Publisher's Summary

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?

Probably the best novel I’ve read in a while. Wonderful, thought provoking storyline which was so much more than I had anticipated given the themes of the vampire chronicles previous instalments. The narration was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Exceptional narration marred by boring story

Although I liked the concept of Lestat being haunted by one of his victims, I found Anne Rice's theological reinterpretation exhaustive and, in honest, quite boring. This is a big step away from the theme of the series thus far, which I found unappealing and unnecessary. Simon Vance's narration was pitch perfect.

Wasn't as good...

This just wasn't as good as the previous 4. I liked Roger and Dora, but then as soon as Memnoch revealed himself I sort of just zoned out. Everything that came out of his mouth was boring. I zoned back in for the end and that wasn't very spectacular either. Obviously I still love Lestat though!

Mixed Bag

I really loved the Vampire Chronicles as a teenager and early adult. They always managed to absorb me fully, and I was in love with the way Rice wrote. But then I got to this book, and I ended up stopping little more than 4 chapters in, and never returning to the series. This audiobook was my second attempt, then, because I want to read the others in the series eventually. And you know what, it wasn't as bad as I remembered. Yes, Rice at this point is very in love with her main character, and Lestat is quite Mary Sue-ish in his abilities. But I really enjoyed the concept, the twist, and the supporting cast of characters, at least. It took me a little while to get used to Vance's narration, particularly the accent, but once I had, it was excellent and enjoyable. I'm glad I've read this book, and can move onto the next. But I don't think I'll be rereading it anytime in the near future.

Just okay.. if that.

I love the characters. I love the vampire chronicles. Didn’t love this book. I read this years ago and remember struggling with it so thought I’d give the audiobook a go. I can probably only recall 3 events. The rest was needlessly detailed descriptions of angels etc. It probably didn’t need to be as long as it was! Simon Vance did a fabulous job trying to bring it to life but I feel like you could miss this one out and still enjoy the chronicles.

Not bad..not great

While I enjoyed the begining I ened up forcing myself to finish. The religious overtones seemed a bit to much and seemed to damage the character development of Lestat we saw in the previous books. Not one of the best in the series I have read / listened to so far

Not as good as the rest

This book was not as goodas her other vampire chronicles books. But still good. I found myself wondering off in thought a bit where as the past books had me compleatly captivated. The vocals were very frustrating. The accents were annoying. I would have rathered read the book. The man speaking as lestat sounded like gru from dispicable me movies 😂

This is heavier than the previous books.

Wow. Anne Rice really went to a new level with this one. Having a break.
