Along with Stephen King, I've grown bored with Anne Rice's books. But this one is still one of my favorites. The vampire Lestat has become so pompous and self-important in Rice's latest vampire books I just can't stand reading them. But Taltos doesn't have Lestat which I'm so grateful for. This is an intricately plotted novel with great characters that come alive and a fascinating premise is revealed towards the end. I definitely recommend this book.

Third in the series of the Mayfair Witches it is possibly one of my favorite books from the series. Secrets are revealed about their haunted heritage and the link they have to outside wonders.

A continuation of the Mayfair Witches story that began with The Witching Hour. Some of Anne Rice's finest writing. Complex, compelling. Astonishing depth and imagination.

In this story the family's haunted heritage has brought them great wealth, which is exercised from a New Orleans manse With SOuther n gentility, but of course such power cannot escape notice...or challenge...Rice is a formidable talent...Taltos is a curious amalgram of gothis, glamour fiction, alternate history, and high soap opera.

Great Mayfair Witches book - #3. Anne Rice works wonders. You can never go wrong with her work. Should read THE WITCHING HOUR and LASHER first, however.

I actually liked Anne Rice's Mayfair Witches Chronicles better than the Vampire Chronicles. Though I did like the first two books in this series, The Witching Hour and Lasher, better than this third one.

The last book of a three (long) book series about The Mayfair Witches. After thousands of pages, I'd expected to read the WHY's of the theme of this book, the 13th witch, but instead I was further confused and unsatisfied with the Rice explanation. So many characters became unlikeable that it was difficult to even finish this book, but I wanted answers that never were provided. I did enjoy the descriptions of New Orleans and all the details Rice infuses into her stories.

I can remember waiting for this book to be released, if you are reading the Mayfair Witches series you will not be disappointed with this book. It wraps up with information and history that make it all come together. A really excellent book!!
