For fans of Maggie Stiefvater and Holly Black comes a dark mystery set in a secret New Orleans voodoo society.
Claire Kincaid would love to be normal. But as a descendant of Marie Laveau, the most powerful voodoo queen in history, that’s just not possible. Even worse, Claire’s lack of interest in the craft makes her an outsider in her community, putting her secret romance with the voodoo Guild leader’s son at odds. But when mysterious strangers start requesting black market items from local voodoo shops, including the one her family owns, Claire decides to investigate. With the help of some unlikely allies and her gorgeous boyfriend, Claire must uncover the dark truths her family has kept hidden from her and unravel a dangerous plot that threatens to destroy every member of the Guild, including her family and the boy she loves.
Interesting topic. It would've been nice to know more perhaps in a longer novel. It seemed like the author kept repeating things over and over and coming up with more twists and turns for the characters. The end felt rushed while the whole book dragged along. I also got a very vague picture of the cultures in this book. When I heard this this book focuses on voodoo in New Orleans I thought "finally some history and culture". Guess not. Happy Reading!
