What makes Rice so fascinating is her obsession with this theme and her great good sense never to discuss it in terms of nonfiction.

Kirkus

on Apr 09 2012

The entity is by far the liveliest invention in the novel and the reader is left cliffhanging as this rather benign energy-being--fully (and erotically) empowered--is seen running off to Switzerland with Rowan. A writing mishmash, but a strong story stamps itself onto the brain.

Reviewed by Sparky on Apr 29 2014

Since starting Fangs for the Fantasy I have never read a book I have enjoyed less than Witching Hour. Renee likes this book and wants it to score far higher. To try and find some midpoint between us we’ve gone for 2.5 Fangs.

Good
Reviewed by Leontine on Aug 17 2011

Anne Rice doesn't give me conventional. Not in the characters, not in the romance, not in eroticism or in the plotlines. I was spellbound by it all from start to finish!
