Read full description of the books:
This is a difficult book to write a review about. I've been an avid fan of Anne Rice's books since I was in junior high, since I love her style of writing and of course her gothic themes (vampires, demons, witches).
Lasher is the second novel of the Lives of the Mayfair Witches trilogy. The first is "The Witching Hour" and the third is "Taltos". I guess I have to find Taltos a.s.a.p. in order to complete this whole er...journey.
Lasher is a Taltos, which is an almost extinct super-human race who lived on a tropical island north of the British Isles, but forced to flee to Scotland, where they established their own kingdom, which was finally overthrown by the Christians. Lasher and the Mayfair witches shared a long history, full with weird mysterious occurrences, including incest and struggle to find their true identity. Lasher was summoned by Suzanne Mayfair, the first Mayfair witch, to help her establish a strong, wealthy family. That fatal decision made her descendants to carry the family legacy/curse of having the "obligation" to conceive Lasher's children (other Taltos).
In this novel, Rowan Mayfair, the 13th designee of the Mayfair clan (also the most powerful witch, was kidnapped by Lasher, and her suffering was like....between heaven and hell. The description of her "tortures" was...so enthralling. If you've read Rice's novels, you'll see what I mean, hahaha...This book also introduced to the 14th designee, Mona Mayfair, whom I must say, a very er...courageous little girl.
Anyway, what I love about this book is that it provides clearer explanation on the history of the clan itself. I was a bit shocked when I read the part about Julien Mayfair's life story. He is the only male "witch" in the family, yet very powerful and influential. Moreover, as always, Rice uses historical events & real people to decorate her story on how Lasher came into being and the journey of Mayfair witches in dealing with this sensual demonic character.
And I thank God because Rice did not put her (in)famous Lestat de Lioncourt in this novel. I do not really like when she mixed her vampires with the Mayfair witches. It is just too much. I guess I won't be reading "Blood Canticle" then.
