Anne Rice announces new Vampire Chronicles book: Prince Lestat

lestatAlthough she declared that The Vampire Chronicles had come to an end with her 2003 novel Blood Canticle, Anne Rice has announced an eleventh book in the series: Prince Lestat.

The book is due out on October 28. “It’s all about Lestat and all about the vampires and what they’re doing right now, how they’re coming to terms with everything that’s happened to them and how Lestat is dealing with demands from all sides that he step forward and become the leader of the tribe” says Rice.

The Vampire Chronicles series began in 1976 with Rice’s novel Interview with the Vampire, one of the most influential works of modern horror fiction. The villain of the original novel, Lestat de Lioncourt was redeemed in its sequel The Vampire Lestat.
