Lestat. The vampire hero of Anne Rice’s enthralling novel is a creature of the darkest and richest imagination. Once an aristocrat in the heady days of pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the demonic, shimmering 1980s, he rushes through the centuries in search of others like him, seeking answers to the mystery of his eternal, terrifying exsitence. His is a mesmerizing story—passionate, complex, and thrilling.
The Vampire Chronicles continue in Prince Lestat. Look for a special preview in the back of the book.
Praise for The Vampire Lestat

“Fiercely ambitious, nothing less than a complete unnatural history of vampires.”—The Village Voice
“Brilliant . . . its undead characters are utterly alive.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Luxuriantly created and richly told.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer

Written well after Interview, the Vampire Lestat is a true classic deserving to be placed up the with the best this genre has to offer. One of the very best books I've ever read. Worth every penny.
The movie of the first book was a childhood favorite of mine. Happy to continue the series with the books.
