Staff Reviews

Shifting focus from her usual Vampire Chronicles, Rice walks us through the doors of a New Orleans manor and introduces us to the long line of Mayfair Witches. With a sophisticated blend of the preternatural, macabre, and dramatic, we explore the sprawling history of the Mayfair family tree and discover the origins of the women's power as well as the ominous male entity that has haunted them for generations.

— From Dean


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."
