    A disappointing end to a potnetially good series.

    I normally am a huge Anne Rice fan and wanted to read the Mayfair Witch series so that I could continue in the Vampire Chronicle series. I was barely amused by Witching Hour. Though I was in love with the rich family tapestry, I was highly disappointed in the ending. In Lasher, I enjoyed the undertone of corruption in the Talamasca but could not find empathy in any of the characters. By the time I got to Taltos, I just watned to see the series end. While I was fascineted with the history of the Taltos, I found the resolution lacking. Ashlar spends the entire story lamenting the nature of the Taltos and how the species should die out...and what happens at the end??? Ashlar find the last remaining female Taltos and mates with her. While reverting to the base nature of one's species was a central and provocative theme in the Vampire Chronicle's Lestat character, I found the theme to be tired and hollow in this series. The series had potential in the beginning but ends with with an unsatifying thud.

    Boring compared to Witching Hour

    Taltos was a disappointing 3rd edition to the Witching Hour trilogy. I could not put the witching hour down and in fact have read 2 times and could deffinately read it again, But taltos was slow, boring, and seemed confusing and irrelavent to the continuing story of the mayfair family. Witching Hour was outstanding, lasher was a satisfaction to the unanswered questions in W.H. but taltos just weighed everything down.
