3358423Title: The Witching Hour
Author:  Anne Rice
Published: Published March 1st 1993 by Turtleback Books (first published 1990)
Length: 1038 Pages

Goodreads Summary: On the veranda of a great New Orleans house, now faded, a mute and fragile woman sits rocking. And the witching hour begins…

Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling and the creation of legend, Anne Rice makes real for us a great dynasty of witches – a family given to poetry and incest, to murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being.

A hypnotic novel of witchcraft and the occult across four centuries, by the spellbinding, bestselling author of The Vampire Chronicles.

How I Got It: I bought it.

When I Got It: A few years ago.

Why I Want To Read It: I’ve always had an interest in witches and witchcraft.  I have read a few Anne Rice novel’s and enjoyed them so I decided to collect this series too (Lives of the Mayfair Witches).  I haven’t read it yet because it is over 1000 pages.  But I have added it to my Halloweeny TBR and I hope to start reading it after I finish  my current read.
