Overview

Their haunted heritage and history have brought the Mayfair family great wealth, exercised from their New Orleans mansion, but such power no longer goes unnoticed or unchallenged. Reissue.

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 Rice . . .

Praise for Taltos

Taltos is the third book in a series known as the lives of the Mayfair witches. . .Their haunted heritage has brought the family great wealth, which is exercised from a New Orleans manse with Southern gentility; but of course such power cannot escape notice . . . or challenge . . . Rice is a formidable talent. . . . [Taltos]is a curious amalgam of gothic, glamour fiction, alternate history, and high soap opera.”The Washington Post Book World

“Anne Rice will live on through the ages of literature.”San Francisco Chronicle

“An intricate, stunning imagination.”Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Spellbinding . . . mythical . . . Anne Rice is a pure storyteller.”Cosmopolitan

“Beautifully written.”Kirkus Reivews (starred review)

“Her power of invention seems boundless. . . . She has made a masterpiece of the morbid, worthy of Poe's daughter. . . . It is hard to praise sufficiently the originality of Miss Rice.”The Wall Street Journal

The third volume in the saga of the Mayfair witches journeys through time to explore an ancient civilization of mysterious origins that finds itself at odds with mortality and immortality, justice and guilt
