Description

"STARTLING. . . FIENDISH. . . MEMNOCH'S TALE IS COMPELLING."
--New York Daily News
Like Interview With the Vampire, Memnoch has a half-maddened, fever-pitch
intensity. . . Narrated by Rice's most cherished character, the vampire Lestat, Memnoch tells a tale as old as Scripture's legends and as modern as today's religious strife.
--Rolling Stone
"SHOCKING. . . A BRILLIANT BOOK."
--St. Louis Post Dispatch
"Rice has penned an ambitious close to this long-running series, as well as a classy exit for a classic horror character. . Fans will no doubt devour this last visit with Lestat."
--The Washington Post Book World
"MEMNOCH THE DEVIL OFFERS PASSAGES OF POETIC BRILLIANCE."
--Playboy
"[Memnoch] is one of Rice's most intriguing and sympathetic characters to date. . . Rice ups the ante, taking Lestat where few writers have ventured: into heaven and hell itself. She carries it off in top form."
--The Seattle Times
"RICHLY DESCRIPTIVE. . . A HORRIFIC TOUR OF HELL."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred)
