The book starts with Lestat heading out on horseback to kill a pack of wolves that were harassing his village. All the wolves die in this sequence, and their deaths are graphically described

Not technically, however, Lestat’s vampire transformation in which he’s abducted from his home and forced to be turned into a vampire is considered by many fans to be reminiscent of rape in multiple ways and could be triggering to read because of the rape-like imagery that’s used.

Lestat’s horse and dogs die at the beginning. He apparently cared for and loved them like pets

Lestat’s childhood was abusive and is described in some detail. There’s some minimal description of a father threatening to break his sons hands
