Publisher Comments:

Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding stoyrtelling, Anne Rice makes real a family of witches--a family given to poetry and incest, to murder and philsophy, a family that is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous and seductive being.

"Unfolds like a poisonous lotus blossom redolent with luxurious evil."

Reverend Mother, January 12, 2015 (view all comments by Reverend Mother)
While Anne Rice's writing style is usually too gushy and overly emotional, I found that this book has quite a bit less of that, and that the story itself is good enough to mitigate what there is of it. For Rice fans the Talamasca is familiar and the best part of this book is their study of the Mayfair family that spans centuries. The story is complex and suspenseful and full of great characters. This is the only Anne Rice novel I kept when thinning out my book collection and I highly recommend it. There are two sequels that aren't quite as good as this one.
