In Anne Rice's extraordinary novel, the Vampire Lestat--outsides, canny monster, hero-wanderer--is at last offered the chance to be redeemed. He is brought into direct confrontation with both God and the Devil, and into the land of Death. We are in New York. The city is blanketed in snow. Through the whiteness Lestat is searching for Dora, the beautiful and charismatic daughter of a drug lord, the woman who arouses Lestat's tenderness as no mortal ever has. While torn between his vampire passions and his overwhelming love for Dora, Lestat is confronted by the most dangerous of adversaries he has yet known. He is snatched from the world itself by the mysterious Memnoch, who claims to be the Devil. He is invited to be a witness at the Creation. He is taken like the ancient prophets into the heavenly realm and is ushered into Purgatory. He must decide if he can believe in the Devil or in God. And finally, he must decide which, if either, he will serve. In the first four Vampire Chronicles, Anne Rice summoned up for us worlds that are fantastic and distant, making them as resonant, real, and immediate as our own. In this, her most daring and darkest novel, she takes us, with Lestat, into the mythical world that is most important to us--into the realms of our own theology.

display_description "STARTLING. . . FIENDISH. . . MEMNOCH'S TALE IS COMPELLING." --New York Daily News Like Interview With the Vampire, Memnoch has a half-maddened, fever-pitch intensity. . . Narrated by Rice's most cherished character, the vampire Lestat, Memnoch tells a tale as old as Scripture's legends and as modern as today's religious strife. --Rolling Stone "SHOCKING. . . A BRILLIANT BOOK." --St. Louis Post Dispatch "Rice has penned an ambitious close to this long-running series, as well as a classy exit for a classic horror character. . Fans will no doubt devour this last visit with Lestat." --The Washington Post Book World "MEMNOCH THE DEVIL OFFERS PASSAGES OF PoeTIC BRILLIANCE." --Playboy "[Memnoch] is one of Rice's most intriguing and sympathetic characters to date. . . Rice ups the ante, taking Lestat where few writers have ventured: into heaven and hell itself. She carries it off in top form." --The Seattle Times "RICHLY DESCRIPTIVE. . . A HORRIFIC TOUR OF HELL." --Kirkus Reviews (starred) A MAIN SELECTION OF THE BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH CLUB AND THE QUALITY PAPERBACK BOOK CLUB
