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.

    " I read the anne rice witching series a long time ago - and found it hard to put them down. The books are pretty crazy though - not for everyone. "

    " The third book in the Mayfair Trilogy that finally reveals the origin of Rowan's child and presents as confusing outcome. I enjoyed it almost as much as the original book, but much of the supernatural suspense is done away with. "

    " Anne Rice's "Lives of the Mayfair Witches" series swept me right in. I was obsessed with The Witching Hour while reading it, but was incredibly disappointed in the ending. A friend told me I'd be more satisfied if I moved o to the second book, Lasher, and she was right. I decided to plug through and finish with Taltos. The writing is choppy and the tale fragmented - I just got through it to know how it ended, but the true magic in this story is contained within the first book of the trilogy, The Witching Hour. "

    " Love the witching series, the new (old) creature who barely knows itself...the family of incredible witches... "
