In Anne Rice’s extraordinary novel, the vampire Lestat—outsider,
monster, antihero—is at last offered the chance to be redeemed.
Lestat is in New York and the city is blanketed in snow.
Through the whiteness he is searching for Dora, the beautiful and charismatic
daughter of a drug lord—the woman who arouses Lestat’s tenderness as no mortal
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. Invited to be a witness at the creation of the world, he
is taken like the ancient prophets into the heavenly realm and then ushered into purgatory.
Now Lestat must decide if he can believe in the devil or in
God … and which one he will serve.
In her amazing Vampire Chronicles series, Anne Rice has summoned
up worlds that are fantastic and distant, making them as resonant, real, and
immediate as our own. In Memnoch the Devil, a dark and daring novel, she takes us,
with Lestat, into the mythical world that is most important to us—into the
realms of our own theology. Download and start listening now!
