--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

--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] 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

From the Paperback edition.

Reviewing the Evidence

Anne Rice makes references to ETHAN BRAND, a story of a man in search of the Unpardonable Sin and the journey Lestat is about to take is quite similar to the one taken by Young Goodman Brown, the title character in a Hawthorne short story.
