Melissa's Review:

The Voodoo Killings is book one in the Kincaid Strange series. The book tells us Kincaid Strange's story, she's a voodoo practitioner in Seattle that lives with a former rock star that happens to be a ghost. If that's not enough to catch your attention, she also raises ghosts and zombies for a living. So when Kincaid gets a call that there's a zombie roaming the streets of Seattle and she wasn't the one who raised it, she rushes to the scene. You see, she'd more than likely be blamed if the unauthorized zombie is caught since there are only a few people who could raise zombies in the city. This is where the story gets really interesting, the zombie is a local famous painter, Cameron Wight. When Kincaid tries to see who bound him as a zombie, she's puzzled to find a very peculiar binding on Cameron and she knows something odd is going on.

Along her journey in trying to help Cameron, Kincaid is also dealing with someone murdering zombies and they seem to be targeting the voodoo practitioners as well. Kincaid not only has to stay alive, but figure out who is behind all the mayhem in Seattle. I loved Kincaid's character, the story was so unique and while I enjoy KCharish's other series (Adventures of Owl) I think this one is my favorite now. I mean who could pass up zombies, ghosts, and voodoo practitioners? I really enjoyed The Voodoo Killings and highly recommend you grab this if you're a fan of zombies or Urban Fantasy.

  8. ...raises ghosts and zombies for a living? That is the most unusual premise I have heard in a long time. I'm definitely curious.
