|Plot Summary of Taltos|
|"Ash Templeton is the last of his kind, an ancient race called the Taltos. Tall, beautiful and born full-grown, they were erased by mankind many centuries ago. In modern day New York, Ash comes into contact with Rowan Mayfair and her husband Michael Curry, who are the parents of two Taltos, now dead. Ash relays the story of his people to Rowan and Michael, while unbeknownst to all of them, young Mona Mayfair, who had a one-night affair with Michael, is giving birth to a Taltos in the swamps of Louisiana."
Amanda Goodwin, Resident Scholar
