Since moving to Mystic Harbor, Maine, I've made it my life's mission to avoid Reese Blackburn at all costs. Sure, he has cheekbones that could cut glass, not to mention bedroom eyes that could melt any girl into a puddle on the floor. Too bad that doesn't change the fact he's completely stab-worthy. When a fun night out on the town turns deadly, I quickly discover the quaint little hamlet of Mystic Harbor houses more than sandy beaches and adorable B&Bs. Beneath the New England charm rests a world where shifters, demons, vampires, and angelic hunters all vie for power.

It was good and so was the narrator but for the first half of the story I had to turn the speed up to 1.05. she performed well though just a bit slow with too many pauses. I am definitely getting the next book.

Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling, Anne Rice makes real for us a great dynasty of four centuries of witches - a family given to poetry and incest, murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being called Lasher who haunts the Mayfair women....

First half was long and drawn out. Hard to follow all if the back story. Overall I enjoyed the book though.

Not much of a story. Short, boring, and lazy. I enjoyed the other books. This felt rushed.

Great story but they switched the narrator. The new narrator should have listened to the previous one so that she could pronounce the names the same. She butchered the names and left me confused as to who she was talking about. It took away from the story and performance.
