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.

"Rice offers a haunting look at the separate but equally intriguing worlds of witches and vampires�" (Publishers Weekly)
It was a good book to read. Not at all like Anne's other vampire books but just as good. I loved Merrick she is a cool character and very powerful.
A moving a tale as only Anne Rice can tell. The story line flows flawlessly
Graeme Malcolm, an exceptional reading, pleasant to listen too.
Vocal tones and inflections done with prefection.
This is the best one in the Vampire chonicles in quite some time. It left me wanting more, but intriqued enough to pick up the series again. I'd rate these characters as well-done as the original Vampire LeStadt.
I had only listened to/read one Anne Rice book before and had been pretty disappointed in it. But I decided to give her another chance, and I am so glad I did! This book is absolutely awesome! There is so much intrigue, darkness, and suspense in the book. It's characters were interesting and I was able to relate this book to the little I did know of her books. Great listen.
I especially liked the reader Graeme Malcolm's reading. I hope he will do more readings of Anne Rice's work.
No, because it seems as though she was picking previous characters and re-telling parts of their stories. Too tame for Anne Rice.
I don't know.
I like his voice; very pleasant.
Definitely not. She does not play a substantial role. She is mostly listening.
Writing a review for the entire series
... but not in reverse. I found some of the series to really stick with and really not gel with one another. I'm only giving this harsh criticism because it was marketed as a series, I truly think each book should stand on its own. Some of the stories, for me, were fantastic, others were just plain dull. If you are a truly Anne Rice fan then I'm assuming you will love all of these.
The characters were very easy to get to know. Narrator was awesome!
When Quin and Mona met.
All in all, great read.
Anne Rice is my version of fast food literature. Always tasty and probably a little bad for the soul, but entirely enjoyable!
This is the first audio book I was unable to finish. Slow and tedious, I stuck with it for around half the book then gave up. The main characters attitude towards Merrick I found just a little creepy and the story didn't seem to be going anywhere.
