Read in January, 1994

Anne Rice certainly took her liberties with LASHER by including incest into the clan of the Mayfair Witches. But I wasn't prudish enough to NOT read or dismiss this very common happening thoughout because it is very real in our own 'real world history.'

If you want a warm, mushy family story then LASHER is not for you. Lasher is a demon spirit who preys on female Mayfairs in his attempt to procreate. Rowan Mayfair, queen of the coven who has borne Lasher's child, has now disappeared. This is where Anne brings her 'spirit' characters' to meet her witches. No vampires in these novels.

It's certaibly not a GREAT novel but the novel fleshes out more of the characters of the Mayfair witches; especially the insatiable controlling "Rowan Mayfair." Personal histories of her characters play out in this novel as well as others.

The novel is certinly another TYPE OF family affair on many different levels. :-)
