by | Read by Derek Jacobi

Horror • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

Die-hard fans of Anne Rice will likely prefer the full text of this novel, which straddles the Vampire Chronicles and the Mayfair Witches, but this abridgment serves its purpose and leaves no obvious gaps. Sir Derek Jacobi narrates with intensity and sensitivity. He presents his characters with distinct voice and inflection, as well as personality. He never deviates from the clear narrative voice, which he embues with a restrained formality that suits the character who tells this story of magic and intrigue. Jacobi's voice is sensual and warm, cold and detached, and anything in between that the story calls for. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
