AudioBook - Anne Rice - The Vampire Chronicles MP3[b33z][h33t]
The Vampire Chronicles is a series of novels by Anne Rice that revolves around the fictional character Lestat de Lioncourt, a French nobleman
made into a vampire in the 18th century. The chronicles have gained a large fanbase since the publication of the first volume in the 1970s.
Anne Rice's vampires are different in several ways from classic vampires like Dracula. Rice's creatures are not affected by the usual weapons
against classic vampires: garlic, crosses or silver, and they cannot be killed with wooden stakes.
They need blood, but not every night. Human blood is preferred as it is more nutritious, but animal blood is also used. They do not age
physically (instead becoming more 'statuesque' as they age), in all but a few cases, vampires younger than a thousand years old can usually
be killed by exposure to sunlight or fire.
They do not possess stereotypically 'vampiric' magical powers, such as changing into bats or casting spells, but some of the stronger, older
ones do have the power to fly. Most of them also have the power to read thoughts of mortals and weaker vampires. They have other physical
abilities: they can move very quickly (faster than human eyes can see), possess great strength and extremely keen senses. Very old vampires
or ones who have been made or strengthened by feeding on blood that is close to the root of the vampiric mother may have additional gifts
like the ability to move matter with the mind (Mind Gift) and the ability to set things ablaze by the force of will (Fire Gift). They have
many artistic talents, like singing, painting and acting.
The main characteristic of Rice's vampires is that they are all excessively emotional, sensitive, and sensual, being easy prey to intense
emotional suffering and aesthetic passions. They are usually very beautiful, as older vampires avoid making new ones out of old or ugly
They change physically after they become vampires; their eyes become luminous, their fingernails like glass, and their hair will grow back
overnight if cut. As they lose all bodily fluids, they are essentially rendered sexless.

Interview with the Vampire
A vampire novel by Anne Rice written in 1973 and published in 1976. The novel, the first to feature the enigmatic vampire anti-hero Lestat,
was followed by several sequels, collectively known as The Vampire Chronicles. Published in 1976, Interview with the Vampire quickly became a
cult success, and a major influence on present Goth culture. The novel was set apart from its predecessors of the vampire genre by its
confessional tone from the vampire's perspective, touching on existential despair and the sheer boredom of lifeless immortality. Interview
remains the best-selling and best-received of Rice's books.
The Vampire Lestat
The second book of The Vampire Chronicles, following Interview with the Vampire. Set in the late 18th Century to the late 1980s, the story
follows the 200 years long life of the vampire Lestat, and his rise from humble beginnings as a penniless aristocrat to become the 'Brat
Prince' of the vampires.
The Queen of the Damned
The third novel of The Vampire Chronicles. It follows Interview with the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat. This novel is a continuation of the
story that ends in a cliffhanger in The Vampire Lestat and explores the rich history and mythology of the origin of the vampires, which dates
back to Ancient Egypt.
The Tale of the Body Thief
The fourth novel of The Vampire Chronicles, following The Queen of the Damned. Published in 1992, it continues the adventures of Lestat,
specifically his efforts to regain his lost humanity. It is a contemporary novel set entirely in the late 20th century. This is a departure
for Anne Rice, who often takes readers into the past.

Memnoch the Devil
The fifth novel in The Vampire Chronicles series, following The Tale of the Body Thief. In this story, Lestat is approached by the Devil
himself and offered a job. After stalking and killing a ruthless but enthrallingly passionate mobster named Roger, Lestat is approached by
his ghost. At the same time, he is becoming increasingly paranoid that he's being followed by the Devil himself, and he is growing interested
in Roger's daughter Dora, a devout and popular television evangelist, who he wants to spare from embarrassment. Lestat and his companions try
to protect her 'church' from the fact that her father was a killer.
The Vampire Armand
Yhe sixth novel in The Vampire Chronicles series. With Lestat still in slumber after his adventures in Memnoch the Devil, the vampire coven
is united around the 'brat prince' (a nickname for Lestat given by the older Children of the Millennia), and the vampire David Talbot takes
the opportunity to request that Armand tell David his life story. Armand, who first appeared in Interview with the Vampire, agrees to tell
The seventh book in The Vampire Chronicles series. This book brings together Rice's vampires and the Mayfair Witches. We again meet Louis,
Lestat, and David. They are followed by the beautiful witch Merrick Mayfair, an offshoot of the Mayfair clan, who knew David when he was a
mortal man working as a member of the Talamasca. Louis seeks Merrick's help in resurrecting the spirit of Claudia.
The eighth book in The Vampire Chronicles series. The book begins with an ancient vampire of Nordic descent awaking after being frozen in a
block of ice for hundreds of years. The vampire, Thorne, meets Marius de Romanus and inquires about Marius' past. Marius then provides his
The ninth novel in The Vampire Chronicles series. The main character is Tarquin 'Quinn' Blackwood, a child of the Blackwood clan, which is a
powerful and old family in New Orleans. Quinn is haunted by a mysterious ghost named Goblin, who torments him mercilessly. He realizes that
he is unable to defeat this creature alone. Risking his life, Quinn embarks upon a quest to enlist the aid of the vampire Lestat de
Lioncourt. Lestat, after a fashion, agrees to help Quinn.
A novel by Anne Rice in which she combines the new characters from her novel Blackwood Farm with those from her previous novels in The
Vampire Chronicles and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches trilogy. The style of this book deviated immensely from Rice's other works, while the
storyline also created a very strong (and much-publicised) split in fan opinion.
