Taltos
(1994)

In Taltos, the third book of Anne Rice’s Witches Chronicles, Rowan Mayfair recovers from her catatonic trance when she is told that her good friend and relative Aaron Lightner has been murdered. Rowan goes to Europe with her husband, Michael, to avenge Aaron’s death, leaving behind Rowan’s young relative, Mona, another powerful witch who is pregnant with Michael’s baby. Once in Europe they join forces with Ashlar, the last of the Taltos, a supernatural race, and Yuri, a member of the Talamasca, the centuries-old group that Aaron worked for. Together they find the men who ordered Aaron’s death and eliminate them. On the plane trip back to New York, Ashlar tells Rowan and Michael the story of the Taltos, beings of goodness and truth who can reproduce so rapidly, maturing to adulthood in a day, that they would overrun the world. Since he is the last Taltos, however, he poses no threat. Meanwhile back home, Mona has given birth to a Taltos daughter, Morrigan. When Rowan and Michael come home, they aren’t sure what to do, but Ashlar solves the problem by following them, meeting Morrigan, and taking her to Europe with him to begin the Taltos race again.


POINT OF VIEW

Anne Rice has once again chosen to use multiple third-person narrators (characters who use ‘‘he’’ or ‘‘she’’ instead of ‘‘I’’) to tell her story
