Description

From Anne Rice, conjurer of the beloved best sellers Interview with the Vampire and Prince Lestat, an ambitious and exhilarating new novel of utopian vision and power
 
"In my dreams, I saw a city fall into the sea. I heard the cries of thousands. I saw flames that outshone the lamps of heaven. And all the world was shaken . . ." --Anne Rice, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis
 
At the novel's center: the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, hero, leader, inspirer, irresistible force, irrepressible spirit, battling (and ultimately reconciling with) a strange otherworldly form that has somehow taken possession of Lestat's undead body and soul. This ancient and mysterious power and unearthly spirit of vampire lore has all the force, history, and insidious reach of the unknowable Universe.

It is through this spirit, previously considered benign for thousands of vampire years and throughout the Vampire Chronicles, that we come to be told the hypnotic tale of a great sea power of ancient times; a mysterious heaven on earth situated on a boundless continent--and of how and why, and in what manner and with what far-reaching purpose, this force came to build and rule the great legendary empire of centuries ago that thrived in the Atlantic Ocean.

And as we learn of the mighty, far-reaching powers and perfections of this lost kingdom of Atalantaya, the lost realms of Atlantis, we come to understand its secrets, and how and why the vampire Lestat, indeed all the vampires, must reckon so many millennia later with the terrifying force of this ageless, all-powerful Atalantaya spirit.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 31, 2016 – Rice teases readers with questions what is the place called Atalantaya, and what does Amel, the Core that connects all vampires and currently resides in vampire prince Lestat, have to do with it? for fully half of her 12th Vampire Chronicles novel (after 2014's Prince Lestat), which spans our entire world and beyond, before a cohesive narrative coalesces around the answers. When any of the 12,000-year-old self-cloning aliens called Replimoids take center stage, there are interesting sparks. They soon fade, though, as Lestat and his confidants (and the reader) wait for anything to happen. But when Kapetria, who speaks for the Replimoids, begins to give real information to Lestat and members of his court about Amel and the Replimoids' origins, the book finally catches fire. Initially, the concept of adding aliens to vampires, spirits, and witches is an eye roller, but Rice exhibits tremendous skill in making the impossible seem not only possible but logical. She sets up a nail-biting dilemma involving the continued existence of vampires, and the second half of the book roars satisfyingly past.

Customer Reviews

You thought Vampires were"outre"...

Anne Rice takes her series to another level...and not so much in a good way. This is the origin story of the originator of all blood drinkers.
And that could be OK except there are plot holes...neigh...plot crevices in this tale.
It feels like this book was a bridge book-because why else would she have given us a back story that leaves more questions than answers.
If she isn't getting ready to take the story to a new place that fills in the major story gaps then I am just not sure why she wrote this book.
If you are a faithful LeStat fan you will buy this book.
If you aren't don't start with this one.

Great conclusion
