Genres: Adult, Supernatural
Lexie Arden has a loving husband, a thriving business, and consults with the New Orleans Police Dept on murder cases. Kalfu has given her everything she desires, but challengers to her authority are closing in.
Her dark secret remains hidden from everyone except Magnus. He sees the evil growing stronger, changing her, and hurting her marriage. If Lexie doesn’t rid herself of Kalfu’s influence soon, the consequences will be irreversible.
When she unexpectedly inherits a cottage in the swamp, she uncovers a library of rare books on voodoo. Their spells can reverse the dark lord’s hold and set right the balance between darkness and light. But such magic requires a great sacrifice; one Lexie isn’t willing to make.
With the shadow spirits and raging voodoo gods vying for her attention, Lexie is on the verge of losing everything—her husband, her power, Magnus, and possibly, her life.
The battle for control of the mambo’s soul is about to begin.

Three murders have occurred.  On the surface, there are no links between the victims, except for the fact they all owned property in the French Quarter.  Oh, and the manner of dying.  See, they have been mutilated and carved into ribbons.  Additionally, Voodoo symbols have been carved into what skin was there.

Lucky for Lexie, Emile the NOPD detective, has asked her to help him solve the cases.  As Lexie and Magnus look upon the latest victim's remains, they quickly realize dark forces are at play here.  The cold darkness that only means powerful dark forces are growing and menacing the inhabitants of the French Quarter.

This book is the continuation of Lexie's journey as the new Mambo of New Orleans.   Although she has achieved fame and followers, her circumstances are still perilous.  She is still very green and unsure of her power.  The dark and light that reside within her continue to battle for control.  Her marriage is in trouble, her sanity can be next.  She has sacrificed to keep her husband Will alive and now she realizes she may have to come clean with him about what she gave up in order to keep him alive.

Gripping and scary, this is my favorite ghost series ever!

I am voluntarily reviewing this book.  Thanks to the authors for sharing a copy with me.
