Read full description of the books Anne Rice Value Collection: Mayfair Witches:This was actually my second time through all three of these. Having just picked up "The Prince Lestat", I realized it has been a very loooong time since I read much of Rice's stuff and I'd forgotten a number of salient points. So I began backtracking. That led me to Vampire Chronicles #7: Merrick. Merrick was a Mayfair. Not from the main branch of the family, but as we learned with Mayfairs, that is seldom reason to assume ANY Mayfair lacks "gifts".
I quickly realized how interconnected all of her Vampire Chronicles and the Mayfair Witches stories are! So back I went to reread all of the Mayfair Witches series.
I'm glad I did. I picked up on much that I'd missed the first time around with both The Witching Hour and Lasher. I'm about halfway through Lasher now. If you haven't read these in the past decade or more, and you liked them the first time around, you might wish to revisit them. As with all gifted authors and great stories, what you take away from a story changes perspective at different points in your life. I'm now in my mid-fifties and I find myself empathizing more, and paying more attention, to the older characters. As a result, I'm taking away an entirely different perspective.
This is every bit as much a grand Southern Gothic novel as much as a Gothic Horror novel. I missed that the first time around when I was in my early 30s. I find myself seeing the broader canvas upon which the actions of the players are painted, not simply zooming ahead with the actions of the key participants.
It's not a set of novels I would have expected to stand the test of time, but they hold up remarkably well. I find myself pleasantly surprised and thrilled to be wrong.
