The legendary bestselling author of Interview with the Vampire visits with her new novel—a triumphant return of the Vampire Chronicles, the series that made her famous almost four decades ago. Joining her is her son, New York Times bestseller Christopher Rice, who presents his two new novels—a ghost story that takes place on a haunted New Orleans plantation, and a supernatural erotic romance.
Prince Lestat opens with the vampire world in crisis. Vampires have been proliferating out of control and huge massacres have commenced all over the world. Old vampires, roused from slumber, are doing the bidding of a Voice commanding that they indiscriminately burn young vampires. As the novel moves from the present-day to ancient Egypt, fourth century Carthage, 14th-century Rome, the Venice of the Renaissance, the worlds and beings of all the Vampire Chronicles — Louis de Pointe du Lac; the eternally young Armand; Mekare and Maharet, Pandora and Flavius; David Talbot, and Marius — come together to seek out who — or what — the Voice is, and to discover the secret of what it desires and why. And, at the book's center, the seemingly absent, curiously missing hero-wanderer, the dazzling, dangerous rebel-outlaw — the great hope of the Undead, the dazzling Prince Lestat.
New York Times bestseller Christopher Rice presents The Vines, the dark history of Spring House, a beautifully restored plantation mansion on the outskirts of New Orleans, has long been forgotten. But something sinister lurks beneath the soil of the old estate. After heiress and current owner Caitlin Chaisson is witness to her husband's stunning betrayal at her own birthday party, she tries to take her own life in the mansion's gazebo. Instead, the blood she spills awakens dark forces in the ground below. By morning, her husband has vanished without a trace and his mistress has gone mad. Nova, daughter to Spring House's groundskeeper, has always suspected that something malevolent haunts the old place, and in the aftermath of the birthday party she enlists Caitlin's estranged best friend, Blake, to help her get to the bottom of it. The pair soon realizes that the vengeance enacted by this sinister and otherworldly force comes at a terrible price.
