Praise for Anne Rice's
"[Rice] retakes her throne as Queen of the Damned . . . visceral and gritty . . . [Prince Lestat] infuses new life into the Vampire Chronicles and sets the stage for a new era.
-Elise de los Santos, Chicago RedEye
"No one does what Anne Rice does . . . Not only does she find ways--brilliant ways--to tease new narrative potential from old stories, she does so while acknowledging that those stories are already part of the other characters' psyches. I don't know of any other novelist doing that . . . she has not lost any of her flair for description, allowing us to experience the world the way her vampires do, with the sensory volume turned up to 11 . . . fun, sexy, and irresistible."
-John Russell, Next Magazine
"Bloody marvelous . . . Prince Lestat is saving the undead from banality and overfamiliarity."
-Daniel D'Addario, Time
"Anne Rice reminds us just how immense and rich with history her universe of poetic, morally questioning vampires is, and Prince Lestat serves as a palate cleanser to the hormone-soaked teen dramas of the past few years. It's nice to have a real grown-up back in the game."
-Cotton Codinha, Elle
"Ambitious...Rice never lost touch with the exuberant, often witty, and always fearless voice of irrepressible vampire Lestat de Lioncourt... Rice has offered us a tale of tremendous ambition, and she's absolutely delivered."
-Matthew Jackson, BookPage
