R-read this recently and just like the first time I was pleasantly surprised. This book has a very strong flavor to it of the deep south. With cajun characters, biker/gypsyies and even a high brow british wizard this could come of as over done but it didn't. Obviously a first book of a series, it le...

Got halfway through, put it aside for a week, and realized I didn't miss it at all. I was interested in several aspects of it, but they just didn't speak to me. Fair enough - not every book is for everyone.

This was really good. I enjoyed the characters (each one). There is a lot going on and in a short time frame. I liked the Hoodoo aspect of it, this made it different. A bit of a cliff hanger at the end. Hope there not one in book #2.

2.5-3 I love Adrian Phoenix's Maker Song series but this was nothing like it. Kallie the heroine- she brash, rude, makes stupid choices and punches her friends in the face for trying to protect her. Her friend Belladonna is almost exactly the same. I was so taken aback by their weak choices, unbeli...

Black Dust Mambo is a dark and sultry tale. Set in New Orleans during May Madness Carnival (think Spring Break for people with magical abilities), Black Dust Mambo has just the right amount of mystery and magic to keep me reading late into the night. Imagine…the partying, the debauchery…a young woma...

This one is between 3.5-4 stars for me.Lots of hoodoo, voodoo, magic and revenge set in Louisiana. I think it's a great start and the world is pretty cool, but the story was unfinished. I really need to read the next one. Luckily for me, it's out now. Another 3rd person following a few different cha...

I liked this book. Yes yes I know, if I start like that you know I'm trying to lay the groundwork against a lot of fuckery to follow. But, no, really, I like this book.The story follows Kellie Rivière, hoodoo practitioner who has gone to visit a magical carnival run by the Hecatean Alliance, kind of...

It's been a long time since I've read an Urban Fantasy novel that sweeps me away quite like this one (Kate Daniels and The Hollows come to mind). Though this is just the first of the series, I already have very high expectations. Hexes and poppets and bayou magic create a flavor of this world with...

I really liked the beginning and most of the characters, but I didn't like the cliff-hanger ending. It really felt like half a book. Too many questions weren't answered. I wish I had waited until the sequel was out before reading this. I like the setting of New Orleans, but if you've ever been to Ca...
