Continuing the epic of the Mayfair witches, this brilliantly imagined tale takes listeners on a wondrous journey back through the centuries Rice remembered all the detail but forgot to throw in some story to go with it First two books were great Maintain a safe distance from this one. So, I am writing this review many, many years after the fact This was my third Anne Rice novel after The Witching Hour which I loved and Lasher, which was OK And along comes this book I just couldn t get into it It was so horrible, squicky and stupid In fact, my best memory of it was the woman at the laundry in Georgia who saw me reading it and warned me not to delve into books like this, they would only wreak havoc with my soul If only she knew how prescient that comment was Just not i So, I am writing this review many, many years after the fact This was my third Anne Rice novel after The Witching Hour which I loved and Lasher, which was OK And along comes this book I just couldn t get into it It was so horrible, squicky and stupid In fact, my best memory of it was the woman at the laundry in Georgia who saw me reading it and warned me not to delve into books like this, they would only wreak havoc with my soul If only she knew how prescient that comment was Just not in they way she intended You are dead to me, Anne Rice Dead to me Because of Taltos. Every time I read an Anne Rice novel I come away from it feeling as though for a while I were peeking into another world, a world I would very much so like to exist in Knowing my luck even if I did exist in this world she s created I d never happen upon one of these amazing creatures, and so I d still never be the wiser or I d become a part of a short tragic scene Taltos is another example of Anne s amazing skill as a writer, and master story teller Her words are the paintbrush while your min Every time I read an Anne Rice novel I come away from it feeling as though for a while I were peeking into another world, a world I would very much so like to exist in Knowing my luck even if I did exist in this world she s created I d never happen upon one of these amazing creatures, and so I d still never be the wiser or I d become a part of a short tragic scene Taltos is another example of Anne s amazing skill as a writer, and master story teller Her words are the paintbrush while your mind is the canvas I just simply love Anne s work so much, and highly recommend it to everyone 3.5 stars usually it s the middle book in a trilogy that I would give the lesser rating to but in this case taltos was my least fav of Mayfair witches It took me a while to get around to this third installment of Rice s Mayfair trilogy I started it a while back and realized I couldn t quite handle it yet so I moved on to other things for a while then came back and was able to finish it There s just something about this story, from beginning to end 1st book to 3rd book that has gotten under my skin It s one of those stories I won t soon forget beautifully written yet intensely disturbing The perfect formula for an unforgettable tale A It took me a while to get around to this third installment of Rice s Mayfair trilogy I started it a while back and realized I couldn t quite handle it yet so I moved on to other things for a while then came back and was able to finish it There s just something about this story, from beginning to end 1st book to 3rd book that has gotten under my skin It s one of those stories I won t soon forget beautifully written yet intensely disturbing The perfect formula for an unforgettable tale Anyway, as to this book specifically I just have to say Rice s vision of the Taltos, a forgotten, practically extinct race of beings that are so close to human they can pass as human but the differences are so NOT human, and THEY ARE SO CREEPY, well it s brilliant to say the least These beings have been around since the dawn of time and when humans began making an appearance the Taltos made fun of them, describing them as hairy monkey things As humankind evolved and advanced, the Taltos managed to stay out of their way, until disaster struck and their paradise, their island of plenty, fell into the sea The surviving Taltos were forced to journey to the bitter cold land of Britain where they managed to hang on Being able to give birth to walking, talking, fully knowing children was a definite plus in terms of replenishing their numbers They were able to pass as human for a long time, until humans became smart enough to question why they had no young and finally began to catch on to the differences Of course mass slaughter of the Taltos was the inevitable outcome pretty obvious social commentary here However, the graphic scenes of Taltos being forced to procreate as part of religious ceremonies the children are born almost instantly upon conception , offspring being forced to procreate and then being tossed into the fire and on and on until the people were satisfied enough sacrifice had taken place well, I had nightmares to say the least It s the mark of a very good author when a story sticks to you like this I don t know how I feel about the ending Happy and horrified at the same time I guess Rice kinda sorta left it open for another sequel, but I really hope that never, ever happens I honestly don t even want to know what could potentially happen next Taltos
