Publisher's Summary

The Vampire Lestat - outsider, canny monster, hero-wanderer - is at last offered the chanced 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 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; he is ushered into Purgatory. He must decide if he can believe in the Devil or in God. He must decide which, if either, to serve.

Memnoch the Devil is Volume 5 of The Vampire Chronicles.

Very Interesting book

This audiobook was very interesting. For those of us who have a knowledge of religous folklore this audiobook really gave a curious look into the mind of the devil. It lines up with some of the more extreme ideas about the nature of relationship between god, "the devil, and "jesus".

Intersting Ideas

I enjoyed this book very much. It was entertaining and had some intersting ideas as well. Anne Rice's books are full of suprizes and this one did not disapoint.

Captivating and Intriguing

i find this segment in Lestate's Journey compelling, it is spiritual in literal and mystical terms. obviously it is spiritual in nature as it involves: heaven, hell, god, and the devil. However, it actually can grab at you whether your Christian or not. much of the wisdom Anne Rice shares in this novel can translate into the readers psyche and inherited collective understanding.

SHELLY'S SUGGESTIONS

A beautifully written story. Shines as a stand alone, but more enjoyable to read the book in order. I have read and Listened at least 5 times, start to finish, I think you will find them a great read.

outstanding

This story was great. I loved hearing Memnoch's take as well as the tour thru heaven and Hell. This book truly was worth the wait. The narrator did an excellent job reading keeping me tuned in and in a daze as they read. Loved it!
