The Witching Hour


Formats & editions


'Morbid delights, sexually charged passages and wicked, wild tragedy' - Publishers Weekly

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.
