This is a wonderful read full of dark voodoo and old dark family secrets! I was hooked from the first word till the last word. I started this one late at night so I carried into my dreams! I gained some voodoo knowledge that was very interesting ! Just when you think you have it figured out, another skeleton falls out of the closet ! ! ! Lots of betrayal and heartache. . . . . you may want to leave the lights on when reading this one :)
5 stars ! ! ! !
