"MY NAME IS MEMNOCH," he said calmly, with a small pleading gesture. "Memnoch The Devil. I want you to remember it that way... Lestat, I've been waiting for someone like you for centuries. I've been watching you yourself for centuries. No I'm afraid I'm not going to leave you alone. But I don't want you to be miserable. What can I do to calm you? Some small miracle, gift, anything, so that we can proceed."
"And how in hell will we proceed?"
"I'll tell you everything," he said with a slight shrug, his hand open, "and then you'll understand why I have to win...."
The vampire Lestat -- outsider, canny monster, hero-wanderer -- is snatched from the world itself by the most dangerous adversary he has ever known: Memnoch, a mysterious being 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. Lestat must decide if he can believe in the Devil or in God. And finally, he must decide which, if either, he will serve.
