The brilliantly decadent, sensual sequel to the classic international bestseller INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE
Anne Rice is the author of the celebrated series of gothic novels featuring the vampire Lestat, and as Anne Rampling and A.N. Roquelaure she is one of the best contemporary writers of erotic fiction.Previous Books: The Queen of the Damned, The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty , Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat
Rice continues what promises to be a series with this fascinating sequel to her Interview with the Vampire. One of its characters, Lestat, encouraged by the telling of that story, narrates his own history, focusing on his boyhood transformation, subsequent wanderings, and constant attempts to rationalize his newly acquired immortality. Don't expect the usual stake-in-the-heart story; Rice is creating a new vampire mythos, mixing ancient Egyptian legends into her narrative, and weaving a rich and unforgettable tale of dazzling scenes and vivid personalities. This extraordinary book outclasses most contemporary horror fiction and is a novel to be savored. Highly recommended. Literary Guild alternate. Eric W. Johnson, Univ. of New Haven Lib., West Haven
