Two stories the second is better

All the books in the LaRue series are entertaining, although the main characters lack of perception is frustrating. You have to keep in mind she is a teenager. Some of the big ah huh moments can be seen far in advance but it doesn't kill the desire to continue the story...
All the books in the LaRue series are entertaining, although the main characters lack of perception is frustrating. You have to keep in mind she is a teenager. Some of the big ah huh moments can be seen far in advance but it doesn't kill the desire to continue the story. I found that many of the other characters in the tale were more attention getters than the main character Arelia LaRue.

The real gem of this book is the second portion that finally gives and explanation for the curse that fuels everybook in the series. This is the portion of the tale that I found more interesting and alluring. It takes you back to a dark and beautiful piece of history in the united states. This portion of the story is still very much saturated by Voodoo/hoodoo. Slavery and the role the free men and women played along with a society still driven by slavery and predudice as excepted and neccesary norms is displayed, along with new characters.

Kira Saito LaRue series is a easy enjoyable read.

    Horrible Grammar!

    I did enjoy the series, but at times it was difficult to follow because there were terrible grammar errors.

    Plain truth

    Boring. Just plain boring. It was incredibly hard to get through i understand what the author was going for but honestly she needed to add more conversation and less thinking and details about the setting. I didnt care for the storyline the ending seemed rushed. This novel wasnt one of my favorites but if u like slower easier going books this is a keeper.
