Review Third book of the Vampire Chronicles, written by Anne Rice, published 1988. In this book there is a lot of exploration of the history and mythology of vampires and dates all the way back to Egypt. The book starts out with characters that have previously been introduced and then brings in the past history back to Egypt. This book can be called a work of feminism. The Queen wants to kill off the males because they don't deserve to live. Of course it is also a book of good and evil and about evolution of mankind. The author tries to base morality on ethics rather than religion and morality in the book is from the world view of a vampire. I don't plan to read any further in this series but read the first 3 as part of NPR 100 best horror books. ( )

The last time I read "The Queen of the Damned" was close to twenty years ago, so it was just about the right amount of time to feel almost like I was reading it for the first time.

This begins right where "The Vampire Lestat" left off with Lestat's rock concert in San Francisco with some vampires loving him and some ready to kill him, and something killing almost all of them.

Here we have the vampire queen, Akasha, finally getting up after sitting her throne for 6,000 years, while two other 6,000 year old ones, Maharet and Khayman, both of whom are too strong to be killed by Akasha, get together with the younger ones that Lestat loves to try and stop her plans.

Akasha's plan is nothing short of becoming a goddess and ruling the world by killing 90% of the men in order for women to live in peace without war and killing and violence.

She takes Lestat on a tour of some of the most impoverished, troubled parts of the world to try and get him to understand the value in her plan while feeding him enough of her own blood to make him as strong and powerful as any of the ancient ones and he tries to talk her out of it.

Meanwhile, in a hidden compound, Maharet tells the few remaining vampires the history of how vampires came to be, since she, her twin and Khayman were part of their genesis, and how Akasha can be expected to behave so they can think of a way to defeat her.

Anne Rice's theme in this seems to be anti-religion as the 'good guys' discuss it and state how humanity has advanced and since some of them are old enough they say the world is far better with science progressing over religion than in earlier times.

Overall, it's pretty good. A lot of it is a bit longish and the story and themes could probably have been told a little more concise. Many of the scenes with Akasha and Lestat feel like they drag on longer than they should. ( )

Anne Rice is the author to go to when you want to read a really good vampire novel. Not the type of vampire novels where vampires sparkle and are just too over the top (eye roll). This is vampires done well, with all the rich details and history to go along with them. I love this series and need to pick it back up again - I got stuck on the 6th one and need to push through it!
