Anne Rice once again proves that just because you have written a bunch of novels and made a bunch of money off them doesn't mean that you know how to write. Some of my irritations with this third and final installment of Lives of the Mayfair Witches:

- Refers to the main character of Chapter 1 as "he" for pages and pages, leaving us mystified as to whether we've met this person before and annoyed at what is even *happening*?
- Inserts two chapters of 80+ pages of info-dump in the first person, even though the book is written in third person omniscient.
- Suddenly "discovers" another Mayfair offspring around Mona's age, conveniently at the time she needs a friend to assist in her crazy. Has Michael, of course, lust after the poor girl because she is, of course, completely deliciously gorgeous and wears a cowboy hat. Does not bring the Michael-lust plot point up ever again.
- Inelegantly explains the Taltos--oh, guys, they weren't what you thought for the thousands of pages of the last books--making me more confused and annoyed at what the heck the purpose of the last two books was.

And those are just the big ones.

All I can say is, thank you, Anne Rice, for teaching me never to buy all the books in a series at once. If I hadn't done that, my eyeballs would never fallen upon these pages. At least it wasn't as bad as the first one.

I like all of Anne Rice books but re-reading this one has lost some of the zest it had in the beginning.

ok, easily the best book i have ever read. all of her books just seem to lead up to this masterpiece. The Witching Hour, although incredibly amazing and captivating, was really nothing but a platform. Then came Lasher, which revolved around the Mayfairs' discovery of what a Taltos is, and a lot about Lasher. It ends dramatically. Then came this book, which is easily the climax. It is was better written than anything i had ever read, with all the right descriptions and stories and fantasies. it evoked images of olden times, dancing in stones, letting the animalistic response to music control you. oh god, if i could only express how much i enjoyed this book. i think the only way i can get that across to you is for you to just go buy the book!!!!!

I agree with another reviewer on this list that Rice should have stopped while she was ahead. She told a wonderful and gripping story in the Witching Hour. This installment paled in comparison. I usually love Rice's rich detail and the epic scope of her stories, but here it just dragged. If you like Anne Rice, you probably will not hate this book, but there is little here to love.

Haunting and mysterious. The strange non-human Tessa sent shivers up my spine, and to this day, I spend evenings wondering about her and her peculiar kind. Why does she weave? Why does she speak so strangely? What was her early life really like? Buy this book and be haunted for a life time.

I think that I was the odd one in my family who actually like this book. I enjoyed learning more about the main characters. Towards the end of the book I did feel like something was left out that needed to be addressed. Possible Rice does address this in the next book. I enjoyed learning the so called history of the Taltos.
