Kallie is a Hoodoo apprentice who is enjoying carnival in New Orleans and was having a great time until the hunky nomad she had waiting in her bed is now dead and his best-friend and fellow nomad Layne is banging on her door. No one is going to believe she had nothing to do with Gabe's death.
When she is taken into custody by the Hecatean Alliance she finds that even they cannot protect her from what is trying to end her life. With the help of the handsome nomad and her friends Kallie sets out to find who is trying to put a premature end to her life and all clues are leading back to her mentor and Aunt Gabrielle.
BLACK DUST MAMBO is a big hit!!! I was engrossed from the very beginning to the very end and still wanting more. Kallie and her group of friends will keep you on the edge of your seat with their humor and the suspense of what can possibly go wrong next. Adrian Phoenix has created a new world in which the readers can venture into the land of hoodoo and the bayous of New Orleans.
I give this book:
This is the fourth book by Adrian Phoenix I've read, and her stories just keep getting better and better. This new series is an intriguing look into a different culture, and the humor and character interaction was amazing. I was sad to see the book end, but it was a great setup for book 2, which I can't wait to read.
