Publisher's Summary

"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..."

At the novel's centre: the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, hero, leader, irresistible force, irrepressible spirit, battling (and ultimately reconciling with) a strange otherworldly form that has taken possession of his 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 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 powers 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.

Struggle

I have always enjoyed the vampire chronicles. Loved some of the stories. But this one, realms of Atlantis. I struggled to stay interested, I’m very sad to say. However, it did tie up some loose ends that was both pleasing (memnock) and disappointing (Quinn). And the premise of the plot was good. Just too many new characters with their own back stories. Wished author would have further developed known (loved or hated) characters from previous books that were just in the background with little to no action. Book started very promising.

good concept

The story is a good concept and like all the Anne Rice chronicles has a wonderful and unique history to vampirism. The problem i found with the book was the amount of padding verses the depth of the story. I think the new characters and the story around their creation deserved a better and far more indepth telling, but to much time was spent describing clothing and seating arrangements. Its a shame that the book did not appear get the dedication that its concept required to create the potential that is undoubtedly there within the tale.

Disappointing

very disappointing , maybe to many years have passed by from when I first read about Anne Rice's Vampires, I found this one droll, I just couldn't get on with it, I had to make myself give it a go and be fair but I got to chapter five and just couldn't go on and so I gave up.
