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....

I was really enjoying the story of the Mayfair Witches and especially the character or Rowan. But then it all went south at about 3/4 of the way through. I don’t want to spoil things, but I feel her character just does a 180 and betrays everything and the story goes loopy. The ending tries to be “deeper” than the plot can support. I mean I spent FIFTY HOURS listening to this thing and was left feeling like I should have been listening to several other books during that span instead. Disappointed.
