Claire Kincaid’s family has been in business for over fifty years.

The voodoo business.

Part of the International Guild of High Priests and Priestesses, a secret society that have practiced voodoo for generations, the Kincaid’s run an underground supply house for authentic voodoo supplies. Claire plays along, filling orders for powders, oils and other bizarre ingredients in the family store, but she has a secret.

She doesn’t believe.

Struggling to reconcile her modern sensibilities with a completely unscientific craft based on suspicion, Claire can’t wait to escape New Orleans – and voodoo – when she goes to college, a desire that creates almost constant conflict in her secret affair with Xander Toussaint, son of the Guild’s powerful founding family.

But when a mysterious customer places an order for a deadly ingredient, Claire begins to realize that there’s more to voodoo – and the families that make up the Guild – than meets the eye.

Including her own.

As she bands together with the other firstborns of the Guild, she comes face to face with a deadly enemy – and the disbelief that may very well kill her.

This book is amazing! I absolutely love the whole Voodoo thing this has going on. The characters were also amazing and the writing style and terms used in this were just nothing short of fantastic.

The reader enters a world of modern day voodoo, where families have been bred in the art of voodoo for generations. They run typical white magic voodoo stores and have families. One day, someone comes in and asks for something off the black magic market and everything starts to unravel. Claire Kincaid starts investigating the events with her secretive boyfriend, Xander Toussaint, and soon discover there is more to this story than just black magic spells.

This book had me sucked in from start to finish. I highly recommend this book to anyone that likes to read about magic and finding yourself.
