What the Critics Say

"Frightening, sensual.... 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, to become lightheaded as if our blood is slowly being drained away." ( San Francisco Chronicle)

I read this book many years ago and many other titles by Anne Rice. This is a true vampire classic which has been given a new dimension by a very talented narrator. Well done!

An illuminating experience

My perception of Lestat before I read this novel was of an impulsive, shallow and cruel vampire that never considered the deeper essence of his immortal being. In this novel your ideas change. This Lestat is different than the one we meet in interview with a vampire and Lestat is active in the novel exploration of the nature of a vampire and the existential dilemma caused by their immortality.

A fantastic book which deepens and expands the vampire world that Rice creates. I can't wait to finish and start "queen of the damned".
