The Queen of the Undead is back, with her first Vampire Chronicle in fifteen years
Anne Rice is the author of more than thirty internationally bestselling books including The Mayfair Witches sequence, The Songs of the Seraphim and, most recently, The Wolf Gift Chronicles . The phenomenon that became The Vampire Chronicles started with Interview with a Vampire in 1976, later made into a film starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, and culminated with Blood Canticle in 2003. Prince Lestat is the first new Vampire Chronicle novel for over a decade. Anne Rice lives in California.
"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
