    Lestat speaks. Vampire-hero, enchanter, seducer of mortals. For centuries he has been a courted prince in the dark and flourishing universe of the living dead. Lestat is alone.

    Prince Lestat by Anne Rice( Sound Recording )
    1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 639 libraries worldwide
    "The novel opens with the Vampire world in crisis ... vampires have been proliferating out of control; burnings have commenced all over the world, huge massacres similar to those carried out by Akasha in The Queen of the Damned ... Old vampires, roused from slumber in the earth are doing the bidding of a Voice commanding that they indiscriminately burn vampire-mavericks in cities from Paris and Mumbai to Hong Kong, Kyoto and San Francisco. As the novel moves from present day New York and the West Coast to ancient Egypt, fourth century Carthage, 14th century Rome, the Venice of the Renaissance, the worlds and beings of all the Vampire Chronicles-- from Louis de Pointe du Lac, the eternally young Armand whose face is that of a Botticelli angel; Mekare and Maharet, Pandora and Flavius; David Talbot, vampire and ultimate fixer from the Secret Talamasca, and Marius, the true child of the Millennia; along with all the other new seductive, supernatural creatures-- come together in this novel to, ultimately, rise up and seek out who-- or what-- The Voice is, and to discover the secret of what it desires and why ... And, at the book's center, the seemingly absent, curiously missing hero-wanderer, the dazzling, dangerous rebel-outlaw-- the great "hope" of the Undead, the dazzling Prince Lestat ..."--

    1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
    "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 "SHOCKING. . . A BRILLIANT BOOK." --St. Louis Post Dispatch "Rice has penned an ambitious close to this long-running series, as well as a classy exit for a classic horror character. . Fans will no doubt devour this last visit with Lestat." --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 "RICHLY DESCRIPTIVE. . . A HORRIFIC TOUR OF HELL." --Kirkus Reviews (starred) A MAIN SELECTION OF THE BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH CLUB AND THE QUALITY PAPERBACK BOOK CLUB
