"[A] huge and sprawling tale of horror." —The New York Times Book Review
Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling, Anne Rice makes real for us a great dynasty of four centuries of witches—a family given to poetry and incest, murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being called Lasher who haunts the Mayfair women.
Moving in time from today's New Orleans and San Francisco to long-ago Amsterdam and the France of Louis XIV, from the coffee plantations of Port-au-Prince to Civil War New Orleans and back to today, Anne Rice has spun a mesmerizing tale that challenges everything we believe in.
Awesome Narration, Gripping Story
I almost didn’t take a chance on this due to other reviews saying the narrator’s style annoyed them. But I love this novel and unabridged is all I bother with, so I listened to the preview. The narrator is a little monotone in the first few minutes but then that stopped and she won me over entirely. I love when they do different voices for characters if they aren’t too odd and she does this very well. It is a very subjective thing to like or not like a narrator, but a few reviews by those who don’t like it do not mean someone else will agree. Listen to the preview. If you love this novel, give it a shot. I can’t wait to get back to it each day and I will listen to it more than once.
