"Rice writes with a captivating elegance and a mordant wit. She can create fear in the dark but her most dangerous gift is that the shivers sent down the spine are most sensual" Literary Review "Rice knows what her readers want - scene after scene of magic and conjuring, with a liberal sprinkling of horror and eroticism" Times Literary Supplement "Rice's writing is wonderfully imaginative and as creepily splendid as a hot-house orchid" Sunday Times "Rice's witches are sensual glamorous beings, bisexual and hedonistic, whose power is a knife that cuts both ways" GQ "Sensuous... A steaming brew of vampires and witches" Los Angeles Tmes
