TT #4 The Witching Hour


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  • After reading and falling in love with the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, I wanted to read the Mayfair Witches trilogy. The Witching Hour is the first novel in the series, and while I've just started reading it, I think I'll like it. The novel is a about the family of Mayfair witches and the mysterious Lasher, a spirit that has haunted them for generations. Here's my teaser:


    When he saw the woman lying there with her eyes open, he felt a catch in his throat. Her black hair was brushed out over the stained pillowcase. There was a flush of unfamiliar color in her cheeks.

    Did her lips move?
    "Lasher…" she whispered.

    This is probably my favorite of all Anne Rice's novels, and I pull it off the shelf and re-read it every two or three years. I'm sure you will love it - but hang on tight, you're in for quite a ride!!
