Memnoch The Devil

The Vampire Chronicles 5

Formats & editions

Apocalyptic new novel, the fifth in the chronicles of the Vampire Lestat, who stars (played by Tom Cruise) in the major Hollywood movie INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE.

In this terrifying novel from the phenomenally successful Anne Rice, the vampire Lestat makes a Faustian pact with a fallen angel who calls himself Memnoch.

Lestat soon discovers that Memnoch is in fact the Devil himself and that he has come to New Orleans with a proposition. With his satanic guide Lestat tours the boundaries of space and time as Memnoch offers an alternative and personalised account of the Bible, exploring the events which shaped our world.

Their journey ends with an apocalyptic denouement 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?

Praise for Memnoch The Devil

“A modern Paradise Lost”

Washington Post

“Lavish description, rapid narrative, gorgeous costume, and larger-than-life heroes, all against the biggest concept of them all: immortality”


“Startling, fiendish, compelling”

New York Daily News

“Rice's most passionate and inventive work since Interview With the Vampire, Memnoch has a half-maddened, fever-pitch intensity and tells a tale as old as Scripture's legends and as modern as today's religious strife”

Mikal Gilmore, Rolling Stone
