What to expect

In this terrifying novel from the phenomenally successful Anne Rice, the illustrious vampire Lestat makes a Faustian pact with Devil.

Satan has come to New Orleans with an enticing proposition. Under the name Memnoch this lord of darkness takes Lestat on a tour through the boundaries of space and time, offering an alternative and personalised account of the Bible, exploring the events which shaped our world.

Their journey comes to an apocalyptic conclusion in hell, from which Lestat returns frail and broken. The experience has shattered his perceptions of the known Universe, but can you ever trust the Devil?

New York Daily News

Rice's most passionate and inventive work since Interview With the Vampire, Memnoch has a half-maddened, fever-pitch intensity and tells a tale as old as Scripture's legends and as modern as today's religious strife

Rolling Stone

Lavish description, rapid narrative, gorgeous costume, and larger-than-life heroes, all against the biggest concept of them all: immortality

A modern Paradise Lost
