So its been a while since I've had time to sit down and update this website of mine, though during this period of neglect I have still managed to read a book or two. One of my recent forays into the world of fiction has been through the mind of Anne Rice. Specifically the Mayfair chronicles, starting with The Witching Hour. This, of course was written before her I found Jesus period which I prefer. In this engrossing and hypnotic tale of witchcraft and the occult spanning four centuries, we meet a great dynasty of witches--a family given to poetry and incest, to murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is haunted by a powerful, dangerous and seductive spirit.
Better known for her works on the Vampire Chronicles, and more specifically Interview With a Vampire, Rice demonstrates, once again, her gift for spellbinding storytelling and the creation of legend. Warning: It is really long and descriptive and often disturbing...but its so amazingly well put together that you get lost in the story. Recomended!
