Publisher's Summary

At Violin's center: a uniquely fascinating woman, Triana - who once dreamed of becoming a great musician - and the demonic fiddler Stefan, tormented ghost of a Russian aristocrat, who begins to prey upon her, using his magic violin first to enchant, then to dominate and draw her into a state of madness through the music she loves.But Triana understands the power of the music perhaps even more than does Stefan - and she sets out to resist Stefan and to fight not only for her sanity but for her life. The struggle draws them both into a terrifying supernatural realm where they find themselves surrounded by memories, horrors, and overwhelming truths.Violin flows abundant with the history, the drama, the invention, and the romantic intensity that have become synonymous with Anne Rice at her incomparable best.

Painful

I like Anne Rice's work, but this was long, drawn out and downright painful to have to sit through. The only reason that I finished this was that I kept telling myself that this is an Anne Rice bokk, it has to get better.

Gut wrenchingly bad...

Having struggled to read through the monotonous pace of the book, I downloaded the audio. Unfortunately, the pace I was hearing mentally translated all too well as I found myself fighting to stay awake through it. Not one of Anne's better books, but this is strictly my opinion. The Witching Hour and Cry to Heaven being my two favorites and I miss her as a fiction writer.
