After a 15 year wait LESTAT is back in Anne Rice's new and long awaited Vampire Chronicles novel

“In my dreams, I saw a city fall into the sea. I heard the cries of thousands. I saw flames that outshone the lamps of heaven. And all the world was shaken...”


Lestat de Lioncourt is no longer alone.


A strange, otherworldly spirit has resurfaced, taking possession of his body and soul. All-seeing, all-knowing, its voice whispers in his ear, telling the hypnotic tale of Atlantis, the great sea power of ancient times…
Prince Lestat is seduced by the power of this ancient spirit, but is he right to trust it? Why has Lestat, leader of the vampires, been chosen as its bodily host?


And what of Atlantis, the mysterious heaven on earth? Why must the vampires reckon so many millennia later with the terrifying force of this ageless, all-powerful Atalantaya spirit?
It falls to Lestat to discover the truth.

‘There’s little doubt about the paperback that will be selling like hotcakes this month. Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles saga continues.’ - SFX

‘Linguistically masterful, structurally solid and weaved like a gossamer web of nightwalker excellence. Anne Rice further solidifies her undisputed reputation for penning novels of dark poetry, where Lestat lives and breathes in all his benevolence. Pompous, preening, princely and beyond earthly reproach. For the uninitiated and experienced traveller alike this continuation of The Vampire Chronicles makes a mockery of any shared cinematic universe you can name.’ - Flickering Myth

Reviews

Reading a Lestat story is like meeting up with an old friend

Sci Fi Now

A fresh look at the legend of Atlantis… The story will keep fans gripped.

UK Press Syndication

Rice’s prose is, as one can expect, very well composed. It flows brilliantly… it’s rare that a scene is not vividly displayed on the page.
