Review of Spirits of the Bayou by Morgan Hannah MacDonald

 

Nineteen-year-old Luc Boudreaux is adjusting to his paranormal abilities and getting used eBook Review Gal Book Review of Spirits of the Bayou by Morgan Hannah MacDonaldto being visited by spirits. When a young spirit named Charlotte visits him in his dreams to tell him he must “save the children” Luc uses his psychic abilities to help. In a race against time, Luc must find out who is abducting and sacrificing the children of New Orleans.

This book is just 199 pages, but there’s a lot going on. Voodoo, Hoodoo, curses and spells abound. Luc even has time to become romantically involved with a young Voodoo priestess. I did feel that the book got slightly bogged down with a lot of details and lengthy dialogue, and at times the plot seemed to drag a bit for my taste. I did appreciate that the author brought readers up to speed with Luc’s backstory. So, even though this is book 3 in the series, you don’t need to read books 1 and 2 to know what’s going on.

There’s quite a bit of strong language and some sexual situations in this book. In fact, I’m surprised there’s no mention of this, since many readers seem to be bothered by these things. The writing is good and it did compel me to read on. The editing was impeccable – something I always appreciate.

All in all I’d have to say this wasn’t a bad read. It’s interesting and action-packed for sure.
