TL excellent and fair review hun :)


Sh3lly (GrumpyBookGrrrl.com) Thanks! I enjoyed reading it although was a little disappointed. It seemed bloated, although there were a few really exciting sections. Unfortunately, not enough to raise my rating.


Kelly (and the Book Boar) Great review! (As a "bully" I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to read any more of Rice's books myself LOL)

your welcome, i'm glad you enjoyed it for the most part... yeah, i've heard the same things from other reviewers too, i won't be picking this one up.

accidentally clicked on spoiler tag and read it... THAT was, weird haha. Stretching it a little far for me.


Sh3lly (GrumpyBookGrrrl.com) @Kelly Yeah, I was part of the group she called bullies at Amazon - actually I think it was "Amazon thugs" - after the whole Sookie Stackhouse last book thing blew up over there.

TL, that was way over the top to be honest, but I just went with it. She tried to incorporate several "science" theories to explain or legitimize some of the plot. Some of it was interesting, some not so much.

oh wow, she needs to chill a bit. She makes all this money with her books and has a devoted fanbase, no need for crap like she's been doing. *shakes head*

what happened with the Sookie stackhouse book?

//aah okay

Robbi Leah  Freeman Do you recommend rereading other books before reading this. I've been a huge fan for a long time and have read with books 4x each but never read the vampires over. What do you suggest? Really worried about all Negative reviews... I would hate for one book to ruin my obsession with Anne Rice and her Rambling books...Thank you.


Sh3lly (GrumpyBookGrrrl.com) Hi Robbi. Have you read all the other ones before this? You may like it. It is very similiar to the other ones, same style and tone. I still want to re-read the earlier books. It hasn't put me off wanting to try the entire series again. I think if you want to read it, you should regardless of the reviews. :)


Sh3lly (GrumpyBookGrrrl.com) As long as you remember what happened in Queen of the Damned, you would be okay to read this because there are several characters from that book in this one with large roles. The other books in the series are kind of stand-alone. I think it makes a reference or two to The Tale of the Body Thief.

Robbi Leah  Freeman Yep read them all and have them in hardback. She is my favorite author. I will Reread Queen of Damned again. Thanks for your opinion!


The Drowsy Bookworm My brother bought me this book as a bday gift, but I haven't read any of the others in the series so it's just sitting on my shelf looking intimidating. Is this ok as a standalone or not at all? lol


Sh3lly (GrumpyBookGrrrl.com) It's better if you have a background with the series. At least the first 3 books. A lot of the ones that came later are just stories about various vampires around the world and focus only on their story. These new books have those same characters, but they aren't major characters. Only the ones from the first three books. I would recommend reading those first. But, I think this has a glossary and "encyclopedia" type section that explains the characters. You could try it as a stand-alone?


The Drowsy Bookworm Thanks Shelly! Sorry I didn’t see the previous comments where you also touched on that. I’ll keep that in mind , my poor Bro probably had no idea lol 😆

Rhiannon Chillingworth Great review! I read this quite a long time ago, but I felt similarly to you. I loved being back in the world, as like you, this series was so prolific bin my teen years, but there were definite issues with it! Are you going to read the next one? It's got something to do with Atlantis in the title. It's a bit crazy, from what I can remember!
