I thought that I read all of them, but I rechecked and realized that I have missed some. Hehe. I am readingBlood and Gold now, but I haven't read Blackwood Farm , Blood Canticle, and Merrick. I was reading Vittorio, the Vampire, but I had stopped for awhile.

BTW, I am just curious---has anyone read the Sleeping Beauty series? I have and they are very good.

I've sadly read them all as well. Why do I say sadly? Because Anne is not intending to make any more books for the Vampire Chronicles, so I have read em all,and I still want more!! :P

I've read all 10... repeatedly. I hope Anne Rice fails to stick to her statement, as I believe she will. Especially with the integration of the Mayfair Witches stories, I think she will have stories left to tell, and as she is the storyteller she is, a very good one, the stories must be told. Take heed Anne. You may feel you have become defined by these stories, and have other stories you wish to tell. Tell these stories, but never deny yourself the chance to visit these old friends, and make new ones. The heart will always yearn for the savage garden.

I've read them all, even though the later ones I found very disappointing.

I have read them all as well. Really FE? I like Blackwood Farm. Usually we are on the same page.

I thought Blackwood Farm had some good stuff in it, then I thought it had some rather pointless, badly written passages as well. The most disappointing thing to me about the later ones is that I could still see glimpses of what originally drew me to Rice as a writer but that it was buried under very repetitive stories and paper-thin characters. The stuff about the ghost was actually quite interesting though. And I was suprisingly moved by the death of a certain character at the end even though they hadn't been around in the series for long.

I can see that. Lestat's rant about Memnoch the Devil in the beginning nearly doomed the book for me. It seemed very..umm.. unlike him, I guess. Different language, different attitude and what was all that crap about him sounding like a gangster?

Yeah, in later books I felt she sort of lost the characters' voices. Still, overall, I'm not sorry that I read all the books, even though I felt the best of them came early.

I guess that's why I liked Blackwood Farm (other than the previous mentioned) because I felt that Tarquin and his family had more of the tone I was used to.

My plan is to read the first three Chronicles, and stop there. I've heard too many bad things about the rest, and I have too many other books I want to read.

If I may breezit, read the fourth one too. I think it is highly underrated. The writing may be starting on a slight decline, but the story itself is one of the most exciting and thrilling of the series, I think. After that one, by all means, skip 'em.

Blood and Gold was pretty good, not the best of course, but it had great moments.

I do agree that some of her characters where forgotten through the chronicles but i am still glad i read them all, blood and gold was one of my favourites, after interview, queen of the damned and the tale of the body thief.

I've read the Vampire Chronicles through Merrick, which I loved. Have not read the Witching Chronicles yet, I'm waiting to savor them this summer maybe.

i have not read any of the mayfair witches books, or lasher or taltos, but i can garantee that i will lol.

The Witching Hour I liked, but Lasher and Taltos I thought were really dreadful books. Blood Canticle, though boasted as the final Vampire book,is really the concluding chapter of the Mayfair Witch cycle.

They are separate stories but in the same universe so to speak of the Vampire books. In the later Vampire books, some of teh characters from the Witch books show up, which leads to Blood Canticle, where Vampire Lestat gets all caught up in the Mayfair witch saga.

Honestly I really wasn't a fan of any of the Mayfair books. But they were given to me so I read them all.

I've read all of the Chronicles. The first 5 are by far the best, though the two novellas/New Tales were AMAZING!!
