From Anne Rice, conjurer of the beloved best sellers Interview with the Vampire and Prince Lestat , an ambitious and exhilarating new novel of utopian vision and power

"In my dreams, I saw a city fall into the sea. I heard the cries of thousands. I saw flames that outshone the lamps of heaven. And all the world was shaken . . ." --Anne Rice, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis

At the novel's center: the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, hero, leader, inspirer, irresistible force, irrepressible spirit, battling (and ultimately reconciling with) a strange otherworldly form that has somehow taken possession of Lestat's undead body and soul. This ancient and mysterious power and unearthly spirit of vampire lore has all the force, history, and insidious reach of the unknowable Universe.

It is through this spirit, previously considered benign for thousands of vampire years and throughout the Vampire Chronicles, that we come to be told the hypnotic tale of a great sea power of ancient × a mysterious heaven on earth situated on a boundless continent--and of how and why, and in what manner and with what far-reaching purpose, this force came to build and rule the great legendary empire of centuries ago that thrived in the Atlantic Ocean.

And as we learn of the mighty, far-reaching powers and perfections of this lost kingdom of Atalantaya, the lost realms of Atlantis, we come to understand its secrets, and how and why the vampire Lestat, indeed all the vampires, must reckon so many millennia later with the terrifying force of this ageless, all-powerful Atalantaya spirit.

Vampires and aliens! Ugh! Anne Rice has officially run out of ideas for this series.
The Vampire Chronicles: born - 1976, died - 2016. R.I.P.

This piece had everything I loved about Anne in the early 90's and even felt nostalgic for those younger, more naive days. I had oxymoronic fantasies back then of wanting to die half the time or be immortal the other half. If I had known then I was going to make it to the wrong side of 40 and be doing cardio, core, power, sculpt yoga to boot, I would have taken much better care of myself. I mean a few extra laps and less of the St. Joe Speedballs (methamphetamine and methadone) wouldn't have hurt. Yes, Anne Rice has made Lestat great again and she probably just had to shake the cobwebs off after her Christian phase. I'm just grateful her and Dylan made it back from the Lord and I lived long enough to still enjoy them both.

Lestat and company brood, talk about love and deal with some organic humanoid robots from a planet of advanced birds.
