Queen of the Damned

Finally got round to the 3rd volume of the Vampire Chronicles and absolutely loved it. Always a pleasure, but specifically enjoyed learning more of the origins and the ancient ones; never a bland character.

For some bizarre reason I actually merged Baby Jenks and Jesse together though. That was a fault of mine rather than the writing. From reading back over Jenks’ chapter I have no idea how…

Watched the film again afterwards and forgot how bad it was.
Grand budget and great soundtrack, but most of the characters don’t reflect the book well.
Stuart Townsend played a good Lestat though, and they did try to keep the core points to the one film.

Looking forward to seeing what becomes of the Vampire Chronicles television series that’s in the hands of Anne herself and her son Chris.

For now, onto The Tale of the Body Thief.
