Queen of the Damned: The Vampire Chronicles (Book 3)

Description: Once again, as she did in Interview with the Vampire, Anne Rice reveals the startling world of the undead. This world of dark pleasures and glorious decadence comes to life in a tale that takes you back 6,000 years to the shocking creation of the first vampire - Akasha, Queen of the Damned. Akasha's story unfolds across the ages and around the world - from dawn of civilization to the present day, from Egypt to the Himalayas, to Paris, Peru, and finally to California. There, Akasha faces her ancient, vengeful enemy, and the fate of all the living dead - and all the living as well - is decided.

The Vampire Lestat [Unabridged]

Description: More of The Vampire Chronicles - where dark pleasures and glorious decadence abound. Anne Rice once again creates the hypnotic, mythical world of the undead. Here is the story of the dazzling and seductive vampire Lestat, whom we first perceive as evil incarnate. We travel with Lestat from the licentious Paris of the 18th century to the pagan courts of ancient Egypt to the frenzied 20th century world of rock superstardom, as he elusively searches for the roots and meaning of his own immortality. As he does so, our sympathy is more and more engaged and we come to recognize that he is, in fact, a questing romantic, a vampire hero - with his own strange and passionate sense of courage and morality.

The Vampire Lestat is Volume 2 of The Vampire Chronicles.

Blood and Gold: The Vampire Marius (Book 8)

Description: The Vampire Chronicles continue with Anne Rice's spellbinding new novel, in which the great vampire Marius returns. The golden-haired Marius, true child of the millennia, once mentor to the vampire Lestat, always and forever the conscientious foe of the evil doer, reveals in his own intense yet intimate voice the secrets of his 2,000-year existence.

Once a proud Senator in imperial Rome, kidnapped and made a "blood god" by the Druids, Marius becomes the embittered protector of Akasha and Enkil, Queen and King of the vampires, in whom the core of the supernatural race resides. We follow him through his heartbreaking abandonment of the vampire Pandora. Through him we see the fall of pagan Rome to the Emperor Constantine and the horrific sack of the Eternal City itself at the hands of the Visigoths. Bravely, Marius seeks a new civilization in the midst of glittering Constantinople, only to meet with the blood drinker Eudoxia. We see him ultimately returning to his beloved Italy, where after the horrors of the Black Death he is restored by the beauty of the Renaissance. We see him become a painter living dangerously yet happily among mortals, giving his heart to the great Botticelli, to the bewitching courtesan Bianca, and to the mysterious young apprentice Armand.

Moving from Rome to Florence, Venice, and Dresden, and to the English castle of the secret scholarly order of the Talamasca, the novel reaches its dramatic finale in our own time, deep in the jungle where Marius, having told his life story, seeks some measure of justice from the oldest vampires in the world.
