interview with the Vampire," a supernational drama from the vampire's own mouth. It became an unexpected hit, and spawned a series of sequels that came to be known as the Vampire Chronicles. The first three books of the series are compiled here, and arguably remain her best.

"Interview With the Vampire" is the story of Louis, a grieving young widower and plantation owner, whose life is turned upside down when he meets the charming vampire Lestat. Lestat offers him a way out: become a vampire. Louis accepts, but once it's done, he finds that vampirism is more than he bargained for -- especially for his conscience.

"The Vampire Lestat" takes a totally different tack, showing us the world through the enigmatic, charming Lestat's eyes. After years of dormancy, Lestat wakes up in time for the early MTV years of the 1980s, becoming a rock star in the tradition of Ozzy and Black Sabbath. And like Louis, Lestat relates his long life's story -- how he became a vampire, his wanderings over the earth, and his investigations into the origins of vampirism itself...

"Queen of the Damned" builds on that research. Lestat's metal music has caused quite a bit of mayhem -- but not this much before: Akasha, Egyptian queen and mother of all vampires, has reawoken from her comalike sleep. The lesser vampires are having strange dreams, some are being murdered by the ruthless queen. Apparently she wants to kill virtually all men. What is more, Akasha has taken a shine to the roguish Lestat himself...

Vampiric autobiography is a given in Anne Rice's bibliography -- she has plenty of bloodsuckers telling us about their lives.

I recently re-read these chronicles, and am now working my way through the later books. There is a reason why they are so popular....Anne Rice captures the wonder, imagination, horror, and beauty of the Vampires so perfectly. The films only touched upon the sensuality of the stories. The character's lives are woven togehter like a rich tapestry, and these are characters that you won't forget.
Anne Rice made Vampires sexy and sensual, breaking the mould which has led to modern day stories. Without Louis and Lestat, characters such as Angel and Spike would never have been thought up. Without the Vampire Chronicles, White Wolf would never have created the World of Darkness settings for Vampire the Masquerade.
Read these book, and immerse yourself in the beauty.

You may think this is a triology. It's not, it's only the beginning! Rice takes you on a nocturnal journey through the Old World, from Alexandria to Paris. The historical correctness in her writing helping to pull you down into the world of Lestat. We follow Lestat through centuries of happiness, sadness, trials and tribulations, from his birth in rural France to his career as a rock star in San Fransisco. What will happen if he wakes the mother of all vampires???? You'll have to read to find out!

A good collection of books there, I will admit to finding Interview with a vampire very slow but have found the vampire Lestat much better. Overall I think it is a good read to have and a different view point if you like your vampires.

The best vampire themed book series ever written in my opinion, arrived quickly and the book was in mint condition.
Although the series is so good I would recommend buying the individual hardbacks as its a read to read and read again.

Anne Rice has done it again. Not only are the books astounding but (on a completely irrelevant note) the films are too. Volume 1 is, and i may be biased, the best. Firstly, it tracks lestat through his ins and outs as a vampire who is relatively new to the darker side of the world, sceondly each chronicle is a novel in itself. My enthusiasm for the Vampire Chronicles was sparked off by the first one i ever read, Tale of the Body Thief. Now i wont ruin the ending, but it almost made me cry. Each book is amazing, with a new story yet a continuous feel throughout. Well worth the £11 it is now. I would have paid more! Im just waiting for volume 2, which looks set to be just as good as the first one, with anticipation.
