Publisher Comments:

Together for the first time on CD are three powerful and alluring stories of New Orleans Dynasty of witches, The Mayfair Witches.

Lasher, read by Joe Morton

At the heart of this extraordinary saga is Rowan Mayfairs attempt to escape the evil spell and vision of the darkly compelling demon, Lasher, and his pursuit of her and their terrifying and exquisite child. It is a novel that moves around the globe, backward and forward through time, and between the human and demonic worlds.

The Witching Hour, read by Lindsay Crouse

The epic of the Mayfair witches begins when Rowan Mayfair pulls the drowned body of Michael Curry from the sea and brings him back to life. She is aware that she possesses special powers, but unaware that she comes from a great dynasty of withces. He, in his brief interlude with death, has acquired sendsory abilities that mystify and frighten him. Fiercely drawn to each other, the two fall in love and set out to solve the mystery of her past and his unwelcome gift.

Taltos, read by Tim Curry

Meet Mr. Ash, quiet spoken, tall, unfailingly kind–sole survivor of an ancient species, the Taltos–thriving among humankind as he has always done, head of a great corporate empire. As the novel opens, he is stunned to learn from and old and mysterious friend that another Taltos has been seen. At once he is propelled into the world of Rowan Mayfair, into the mysteries of the Mayfair family–a family initimately involved with the heritage of the Taltos.
