On the verandah of a great New Orleans house, now faded, a mute and fragile woman sits rocking. And the witching hour begins . . .
Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling and the creation of legend, Anne Rice makes real for us a great dynasty of witches - a family given to poetry and incest, to murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being.
A hypnotic novel of witchcraft and the occult across four centuries, 'The Witching Hour' could only have been written by the spellbinding bestselling author of 'The Vampire Chronicles'.
