Unabridged Audiobook

Duration: 49 hours 57 minutes


"[A] huge and sprawling tale of horror."
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.

    I know and love the book, off course - so to have it read is hard, as you know what it's like, you've created the characters in your head and the sound of them...... but this narrator is magnificent! I give her my best of recommendations!! I feel as if the story is told by all the characters; she understands the story, she makes it even more tangible and interesting! she speaks English, American with Dutch accent, with Irish sound and sing - and she makes me believe the passages told by a doctor!! She is truly a narrator!

    Good story, good narration. It kept my attention, and that's pretty good for an over-50 hour story
