About this title

Synopsis:

An Emmy-award winning writer relates the chilling tale of ruthless drug-lord Mal Sangre and voodoo priest Shane LaFitte, who fight the ultimate battle of good and evil behind the scenes of New Orlean's Mardi Gras celebration.

From the Author:

These are additional reviews my book has received:
"Events are fast-paced and suspenseful, and Reaves's masterful command of his setting turns a taste of the Big Easy into a delectably spicy read." -- Publishers Weekly

"The author of Street Magic (Tor, 1992) and Night Hunter (Tor, 1995) demonstrates his talent for capturing the exotic flavor of his settings in this fast-paced tale of supernatural forces at work in the modern world. Recommended for most fantasy and horror collections." -- Library Journal

"Voodoo is back with a vengeance. Dark fantasist and Emmy-winning screenwriter Michael Reaves turns his considerable skills to horror with Voodoo Child, a deadly serious and effectively chilling novel weaving several storylines together that cover black arts, white magic, voodoo, drugs, and -- of course -- murder. What makes this novel so good is that Reaves takes the voodoo seriously, as do his characters." -- Hellnotes

"Between above-ground tomb yards and voodoo rituals that arrived with the thriving slave trade, New Orleans is a perfect setting for dark fantasies, many of which have been set among the steamy, alligator-infested bayous. Now, against this backdrop of cypress hung thick with Spanish moss, comes Voodoo Child, the fine new novel from Emmy award-winning writer Michael Reaves. The feel of the writing is real enough to wilt your clothes, to make you sweat or swat at the clouds of buzzing mosquitos. Against the dark and humid New Orleans spring, with the workings of voodoo, the French Quarter, and a bleak trip into the Louisiana State Prison, the players are bound for a horrific showdown, upon which their fates and that of the world itself hinges. Voodoo Child is a welcome addition to books that go bump in the night." --The Portland Oregonian

"What better setting for a horror novel of black magic than a city where the dead rise up from their graves annually to celebrate and be celebrated? A city of ghosts, and voodoo, and magic, and a long history of unusual occurrences. Not to mention a certain reputation for corruption and crime. Reaves takes full advantage of his setting to establish an unsettling mood. Even among the bright lights and revelry of Mardi Gras, there are ominous shadows lurking. And Reaves will have you eyeing the shadows suspiciously, looking for supernatural critters lying in wait or hunting for victims, side by side with the thieves and pushers also seeking victims." -- The SF Site
