Mostly disappointed

Struggled with this title. I have loved Rice's work in the past but this felt very novice in comparison. The best part of the story comprises the last few chapters. Unfortunately I can't recommend this book. McLarty's performance is good & easy enough to listen to.

Drivel

I've loved Ann Rice for years but this is possibly the most boring book I've ever listened to.
Worst of all I downloaded the second book at the same time.
It only gets worse.
The audio doesn't make things any better with the most laughable English Accent.
Very disappointing 😱

Really good

very good, though difficult to like the seemingly forced voice switches between characters. that was the only mildly irritating thing

Brilliant descriptive writing

This book is so good it’s my GO TOO book when I’m low, the fabulous voice of Ron and Anne’s writing marry with such rich perfection .
You absolutely must have this book and it’s sequel The wolves of midwinter... very beautiful exciting books.
