Meet Mr.Ash, quiet spoken, tall, unfailing kind--sole survivor of an ancient species, the Taltos-thriving among humankind as he has always done, head of a great corporate empire. He is stunned to learn from an old and mysterous 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, into the mysteries of the Mayfair family, the New Orleans dynasty of witches forever besieged by ghosts, spirits, and the dizzing powers of his own species-a family intimately involved with the heritage of the Taltos, a family of unique, brillant, and troubled souls struggling as they have for centuries to use both science and magic in their battle for greatness, even survival.
Great stuff from Rice. The first book is much better in my mind at least but I enjoy this one too.
