The Queen of the Damned
Book 3, The Vampire Chronicles
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In a feat of virtuoso storytelling, Anne Rice unleashes Akasha, the queen of the damned, who has risen from a six-thousand-year sleep to let loose the powers of the night. Akasha has a marvelously devious plan to “save” mankind and destroy the vampire Lestat—in this extraordinarily sensual novel of the complex, erotic, electrifying world of the undead.
Look for a special preview of Anne Rice’s Prince Lestat in the back of the book. The Vampire Chronicles continue in Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, available for pre-order now.
Praise for The Queen of the Damned
“Mesmerizing . . . a wonderful web of dark-side mythology.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“With The Queen of the Damned, Anne Rice has created universes within universes, traveling back in time as far as ancient, pre-pyramidic Egypt and journeying from the frozen mountain peaks of Nepal to the crowded, sweating streets of southern Florida.”—Los Angeles Times
“Imaginative . . . intelligently written . . . This is popular fiction of the highest order.”—USA Today
“A tour de force.”—The Boston Globe

Collapses in the middle
Unlike some other reviewers, I liked the Talamasca storyline. I also liked Jesse as a character. However, this thing just collapses under the ponderous weight of the "Story of the Twins." The Twins' story is just so bloated and boring, that it takes the life out of what initially promised to be another great adventure.
this book is great i loved every minute of it , i found that i could not put it down this is one of my favorites for sure
read it you will not be dissappointed
