Once again, as she did in Interview with the Vampire
, Anne Rice reveals the startling world of the undead. This world of dark pleasures and glorious decadence comes to life in a tale that takes you back 6,000 years to the shocking creation of the first vampire - Akasha, Queen of the Damned. Akasha's story unfolds across the ages and around the world - from dawn of civilization to the present day, from Egypt to the Himalayas, to Paris, Peru, and finally to California. There, Akasha faces her ancient, vengeful enemy, and the fate of all the living dead - and all the living as well - is decided.
Here is a tale hypnotically, chillingly told. You have to hear it to believe it!
The Queen of the Damned is Volume 3 of The Vampire Chronicles. For a full selection of Anne Rice programs and to hear the author answering fan mail, visit the Anne Rice store.
