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.

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!

Not even close to the book

Would you try another book from Anne Rice and/or Roger Rees?

Not if the audiobook is missing as much as this one.

What was most disappointing about Anne Rice’s story?

Missing parts

Have you listened to any of Roger Rees’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Do you think Memnoch the Devil needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It needs to be update to reflect the whole book.
