'Erotic... Eerie... Horrifying... A tight tale of the occult in present-day New Orleans' - Denver Post
At the centre of Anne Rice's brilliant novel, the beautiful Rowan Mayfair, queen of the coven, must flee from the darkly brutal, yet irresistible demon known as Lasher. With a dreamlike power, this wickedly seductive entity draws us through twilight paths, telling a chillingly hypnotic story of spiritual aspirations and passion...
“Behind all the velvet drapes and gossamer winding sheets, this is an old-fashioned family saga - Rice's descriptive writing is so opulent it almost begs to be read by candlelight”
Washington Post Book World
“The sequel and conclusion to Rice's The Witching Hour shows Rice at her best... The novel lights up with rocket blast”
