This is a great continuation of the Mayfair Witches. It's predominantly about Uncle Julian's and Lasher's story. The travel through time isn't quite as vivid as the lives of Rice's vampires, but it's still quite good.
Kate Reading's performance is excellant. She has an extraordinary vocal range. I frequently forget that there is only a woman, and not a woman and a man narrating the story. She is definitely in my top 10, if not my top 5 favorite narrators, male, or female, of all time.
Note: There is a lot of incest in the Lives of the Mayfair Witches. It's a Mayfair thing. If incest is very disturbing to you, even when in a fictional work, then you won't like this series. While I don't cotton to incest, I am open minded, especially in regards to works of fiction. Regardless, while I found one character's approach to incest quite amusing, I also found parts of the books content concerning incest very disturbing. It just creeped me out. Perhaps it was meant to. It hasnt repelled me enough to prevent me from continuing on with the series. In fact I'm currently listening to the next book, Taltos, now. Once I finish it I will have completed all of Rice's Mayfair books.

We are dropped right into the action of part one's finale. Roan and Lasher are on the run while Michael lies in a coma with the family looking on.
Mona, the chillingly clever and capable 13 year old is introduced; and here is my one dislike of the plot as she has it away with Michael and Michael was my hero of the first book; so this sullied him in my opinion.
However ignoring that, we learn Lasher's background and despite knowing all the awful things he's done, you do feel sorry for him as he had such a harsh childhood. Great sequel, am onto the third one now!

Loved this 2nd book in 'The Mayfair Witches' So richly detailed and so engrossing. I read this book years ago and it is just as good on audio. Of to download Taltos, the 3rd book now.
