The Queen of the Damned
(1988)

Anne Rice had much more vampire mythology that she wanted to explain in The Vampire Lestat, but she ran out of room. So she typed ‘‘The Vampire Chronicles WILL CONTINUE’’ at the end of the book and then returned in 1988 with The Queen of the Damned, once more featuring Lestat the vampire. The end of The Vampire Lestat shows all of the vampires that Lestat loves returning to him on a night when most of his enemy vampires die horribly in spontaneous combustion. The beginning of The Queen of the Damned steps back in time to tell the stories of Lestat’s friends and supporters—Armand, Daniel, Gabrielle, Khayman, Marius, Pandora, and the human woman Jesse—journeying to him while having horrifying dreams of red-haired twin witches being tortured and maimed. When the friends finally gather at Lestat’s concert, they are all reunited briefly, but shortly after that, Lestat is taken by Akasha, the Great Mother of all the vampires. While Lestat encounters wonders and horrors in his travels with Akasha, the others learn from Maharet, one of the twins, the ancient myth that explains the origin of the vampires. A composite of many stories, The Queen of the Damned finishes Rice’s vampire mythology by tying all story threads together in one great showdown between good and evil.
