MEMNOCH THE DEVIL
Trad. it.: Memnoch il Diavolo
In Anne Rice's extraordinary new novel, the Vampire Lestat -- outsider, canny monster, hero-wanderer - is at last offered the chance to be redeemed.
He is brought into direct confrontation with both God and the Devil, and into the land of Death.
We are in New York. The city is blanketed in snow. Through the whiteness Lestat is searching for Dora, the beautiful and charismatic daughter of a drug lord, the woman who arouses Lestat's tenderness as no mortal ever has.
While torn betwen his vampire passions and his overwhelming love for Dora, Lestat is confronted by the most dangerous adversaries he has yet known.
He is snatched from the world itself by the mysterious Memnoch, who claims to be the Devil. He is invited to be a witness at the Creation. He is taken like the ancient prophets into the heavenly realm and is ushered into Purgatory.
He must decide if he can believe in the Devil or in God. And finally, he must decide which, if either he will serve.
