This is the start of the Mayfair witches series and is the most eloquent book I've read from Anne Rice.

The first book of Anne Rice's Mayfair Witches series. I loved this series and the Vampire Chronicles.

Anne Rice is my favortie author and "The Witching Hour" is my favorite book she has written. In this book, she begins telling us of the legacy of the Mayfair women. It is the first in a series. It always amazes me how authors are able to put together so many small details to help bring you into the story. Rice takes the reader through the centuries as she describes the different generations of the Mayfair women. There is a portion of the book that tends to drag for awhile, but for the most part the reader can not wait to find out what happens next and what the end result will be. If you've read Anne Rice books before, or are interested in reading one, this is one of her best. I would also suggest reading "The Feast of All Saints". I have lent that book out to someone and should have it back sometime soon for me to list. "Cry to Heaven" is great too. I actually have that one listed if anyone is interested, AND of course....I have "Interview with the Vampire" which is a must read for Anne Rice fans.

A book to sink into and read. The details, history and richness of characters,homes, relatives and time frame is excellent. A haunting book that will keep you reading till it is done and going out for the next in line!

Anne Rice is a great story teller and very spooky, I loved the book except the last 4 or 5 chapters. I lost interest and as with many books the ending seemed more rushed and unsatisfying than I expected from the beginning of this marvelous story. Still I wonder what next and I'm ready to know more.
