Perennial vampire writer Anne Rice may have taken a brief break from writing about our favorite blood suckers to pen stories about Jesus or something, but thankfully almost a decade later she announced she’s returning to her beloved Lestat.
The newest novel, entitled The Prince Lestat will be available for purchase on October 28th, which really is the best Halloween present we could ask for.
Let’s just hope it’s as good as the first three novels and not as terrible as the later ones. Don’t even get me started on Memnoch the Devil because what even was that?
So what will the book even be about? Rice revealed that said tome serves as a sequel to the original five books in the series and is mostly “about Lestat and the other vampires… and what they are doing right now.”
Suffice it to say everyone is back (including the Talamasca but maybe not the witches) and they want the Brat Prince as their group leader.
Anne also promised that there would be a sequel to The Prince Lestat — as this is the first in a new series — tentatively titled Blood Paradise.
