From the Mayfair Witches collection, only The Witching Hour seems to provide much of a coherent story, though the other works have considerable information on Rice’s world of witchcraft, spirits, and human-like aliens as well as the Mayfair family of witches itself.
The three titles are excellently read by Joe Morton, Lindsay Crouse, and Tim Curry, but it’s unclear what the producer was trying to accomplish by arranging the set out of chronological order.
The action in Lasher logically follows that of The Witching Hour, which ends describing the relationship of Rowan Mayfair with the spirit Lasher. Taltos seems to be a vehicle to redefine Lasher, killed off in the earlier work, as a demon who assumed the identity of Mr. Ashlar, a nonhuman, nonvampire being whose kind live for millennia. There’s a lot of pseudomyth touched up with Catholic or voodoo imagery and laced liberally with incestuous or otherwise taboo sex: Horrifying, no, though quite horrible.
Merrick, on the other hand, provides the listener with an excellent abridgment, read with great feeling and effectiveness by Sir Derek Jacobi. Though Merrick is a Mayfair and a witch, one will not have had to read a majority of other works Rice has written about the Mayfairs to understand what is happening in this story. Also, along with the myth and voodoo allusions, one actually gets some of what the listener would think of as witchcraft. It’s decidedly spooky stuff that also explores Rice’s visions of possible afterlives, the mortality of witches, and the virtual immortality of vampires.
Acquire Mayfair Witches in this abridged taltoe only if circulation patterns indicate you should. Merrick is highly recommended for adult fiction and horror collections. This is the complex history of the mysterious Mayfair family through centuries of their tangled existence with a demonic spirit, a spirit that has brought them power and terrible tragedy.

Taltos by Anne Rice | : Books
As blasphemous as this may sound, this is probably my favorite book by Anne Rice. Maybe it was the age I was at when it was released. I can honestly say that I have read, and pretty much loved every book she’s written, but this one put so many hooks in me that I guess I never got away. There are so many stories going on. There is the child, practically stolen at birth.
The ghost that gives wealth and power while it plots it’s future. The lost women, used and discarded. An evil woman so cloaked in self righteousness that she believes her behavior is not only acceptable, but necessary. And the witch determined to free the family from it’s curse.
After all, this story covers some plus years. And then there is New Orleans and the House. There is simply no other place like New Orleans. Even today the streets, houses, cemeteries, people, churches and sometimes, it seems, the very air are different. A very Old World place plopped down in the New. I truly believe that in just about anyone else’s hands all of the threads of this story would be a knot so tangled it would require a knife to undo.
A really big knife.

How she manages it is beyond me- but she does. So, if you like history, romance, mystery, suspense, and some seriously spooky goings on, you might love this book as much as I do. Well, almost as much. Worth the hours put in! This took me a long while to read.
I am so glad I powered through it! I however was not descargaf fond of the ending. I understand that this is a series, but I feel like Anne Rice didn’t intend for it to be whenever she started this book. However, It kept me interested, unfortunately the Mayfair history tends to drag on. But the background and history is decsargar to understanding the book, I realized this later on.
If you are looking for a book to keep you occupied for awhile this would be my suggestion. If you are looking for descargxr quick read, skip this one and come back when you’re looking for a story series to get invested in. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. The book is absolutely amazing. I thought the Vampire Chronicles were good, and don’t get me wrong, I do love them.

But the Mayfair Family and their long, chaotic history is simply amazing. This is also a story about strong women, matriarchy, magic, and sex! There is a historical feel to it, as well as horror and sci-fi. From the moment I began reading the vivid descriptions of the architecture of the Garden District homes, I had to get on Google Maps to see for myself. And the women of haltos generation are each amazing in their own right.
This is one of my favorite books, and I strongly recommend it.
I love this series. One of my all time favorites.
They are the books I read again and again, like visiting old friends. Fantastic character development, intriguing plot, and beautifully written.
They evoke an inexplicable feeling when I read them or think about the charactersif I were forced to describe the feeling I would us the words: Anne Rice has created a world that lives in my imagination, where these characters live that has become a place that feels almost real and tangible.
Anne has given me more with this book than a great story with compelling characters I love, she’s given me inspiration, and often a much needed escape during challenging times in my life. I loved descafgar historical aspect of this book but still didn’t truly enjoy the read as I have with other authors.
I’m sure Anne Rice fans will enjoy this work of fiction but I’m still not a fan.
I did, however, enjoy the historical aspects of this novel and enjoyed the setting and descriptive imagery. When I picked up the 2nd book of this trilogy, “Lasher” I found myself closing the book and putting it away probably for good.
Dsecargar just some aspects I can’t move past. A story of a witch family in New Orleans. It is a bit of a slow read because it ricce more like a history than a novel as it goes back to early Scotland and brings the reader into the 70’s.
A little tedious at times but I did enjoy reading it. Sorry to say that I read these books years ago and have never left a review. To me this trilogy is the best writing from Miss Rice and I have been on an avid quest to find anything that elicites even half he excitement and intrigue that these books gave me.
These witches are of a kind in every way.
