The spellbinding classic that started it all from the #1 New York Times bestselling author

"A magnificent, compulsively readable thriller . . . Rice begins where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth-the education of the vampire."-Chicago Tribune

Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly sensual, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force-a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write.

page turner, literary fiction, gothic horror...More

What I loved most about this novel was it's rich detailed history and sense of timelessness. The weaving in and out of history was fascinating as was meeting a vampire in a modern day setting. The characters captured my imagination and stayed with me. The novel so affected me that I still have the original paperback I purchased back in college (circa late 1970's)

If you liked Interview with the Vampire, you may also like my book : BLOOD ENDING

My novel is the "Anti-Twilight". While I'm not comparing my work to Anne Rice, I think fans of hers would like the Hammer Horror film aspect to my novel. From 1852 through 2077 it follows the vampire characters through decades of change. At times sensual, other times horrific, the novel moves fast and compels the reader to find out what's going to happen next.
