The hypnotic, deeply seductive novels of Anne Rice have captivated millions of fans around the world. It all began a quarter of a century ago with Interview with the Vampire. Now, in one chilling volume, here are the first three classic novels of The Vampire Chronicles.
INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE
Witness the confessions of a vampire. A novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force, it is a story of danger and flight, love and loss, suspense and resolution, and the extraordinary power of the senses.
“A magnificent, compulsively readable thriller . . . Anne Rice begins where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth–the education of the vampire.”
THE VAMPIRE LESTAT
Once an aristocrat from pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the decadent 1980s, Lestat rushes through the centuries seeking to fathom the mystery of his existence. His is a mesmerizing story–passionate and thrilling.
“Frightening, sensual . . . A psychological, mythological sojourn . . . 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.”
–San Francisco Chronicle
QUEEN OF THE DAMNED
Akasha, the queen of the damned, has risen from a six-thousand-year sleep to let loose the powers of the night. She has a marvelously devious plan to “save” mankind–in this vivid novel of the erotic, electrifying world of the undead.
“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
Hi, I’m Rosaku-Aishi, and I like this book, it’s deeply terrifying, my tummy was hurting I was so scared, and I had to play Wii games instead! (btw whoever translated the end of Super Mario Bros. 3 is so SICK! Omg they did SUCH a bad job...anyway I’m josei so! I can read hiragana, kanji AND katakana AND translate into English...) please see my review on Sadako vs Kayako, ju-on and some other Japanese horror or anime (like Sailor Moon, Your Name).
Anyway, great job Anne rice!
Some are winners.
Some books are winners. Some are losers. I thoroughly enjoyed Prince Lestat, Interview with a Vampire, and The Vampire Lestat. I would recommend buying separately as the other books just aren’t really worth it in my opinion. I am fine living without them and erasing their existence from my mind.
Is there no author in my entire collection that can string together a semblance of a book that's actually worth consideration?
You're supposed to reel readers in, not drive them away.
