Book Description

Two teens turn to a Voodoo bokor to right a wrong. Their curiosity with the dark arts backfires into obsession.

Lucien Nazaire flees his Haitian homeland and settles in a Wisconsin trailer park filled with elderly tenants. He hires sixteen year old Jake for odd household jobs. The boy proves to be the perfect candidate to pass on his Voodoo legacy.
Jake LaRue lives in foster care with his abusive uncle. The Voodoo gives him a sense of power within an otherwise helpless situation. Despite his loner status, he instantly connects with Henry, his only friend in high school.
Henry Novak has Asperger’s Syndrome. He fixates on historical events, most recently the 2010 Haitian earthquake. Like Jake, he becomes passionate about the dark side of Voodoo. They learn how to cast spells on those they hate and lust.
Months after the Haitian earthquake, Henry convinces his family to volunteer for the island's reconstruction. Their mission turns into a nightmare when he mysteriously walks off of the campsite and returns in a catatonic state.
Bad Juju is a balance of horror, romance, and literary fiction intended for adults and mature teens. The plot uses research involving the Voodoo religion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling & Memorizing! September 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Chilling & Memorizing!

What a fantastic read! Dina Rae has created a world where the unimaginable has taken place. A world where everything you thought you knew about faith, religion, science, culture, and the unknown paranormal is tested beyond its limits and glorified in a truth you do not want to believe. In this so so real like world described on the pages I felt as if I was watching a movie, the action and thrill of excitement had me glued to the pages and I didn't want to put the book down. The characters were believable and convincing as my emotions grew sympathy and in an all in awe shocking gasp at every nightmare stowed upon each character.

The writing is truly brilliant not with just the plot of the story but with the different elements the author has combined into this amazing story. Get ready for your high school teenage lustful experiments (acts of sex), their jealousy, and their social status turning into revengeful craziness (language, fighting, and death to include suicide) . Where a parent's reality of clinging to their religion (prayers) or scientific reasoning (psychic help) of thinking god and doctors are the only cure for evilness but beware, a bad case of Voodoo (Bad JuJu) has a power of its own as it throws a society into a mix of a paranormal you never would of ever knew existed. So get ready for the rise of the dead (zombies), shapeshifting, and the powers of a dark magic that only a Bokor can deliver in a mixture of love spells, voodoo dolls, and possessions of ones body and mind.

I'm am still in awe thinking about the ending as it has left me with a wealth of knowledge to investigate on my own. The author's research has me intrigued about the Haitian Culture and their practice of Voodoo.

The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I received a copy of Bad Juju from the author via Full Moon Bites Book Tours for review.

Lucien Nazaire left his home and his family in Haiti and came to America to escape death. He practices the Voodoo religion and had gotten himself in danger with some of the things that he did with the religion. Lucien is an old man and has been cheating death. He knows his time is almost up and he needs someone that he can trust to leave all of his secrets too.

He meets Jake who is an orphan living with his uncle Pete and his uncle's wife Leah with their three year old daughter Rhianna. Jake and Leah are abused by his uncle Pete. So when he meets Lucien and he shows Jake what it is to have someone love you and be good to you they become good friends. Lucien trust Jake and teaches him all about Voodoo and his secrets.

Jake and Henry go to the same school and when Henry beats up the school bully and popular guy in school. Henry and Jake become fast friends. The only friend that either one of them have. Henry has Asperger's Syndrome and he fixates on historical events. After the Haitian earthquake in 2010, Henry remembers all about it and tells everyone.

Henry's church decides to go on a mission to Haiti to help the people there to rebuild their homeland. Henry and his family sign up to go with them. When Lucien and Henry meet and Lucien finds out that Henry is going to his homeland he gives Henry a journal to give to his family. The journal contains all of his Voodoo secrets that will make his family rich.

I wasn't sure that Bad Juju would be something that I would really want to read. But I actually really enjoyed reading it. It was a book that was really hard to put down.

This book is Positively Enthralling !!! I would give this book twice as many stars if possible. In my opinion Dina Rae is a master at her craft. Look out Stephen King this lady is a force to be reckoned with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary good! November 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Tom and Jessica Novak are proud to be doing God's work. They've traveled to Port au-Prince as part of a missionary group with others of their church. They're going to help with rebuilding the island after the 7.0 earthquake that shook all of Haiti, causing massive destruction.

Their 15-year-old son Henry's Asperger's Syndrome had them questioning their decision. He's intelligent and quite functional, but changes in routine, surroundings and new faces could cause problems. Henry doesn't communicate well or understand social interaction.

But Henry's the one that urged them to go. He's been obsessed with Haiti. So here they are, the whole family, including Henry's younger sister Natalie, who'd rather be back home. This is not her idea of a great summer vacation.

Since Henry's been doing so well, they decide to extend their stay. If they had only left earlier, they wouldn't be searching for their missing son. Henry has simply vanished and wandering away from the protection of the armed camp is dangerous. There are a lot of bad people out there and he wouldn't stand a chance against them.

If they had only known the reason Henry wandered away, they never would have brought him there.

My favorite character is Jake. He befriends Henry when they meet in detention class. They aren't really bad boys, just a couple of kids who got in a little trouble.

Jake is a kind-hearted boy, helping out the elderly residents in his trailer park. He does odd jobs, cleans house and run errands for the less able ones. You wonder how he turned out so well when you learn he suffers violent beatings from his uncle. After losing his parents he came to live with his aunt and uncle and his aunt suffers the same abuse.
