    Description

    "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)

    "Captivating...Taltos is a wonderful offering...The best she's done....There is a new member of Anne Rice's macabre family of monsters, and he's probably the loneliest, most melancholy creature on earth....Rice keeps the mystic fires burning strong." (The Milwaukee Journal)

    "Spellbinding...Mythical...Anne Rice is a pure storyteller." (Cosmopolitan)

    "Rice is a stylish writer...What works best throughout the book is the magical collusion of the real and the mythical, the intermingling of the Taltos and witches with ordinary mortals in the present-day world." (New York Newsday)

    "Beautifully written." [Kirkus Reviews (starred)]

    What can I confess? I'm Ashlar. I'm a Taltos. 

    It's centuries since I've seen one single other member of my own species. Oh, there have been others. I've heard of them, chased after them, and in some instances almost found them. Mark, I say almost. But not in centuries have I touched my own flesh and blood, as humans are so fond of saying. Never in all this time.... 

    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 come only from the imagination of Anne Rice....

    Not the best of Rice's work, but still quite good

    Another great continuation of the Mayfair Witches. I didn't like it as much as the 1st book. The 2nd book was a little disturbing, because of all of the incest and the concomitant violence that went along with it. This book focused on the murder of a Taltos member, revenge for their death, the cleansing of the darkness inside of the Talamasca, the history of the Taltos, and of more growth in the Mayfair family, now freed from Lasher's evil influence. Mona is my favorite character.

    I've already listened to the next three books in the series, Merrick, Blackwood Farm, and Blood Canticle. I loved Merrick and Blackwood Farm, but did not really enjoy Blood Canticle. I don't think you have to listen to Rice's Witch books starting with The Witching hour and continuing through to Blood Canticle. Merrick and Blackwood Farm certainly can be read as stand alone novels. However, now that they are all unabridged it might be worth your time to read them in chronological order.

    I'm not sure if I'll re-listen to any of Anne's books. She's probably in my top 30 to 50 favorite authors, but who knows, I won't rule out re-listening to a couple. I certainly do have favorites books among her work. I'm not interested in her Sleeping Beauty books, because I just don't think they'd hold my attention. However, I always look for new works from her. I enjoy her Werewolf books.

    Any way, I'm getting off topic. Even though I only give the story 3 stars I still recommend listening to this if your a Rice fan and especially if you have started the Witching Hour, because it gives one closure to the series.

    As always, Kate did another outstanding job narrating this book. She always does such a great job, and manages to maintain the same individual voices for each character across all of the novels, so there's never any confusion as to which character is speaking. Kudos to Kate!

    Intriguing Story, excellent narrator

    Must listen to the three books to get the full essence of the story. It is truly captivating.

    I love the Mayfair witches

    I did read some of these out of order. I stayed out with the Tales of a Vampire stories then delved into The Mayfair witches and Taltos stories. I can't get enough of them. I believe I have listened to all of the books from these series! found some of them on Overdrive ( library audio books (free)).

    Another fantastic book

    It seems difficult to believe, but there is actually more to the story of the Mayfair witches to be told in this third and final book in the series. Anne Rice introduces new characters, new situations, new twists and turns to this magnificent story. I just wanted it to go on and on.

    Anne Rice is a master story teller. Kate Reading is a master narrator with a voice like silk. Just sit back and listen!

    Absolutely Marvelous!

    I have loved Anne Rice's writing from the time my best friend placed The Witching Hour in my hands 20 years ago. Taltos, the culmination of the Mayfair Witches saga is a fantastic, compelling, suspenseful tale. I don't know how many times I've read it since it came out in hardcover in 1994. This is the 1st of many listenings, I'm sure. I've heard the entire series as read by Kate Reading and I think she's the perfect person for the job! I'm thrilled to have her 'read me a story.'

    Book 3 The Mayfair Witches. Outstanding.

    Anne Rice was a philosophical genius.
    In Ashland's story one can't help but see how detremental religion had to be on ancient civilizations on which it was forced upon. There is more to the Mayfair Witches in the very entertaining book "Blackwood Farm" and finally"The Blood Canticle". Anne Rice's death had just been announced last month. So on honor of her genius I am revisiting what I feel were her best stories on Witches and Vampires combined. Long live the true Queen of the Damned--- Anne O'Brien Rice.

    Great for Taltos history and Mayfair closure

    This was mostly a look at how the Taltos live. It's not as exciting as the first two books were, but it's certainly a necessary story. The only thing I don't like about Kate is that she always makes her sentences sound like questions at the end. This was a great end to a very interesting series.
