Hello, and welcome to my first Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine) since my hiatus! Today I have a book I'm anticipating very highly to advocate, so without further ado, let's go!
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.
So, why am I waiting?
First off, I adore Michelle Zink. I've literally read everything she's ever published, and loved everything. She's an enormously talented writer who can use different styles and voices, and her characters truly come to life for me.
I also love voodoo, and it's a subject that isn't written about nearly enough to satisfy me. It needs to be in more books, but since it isn't, I must get my hands on every book that it is.
Plus, there's romance! And knowing Michelle, I bet it gets steamy at some points. It better. But even if it doesn't I'm sure I'll love it.
I'm so looking forward to reading this book, and I hope that you are too!
