Jewell Parker Rhodes follows up her acclaimed Voodoo Dreams with a present-day mystery surrounding the gifts of an ancestor of the Voodoo Queen. Doctor Marie Levant can't explain why she's drawn to New Orleans, why it's comforting and unsettling at the same time. And she can't shake her haunting dreams. But when she delivers a dead woman's baby, Marie knows malevolent forces are at work-and it's up to her to stop them. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 2/5/2014

    " Very quick read. I like that it was set in modern day New Orleans but had a hard time "getting lost" in the book. I think that the author tried too hard to recreate Voodoo Dreams here. Anyway, not too impressed and I will not be reading the third installment, Voodoo Jazz. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 2/2/2014

    " Solid 3. Nice follow-up to Dreams and continues the saga of Marie L. lineage dealing with the demons who haunted the Grand Dame Marie. Quick read - entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vanessa | 2/1/2014

    " It was bad and then it got good and then it got horrible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 1/26/2014

    " I liked this 2nd book in the series, based on the descendent of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, well enough to want to continue with the series. A mystery to be solved, interesting characters, and good plot. Helps to read Voodoo Dreams: A Novel of Marie Laveau first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 1/20/2014

    " I have a signed copy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 1/8/2014

    " Voodoo is one of my interests and Voodoo Season brings the Loa to life in a modern day mystery. The author does a good job of writing a compelling story and weaving historical fiction and mystery dramas together. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly Booms Walsh | 12/29/2013

    " Purple prose weighted down this mystery set in New Orleans about a doctor that seems to be a spiritual descendant of the famed Marie LaVeau. I wanted to get swept away but it is so overblown and overstated that I got annoyed and dropped it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 North Olmsted Library | 12/8/2013

    " This is an intensely descriptive read that pulled me in from the first page. Very New Orleans, you can feel the weather, the emotions, and smell the smells. What a wild ride! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Genaphur | 12/2/2013

    " I was afraid that reading this book so long after reading the 1st (Voodoo Dreams) that I would miss something but this story could just stand on it's own. I would say you really must read the 1st book though because it's so good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tonya | 11/28/2013

    " A one night read. I recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the films The Skeleton Key and/or Eve's Bayou. The book's flow and descriptions of New Orleans makes you feel as if you're in the book watching the story unfold. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kym Kaczmarek-Mcnamara | 11/23/2013

    " glimpses into the history of New Orleans, the mysticial and magicial and with a bit of voodoo to complete the foundation. Very interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 kisha | 10/22/2013

    " IM TOTALLY NOT INTO VOODOO...BUT I LOVED THIS BOOK HOW SHE EXPLAINED VOODOO. HOW SHE SHOWED THE GOOD AND BAD (THOUGH I KNEW OF KNOW GOOD B4 THIS BOOK). SHE'S AN EXCELLENT WRITER....PUTS ME IN THE MIND OF TONI MORRISON. YOU HAVE TO BE OPEN MINDED TO READ THIS BOOK. BUT I LOVED IT. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie Bailey | 4/28/2013

    " This was a spur of the moment read. It took me a while to get into the book but because it had a mysterious feel after a couple of chapters, I became really interested. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenn | 12/15/2012

    " So predictable. I did not enjoy the book at all. The author should have stopped with the first book. I have no desire to read the third book in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 KJP | 6/12/2012

    " Pretty good- woman moves to New Orleans--get mixed up in voodoo and discovers that she is connected to the famed Marie Lavoe (im probably sp this incorrectly). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angela | 5/31/2012

    " I didn't finish it. It was ok, hard to follow. Wasn't what I was expecting. I might read the book that she wrote prior to this one though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teri | 4/11/2012

    " One of the very best books I've read in a long time. This trilogy would make a fantastic movie. Can't recommend highly enough. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 11/29/2011

    " I don't know if it was because I listened to this book on cd, and the reader wasn't that good, or whether it was just poorly written - maybe both... but I kept wanting to speed the chapters up. It was just ok. The protaganist was a bit annoying. I really wanted to like it... but umm, not so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chastity | 11/10/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CS | 9/22/2011

    " Interesting story - I didn't know when I started it that it was a sequel. Having more background might me like the story even more. Quick read. "

    The book is slow paced and repititious, but I liked the ending. "
