Anne Rice at her best!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:masterfully written

Cons:too many names and genealogical relations

The Bottom Line: I recomend without any doubt; it's a great book.


The Witching Hour was my first book by Anne Rice and I couldn't have chosen better. With book prequels, Lasher and Taltos, is alone one of the best Rice's books, full of mistery, secrets and supernatural events. Are you looking for the typical and full of 'clichés' gothic novel? Well, The Witching Hour is a lot more than just that.

With an atmosphere of witchcraft and occult, the action begins in the agitated New Orleans and continues in the sunny Califórnia, where we meet our main character. Rowan Mayfair is an attractive neurosurgeo, respected by her colleagues and pacients (actually, she´s so appraised that some believe she has magic powers). One night, in one of her usual boat 'get-away-from-stress' escapes, Rowan finds a floating man in coma and... brings him to life. Magic? Profissional competence? Both and none. From the moment she discovers to be the only heir of a very old and powerful matriachal family and gets involved with Michael(the man she rescued), we witness a surprising and original story.

Anne Rice has a taste for luxury and than is easy to discern in the the scenario descriptions. She likes to put a lit bit of beauty in each description and that fact, mixed with an aura of everpresent sensuality, makes the reading of this book an enchanted one, where we are prisioners of Rice's wonder world.

I recomend.
