The hypnotic, deeply seductive novels of Anne Rice have captivated millions of fans around the world. It all began a quarter of a century ago with Interview with the Vampire. Now, in one chilling volume, here are the first three classic novels of The Vampire Chronicles.**

Witness the confessions of a vampire. A novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force, it is a story of danger and flight, love and loss, suspense and resolution, and the extraordinary power of the senses.

“A magnificent, compulsively readable thriller . . . Anne Rice begins where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth–the education of the vampire.”
Chicago Tribune

Once an aristocrat from pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the decadent 1980s, Lestat rushes through the centuries seeking to fathom the mystery of his existence. His is a mesmerizing story–passionate and thrilling.

**“Frightening, sensual . . . A psychological, mythological sojourn . . . 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.”
–San Francisco Chronicle

Akasha, the queen of the damned, has risen from a six-thousand-year sleep to let loose the powers of the night. She has a marvelously devious plan to “save” mankind–in this vivid novel of the erotic, electrifying world of the undead.

“With The Queen of the Damned, Anne Rice has created universes within universes, traveling back in time as far as ancient, pre-pyramidic Egypt and journeying from the frozen mountain peaks of Nepal to the crowded, sweating streets of southern Florida.”
Los Angeles Times

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best vampire books by far I absolutely love most books by Anne Rice. She was the pioneer of this genre, deriving influence from Victorian gothic literature. This series is probably written for a slightly more mature audience than most 21st century vampire sagas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Original Vampire Series So happy I had these to read as a teen and not the current vampire crap. Between Anne Rice and Buffy, I had quality vampire entertainment as a kid. Did I just turn into a cranky old person? Oh dear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cult classic, must read! What true vampires ought to be like! If you've watched the movie you have got to read the books, so much more real and captivating. Lestat's constant search for understanding what it means to be good or bad and other such philosophical ideas really sticks with you and often has me questioning the same things. Not only do you get an amazing story this series really makes you think through interesting philosophical questions.
