Anne Rice

Any book by Rice is a hot commodity, especially in the wake of the movie version of Interview with the Vampire, but even so, a million copy print run for her latest, the fifth in the cultishly beloved Vampire Chronicle series, seems extreme. Rice has brought her suave and deadly hero, the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, back to center stage at a tricky conjuncture in his long, monstrous life: the murderously powerful and seductive immortal is being stalked by some terrifying force he can't identify. This is interfering with his plans to kill Roger, a handsome drug dealer whose passion for religious art is only exceeded by his love for his daughter Dora, a lithesome televangalist. As Lestat spies on Roger, falls in love with Dora, and tries to figure out who or what is after him, he finds himself in the grip of a spiritual crisis. Yes, this dandyish bloodsucker wants desperately to discover the meaning of life, and, lo and behold, his stalker, Memnoch, the Devil himself, is just the creature to guide him. Memnoch claims that God is merciless and he is compassionate, and he needs Lestat to help him rescue humanity from this vale of tears. Rice routinely fills her novels with tedious pseudotheology, but she really goes overboard here. Not only does Memnoch take Lestat to Heaven where he talks with God, he even takes him back in time to the Crucifixion where the vampire drinks Christ's blood. This clumsily told tale manages to be both ludicrous and offensive. Surely only die-hard Vampire Chronicle fans will be able to stand it, but they, like Rice's monsters, seem to be rampant.

`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

`SENSUAL... BOLD, FAST-PACED.`
~ USA Today

`Rice has penned an ambitious close to this long-running series... Fans will no doubt devour this.`
~ 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
