I recently read the Drake Sister novels by Christine Feehan. I have never read anything by her and I actually liked them. I am not into vampires at all and I was wondering if someone could recommend any books simliar to the Drake novels. I like the fact the sisters could practice magic and they were more along the lines of witches. I also enjoy books with ghosts; I have read a lot of Heather Graham. If you have any suggestions i would appreicate it :P

The Witching Hour by Anne Rice is one of my all time favorite books. Excellent plot and characters. Also Yasmine Galernon has good series about 3 sisters. One is witch, one a vampire and one a were cat. Darkling, Changling and so on.

I haven't read the Drake sisters yet but Nora Roberts has a trilogy about witches- FAce the Fire is one title but I'm drawing a blank on the other 2. she also has a Key trilogy but they're not witches..forgot what they are. not vampires either. they were pretty good and had magic in them. someone in the paranormal forum may have some better suggestions.

I don't know any witch type ones. But her psychic series is really good. All the books have Game in the title. 

Caite London has a trilogy about triplit sisters with psychic powers. 

I believe Cheyenne McCray has a series with Witches.

My favorite witch series (which also includes vampires and weres) is Kim Harrison's The Hollows series. The order goes as follows:

  • Dead Witch Walking
  • The Good, The Bad, and the Undead
  • Every Which Way But Dead
  • Fistful of Charms
  • For a Few Demons More
  • The Outlaw Demon Wails
  • White Witch, Black Curse
  • Black Magic Sanction (2010)

This falls into the urban fantasy genre. There are some short stories that go in between the books but aren't necessary to follow the series.
