I almost didn't finish the first one in this series, took forever...thought i'd give this one a shot....hated it..i never even attempted the 3rd one....they just seemed to drone on and on...quite boring actually...i like anne rice but was disappointed with this series.
This book was "OKAY". I'm invested now after reading the first book in the series, The Witching Hour but I have to say that it dragged and I was glad when it ended AND I am going to put off starting the 3rd in the series to give myself a break.
The story is different and offers some interesting characters that you do care about. However, the book drags with seemingly inane details leaving me wanting more on the character plotlines. I am no prude but I also find this book (and the series) a bit inappropriately graphic (ie disjointed sexual scenes that really don't add anything to the story).
I did not enjoy this book as much as I have enjoyed other books by this author.
Loved all of the witches books.
Rice at her best as she brings the Mayfair witches to life...one of my personal picks in the series...great writing...
