While browsing a Borders Paperback section looking for interesting titles to buy my wife for her Birthday one year I came upon 'Wither's Rain' which I later found out was a sequel story to the first entitled 'Wither'.
Not knowing who John Passarella was at the time, neither of us read the book and honestly it sat in the pile of 'to read' books for almost two years collecting dust...
Browsing a different Borders I came upon 'Wither' and without a moments hesitation picked it up because of its familiarity. This was yesterday. Today, John Passarella has a lifetime fan! 'Wither' is by far one the BEST stories I've ever read.
As an avid reader of all genres I can honestly say that this book was not only written extremely well but it was fun, thought provoking, and so well developed that you will fall in love with the characters overnight. I know I did.

If you are looking for a good horror story to curl up and read, then you will want to pick up Wither. John Passarella can weave a good story and create some full-bodied characters. I recomend checking this book out, you will enjoy it. It is worth a getting read over and over as well.

Passarella turns the mythos of witches on its ear. He writes one of the most engaging Witches in Wendy Ward that I have ever come across. Steeping himself well in wiccan knowledge he makes this tale of horror all too real. I could not stop reading!

I really don't have all that much to say about this book other than the fact that it's one the best horror books you will probably ever read. Anyone who hasn't read this is missing out on a great story with wonderful characters that bring the story to life like few other books do.
Do yourself a favor and buy or get this at your local library, you won't regret it i promise you.

All I can say is I was looking for something new and have now read Wither & Withers Rain 2 times apiece! I cannot wait for Withers Legacy to come out. I love fantasy fiction like Anne Rice, Laurell Hamilton, Stephen King, Koontz, Buffy, Angel, charmed ect ect ect. So if you like this stuff I cant push these books on you enough.Read them read them read them!! You wont be able to put them down. As a matter of fact I think I'll go read them again!!!!lololol! Can you feel me pushing?? My best freind and reading buddy is an Oprahs bookclub kind of reader and SHE loved them too.They are for everyone...especially me!

Wither is one of the greatest horror novels for years and 100s of positive reviews for this novel back up that this is so. Still 'certain' negative reviews pop up now and again for even the greatest of novels and all that i can say is that they don't know outstanding quality even if it was to slap them in the face. I was extremely lucky to come across John Passarella and his first novel Wither (thank the lord for the Official Buffy Magazine UK), but since discoverering 'THE FELLA, John Passarella' i have never regretted this.
John captivates you in this fantastic tale of an ancient Witches coven leaded by the blood chilling Wither. I don't want to give too much of the plot away as this would be impossible as John delivers heart racing twists and supprises into Withers superbly original plot.
All i can say is 'BUY THIS BOOK', you wont regret it. Ignore any negative reviews as these are very rare. Whats one bad review against heap loads of positive ones?

after all these fabulous reviews, i was eager to get my hands on this book. now i'm just glad i didn't pay for it.
ok, interesting concept: three modern women (in one case, a little girl) begin experiencing the same nightmares of life in 17th century new england. oh my! they seem to have something to do with the "town witches" hung exactly 300 years ago. too bad they weren't burnded at the stake!! they just happened to have been transformed by their leader into evil flying creatures who need to feed every hundred years. and our three gals just happen to be their idea of halloween dinner.
still, i kept reading. i was hoping something exciting would eventually occur. no such luck. there was nothing to make me at all interested in the characters. i absolutely hated the professor (karen), who seemed to think that her boyfriend (& father of her unborn child) was beneath her because he was "only" a contractor. wendy was so one-dimensional--"oooh, i'm a witch! i'm so different! i cast spells in the nude!!"--that i just kept thinking SO WHAT??? and the little girl (abby) just seemed to be tossed in because witches come in threes, right?
the end was so ridiculous, it seemed like even the author was tired of these people. midnight (the witching hour, of course!) came and went, and with it, convenient ends to the icky flying nightmares.
OR WAS IT??!!?
ah, the author is hoping to make it into a tv movie: pg-13 all the way, with two naked "rituals" in the woods (could be shot from the back--no full frontal, now), and one fade-to-black sex scene to spice up the previews!!
save your money and your time. skip this one, and it's inevitable sequel.
