The Tale of the Body Thief

The Tale of the Body Thief Review

In a gripping feat of storytelling, Anne Rice continues the extraordinary Vampire Chronicles that began with the now-classic Interview with the Vampire. For centuries, Lestat—vampire-hero, enchanter, seducer of mortals—has been a courted prince in the dark and flourishing universe of the living dead. Now he is alone. And in his overwhelming need to destroy his doubts and his loneliness, Lestat embarks on the most dangerous enterprise he has undertaken in all the years of his haunted existence.

    Some Testimonial About This Book:

  • Frank

    • I thought that this is by far Anne Rice’s best description of Lestat’s true character. Everything he did in this book was exactly what I would expect someone who is supposed to be so selfish a...

    3.5 stars. Another solid chapter in one of the most iconic vampire series of all time. It is amazing that even after all this time (and the endless series of vampire novels) that this series still shi...

    I enjoyed Tale of the Body Thief more than any other installment of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles up to this point in the series. Unlike all of her other vampire novels, Rice doesn't spend half the b...

    The Tale of the Body Thief is the 4th book in the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. And it is by far the best one. Lestat is being followed. Everywhere he goes he senses that someone is watching him. H...

    It is official: this is the book that made me an unwavering fan of Lestat. While the previous Vampire Chronicle, Queen of the Damned features an array of characters and scenarios, there wasn’t as mu...
