You can’t keep the un-dead down for long.
In an interview with TIME magazine, Anne Rice announced plans to resurrect the Vampire Chronicles series for one final instalment.
Fans were heartbroken when Rice, once an atheist, returned to church in 2005 and decided she would only write novels about the Lord. In fact, she told Christianity Today that “I would never go back, not even if they say you will be financially ruined. I would be a fool for all eternity to turn my back on God like that.”
Strong words, and Rice has justified her change of heart, saying that the book will have a heavy Christian influence, including a focus on the idea of redemption.
However, it will take a while to breathe life back into Lestat. Rice plans to write another book about the Lord before sinking her teeth into the Vampire sequel.
