SOON TO BE A MAJOR TV SHOW, FROM THE NETWORK BEHIND THE WALKING DEAD '[W]hen I found Rice's work I absolutely loved how she took that genre and (...) made [it] feel so contemporary and relevant' Sarah Pinborough, bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes '[Rice wrote] in the great tradition of the gothic' Ramsey Campbell, bestselling author of The Hungry Moon After a 15 year wait LESTAT is back in Anne Rice's long awaited new Vampire Chronicles novel. The vampire world is in crisis - their kind have been proliferating out of control and, thanks to technologies undreamed of in previous centuries, they can communicate as never before. Roused from their earth-bound slumber, ancient ones are in thrall to the Voice, which commands that they burn fledgling vampires in cities from Paris to Mumbai, Hong Kong to Kyoto and San Francisco. Immolations, huge massacres, have commenced all over the world. Who - or what - is the Voice? What does it desire, and why? There is only one vampire, only one blood drinker, truly known to the entire world of the Undead. Will the dazzling hero-wanderer, the dangerous rebel-outlaw Lestat heed the call to unite the Children of Darkness as they face this new twilight? Anne Rice's epic, luxuriant, fiercely ambitious new novel brings together all the worlds and beings of the legendary Vampire Chronicles, from present-day New York and Ancient Egypt to fourth-century Carthage and Renaissance Venice; from Louis de Pointe du Lac; Armand the eternally young; Mekare and Maharet; to Pandora and Flavius; David Talbot, vampire and ultimate fixer from the Secret Talamasca; and Marius, the true child of the Millennia. It also introduces many other seductive supernatural creatures, and heralds significant new blood.

Rice is a superb storyteller with a fabulously rich imagination, and such ringing authority of tone that youll believe vampires really exist. -- Kate Saunders * The Times * Few contemporary American or British novelists have had as much cultural impact over the past four decades as Anne Rice * Washington Post * Rice is a charismatic and passionate storyteller -- Alexandra Heminsley * Indepenent on Sunday * Anne is back with a bang * Sun * Sappy, vegetarian Edward Cullen lacks teeth compared to Rice's dastardly Lestat. Put it this way: Meyer is vampire-lite; Rice serves up no-holds barred in delicious, full-fat glory -- Susan Swarbrick * The Herald *
