I have just started reading the Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles Blood Communion: A Tale of Prince Lestat novel.
Which is a tale told by the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, in which he recounts his confrontations with the villainous vampire Rhoshamandes; his efforts to successfully rule the vampiric world as Prince Lestat; and his attempts to bring together the vampires of the world into one unified, familial tribe, in order to end centuries of enmity and isolation between the various vampiric factions and individuals. Over the course of the novel, Lestat is forced to grapple with questions of vampiric mortality; the limitations of his own ability to save and protect the ones he loves; as well as his overall purpose and goals as an both individual blooddrinker and as Prince of the vampires.

Has anyone else read this novel yet?

I was sad about the fate of Rhoshamandes and Benedict. All in all I loved it although there are things I can nit pick about.

Really I love what a /huge/ inversion is being attempted in Anne Rice’s new Vampire Chronicles books

Oh, and the conversation between Armand and Benedict was one of my favorite pieces of dialogue in the whole series.

How are you liking the book so far?

Seems like I have to buy this book now from what you've posted Ailix.

The plot is pretty narrow in scope, doesn’t quite have all the fancy world-building bells and whistles as Prince Lestat and Prince Lestat And The Realms Of Atlantis, but it has some really nice character arc moments.

Shameless plug: I wrote a big fat review on my blog along with another post about the Prince Lestat novels in general. The link is in my profile
