By Anne Rice

A beautiful departure, a stunning and compelling return...From Anne Rice, perennial most sensible vendor, single-handed reinventor of the vampire cosmology-a new, exhilarating novel, a deepening of her vampire mythology, and a chillingly hypnotic mystery-thriller.

"What do we do yet succeed in for the include that needs to now
contain either heaven and hell: our doom repeatedly and
again..." -from The Vampire Lestat

Rice once more summons up the impossible to resist spirit-world of the oldest and strongest forces of the evening, invisible beings unleashed on an unsuspecting global in a position to take blood from people, in a long-awaited go back to the extreme global of the Vampire Chronicles and the uniquely seductive Queen of the Damned("mesmerizing" -SF Chronicle), a long-awaited novel that selections up the place The Vampire Lestat ("brilliant...its undead characters are completely alive" -New York instances) left off greater than 1 / 4 of a century in the past to create a rare new international of spirits and forces-the characters, legend, and lore of the entire Vampire Chronicles.

The novel opens with the vampire global in crisis...vampires were proliferating uncontrolled; burnings have started out around the globe, large massacres just like these conducted through Akasha within the Queen of the Damned...Old vampires, roused from shut eye within the earth are doing the bidding of a Voice commanding that they indiscriminately burn vampire-mavericks in towns from Paris and Mumbai to Hong Kong, Kyoto, and San Francisco.

As the unconventional strikes from present-day big apple and the West Coast to historic Egypt, fourth century Carthage, 14th-century Rome, the Venice of the Renaissance, the worlds and beings of all of the Vampire Chronicles-Louis de Pointe du Lac; the without end younger Armand, whose face is that of a Boticelli angel; Mekare and Maharet, Pandora and Flavius; David Talbot, vampire and supreme fixer from the key Talamasca; and Marius, the genuine baby of the Millennia; besides the entire different new seductive, supernatural creatures-come jointly during this huge, luxuriant, fiercely formidable novel to eventually get up and search out who-or what-the Voice is, and to find the key of what it wishes and why...

And, on the book's middle, the doubtless absent, apparently lacking hero-wanderer, the striking, harmful rebel-outlaw-the nice wish of the Undead, the mind-blowing Prince Lestat...
