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.

    " Loved this book, my favorite one in the series for sure, this new look at heaven and hell was really interesting. Sadly i read it so long ago that i've forgotten a lot of the plot so i can't write much more but i will rectify that by buying a new copy when i have the cash :) "

    " Absolutely the most ridiculous book! It took my 16 years and four tries to read this masterpiece, seriously Anne just start a church or something. "

    " I think that this is my favorite Anne Rice book, I dont know why but i really like it. "

    " Memnoch's story is fascinating, but the way it is told unfortunately doesn't make for a great novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angelo | 5/18/2011

    " The best in the series in my opinion. A fantastic journey and a truly memorable character. I remember reading it in a matter of days and then returning for more. Five stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ross | 5/14/2011

    " In my opinion this is where the Vampire Chronicles should have stopped. Memnoch is a surprisingly lucid exploration of the nature of evil as it resides within Christian thought. It is a well-written book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 5/5/2011

    " This is probably my favorite book in the Vampire Chronicles, my favorite book by Anne Rice, and one of my favorite books overall. It's not as much about vampires, but more about religion, and it gives a really interesting and different view on Christianity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 4/28/2011

    " Exelent book: Thrilling, Crazy, VEEEEEEEEERY long, tiny text... What more could I ask for? (Except for a cookie. Mmmmm, coooooookie......) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Daniel | 4/27/2011

    " Lazy writing, poor characterization,an all-around bad example of Anne Rice's writing. At the height of her fame, she ran out of ideas and to my mind she's never recovered. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daphne | 4/15/2011

    " i love how Anne Rice is so descriptive, heaven, hell & purgatory. A must. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Novella | 4/2/2011

    " Another low in the series. I nearly gave up on The Vampire Chronicles at this point but held out for "The Vampire Armand" and "Pandora". The plot is silly & contrived. Save yourself some time and skip ahead to the next novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cleon | 4/1/2011

    " The plot is too confusing. The plot and prose are over the top. I am not religious, but I dislike anti religious propaganda being shoved in my face. "
