Synopsis

Following a bloody battle against foes on every side, Paige Mahoney has risen to the dangerous position of Underqueen, ruling over London's criminal population.

But, having turned her back on Jaxon Hall and with vengeful enemies still at large, the task of stabilizing the fractured underworld has never seemed so challenging.

Little does Paige know that her reign may be cut short by the introduction of Senshield, a deadly technology that spells doom for the clairvoyant community and the world as they know it . . .

The Song Rising: Collector's Edition by Samantha Shannon will be released the same day as the non-collector's edition. It will be on March 7, 2017. I just preordered my copies (both editions)!

Anne Rice Revisits 'The Vampire Chronicles' With 'Prince Lestat And The Realms of Atlantis'

For months, I've been looking for "Blood Paradise" because it's basically the working title of the next Lestat book written by Anne Rice. No news have surfaced for quite a while and I was thinking maybe it isn't coming this year. And boom I have this great surprise, hearing about a new novel from said author, but it isn't the same title.

That is because the title of the next Prince Lestat adventure is Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis. Maybe becuase the marketing team is making a brand out of "Prince Lestat," just like book titles as "Harry Potter and the...". I have no qualms about it! So here is the official cover and synopsis.

Check out the cover of Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice.

Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice

Synopsis


From Anne Rice, conjurer of the beloved best sellers Interview with a Vampire and Prince Lestat, an ambitious and exhilarating new novel of utopian vision and power, uniting the ancient worlds and the legends of the Vampire Chronicles.

"In my dreams, I saw a city fall into the sea. I heard the cries of thousands. I saw flames that outshone the lamps of heaven. And all the world was shaken . . ." --Anne Rice, Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis

At the novel's center: the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, hero, leader, inspirer, irresistible force, irrepressible spirit, battling (and ultimately reconciling with) a strange otherworldly form that has somehow taken possession of Lestat's undead body and soul. This ancient and mysterious power and unearthly spirit of vampire lore has all the force, history, and insidious reach of the unknowable Universe.

It is through this spirit, previously considered benign for thousands of vampire years and throughout the Vampire Chronicles, that we come to be told the hypnotic tale of a great sea power of ancient times; a mysterious heaven on earth situated on a boundless continent--and of how and why, and in what manner and with what far-reaching purpose, this force came to build and rule the great legendary empire of centuries ago that thrived in the Atlantic Ocean.

And as we learn of the mighty, far-reaching powers and perfections of this lost kingdom of Atalantaya, the lost realms of Atlantis, we come to understand its secrets, and how and why the vampire Lestat, indeed all the vampires, must reckon so many millennia later with the terrifying force of this ageless, all-powerful Atalantaya spirit.

Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice will be released on November 29, 2016.
