In a swirling universe filled with death and life, corruption and innocence, this story takes us on a wondrous journey back through the centuries to a civilization half human, half of wholly mysterious origin, at odds with mortality and immortality, justice and guilt.

There is a second narrator I wasn't expecting and the transition back and forth is a little jolting. I read Taltos in the past so I purchased this primarily because Tim Curry was narrating. I wish it was unabridged...I have the advantage of already knowing the story and still had a hard time following the abridged version. I don't know if it would make sense at all to someone unfamiliar with the story.
I wish that I would have remembered that the book was abridged. It was a good refresher of the story, but would not worth it if I didn't know the story.
I love the reader, but this is not a stand alone novel. Either the whole novel or the editing job for the abridge left me feeling like I was missing a great deal of what was going on, and prevented me from caring about the characters at all.
If you're a fan of Anne Rice, this story will not disappoint. Interesting characters, story and Anne always finds a way to leave you a little turned on:) Her formula works!
Started this series several years ago... Recently picked up Lasher and finished it. Wanted to find out what happens in the end and switched to audio because I just knew I wouldn't have the time to sit and read. Good story
