Anne Rice announced on Sunday through The Dinner Party Show (podcast) that she is reviving The Vampire Chronicles and gifting her rabid fans with a new vampire novel appropriately titled Prince Lestat. Rice fans have long awaited the return of Lestat and couldn’t be more thrilled as exhibited by the activity on Anne’s facebook page, which just soared past 1 million likes. Social media is abuzz with article links being posted everywhere from the NY Times to the humblest of blogs. It seems Lestat has indeed been resurrected once more.
You can pre-order Prince Lestat beginning this Saturday, March 15th. It will be released October 28th, 2014.
I’d also like to point out that word on the street is, there will be a coronation for Lestat at the annual Lestat Ball in New Orleans. It’s sure to be the event of the year. I’d exsanguinate each of our readers to get my claws on those tickets!
Look for our reviews by yours truly in the beginning of November! We’re already planning a give away befitting the occasion!
Anne we bow to you! We, your fans, could not be happier at the return of our dark prince. And fingers crossed for another book tour!
