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. Immolation, 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.

EXPECTATIONS: The first line of Blurb I cannot deal, it sounds like some horribly bad Hollywood action movie :DDDDD Also I was really debating if I hate myself enough to go on with the series but then I decided that you know what, I went to far I might just finish it all. 

THE WORLD: Okay so it's basically our vampires discovering technology, I find it beyond ridiculous that so sophisticated and educated old creatures cannot handle emails apparently. Just, I mean are you kidding me? This trope is so so overdone and is just plain stupid. Also the whinny annoying Lestat is now a leader aka a prince :D 

CHARACTERS: You all probably know by know that when it comes to Lestat I went all the way from very much love to pure hatred in last ten years or so. I just cannot deal how much I hate him, he is pretty much everything I hate about a person and if I had an honer of killing him I bet I would end up doing us all a favor. Just hate that whinny brat so so much! Anyways so in this book there is THE Voice which is pretty much telling the vampires to go kill themselves. Sounds familiar? Yeah I thought so, like if you write a book after 15 years of a break on the series, can we please not copy the most overused plot ever? Just ah I am so pissed. I do not care about about any of the character in this book to discuss them. Let me just say that none of them are interesting or worth even remembering. 

ROMANCE: Lestat is in love with Lestat. What else is new?

GOOD: I cannot really think of anything to be honest. 

BAD: Why was this book written in the first place? Were 12 other books not enough already?

OVERALL: Okay 13 books down one more to go, wish me luck. 

What do you think about PRINCE LESTAT?
