Title: The Vampire Lestat
Author: Anne Rice
Published: Published October 1st 2002 by Ballantine Books (first published 1989)
Length: 481 Pages
Goodreads Summary: Lestat. The vampire hero of Anne Rice’s enthralling novel is a creature of the darkest and richest imagination. Once an aristocrat in the heady days of pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the demonic, shimmering 1980s, he rushes through the centuries in search of others like him, seeking answers to the mystery of his eternal, terrifying exsitence. His is a mesmerizing story—passionate, complex, and thrilling.
How I Got It: I bought it.
When I Got It: I honestly have no idea. It’s probably been over 5 years.
Why I Want To Read It: I absolutely love the Queen of The Damned movie, it’s one of my all time favorites. I have read the first book of the Vampire Chronicles but haven’t read any farther than that. I’m very interested to see the differences between the Lestat that I know from the movie and the Lestat that is bound to be different in the books.
**I own The Vampire Chronicles Collection which is the first three books-in-one (Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, and Queen of the Damned) cover shown below. This is one of my pet peeves so I hope to one day get individual copies of each of the books.**
Have you read this book or any of the Vampire Chronicles?
