Memnoch the DevilBook - 1995
In Anne Rice's extraordinary new novel, the Vampire Lestat-outsider, 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 hiteness Lestat is searching for Dora, Lestat is confronted by the most dangerous adversaries he has yet known. He is snatched from the world itslf by the mysterious Memnoch, who claims to be the Devil. He is invited to be a witness at 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. Now, in her most daring and darkest novel, she takes us, with Lestat, into the muythical world that is most important to us-into the realms of our own theology.
