The last thing she has thought of is marriage. But fate brings Malcolm Donahue into her life. Brash, rude and intransigent, Malcolm is the last sort of man Ailsa expects herself to find attractive. But he is the son of the Laird Donahue, and her father expects her to make the alliance.
Amidst growing tension between the clans, Ailsa and Malcolm find themselves drawn inexplicably closer and their convenient alliance deepens into something so much more as chaos blossoms around them.
And when violence breaks out between her husband's forces and their ancient enemy, Ailsa does not know where to turn. All she knows is that she cannot lose the man she loves. A story of wildness, beauty and dawning love set against the mystical backdrop of Medieval Scotland.
In ancient times vampires formed a religion-like cult , and in the Middle Ages, believing themselves cursed, dwelt in catacombs under cemeteries in covens which emphasized darkness and their own cursed state. Vampires are largely solitary; Lestat's "family" of 80 years is described as unusually long. There is no organized society beyond covens, religious bodies, and small groups from time to time. While a few vampires seem to find a way to cope with immortality, most capitulate to self-destructive anger or depression and do not survive beyond some decades or a few centuries.
This is described in the series by the saying that vampires "go into the fire or go into history"—the few that survive far longer become legendary or semi-mythical characters. The most ancient vampires, a thousand or more years old, are known colloquially as "Children of the Millennia".
In his life as a vampire, Lestat spends decades trying to find any vampire who is more than a few hundred years old, as a way to learn where they all came from and what their vampiric status means, a quest that eventually leads him to the year-old Marius. Louis de Pointe du Lac tells a young reporter the story of how he had been made a vampire in 18th-century New Orleans by Lestat de Lioncourt. In creating and sheltering the child vampire Claudia , Lestat and Louis had unknowingly set tragedy in motion. This book chronicles Lestat's own origins, as he resurfaces in the modern world, his attempt to find meaning by exposing himself to humanity in the guise of a rock star, his search when younger for Marius, culminating with his accidental awakening of Akasha , the ancient Egyptian queen and first vampire, who has been immobile for millennia and is being safeguarded by Marius.
Lestat has awakened Akasha, the first of all vampires, who has in her thousands of years of immobility, contrived an idealised way to achieve world peace, by killing almost all males and all other vampires that she can destroy. She is destroyed by Mekare, who has awakened and returned after 6, years to fulfil a promise to destroy Akasha at the moment she poses the greatest threat. A thief switches bodies with him and runs off, and Lestat enlists David Talbot , leader of the Talamasca and one of his only remaining friends, to help him retrieve it. In Memnoch the Devil , Lestat meets the eponymous demon and is faced with a theological personal crisis.
Rice's New Tales of the Vampires —'s Pandora and 's Vittorio the Vampire —do not feature Lestat at all, instead telling the stories of the eponymous peripheral vampires, the Patrician Pandora from Rome in the 1st century B. The origins of Marius de Romanus are explored in 's Blood and Gold , and Blackwood Farm tells the story of young Tarquin Blackwood as he enlists Lestat and Merrick to help him banish a spirit named Goblin. Prince Lestat rejoins the remaining vampires a decade later as Lestat faces pressure to lead them.
The series primarily follows the antihero Lestat, and by extension the many humans and vampires whose lives he has touched in his own long existence. Rice also explores the origins of vampires far more ancient than the so-called "brat prince". In Rice called her vampires a "metaphor for lost souls", adding that "they were metaphors for us The homoerotic overtones of The Vampire Chronicles are also well-documented.
On the homoerotic content of my novels: I can only say what I have said many times—that no form of love between consenting individuals appears wrong to me. I see bisexuality as power. When I write I have no gender. It is difficult for me to see the characters in terms of gender.

I have written individuals who can fall in love with men and women. All this feels extremely natural to me. Undoubtedly, there is a deep protest in me against the Roman Catholic attitude toward sexuality. My characters have always been transcending gender I think the main issue with me is love, not gender. I have never understood the great prejudice against gay people in our society I don't know why I see the world that way, but I know that it's very much a point with me, that we should not be bound by prejudices where gender is concerned. Keller asserts that the publication and success of Rice's Vampire Chronicles reinforced the "widely recognized parallel between the queer and the vampire.
