An international bestseller and beloved cultural touchstone, Anne Rice’s classic novel Interview with the Vampire starts “where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth” (Chicago Tribune). But that’s only the beginning. Over the course of twelve interwoven novels, Rice crafts a richly imagined, magnificently transporting epic around her chilling, charismatic antihero, Lestat. An aristocrat in the heady days of pre-revolutionary France who lives to become a rock star in the demonic, shimmering 1980s, Lestat rushes through the centuries in search of others like him, seeking answers to the mystery of his eternal, terrifying existence.

Praise for the novels of Anne Rice
“Brilliant . . . [Rice’s] undead characters are utterly alive.”—The New York Times Book Review
“If you surrender and go with her . . . you have surrendered to enchantment, as in a voluptuous dream.”—The Boston Globe
“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
“Unrelentingly erotic . . . sometimes beautiful, and always unforgettable.”—The Washington Post
“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
“Fiercely ambitious, nothing less than a complete unnatural history of vampires.”—The Village Voice
The Vampire Chronicles
Only the reason for all the Vamp hype of the 21 st century. Anne Rice is a wonderful author. The Vampire Lestat is one of the best books I have ever read. I was in France. I was on the Island. And New Orleans I could almost smell. Anyone who has not read this series has not enjoyed the best in American Horror for the 20th century.
One of the best series in books ever, all in one bundle! Woohoo!
