Anne Rice is the author of more than thirty internationally bestselling books including `The Mayfair Witches' sequence, `The Songs of the Seraphim' and `The Wolf Gift Chronicles'.

Prince Lestat, published in 2014, and her new novel, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, are the first new Vampire Chronicle novels for over a decade. Anne Rice lives in California.Review:
"Rice succeeds masterfully in blending horror and romance- Ramses is a fascinating character, heroic, yet tragically flawed by his human desires" * Atlanta Journal * "The reader is held captive, and, ultimately, seduced" * San Francisco Chronicle * "Vintage Anne Rice: quickly paced, elegantly erotic and full of enchanting terror" * Detroit Free Press *
