Overview

Lasher (Mayfair Witches Series #2) by Anne Rice

From the day her first Vampire Chronicle was published, critics and readers—readers by the hundreds of thousands—have been mesmerized by the writings of Anne Rice.  And with the publication of The Witching Hour, she created for us yet another world and legend, and both the chorus of praise and the multitudes of her readers once more increased.

Now, Anne Rice brings us again—even more magically—into the midst of the dynasty of witches she introduced in The Witching Hour.

At the center:  the brilliant an beautiful Rowan Mayfair, queen of the coven, and Lasher, the darkly compelling demon whom she finds irresistible and from whose evil spell and vision she must now flee.  She takes with her their terrifying and exquisite child, one of "a brood of children born knowing, able to stand and talk on the first day."

Rowan's attempt to escape Lasher and his pursuit of her and their child are at the heart of this extraordinary saga.  It is a novel that moves around the globe, backward and forward through time, and between the human and demonic worlds.  Its many voices—of women, of men, of demons and angels, present and past—haunt and enchant us.  With a dreamlike power, the novel draws us through twilight paths, telling a chillingly hypnotic story of occult and spiritual aspirations and passion.

I enjoyed reading this book but the ending was not up to par. I was disappointed, personally. The book seemed to veer off to a totally different pace and feeling towards the end and it makes it almost annoying. I enjoy Anne Rice, but this is far from her best work!!!

I just finished unpacking, and found it. I read this book back when i was 24, I am now 33 and the book was even better this time around, now its making me want to read all the other books over again. Lasher was soooo delicious, and his past with the family...Love Hate relationship. I wanted more like i want chocolate. Brilliant! I just wish that she would expand more on the witches chro., maybe even bring him back. Oh How I depised him, and the family was just Fabulous!!!!Julien need his on book!!!! GREAT READ, GREAT READ!!!!

For me this book was not as captivating as was its predecessor, The Witching Hour. Lasher just seemed to wander with no main plot and periodically I had to force myself to pick the book up to continue reading.

I first read the Mayfair Witches series many years ago, when it was first published. It remains one of my favorites, more so than her Vampire Chronicles. Such an intricate dance of characters and plot... it demands your attention.
