Quotes & Awards

  • “Brilliant…Its undead characters are utterly alive.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Fiercely ambitious, nothing less than a complete unnatural history of vampires.”

    The Village Voice

  • “The vampire Lestat has proved to be the foundation for a broader range of narratives than is possible from Louis’s brooding, passive perspective. [This is a] novel to a grand tradition of spiritual and supernatural fiction.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “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

  • “Luxuriantly created and richly told.”

    Cleveland Plain Dealer

  • “Rice continues what promises to be a series with this fascinating sequel to her Interview with the Vampire…This extraordinary book outclasses most contemporary horror fiction and is a novel to be savored.”

    Library Journal, editorial review

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Dawn | 2/8/2014

    " Also read The Body Thief. I had never read these books and enjoyed the adventure. Queen of the Damned was dense and a lot of expostion, almost a treatise on men have ruined civilization and women have to fix it by getting rid of them. But that would not work would it. What an iron maiden the queen is and the king... well read the book. "

    " Didn't everyone read these in college and secretly want to become vampires? Ok, maybe it was just me and my band of merry dorks but these are the best of Anne Rice's vampire writings. After Queen of the Damned she went downhill awfully fast. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Natasha Venter van niekerk | 2/1/2014

    " Absolutely brilliant. Rice did Vampiric myth absolute justice in writing these chronicles. Second best Vampiric author after Bram Stoker! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nellie | 1/30/2014

    " If you like trashy vampire novels, this is the series to get. Psychologically thrilling and way better narrative than Twilight. "
