The Vampire Lestat - By Anne Rice - The second book in the series The Vampire Chronicles (the first being Interview with the Vampire). I find Rice to be a verbose author, but she does write good story lines! This book continues the tale of Lestat, describing his history and his rise as a rock star in the '80s.
This is the story of Louis, as told in his own words, of his journey through mortal and immortal life. He recounts becoming a vampire at the hands of the radiant and sinister Lestat and how he became indoctrinated, unwillingly, into the vampire way of life.
