Publisher's Summary

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.

Simply stunning and exceptionally well read.

A really good book from start to finish. It can seem a little repetitive in parts, but not so bad, as to put you off the book. The narration was outstanding, a voice that is easy to listen to, and really pulls you into the storyline. I found I couldn't turn it off. Oftentimes listening into the early hours instead of getting my truly needed beauty sleep. Trust me, I need as much of that as I can get. But Kate managed to keep me rivited to my Earphones. Often to the annoyance of my family. Overall, a fantastic audio listen made all the better by the narration of Kate Reading. A highly recommended Audiol Book. Happy Audiobooking.
