Blood Communion The Vampire Chronicles continue with a riveting, rich saga part adventure, part suspense of Prince Lestat and the story of the Blood Communion as he tells the tale of his coming to rule the vampire world and the eternal struggle to find belonging, a place in the universe for the undead, and how, against his will, he must battle the menacing, seemingly unstoppable force determined to thwart his vision and destroy the entire vampire netherworld In this spellbinding novel, Lestat, rebel outlaw, addresses the tribe of vampires, directly, intimately, and passionately, telling the mesmerizing story of the formation of the Blood Communion and how he became prince of the vampire world, the true ruler of this vast realm, and how his vision for all the Children of the Universe to thrive as one came to be The story spills from Lestat s heart, as he speaks first of his new existence as reigning monarch and then of his fierce battle of wits and words with the mysterious Rhoshamandes, proud Child of the Millennia, reviled outcast for his senseless slaughter of the legendary ancient vampire Maharet, avowed enemy of Queen Akasha As the tale unfolds, Lestat takes us from the towers and battlements of his ancestral castle in the snow covered mountains of France to the verdant wilds of lush Louisiana with its lingering fragrances of magnolias and night jasmine from the far reaches of the Pacific s untouched islands to the 18th century city of St Petersburg and the court of the Empress Catherine Ultimately, Lestat will have to determine how to deal with Rhoshamandes, who refuses to live in harmony at court and threatens all Lestat has dreamt of.

  9. 2.5 starsIt was better than Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis but it still wasn t good I genuinely hope that this is the last book in the chronicles because Anne has clearly run out of ideas, and it s time that she just quits, you can t continue forever you knowThis book basically has the same plot as Prince Lestat and also Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis There is a threat and Lestat and his endless group of people in the court have to find a solution Every complaint I had 2.5 starsIt was better than Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis but it still wasn t good I genuinely hope that this is the last book in the chronicles because Anne has clearly run out of ideas, and it s time that she just quits, you can t continue forever you knowThis book basically has the same plot as Prince Lestat and also Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis There is a threat and Lestat and his endless group of people in the court have to find a solution Every complaint I had with the previous book still stands, the books never will go back to that amazing Gothic writing that the first books had, now Rice opts for endless discriptions of clothing and what people look like, this time pair...

I used to love these books when I was younger but nowadays it seems to grate on me I was hoping that a new one would bring back the love I once had for this series It didn t quite do that It s a classic Anne Rice style, if you ve read one book you know the writing style and it s easy to follow It s Lestat so easy to enjoy be invested in the character There are plenty of other known names from the past too I think if you love these books you ll enjoy it but I think what I want from a I used to love these books when I was younger but nowadays it seems to grate on me I was hoping that a new one would bring back the love I once had for this series It didn t quite do that It s a classic Anne Rice style, if you ve read one book you know the writing style and it s easy to follow It s Lestat so easy to enjoy be inv...

  14. Oh my god.I ve never written a review for any of the books in the Vampire Chronicles before because I love this series so much that I find it hard to put into words exactly what I m thinking when I finish each new book.But OH MY GOD.This book,than any of the last four or five books in this series, made me feel SO MANY THINGS It was brutally violent, it was shocking, it was fast paced, it was emotional, and I was 100% along for the ride.I do agree with a lot of the other reviewers who are Oh my god.I ve never written a review for any of the books in the Vampire Chronicles before because I love this series so much that I find it hard to put into words exactly what I m thinking when I finish each new book.But OH MY GOD.This book,than any of the last four or five books in this series, made me feel SO MANY THINGS It was brutally violent, it was shocking, it was fast paced, it was emotional, and I was 100% along for the ride.I do agree with a lot of the other reviewers who are saying that the first two or so chapters of Blood Communion are basically unnecessary, but then again I ve always thought of the beginnings of Interview with the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat as the best I ve ever read so I wasn t really expecting to be blown out of the water Also, there WERE a lot of characters in this book, but I didn t have too hard of a time keeping track of them since Anne was pretty good better than most at keeping tabs on where everyone was at all times The last two books had chara...
