In this engrossing and hypnotic tale of witchcraft and the occult spanning four centuries, we meet a great dynasty of witches--a family given to poetry and incest, to murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is haunted by a powerful, dangerous and seductive being. From Goodreads.
Anne Rice is one of my favourite authors and I have read some of her books but as it is over the last twenty years I can't always remember which I have read. This one I read about 6 years ago.
It is a very worthy reread. It is an epic family saga which doesn't end after this book. Be prepared for dark magic, it is no light humorous witchy read.
