A successful film maker, painter, playwright, and best-selling author, Clive Barker commands an astonishing range of creative talent. Drawing upon the literary genius that produced Sacrament, he returns to the realm of the supernatural with this intriguing saga of two families, one human and the other divine. One of America's wealthiest and most influential families since the Civil War, the Gearys harbor terrible secrets.

The Barbarossa family's roots are far more ancient and ethereal, but they are bound to the Gearys by a shared history of murder, insanity, and adultery. When Rachel Geary and Galilee, the seductive prince of the Barbarossa clan, fall in love, they unleash powerful enmities that could destroy both dynasties. Shorter and more conventional than some of Barker's other work, this novel is especially rich with complex, passionate, three-dimensional characters, lush settings, and elegant language. Paul Hecht's powerful narration gives added depth to this dark, sumptuous novel.

    " I liked parts of this but it felt like the book took forever to get started. The story is fragmented and meant to be but as a result you take a long time to actually want to know whats happening with the characters. By a little after halfway through the book starts to have and hold more interest. "

    " Clive barker sometimes just misses the excellent mark and this Is another example. Great ideas, the faint images of what could be masterful but doesn't quite deliver. "

    " Finish the series Mr. Barker! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina | 1/1/2014

    " I just re read this and it is still fabulous. You get so lost in someone elses world, there is nothing better "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brian Goodwin | 12/24/2013

    " Dissapointing. This is nothing like Barker's usual excellent work. Fans of horror should avoid this title, it is more like a family history and did not appeal to me at all. The only positive comment that I can make is that it has a nice cover! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 12/16/2013

    " Kinda Clive Barkers coming out novel. I thought Galilee was representative of Barker to some extent when I read it. Kinda boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 12/11/2013

    " Much to love. This is the novel I would have my wife read to understand why I enjoy Clive Barker. The other stuff would worry her so... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 India | 12/9/2013

    " reminded my of The Witching Hour by Anne Rice but with less supernatural and darkness.. but still unnatural and with darkness.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mars | 11/28/2013

    " I find Clive Barker to be rather hit or miss - this one was pretty dull compared to others I've read. The characters weren't very likable, and I thought it dragged quite a bit. Wouldn't read again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Coach A | 7/3/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. I thought the love story was amazing and the flashbacks. I think there may have been a little to much sex in the book however. It is probably my favorite Barker book but you really have to be open minded to read it. It deals with homosexuality and incest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitzi | 4/7/2013

    " I liked this one, but it REALLY leaves you hanging at the end, and there is no sequel yet. :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 2/24/2013

    " I love Clive Barker. This book really surprised me. It was very, very different from his "usual" brew of fantasy laced with horror. This was a ghostly romance and I really enjoyed the ride. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 11/13/2012

    " Great book! It took awhile to get into it (hence the 3) but once I did it was really great. The characters were interesting and the use of humor was excellent, not too much or too forced. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Imajicaman | 9/3/2012

    " Clive uses some great prose to tell this tale and hopefully the planned sequel will earn a five star rating. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 amuse | 7/30/2012

    " Kept checking the title page to make sure it was a Romance instead of just a boring narrative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beckey | 7/16/2012

    " A mixed bag of different genres tossed together in a unusual book... It's one of those books that I am on the fence about, there is some good spots and there is some weird parts ... Ok read overall "

    " One of my favorite Clive Barker books. And one of the only family sagas and romance books that I love. Probably because he so expertly mixed it with fantasy, horror, the supernatural and legends. "
