Phaedra Romani, a 300 year old vampire hunting in New York City, has a vivid and disturbing dream one day when she lays down to rest.
She’s walking through a cemetery in this dream, holding hands with a dark haired vampire with bright green eyes—a vampire she knows is Louis from the famous Vampire Chronicles. They walk through the graveyard together, and as they move through it, the dead rise from their graves, grabbing and clawing at the pair. Some of these dead are vampires, vampires that were killed by Akasha or went into the fire. Some of the dead are the risen victims of the vampires, angry about how their lives were taken. A fence surrounding the cemetery has an inscription on it, which Phaedra reads. It works like a spell, causing the zombie-like creatures to disappear.
When she wakes up that night, Phaedra knows something is very wrong. But Phaedra doesn’t know Louis, aside from what is said of him in the Chronicles, and has never met him. The dream bothers her. It won’t leave her alone.
Phaedra goes to New Orleans to seek Louis out and tell him about what happens every day when she sleeps. There, she also meets Lestat (among others), and the vampires discover that those they thought were dead—others of their kind, killed or dead of their own will—are alive again. And Mekare, who now holds all the power of their species, is nowhere to be found.

im not sure this is going through
but ok i love anne rices works and am reading the vampire chronicles it took me 9 hours to start and read the latest one menoch the devil which is 1.244 pages a min i was that into it but it was simply one of the best books i had ever read and the story of creation presented to lestat is one that im willing to accept as what really happen and is the only thing in this world that has made me rethink my disbelief in god but even if i do start to believe in him after thinking about this ( since this was a novel i would need to encounter somthing like shown in the book such as a spirit soul vampire whatever in opder to beleive it completly) ill still hate him and not trust him as always ill just now believe hes really there but eh im not going to be here long so eh if you would like to talk to me about the books or religion or whatever do so soon

Well, I'm new... so here we go....
I've read all the Vampire Chronicles..... none of the Mayfair witches though, although I plan too. I'd also like to read the Sleeping Beauty series but I can't seem to find any of the books in my area. So I suppose that will have to wait. I simply love Rice's style of writing, her descripiton of her characters, I could go on and on, but I will save you all from that torment.
By the way, I am slightly upset that Blood Canticle is supposed to be her last book for the VC's. I feel as if she left quite a few questions unanswered, but who knows... maybe that's just me.

I absolutely love Anne Rice. I've fallen in love with The Vampire Chronicles. As of now, I've read Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, and I'm in the middle of Queen of the Damned. Not much I know, but I really don't have much time to read them.
Every book I read, I have a different favorite character, but the ones I particularly like are: Santiago, Marius, and Khayman.
That's....really all I have to say. >_>;;

I found somethingr of "Blood canticle",Anne Rice make Lestat talk to his faithful fans. I´ve copied for you...
"Now to those of you, who worship me. You know, the millions.
You say you want to hear from me. You leave yellow roses at my gate in New Orleans, with handwritten notes: "Lestat, speak to us again. Give us a new book. (...) We love the VC (...) Lestat, please come back!"
But I ask you, my beloved followers (don't all stumble over yourselves now to answer), what the Hell happened, when I gave you “Memnoch the Devil”? Hmmm? That was the last of the Vampire Chronicles written in my own words.
Oh, you bought the book, I’m not complaining about that, my beloved readers. Point of fact, “Memnoch” has outsold the other Vampire Chronicles completely, how is that for a vulgar detail? But did you embrace it? Did you understand it? Did you read it twice? Did you believe it?
I’d been to the Court of God Almighty and to the howling depths of Perdition, boys and girls, and I trusted you with my confessions, down to the last quiver of confusion an misery, prevailing on you to understand for me why I’d fled this terrifying opportunity to really become a saint, and what did you do? You complained!
“Where was the Vampire Lestat?” That’s what you wanted to know. Where was Lestat in his snappy black frock coat, flashing his tiny fang teeth as he smiles, striding in English boots through the glossy underworld of everybody’s sinister and stylish city packed with writhing human victims, the majority of whom deserve the vampiric kiss? That’s what you talked about!
Where was Lestat the insatiable blood thief and soul smasher; Lestat the vengeful, Lestat the sly, Lestat the… well, actually… Lestat, the Magnificient.
Yeah, I like that: Lestat, the Magnificient. That sound like a good name for this book. And I am, when you get right down to it, magnificient. I mean, nobody has to say it. But let’s go back to your song and dance over Memnoch.
We don’t want this shattered remnant of a shaman! you said. We want our hero. Where’s his classic Harley? Let kick him start and roar through the French Quarters streets and alleys. Let him sing in the wind to the music pumping through his tiny earphones, purple shades down. blond hair blowing free.
Well, cool, yeah, I like that image. Sure. I still have my motorcycle. And yeah, I adore frock coats. I have them made; you’re not going to get arguments from me on that. And the boots, always. Want to know, what I’m wearing now?
I’m not going to tell you!
Well, not until further on.
But think it over, what I am trying to say.
I give you this metaphysical vision of Creation and Eternity here, the whole history (more or less) of Christianity, and meditations galore on the Cosmos Big Time – and what thanks do I get? “What kind of novel is this?” you asked. “We didn’t tell you to go to Heaven and Hell! We want you to be the fancy fiend!”
Mon Dieu! You make me miserable! You really do, I want you to know that. Much as I do love you, much as I need you, much as I can’t exist without you, you make me miserable! "
I wasn't too interested in the book, but after reading this, it had me laughing hysterically! If the whole book is like this then I should love it.
After reading it three times, the one things that sticks out is...
What is Lestat wearing?

Blood Canticle Summary
Word from the Publisher:
Anne Rice continues her astonishing Vampire Chronicles in a new novel that begins where Blackwood Farm left off — and tells the story of Lestat’s quest for redemption, goodness, and the love of Rowan Mayfair.
Welcome back to Blackwood Farm. Here are all of the brilliantly conceived characters that make up the two worlds of vampires and witches: Mona Mayfair, who’s come to the farm to die and is brought into the realm of the undead; her uncle, Julian Mayfair, guardian of the family, determined to forever torment Lestat for what he has done to Mona; Rowan Mayfair, brilliant neurosurgeon and witch, who finds herself dangerously drawn to the all-powerful Lestat; her husband, Michael Curry, hero of the Mayfair Chronicles, who seeks Lestat’s help with the temporary madness of his wife; Ash Templeton, a 5,000-year-old Taltos who has taken Mona’s child; and Patsy, the country-western singer, who returns to avenge her death at the hands of her son, Quinn Blackwood. Delightfully, at the book’s centre is the Vampire Lestat, once the epitome of evil, now pursuing the transformation set in motion with Memnoch the Devil. He struggles with his vampirism and yearns for goodness, purity and love, as he saves Patsy’s ghost from the dark realm of the Earthbound, uncovers the mystery of the Taltos and unselfishly decides the fate of his beloved Rowan Mayfair.
A story of love and loyalty, of the search for passion and promise, Blood Canticle is Anne Rice at her finest.

Phone Message Transcript: May 9th, 2003
[appearing on Anne's fan phone line, (504) 522-8634]
"Children of the night and day, this is Anne Rice. I am talking to you from New Orleans, obviously, and it is a beautiful evening here. There are no vampires, because it's not dark yet. It's lovely...oh my gosh. All the spring plants are coming out, there are flowers everywhere in my garden, and I can see them from my glass porch up here. I can see the magnolia trees that I've planted, and they are wonderful and strong. There's nothing quite like planting a tree. It's quite incredible. You think about it, and you put it off and put it off, and then you do it. Then ten years pass, and you've got this enormous wonderful magnolia tree; and you just thank God that you were able to do it, and that it worked, and that somehow you made time for it, and you did it over everybody's objections. Although, I don't remember everybody objecting to it. Certainly, not Stan, he never objected.
I'm looking down at the swimming pool in which Michael Curry half-drowned in THE WITCHING HOUR, and I'm thinking so many things. But what I really want to tell you about this evening, after I thank you for your wonderful messages; which have indeed sustained me through every day and every hour, and continue to do so, is that Elton John and Bernie Taupin, his lyricist, are going to make a wonderful Broadway production of the three Vampire Chronicles: INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE, THE VAMPIRE LESTAT, and QUEEN OF THE DAMNED. Maybe you saw this on the news already. It was all over the news yesterday and has already surfaced on the Web. I was so excited about it.
Elton John and Bernie Taupin and Linda Woolverton, the person who is doing the story for the Broadway production, and Robert Roth, the director, and Gregg Maday, the producer from Warner Brothers. They all had a press conference at The Hit Factory, in New York, and they talked very exuberantly, apparently, about the production that they are going to do. I have seen an outline of the play, and it's just incredible. More significantly, I've heard the first four songs that Elton John has composed, with Bernie Taupin's lyrics, and they are absolutely marvelous. I've heard them on a CD that Elton John sent me, and he was performing them, and they were so heartfelt and they were so totally right to the deepest metaphorical message of the novels. They were right to the heart of what the vampire Lestat was and what the darkness in the books was all about. The deepest most important aims of the book were captured in these songs. They were wonderful. I had an opportunity to talk to Elton John, personally, and Rob Roth, the director, and I'm just thrilled about the whole thing.
I met Elton John and Bernie Taupin about twelve years ago, when they were thinking about doing this; but it just didn't work out at that time. Now, it's working out splendidly, and they are really on their way. Elton John is going to write the rest of the music. He'll have it done by the end of September, probably, and the play will have it's first reading; which is a very important step, in November of this year. I guess it will be on stage in 2005. I think they've chosen the name "The Vampire Lestat". All of this information, by the way, is on Elton John's website, and naturally I don't know the name of it, since I don't go on the Internet myself. But I'm sure you can find it. If you just punch in "Elton John" you're bound to come up with it, if you want to know about it. I wholeheartedly recommend this whole endeavor. Of course, it will be 2005 before it happens; and I don't have all the details. The story they've come up with is so true to the books. It's so true to the spirit of the books and to the characters. It's a marvelous adaptation.
I'm telling you guys, when it rains it pours. I mean, the cliche is really true. Because right now, John Wilder, out in Hollywood, is finished his screenplay for "The Witching Hour". It's the first go at the 12 hour adaptation and it's a miracle, and a wonderfully polished miracle, at that. It's already gone to NBC for the television miniseries. It's THE WITCHING HOUR, LASHER, and TALTOS. All of this is happening at the same time, and I'm here working on the galleys of BLOOD CANTICLE; the last book in which Lestat will speak, I think. I really do think it's the last one. It's about the Mayfair witches. Michael Curry and Rowan Mayfair are very prominent in it, and it's in Lestat's voice. He's talking, he's driving, I'm with him again; and all this happening and it's just so intense and wonderful.
I've got to draw back, and I've got to write a book. Summer is usually a good time for me to write a book. It always works for me. So, that's what's going to happen. But, I had to tell you about this musical. It was just wonderful news and I am very excited about it. Everybody here is. I also got to tell you about "The Witching Hour", the miniseries, because these screenplays have gone to the big guys at NBC, and we're all hoping for the best outcome on that. I feel so grateful that all of this is happening. I only wish Stan was here to see all of this. Maybe Stan is seeing it all and maybe he's happy about it, too. God love you, God bless you. Those of you who are writing, keep writing and don't let anything stop you. If you're dancing - dance, if you're acting - act, and if you're singing - sing. I love you very much. Leave me a message. Bye bye."
