Publisher's Summary

From the day her first Vampire Chronicle was published, critics and readers - readers by the hundreds of thousands - have been mesmerized by the writings of Anne Rice. And with the publication of The Witching Hour, she created for us yet another world and legend, and both the chorus of praise and the multitudes of her readers and listeners once more increased.
Now, Anne Rice brings us again - even more magically - into the midst of the dynasty of witches she introduced in The Witching Hour.
At the center: the brilliant an beautiful Rowan Mayfair, queen of the coven, and Lasher, the darkly compelling demon whom she finds irresistible and from whose evil spell and vision she must now flee. She takes with her their terrifying and exquisite child, one of "a brood of children born knowing, able to stand and talk on the first day".
Rowan's attempt to escape Lasher and his pursuit of her and their child are at the heart of this extraordinary saga. It is a novel that moves around the globe, backward and forward through time, and between the human and demonic worlds. Its many voices - of women, of men, of demons and angels, present and past - haunt and enchant us. With a dreamlike power, the novel draws us through twilight paths, telling a chillingly hypnotic story of occult and spiritual aspirations and passion.

Part 2 - read them in order!

We are dropped right into the action of part one's finale. Roan and Lasher are on the run while Michael lies in a coma with the family looking on.

Mona, the chillingly clever and capable 13 year old is introduced; and here is my one dislike of the plot as she has it away with Michael and Michael was my hero of the first book; so this sullied him in my opinion.

However ignoring that, we learn Lasher's background and despite knowing all the awful things he's done, you do feel sorry for him as he had such a harsh childhood. Great sequel, am onto the third one now!
