Meet Mr. Ash, soft-spoken, tall, unfailingly
kind—and the sole survivor of an ancient species, the Taltos. He is thriving
among humankind as he has always done—as the head of a great corporate empire.
As Taltos opens, he is stunned to
learn from an old and mysterious friend that another Taltos has been seen, in
the very same Scottish glen where centuries ago, Ash ruled his clan long before
the coming of the Romans. At once he is propelled into the world of Rowan
Mayfair and the mysteries of the Mayfair family, a New Orleans dynasty of
witches forever besieged by ghosts, spirits, and the dizzying powers of his own
species. The Mayfair family has always been intimately involved with the
heritage of the Taltos—a family of unique, brilliant, and troubled souls
struggling as they have for centuries to use both science and magic in their
battle for greatness … survival.
In a swirling universe filled with
death and life, corruption and innocence, Taltos
takes us on a wondrous journey back through the centuries to a civilization that’s
half human, half of wholly mysterious origin—a civilization at odds with
mortality and immortality, justice and guilt. Download and start listening now!
