Anne Rice's vampire chronicles. Particularly Queen of the Damned. This story gives a similar feel to Lestat's rise but it holds its own as story. William Mercier is a very intriguing character. From his age to his era to his minimal knowledge of his condition.

The book is well written. I also gathered the feel of the great Highlander Stories, a hint of history and hunting each other. The environment and tactics of battle lend to that as well. The book is well written with lots of detail but not "congested" The story ends with the reader wanting more but perfectly open to hunger for the next book in the trilogy. Which character — as performed by Carl Prekopp — was your favorite? William the Earl of Mercier. He really becomes him. I loved his voice and his passion. Prior to getting this audible I was concerned that it would be a great job or a bust.
Nathan is a witch, William a vampire, different characters but typically very similar in cadence, accent, darkness, etc. Prekopp did beautifully.
In the beginning it sounded very much like Nathan and that character was very fresh in my mind still, but after a few pages it was very clear this was not Nathan but in fact was William Mercier and Prekopp OWNED it!! Just as he had with Nathan he became William. You could feel him standing right there talking to you.
You could imagine your being right there in that place he was speaking of. Average narrators still feel like they are simply reading of a page, not with Prekopp. Even when he changed his voice to speak as another character in the book, each one was distinct and unique. It also plays to the novel itself in the way it is written.

If you like Vampires and want a younger feel, this book is very worth the read and the listen! What did you like best about this story? The Gothic element. Which scene was your favorite? The scene between Will and his brother. In a genre littered with mediocre offerings, this really stands out. The Author doesn't sugar-coat Will's vampire nature, while at the same time managing to make him a sympathetic character.
