Abstract:

The adventures of the Taltos, superhuman beings born of witches and known for being violent and oversexed. The story centers on arranging a union between two of them, one a wealthy doll manufacturer in New York, the other a dwarf in Scotland. The union would end the New Yorker's loveless existence, the result of a curse imposed on him for trying to convert his clan to Christianity. By the author of Lasher. Rice's new novel continues the epic occult saga that began with The Witching Hour and Lasher. Taltos takes readers back through the centuries to a civilization part human and part of wholly mysterious origins, at odds with mortality and immortality, justice and guilt.
