The Vampire Chronicles continue with a riveting, rich saga–part adventure, part fairy-tale–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.
I have read every book Anne has put out. I love her world of vampires and the opulence of their world. And of course who doesn’t love the Brat Prince himself?
In this telling of the Blood Communion and how he came to rule the undead and now is fighting for the entire vampire world, we find most of our favorite characters and we move from Europe to Louisiana with elegance and violence.
As much as I am a fan of her work, I’m rather over it. It feels different. Not as compelling as the first books. I really wasn’t interested in this one, but my husband loved it even though he commented it was really just a smash-up of all the others.
I don’t think I could give this one more than 3 stars and for the first time I did not pre-order the book but waited for it to come out at the library.
