Though not as compelling as its prequel, Lasher is an entertaining read. Again shifting back and forth from past to present, Lasher tells his own story, Julian tells his, and we meet the enchanting present-day Mona. While in "The Witching Hour" the method of telling about past events was unique, the historical documents of the Talamasca, in "Lasher" we are told about the past in narrative fashion from the ghost of Julien, as well as Lasher himself. It's a perfectly acceptable convention, but not quite as unique. It was good to get more back-story, although Julien's is more fill-in-the-blank as we know most of that from the first book.
What this volume does have over it's predecessor is a much more satisfying ending, one I really didn't see coming, considering the existence of a sequel.
