In modern-day Dubai, vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac sits down with journalist Daniel Molloy to share the story of his life which begins in the hustle and bustle of 20th-century New Orleans. There, challenged by the constraints as a queer Black man in 1900s America, Louis finds it impossible to ignore the irresistible allure of Lestat de Lioncourt’s offer of the ultimate escape: a chance to outmanoeuvre the confines of mortality and join him as his vampire companion.

But Louis’ new powers come at a price and the introduction of Lestat’s latest creation, child vampire Claudia, propels them on a path of revenge and redemption spanning decades.
