    Anne Rice mastered the history of vampire genre decades before other authors dared to opposed her genre and intertwining stories of each vampire and the witches who were another series all together. I would say that very few authors else had really tackled this particular genre aside from Bram Bram Stoker's Dracula, which is only like the Lestat lost, both seeking redemption fighting for their lost humanity and the lust of what they are. that struggle to be a vampire end to miss humanity is prominent in all of the vampire chronicles. This particular book is exciting and wonderful response to the first book Interview with a bei have disappointed me in any way. she mastered the genre of vampire fantasy far before anyone else. is she made them likable horrific and romantic and each individual needed their own story and the stories laid out before them. I was so enthralled when this book it came out before the chronicles as it gave us the beginning of Lestat's character alive too "damned." Once started it's difficult to stop with each chronical asks and answers more.
