Anne Rice (Author of the truly beautiful and poetic dark literature of The Vampire Chronicles, Lives of the Mayfair Witches and The Wolf Gift Chronicles)
Interview With The Vampire Novel. My senior year reading project was based on this book.
The Witching hour by Anne Rice, first in the "lives of the Mayfair witches" series, WONDERFUL (yet large,lol) book! Totally worth the time spent reading it. Anne Rice creates a world that is like no other.
