Pros:Keeps you reading, wondering what the secret of this family really is

Cons:jumps back and forth, at times confusing

The Bottom Line: If you like witches and spirits, this is a good read. It continues with the 2nd & 3rd book Lasher and Taltos.


The Witching Hour...by Anne Rice, I have never read an Anne Rice before this book. At first it took me awhile to get into this book, reading it here and there, but then I finally got the time to sit down and enjoy a few chapters, and I couldn't put it down.

This book is about the Mayfair family, a family of witches. Endless family, endless witches. I say this because there are so many all over the world. All of them are close to each other, and know each others business and personal life. They love each other very much, so much that they have sexual relationships with in the family. Doing this they keep the witching gene's and power more powerful. This first novel of the Mayfairs is all about the family. Divided by where they live and how much they believe in different things. The women of the Mayfair family are more "important" then the men. They hold more power and they give birth. The women of the Mayfair family are designated to receive the powers of "the man," known as Lasher. That is one woman per generation. Each generation seems to get stronger and stronger.

The last designee was sent away from the family when she was last born. This was done to prevent her from receiving the "curse", as some call it, of the Mayfair women.

As the story ended, I wondered what is going on, why did it end this way, who what, where, why???? Why would someone write this book and have it end this way. I thinking of how I would have ended it and wondering what the family is doing now. Then I find out there is another book to follow....Lasher.....

My first Anne Rice book and I loved it. Her descriptions and passion in this story. When she would describe the feelings and passion with some of her characters, I could almost feel it myself. Like I was actually that person. I felt that she did a wonderful job explaining the family and what the family was like. She describes and explains in full detail about just about each and every Mayfair there was. Her jumping around from different times, was kind of confusing at times. But the passion of this family was unbelievable.
