I finished reading Zoraida Grey and the Voodoo Queen on the weekend. This is an enjoyable story with an interesting cast of characters, which for me, was the high-point of the story. I felt there was a lot of time spent sailing on the sea in search of Jock, which slowed the action, but there was plenty of drama off shore.
Below is my review...published for Still Moments Magazine.
Zoraida Grey and the Voodoo Queen
Zoraida Grey needs help. With the witchy Logan clan holding her best friend hostage in a haunted Scottish castle, she can’t trust anyone—certainly not beguiling but dangerous Shea Logan. And Al, her overprotective boyfriend, doesn’t believe in magic.
Only one creature strikes fear in the blackened hearts of the Logan witches. Trouble is Jock disappeared five centuries ago leaving a trail of destruction across the Gulf of Mexico. Now he’s stepped into a steaming pile of Voodoo.
Can Zoraida drag wayward Jock back to Scotland? And what’s she supposed to do with two men who promise completely different futures? A Scottish wizard, stripped naked and painted blue—a Voodoo priestess bent on immortality—a yacht-load of Caribbean pirates. What can possibly go wrong?
Between The Pages
This story starts where book one left us hanging. Granny, who was a favourite of mine in the first book, with the help of her sister (also Shea’s mother) Skulja (who was disguised as Grimalkin the cat) gives Zoraida a new task. The author does a superb job creating interesting characters. A few to watch for are Azili, who is an enjoyable, mysterious character, and Jock, who jumps from the pages running around naked and painted blue. The cast of characters are the driving point in this book, which also has plenty of action and adventure. This paranormal story has fun twists and turns. With a touch of romance, Zoraida finally chooses her mate. This story (like the first one) ends on an edge with a return to Scotland and Castle Logan, leaving the reader wanting to find out what happens next.
