The Queen of the Damned (The Vampire Chronicles, #3)

I really enjoyed the Vampire Lestat in book 2 and couldnt wait to read more but I think this book went down too many avenues and left me confused. I found there were too may charactors to keep track on. The story of the red haired twins and how the first vampire was created 6000 years ago in Eygpt is the backbone of this book. You learn how the mother and father got their powers and what they did to get them. This was very interesting and a must read. The big question from book 2 is during their thousands of years as 'Those who must be kept' were they living statues with feelings and thoughts? Well disappointingly although this question is answered is merely skimmed along while pages are devouted to boring storylines like baby Jenks and Jessie. Lestat plays a big part in book 3 and you wont expect what he sets out to do in the beginning but by the end of the book I didnt like the journey he's been on and where it had taken my favourite charactor. I believe book 4 The Tale of the Body Thief is focussed on what Lestat did next and has far less charactors to follow.
