This is the third book in author Anne Rice’s vampire series. It’s one of my favorites. She introduces many interesting vampire characters in this book. And, she traces the origin of vampires to its source – The Queen of the Damned.
The movie combines plot points from Rice’s second vampire book (The Vampire Lestat) and the third. It does so poorly, brushing hectically though important plot points. It’s not a good movie. So the book wins.
