Rate this:
A vampire is offered work by both God and the Devil. He is Lestat, a man of action who just bumped off a billionaire for smuggling cocaine. The job interviews yield quite a bit of information on his prospective employers, including why God expelled the Devil from Paradise at the time of the Creation. It appears the Devil was against God's scheme to make suffering a regular part of life.

I thought it was exciting especially at the end and the end does leave one questioning. By the end Lestat is as badass as ever, but who is the most powerful vampire still? Love these books starting The Vampire Armand straight away. Although there is Pandora but that's more a tie in and not part of the Vampire Chronicles. Pandora and The Vampire Vittorio are New Tales of the Vempires that are tie in stories and not actually part of the series.

I hit a vampire brick wall with this book. As terrific as the original trilogy was, 'Memnoch' killed any interest in ever reading another Anne Rice vampire book.

i dont particularly like or hate it. i agree with the person below; im not big on religious topics either. if you're somebody that is into that, you would probably enjoy it more.

This tale is heavy on religion; I would have preferred less of it. Yet, never has Lestat been so affected by events. Is it possible that our vampire has finally matured? Or, will he be back to his same old antics? I’m looking forward to the next book.

Another goo tale from Rice. As usual, I found it hars to get past the beginning and really get into the story but once I did it was a winner!

Probably my favourite Anne Rice book. Incredibly ambitious. Underrated.
