The legend-building storytelling power that has won Anne Rice her millions of devoted readers is enthrallingly present in Taltos. Her new novel continues the epic of the Mayfair witches, the hypnotic saga of the occult that began with The Witching Hour and Lasher. Meet Mr. Ash, quiet-spoken, tall, unflailingly kind-sole survivor of an ancient species, the Taltos-thriving among humankind as he has always done, now the head of a great corporate empire. As the novel 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, long before the coming of the Romans, Ash ruled his clan. At once he is propelled into the world of Rowan Mayfair, and into the mysteries of the Mayfair family-the New Orleans dynasty of witches forever besieged by ghosts, spirits, and the dizzying power of his own species-a family 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, even survival.
