Overview

Living in St. Jude, a 110-year-old dying city on the edge of the Mississippi, is tough. But when a letter informs fourteen-year-old Cinque Williams of the passing of the father he never met, he is faced with an incomplete past and an uncertain future. A curse meant for his father condemns Cinque to a slow death even as it opens his eyes to the strange otherworld around him. With help from the ghost Willy T, an enigmatic White Woman named Iku, an African Loa, and a devious shape-shifter, Cinque gathers the tools to confront the ghost of his dead father. But he will learn that sometimes too much knowledge can be dangerous—and the people he trusts most are those poised to betray him.

What a fun read! I love fantasy, but have become discouraged at how dark and depressing many of the stories have become. This book was an adventure that made me grin as well as shiver in anticipation. Milazzo doesn't throw in pointless gore or drama. It's just a great story line with characters I cheered for! Absolutely loved the book. Read it from cover to cover in a day and I want MORE!!! Interesting characters and good plot with nice twists. Now one of my new favorite authors! I recommend this book. I was given this book from GoodReads.
