“What’s happening to me?” a young man named Jonas asks as he looks into the eyes of his Aunt Claire—a woman who’s been dead for over twelve years. Like most people, Jonas had no idea his time had come, nor is he prepared for what he’s about to face next. He had assumed he would be taken to an afterlife full of puffy clouds and golden harps, but instead, he is met with a cold, terrifying revelation: “Heaven isn’t a place you can go to escape your fears,” his aunt says, “it is a place for those who have already faced them.”

Little did Jonas know, in order to get to heaven, he would need to find the courage to walk through hell first.

The Choice is a novel that takes us through some of our worst fears in order to find a beauty and hope that transcends even the most heart wrenching pain. Cross over to the other side and explore the meaning of life from the perspective that only death can provide.

The Vampire Chronicles continue with a riveting, rich saga--part adventure, part suspense--of Prince Lestat and the story of the Blood Communion as he tells the tale of his coming to rule the vampire world and the eternal struggle to find belonging, a place in the universe for the undead, and how, against his will, he must battle the menacing, seemingly unstoppable force determined to thwart his vision and destroy the entire vampire netherworld.

In this spellbinding novel, Lestat, rebel outlaw, addresses the tribe of vampires, directly, intimately, passionately, and tells the mesmerizing story of the formation of the Blood Communion and how he became Prince of the vampire world, the true ruler of this vast realm, and how his vision for all the Children of the Universe to thrive as one, came to be.
The tale spills from Lestat's heart, as he speaks first of his new existence as reigning monarch--and then of his fierce battle of wits and words with the mysterious Rhoshamandes, proud Child of the Millennia, reviled outcast for his senseless slaughter of the legendary ancient vampire Maharet, avowed enemy of Queen Akasha; Rhoshamandes, a demon spirit who refuses to live in harmony at the Court of Prince Lestat and threatens all that Lestat has dreamt of.
As the tale unfolds, Lestat takes us from the towers and battlements of his ancestral castle in the snow-covered mountains of France to the verdant wilds of lush Louisiana with its lingering fragrances of magnolias and night jasmine; from the far reaches of the Pacific's untouched islands to the 18th-century city of St. Petersburg and the court of the Empress Catherine . . .
