Taltos

FROM OUR EDITORS

The lone member of an ancient species called the Taltos believes he is the last of his kind. When he hears rumors that another Taltos has been seen, he is propelled into the world of the Mayfair witches, a New Orleans dynasty besieged by ghosts, spirits, & their own dizzying powers.

ANNOTATION

Book Three in the spellbinding and seductive saga of the Mayfair dynasty of witches, by the bestselling author of The Vampire Chronicles and Memnoch the Devil. In a swirling universe filled with death and life, corruption and innocence, this mesmerizing novel takes readers on a wondrous journey back through the centuries to a civilization half-human, wholly mysterious, and at odds with mortality and immortality.

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Meet Mr. Ash, quiet-spoken, tall, unfailingly 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 powers 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. At the heart of the novel is the Talamasca, a secular order of psychic scholars, the only organization in existence which may understand Ash, his Taltos past, and the dilemma of the Mayfair witches. The story of the Mayfair family continues, moving from London to Donnelaith, Scotland, to New Orleans, back and forth through time - from the origins of the Taltos and their mythic Lost Land to the moral crises of the present day.

Rice's new novel continues the epic occult saga that began with The Witching Hour and Lasher. Taltos takes readers back through the centuries to a civilization part human and part of wholly mysterious origins, at odds with mortality and immortality, justice and guilt. A movie of Rice's bestseller, Interview with a Vampire, is scheduled for November release.
