"An eye for an eye is never enough."
Kallie Rivière, a Cajun hoodoo apprentice with a bent for trouble, learned the meaning of those ominous words when hoodoo bogeyman Doctor Heron targeted her family for revenge.
Now, while searching for her still-missing bayou pirate cousin, Kallie finds out the hard way that someone is undoing powerful gris gris, which means that working magic has become as unpredictable as rolling a handful of dice. The wards woven to protect the Gulf coast are unraveling, leaving New Orleans and the surrounding bayous vulnerable just as an unnatural storm—the deadliest in a century—is born.
As the hurricane powers toward the heart of all she loves, Kallie desperately searches for the cause of the disturbing randomness, only to learn a deeply unsettling truth: the culprit may be herself.
To protect her family and friends, including the sexy nomad Layne Vallin, Kallie steps into the jaws of
danger . . . and finds a loup garou designed to steal her heart—literally.
I gave this book a 5
Adrain Phoenix has conjured up a mighty potion. Hoodoo and Vodoo are her ingredients of choice, and Black Heart Loa her magical concoction. In this incredible sequel to Black Dust Mambo, Adrian Phoenix once again ensnares us with her vivid characters and their unfolding tale. Kallie begins where she left off in book one and the search is on. Layne finds himself united with Kallie in more ways than one, and the portraiture of the events will leave you breathless. We’re introduced to new characters who demand their own story be told. Phoenix has "de novo" written a spell that is sure to please. I highly recommend this book, but only after reading Black Dust Mambo. I look forward to the next book in the series.
Thanks for another great book, Adrain!
