Waiting On Wednesday [68]: Prince Lestat by Anne Rice

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post started by Breaking the Spine. A feature showcasing upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated.

I'm so excited for this title. I've been waiting (like many, I'm sure) since 2003
for another Vampire Chronicles boo5. *squee*

Title: Prince Lestat
Series: The Vampire Chronicles
Author: Anna Rice
Release Date: October 28, 2014

Book Description:

The novel opens with the vampire world in crisis…vampires have been proliferating out of control; burnings have commenced all over the world, huge massacres similar to those carried out by Akasha in The Queen of the Damned…Old vampires, roused from slumber in the earth are doing the bidding of a Voice commanding that they indiscriminately burn vampire-mavericks in cities from Paris and Mumbai to Hong Kong, Kyoto, and San Francisco.

As the novel moves from present-day New York and the West Coast to ancient Egypt, fourth century Carthage, 14th-century Rome, the Venice of the Renaissance, the worlds and beings of all the Vampire Chronicles-Louis de Pointe du Lac; the eternally young Armand, whose face is that of a Boticelli angel; Mekare and Maharet, Pandora and Flavius; David Talbot, vampire and ultimate fixer from the secret Talamasca; and Marius, the true Child of the Millennia; along with all the other new seductive, supernatural creatures-come together in this large, luxuriant, fiercely ambitious novel to ultimately rise up and seek out who-or what-the Voice is, and to discover the secret of what it desires and why…

And, at the book's center, the seemingly absent, curiously missing hero-wanderer, the dazzling, dangerous rebel-outlaw--the great hope of the Undead, the dazzling Prince Lestat…

  1. Haven't heard of the vampire chronicles but I do want to get back into super-natural books.
    My WoW

  2. I never read any of her books (though I enjoyed the movie adaptations), so perhaps now that she's adding to the collection I have a reason to go back and finally check them out! Cool pick!!

    Here's My WoW.

  3. I actually picked this one two weeks ago as my WOW. Interesting. Great pick.
