You’ll love this collection of three Anne Rice favorites.
The Witching Hour: Demonstrating once again her gift
for spellbinding storytelling, Anne Rice makes real a family of witches—a
family given to poetry and incest, to murder and philosophy, a family that is
itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous and seductive being.
Lasher: Now, Anne Rice brings us again—even more
magically—into the midst of the dynasty of witches she introduced in The
At the center of Lasher: the brilliant and beautiful
Rowan Mayfair, queen of the coven, and Lasher, the darkly compelling demon whom
she finds irresistible and from whose evil spell and vision she must now flee.
She takes with her their terrifying and exquisite child, one of “a brood of
children born knowing, able to stand and talk on the first day.”
Rowan’s attempt to escape Lasher and his pursuit of her and
their child are at the heart of this extraordinary saga. It is a novel that
moves around the globe, backward and forward through time, and between the
human and demonic worlds. Its many voices - of women, of men, of demons and
angels, present and past—haunt and enchant us. With a dreamlike power, the
novel draws us through twilight paths, telling a chillingly hypnotic story of
occult and spiritual aspirations and passion.
Taltos: “What can I confess? I’m Ashlar. I’m a Taltos.”
When Ashlar learns that another Taltos has been seen, he is
suddenly propelled into the haunting world of the Mayfair family, the New Orleans
dynasty of witches forever besieged by ghosts, spirits, and their own dizzying
powers. For Ashlar knows this powerful clan is intimately linked to the
heritage of the Taltos. In a swirling universe filled with death and life,
corruption and innocence, this mesmerizing novel takes us on a wondrous journey
back through the centuries to a civilization half-human, of wholly mysterious
origin, at odds with mortality and immortality, justice and guilt. It is an
enchanted, hypnotic world that could only come from the imagination of Anne
