Did you ever wonder where all those mischievous vampires roaming the globe in Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles came from? In this, the third book in the series, we find out. That raucous rock-star vampire Lestat interrupts the 6,000-year slumber of the mama of all bloodsuckers, Akasha, Queen of the Damned.

Akasha was once the queen of the Nile (she has a bit in common with the Egyptian goddess Isis), and it's unwise to rile her now that she's had 60 centuries of practice being undead. She is so peeved about male violence that she might just have to kill most of them. And she has her eye on handsome Lestat with other ideas as well.

And the book arrived safe and sound. I am curious about it. I read Blood Canticle last year and it made me curious about Anne Rice's earlier books in this 'serie'. I'll let you know what I think. Thanks for sending it to me ReetPetite!

7 out of 10

There seems to be something about Anne Rice's books that has me a little puzzled. A while ago I read 'Blood Canticle' which I liked but something about the book irked me a little. I had then guessed I would probably like the earlier books in the Lestat series better. And I did, I enjoyed this book much more than Blood Canticle.
I really like the sensuous almost erotic feel this book has, it makes it all the more exciting. I love the mixture of old and new.
What bugged me a little is the jumping from a first person narrative to a thirs person, later in the book. And sometimes Rice's language. (I just can't figure out what bothers me about it though.)
Thanks again for sending it to me ReetPetite, I already know where is it going next!

The book has arrived, along with The Vampire Lestat - I'm really curious to find out how the Vampire Chronicles continue, since the first volume is one of my favourite books so far. Once again thank you very much, Ossiefry! :)
