WITCHING HOUR

by Rice Anne

Condition: See description


New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1990. First Edition 8vo, publisher’s original black cloth over boards, the spine lettered in gilt, in the decorated dustjacket. 965 pp. A fine copy, as pristine. FIRST EDITION. “A huge, hypnotic novel of witchcraft and the occult through four centuries. Demonstrating her gift for spellbinding storytelling and the creation of legend, Anne Rice makes real a great dynasty of witches-a family given to poetry and to incest, to murder and to philosophy; a family that, over the ages, is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being.”

The Witching Hour (Lives of the Mayfair Witches, #1) The line of the Mayfair Witches is a long one, rife with sin and curses, blessings and power, full of drama and all along guided by a strange spirit controlled by the matriarch of the clan. Locus Award for Best Dark Fantasy/Horror Novel (1991)
