Summary

In this terrifying novel from the phenomenally successful Anne Rice, the illustrious vampire Lestat makes a Faustian pact with devil.
Satan has come to New Orleans with an enticing proposition. Under the name Memnoch, this lord of darkness takes Lestat on a tour through the boundaries of space and time, offering an alternative and personalised account of the Bible, exploring the events which shaped our world.
Their journey comes to an apocalyptic conclusion 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?

Mixed Bag

I really loved the Vampire Chronicles as a teenager and early adult. They always managed to absorb me fully, and I was in love with the way Rice wrote. But then I got to this book, and I ended up stopping little more than 4 chapters in, and never returning to the series.

This audiobook was my second attempt, then, because I want to read the others in the series eventually. And you know what, it wasn't as bad as I remembered. Yes, Rice at this point is very in love with her main character, and Lestat is quite Mary Sue-ish in his abilities. But I really enjoyed the concept, the twist, and the supporting cast of characters, at least.

It took me a little while to get used to Vance's narration, particularly the accent, but once I had, it was excellent and enjoyable.

I'm glad I've read this book, and can move onto the next. But I don't think I'll be rereading it anytime in the near future.
