      Of all of the vampire chronicles this is by far my favorite. If you have seen the movie and were not impressed. It's ok because neither was I. The movie is nothing like the book in any way. The book goes into detail and answers a lot questions. Goes into detail of the family tree and tells you how Akasha and Enkil became to be. I love every single part of this book and it really was a page turner for me. I love everything from the twins, to Armand and Daniel. Everything! All of these characters [...]

      I read a lot of Anne Rice in the 80s, both her Vampire Chronicles and her Mayfair Witches series. I always find her very readable and there is always some dark beauty in her prose. However, like most series the quality tend to drop off after three or four volumes, the authors either begin to repeat themselves or try something radically different or experimental which does not work. As far as The Vampire Chronicles is concerned I think Ms. Rice has done a bit of both, and I lost interest after th [...]

      This was the book that pretty much killed my desire to read anything more by Rice. Only 3 books into the Chronicles and I was already weary of her style. As it was, the book was so dull that it took me ages to finish it. I despised a great deal of the new characters and their stories, but as usual, I enjoyed the history (particularly Egypt) where certain stories took place. I could not stand the inclusion of the whole Talamasca thing and found myself rolling my eyes whenever that mess came into [...]

      The Queen of the Damned is the third book of the successful "Vampire Chronicles" saga by the author Anne Rice. For me, it's a novel that is impossible to understand without reading "Lestat, the vampire". In this chapter, Rice immerses you in the bowels of the origin of vampires and the myths and legends of the ancient Egypt. Akasha is The Queen of the Damned, an exotic, dangerous and trapped in a remote time character. Rice guides us in a world of strong contrasts where darkness and evil mix in [...]

      This was the best one of them all. It fills in all the holes and makes for a fascinating read. The only character who didn't seem to fit in with the story was the Baby character who killed her mother and father. The only thing I could figure out was that she gave us Anne Rice's ideas of the afterlife. That you just go up into a wonderful loving place with all the people in your life even if you were a horrible person. The rest was sheer creativeness. That a vampire could be so ancient and comple [...]

      La reina de los condenados ha despertado finalmente, Akasha la madre de todos los vampiros ha dejado su letargo y tiene una misión en mente, acomodar todo el caótico mundo en el que vivimos, pero como los humanos que han tenido esa idea, y que padecen de un terrible exceso de soberbia, ella tiene una solución radical, extrema y simple, ¿de quién es la culpa de que el mundo esté tan mal? ¿Sera de los judíos? ¿Sera de los ricos? ¿Será de los inmigrantes? No, ya todo eso se ha dicho, par [...]

      I kept waiting for it to get interesting but it never did. It got stupider and stupider until I thought my brains were leaking out. If I were on a desert island with nothing to read but this book, I would scratch out old 80's pop lyrics with a twig in the sand before trying to read this dreck again.

      The Vampire Chronicles — Anne Rice’s seminal work — keeps getting better. While I was lukewarm on Interview With the Vampire (though my reading of its sequels has deepened my appreciation of that dark little novel), I quite enjoyed The Vampire Lestat and was blown away by The Queen of the Damned. This novel shows Rice getting a firm grip on her vampires; she juggles action and exposition (and angst — oh, the angst!) expertly here, never allowing the story’s pace to flag. Not once was I [...]

    9. Nicola on said:

      I like books. I like reading them, writing them, sleeping with every word I have ever read staring down at me in a legacy of comforting language. I have only ever in my life put down two books without finishing them, and throughout this whole torturous affair I had to continuously remind myself that I don't want that figure to reach three. In short, this was slow, painful and pointless, more of an elongated love affair with Rice's beloved Lestat than any honest attempt to, y'now, educate or ente [...]

      Prior to reading the Queen of the Damned I only knew a handful of things about it. I knew that everyone RAVED over the book. I knew that Aaliyah had been cast for the movie and died during the filiming of it. But mostly, being the metal junky that I am, I knew that the soundtrack was the bee’s knees featuring Korn, Static-X, Deftones, Disturbed, Lincoln Park and other awesome bands that rocked my world at the time the movie was coming out. I actually never watched the movie- being the purist t [...]

    11. Matthew Leeth on said:

      I really liked this book and all the interwoven stories and characters. I actually liked Akasha until she kept blabbing on and on about her 'plan' of killing all the men of the world. I can see why they killed her She should have just went along with them, maybe she would have lived longer. I liked Jesse a lot, her character was really interesting. The Claudia cameo was awesome, and the diary excerpt was cool. Kind of made me want Anne to write a full length Claudia diary. This book was a really [...]

    12. Jess The Bookworm on said:

      I am completely in love with this series. I love the way that Anne Rice weaves a tale, her writing is so hypnotic. This book continues from the events of the Vampire Lestat, which gave an introduction to Akasha, the Queen of the Damned, and her back story in ancient Egypt. This book takes the tale further and explains the supernatural origin of vampires as a species. The book stepped away from Lestat's point of view in the Vampire Lestat, and takes us through the minds of various vampires as the [...]

      5.0 stars. This is the book in which this phenomenal series reached its considerable peak. This is on my short list for best vampire novels. HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION!!Nominee: Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel (1989)Nominee: Locus Award for Best Horror Novel (1989)

    14. Crystal Starr Light on said:

      At the end of The Vampire Lestat, Lestat, narrowly escaping an attack at his opening concert in San Francisco, was getting read to sleep during the day when a figure hovers over him. This book picks up immediately - Lestat narrates what happens in the days that follows. To do this, he backs out and we get third person POV from some sideline characters - Baby Jinx, a young vampire girl who is on her way to Lestat's concert; Khayman, a thousands-year old vampire just awakened; Daniel, the young in [...]

      3 StarsReview:So, my review is once again… really long. I can’t help it! I have so many thoughts! I’m trying to at least divide these up as much as possible so that you all can choose which sections interest you and just read those if you don’t want to read the whole thing :-)Things I Disliked/Things I Didn’t Mind but Others Might Dislike:– A lot of the writing choices in this series are strange. For example, the book started off with Lestat breaking the fourth wall, explaining how h [...]

      this book has always been my all time favourite Anne rice out did herself with this one yes while it is a long read it is well worth it

      Lestat has rocked the vampire world with his music and his book revelations. But his voice has reached far more than he imagined – it has come to the ears of Akasha, the first vampire, the Queen of the Damned. For the first time in millennia, she has woken upAnd she has plans – plans for Lestat, plans for the world of vampires and plans for all humanity.It falls for a few ancient vampires to try and stop her as she unleashes carnage to realise her vision of what the world should be.This book [...]

    18. M.M. Strawberry Reviews on said:

      Ordinarily, for a book I enjoyed so much, I would give it five stars. The Legend of the Twins was actually my favorite story arc in Queen of the Damned, and the Twins are two of my favorite characters. Infact, I'd say that this book is my favorite in the entire Vampire Chronicles.But the reason I take away a star is due to the abrupt ending. It is clear that Akasha is deluded in her thinking, and that what she believes is good for mankind is not. But I wonder after 6000 years of sleep, she would [...]

    19. M.J. Heiser on said:

      If Ayn Rand had written her capitalist manifesto, "Atlas Shrugged," half this well, we'd have several second-world countries STILL trying to prove that she was a visionary, and that her system could work -- because never doubt that "The Queen of the Damned" is a philosophical screed, and the best of its kind.For me, this is still the ultimate vampire novel. Anne Rice doesn't just have creepy-crawlies in her stories. She doesn't just animate corpses. She doesn't just give them heartbroken souls a [...]

      In this book you go on an adventure with the vampire Lestat, while he is lost in finding the meaning of immortality. He wakes from a 200 year sleep to find the world he knew so much more develop from what it was. He finds a liking to rock music and from it creates the biggest rock band in history. in the music he is open about being a vampire, this goes against all codes from being a vampire and angers all others. This created a whole new meaning of Lestats life, and opens doors for the amazing [...]

    21. Daniel McGill on said:

      Much better then "Interview With the Vampire" This combined with "The Vampire Lestat" forms the best part of the Vampire Chronicles series and details the core mythos of Anne Rice’s vampires. In this book unlike the others in this series there are several narrators all with very interesting view points who each tell their own part of the story until the plot lines converge. If you intend to read any of Anne Rice’s Vampire novels (except possibly "Interview") make sure you read these first an [...]

      Oh how I love Lestat at the end of this book! He really is such a damnable creature. <3

    23. Audrie on said:

      Literally could not put this book down. It was my first experience with Anne Rice and I honestly wanted to jump on the bandwagon and read all of her works after this.It's really wonderful because, as it was my first experience with Rice, I was still able to follow it without reading the books that come before it in the series. It stands as its own individual piece and I really appreciated not having to hunt the others down before starting on this one (my mom bought it for me at a thrift store).F [...]

    24. Debra on said:

      After listening to The Vampire Lestat, which I enjoyed well enough, I couldn't very well stop there. I needed to know what happened to Lestat after his concert. So of course I picked up Queen of the Damned immediately after finishing that one.My god, there were a lot of characters in this novel. Thank god for a good narrator of this audiobook (the wonderful Simon Vance). He helped keep up with all the various characters with an impressive array of voices. The story itself was interesting, in tha [...]

    25. Emily on said:

      Queen of the Damned picks up where The Vampire Lestat leaves off, introduces us to new and interesting vampires, and deals with the question of what happens when the Queen wakes.The Legend of the Twins is entrancing, and Rice unfolds the origin of vampires in a definitive manner. More backstory is given on all the major players, but enough is left unsaid to provide fodder for many more Vampire Chronicles. Also interesting was the introduction of the Talamasca, and meeting Aaron Lightner for the [...]

      Tercera parte de las Crónicas Vampíricas. Agotada totalmente la creatividad, se suman vampiros y vísceras hasta llenar un montón de páginas innecesarias. Superflua.

    27. Sophie Elizabeth on said:

      (I warn you, this review contains spoilers, though it doesn't really ruin the storyline, I don't think!)The introduction to this book is, as in all the other books with Lestat as a narrator, fantastic. I love the way he always introduces himself, the vain bastard that he is. And of course (because I'm a sad little girl with no life who develops attractions for literary creatures) I hang on each line, wondering "Oh, what did you do THIS TIME?!" To be very honest, when I started the book, I wasn't [...]

      Este libro ha sido una jarra de agua fría con respecto a lo que realmente me esperaba de él. Había disfrutado mucho con el libro anterior "Lestat el vampiro" pero este me ha hecho que me plantee el seguir leyendo las crónicas vampíricas. Durante más de la mitad del libro vamos dando saltos en las historias de los personajes que aparecerán más adelante y en cómo ven el final del segundo libro. Parece una idea interesante, conocer un poco más acerca de los antiguos vampiros y qué opinan [...]

      Ansiosa, ansiosa, ansiosa. Era assim que me sentia quando comecei a ler A Rainha dos Condenados, com muitas expectativas depois da forma abrupta como O Vampiro Lestat acabava. O facto de já ter visto o filme mas de pouco me recordar intensificava ainda mais a minha ânsia de devorar a história.E que história. A Rainha dos Condenados é precisamente isso: história. Quatrocentas páginas de longa história. Ao início senti-me defraudada e desiludida, pois queria saber o que iria acontecer a L [...]

      In 1976, a uniquely seductive world of vampires was unveiled in the now-classic Interview with the Vampire . . . in 1985, a wild and voluptous voice spoke to us, telling the story of The Vampire Lestat.  In The Queen of the Damned, Anne Rice continues her extraordinary "Vampire Chronicles" in a feat of mesmeric storytelling, a chillingly hypnotic entertainment in which the oldest and most powerful forces of the night are unleashed on an unsuspecting world.Three brilliantly colored narrative th [...]
