'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.
“Compelling... Sensuous... Engrossing... Rich”

“Vintage Rice - lush prose, dense atmosphere, steamy sex, gothic tension”
