Publisher's Summary

At the center is the beautiful, unconquerable witch, Merrick. She is a descendant of the gens de colors libres, a cast derived from the black mistresses of white men, a society of New Orleans octoroons and quadroons, steeped in the lore and ceremony of voodoo, who reign in the shadowy world where the African and the French - the white and the dark - intermingle. Her ancestors are the Great Mayfair Witches, of whom she knows nothing - and from whom she inherits the power and magical knowledge of a Circe.Into this exotic New Orleans realm comes David Talbot, hero, storyteller, adventurer, almost mortal vampire, visitor from another dark realm. It is he who recounts Merrick's haunting tale - a tale that takes us from the New Orleans of the past and present to the jungles of Guatemala, from the Mayan ruins of a century ago to ancient civilizations not yet explored.Anne Rice's richly told novel weaves an irresistible story of two worlds: the witches' world and the vampires' world, where magical powers and otherworldly fascinations are locked together in a dance of seduction, death, and rebirth.

Narrator killed the story!

I honestly tried over a dozen times to get through this audio book but I eventually had to tap out! The narrator made this the most painful story to listen to. I deleted it without first fishing the story and just mined on to the next bookšŸ˜£

Great book but....

ann Rice is an amazing writer and this book is amazing. However, I had a huge problem with the narrator in this story. he was muffled and quiet and not clear throughout the story. there was times that I has to hit the rewind button. I do not think it was his I just think it was the quality of the recording. the producer of this book should have known this and fixed it before this ever went to production!!
