2nd book in the Mayfair Witches books. I really loved this one because you find out what Lasher really is. If you like Anne Rice books you HAVE to read all the Mayfair Witches books.

When I read a book that pulls me into the middle of it, to the point I can see, hear, taste, smell all that is happening, that's a book I want to read again and again. This entire trilogy had me from beginning to end and does so every time I read them.

This book was "OKAY". I'm invested now after reading the first book in the series, The Witching Hour but I have to say that it dragged and I was glad when it ended AND I am going to put off starting the 3rd in the series to give myself a break.

The story is different and offers some interesting characters that you do care about. However, the book drags with seemingly inane details leaving me wanting more on the character plotlines. I am no prude but I also find this book (and the series) a bit inappropriately graphic (ie disjointed sexual scenes that really don't add anything to the story).

I enjoyed the luchiousness of the first book of this series, but this second one had many pages of bla bla blas that just needed to be turned to get on with the story. If you're interested in a tale about witches, that doesn't dwell too much about their abilities, let alone use them but upon their genetics, this is the 3 story book tale for you.

Loved this! It has more action & sex, less detail than the first (though I loved that one also). It was definitely my favorite in the series.

It was alright - I was a little disappointed - yet I bought the 3rd, so how disappointed was I really?

Before browsing on Paper Back Swap, I was unaware that the Mayfair witches saga continued past the first book. Rice does a wonderful job introducing new characters into the story and expanding on the already well developed characters that we already know and love. It is an absolute MUST READ for anyone who enjoyed the first book.

Incredible imagination used to create an intricate web of characters that spans generations. Can't wait to read the third book, Taltos.

Rice brings us again - even more magically - into the midst of the dynasty of witches she introduced in The Witching Hour. At the center: the brilliant and beautiful Rowan Mayfair, queen of the coven, and Lasher, the darkly compelling demon whom she finds irresistible and from whose evil spell and vision she must now flee. She takes with her their terrifying and exquisite child, one of "a brood of children born knowing, able to stand and talk on the first day." Rowan's attempt to escape Lasher and his pursuit of her and their child are at the heart of this extraordinary saga. It is a novel that moves around the globe, backward and forward through time, and between the human and demonic worlds. Its many voices - of women, of men, of demons and angels, present and past - haunt and enchant us. With a dreamlike power, the novel draws us through twilight paths, telling a chillingly hypnotic story of occult and spiritual aspirations and passion.

Rice's new work brings readers once more into the midst of the dynasty of witches introduced in her phenomenal runaway bestseller The Witching Hour. The novel moves around the globe, backward and forward in time, and between the worlds to tell a story of aspiration and passion.

High hopes for this book after reading The Witching Hour and I think that was the problem. It was a really hard book to follow but I think she did a good job, a lot of filler at times that you wonder about but still gave the story line a perspective. Richly detailed and excellent in history. No one can do the south better.

I thought the Mayfair Witches series were fairly creapy at first...I am not sure why they struck me that way because I love the Vampire Chronicles, however if you can make it throgh the first book then the other Mayfair books are much more intresting.

Suspenseful completion (?) to the Mayfair witchs' history. Lasher's background made credible under Anne Rice's excellent writing. Less eroticism in this book than the first. More surprises and violence also. Lasher, as villain seems formidable, unstoppable, so it's interesting to see how the author handles the ending. At the very end, I was dissappointed since it left everything up in the air but their must be a sequel. I did find Rowan's healing unbelievable but I can't say more without giving away the plot of the book. Overall, a good read but not as good as the first. Worth reading though with its suspense, mystery and characters not usually known to us.

This book is #2 in Anne Rice's series of the Mayfair witches, and is the sequel to "The Witching Hour," which is in my opinion the best book she has ever written, and possibly one of the best fiction novels I have ever read. I am no Anne Rice fan, so please don't think I am gushing over her talents. I am begrudgingly admitting this, wishing it were any other author. "The Witching Hour (Book 1)" seriously rocks.

This book carries the story well from Book 1. It has a haunting storyline, so it has that same eerie hang-in-your-thoughts quality as the first book. However, please let me urge you, if you have read The Witching Hour and loved it, don't read this book. Do NOT read this book. Just close Book 1 and wonder; don't do it to yourself. Reading this book will make you read Book 3, and god help you when you read Book 3. I know I haven't been the same since.
