Lasher, charismatic, seductive daemon of Anne Rice's mesmerizing novel The Witching Hour, returns to New Orleans and to the powerful Mayfair family.

Yearning to be made flesh, he chooses as his unwilling accomplice the gifted Rowan Mayfair the thirteenth of the Mayfair witches. Spellbound, she is drawn into his manic odyssey of mysticism and terror, at last giving birth to their daughter, beautiful Emaleth.

Hunted by the Mayfair Clan and the mysterious Tlamasca, and driven by the need to realize his terrifying vision of the future, Lasher is lured back to New Orleans. But by bringing him into their midst, and attempting to harness his daemonic energy, the family risks unleashing the full force of Lasher's destructive powers ...

The Talamasca, documenters of paranormal activity, is on the hunt for the newly born Lasher. Mayfair women are dying from hemorrhages and a strange genetic anomaly has been found in Rowan and Michael. Lasher, born from Rowan, is another species altogether and now in the corporeal body, represents an incalcuable threat to the Mayfairs. Rowan and Lasher travel together to Houston and she becomes pregnant with another creature like him, a Taltos. Lasher seeks to reproduce his race in other women, but they cannot withstand it. Rowan escapes and becomes comatose as her fully-grown Taltos daughter is born. The Mayfairs declare all-out war on Lasher and try to nurse Rowan back to heatlth.

Michael remains entwined in the Mayfair family and learns how he comes by his strange powers. Michael's ghostly visiting from a long-dead Mayfair reveals the importance of destroying Lasher. In the investigation, Lasher's origins are revealed, the new Taltos Emaleth returns, and the climax of death and life engulfs the family.
