Book Description

“… light, nerdy, absurdly gory with death count increasing by the hour, but undeniably funny.”
Nocturnal Book Reviews

"Voodoo Dues is a fun, fast paced read, with a lot action, humor, and a little romance."
Tiki – Reader

"Its engaging plot and enticing characters will keep the readers awake even after the book has ended."
Bornean Bookworm Review

From the beginning of Figg’s employment, there is something not quite right about the bar. There are few customers, a parade of neighborhood psychics and pentacle adorned visitors, all coming to hold court with her enigmatic boss. Figg is not sure what is going on, but she is determined to find out!

When the local voodoo queen shows up, and the next morning her grandson ends up dead outside the bar things get interesting.

Figg pesters Lian into telling her the truth about his former life, and is thrust into a world where the things that go bump in the night are real. There’s a murder to solve, zombies to lay to rest and a villain that neither of them saw coming.

“If you’re a fan of Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampires, Laurell K. Hamilton’s early Anita Blake books… you’re going to LOVE Voodoo Dues!"

"It keeps you on the edge of your seat; so what if it's 2:00 AM and I have to get up for work in a few hours, just had to find out how it ended."
Vera Sime – Reader

"Surprising, sexy and fast paced... I couldn't stop reading!"
Alisa Hurkman – Reader

4.0 out of 5 stars very good September 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Figg is a hot-headed girl with a criminal past and a big heart. Dr. Cairn is an attractive anthropologist who is running away from a past that is closing in on him fast. Rene, the town witch, life is in danger from past wrongdoings. Carl, a cross dressing psychic, is being hunted by his master who wants to possess his abilities. What happens when these characters lives cross? Well; zombies, magic, werewolves, vampires and cults, of course.

The story starts with a sneaky suspicion of a budding sexual tension between Figg and Dr. Cairn. Figg being the aggressor and Dr. Cairn afraid of being broken hearted, again. However, Figg becomes his caretaker, and he becomes her protector. Together they battle death, omens, and witchcraft. Soon the two are hired unknowingly to protect Rene from a past acquaintance that is willing to raise the dead to kill her. And if that isn't a large enough job, they also have to keep Carl who travels with a gay ghost, safe from a master who will kill both Figg and Dr. Cairn to get to him. Whew!

This book started right away and took me on a wild roller coaster. The romance between the two love interests made me turn page after page with excitement. The twist and turns with adventure and danger keeps you interested in what's next. This book was a nice opener for the series of "Voodoo" books from Stephany Simmons. If you like all things mystical with a twist of love, fate, and excitement then choose this book, and beware.

Lian is an anthropologist who specialized in paranormal creatures until he got a bit too close to his subject. Figg is a young woman who has walked a bit on the wild side and has the shotguns to prove it. Figg has been working for Lian for a couple of weeks when things start getting weirder. Someone keeps chalking symbols in the sidewalk in front of the bar Lian owns. Then the local Voodoo queen pays Lian a visit and things really start heading for Zombieland.

The story is told in first person by both Lian and Figg in alternate chapters. As the chapters weren't title, this through me at first, but soon I got comfortable with the rhythm of the alternating voices. In this way we get to see some of the scenes from a different view, not as a repetition just as additional information. The tension between Lian and Figg is just enough without being melodramatic. The intimate scenes are glossed over although I believe they can be found in the "companion" for those who need to know the hot and heavy details.

I found this story to bring mystery, adventure, humor and romance. While a couple of times I had to reread a scene to catch all of the nuances, this was rare. As other reviewers mentioned we don't get fully fleshed out characters, but we do get a fleshed out universe. We do learn enough about the characters as to get a hint as to what things in their past have caused them to become the people they have. Lian has a controlling mother and Figg's Dad was a mechanic, with her expertise with a shotgun, I wonder if that means what I think it does.

I am looking forward to finding out in the next installement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Voodoo Dues ( August 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
VooDoo Blues is a fast paced, hilarious, snarky, wild ride of a Novella that shows great promise of things to come. There is almost a Stephany Plum like quality to the madcap zombie shenanigans.

Figg is an attractive young lady in her twenties, who takes a job working at bar to make ends meet. It doesn't take long for her to realize that Lian, her extremely hot, (in a geeky intellectual way), boss isn't the slightest bit upset there is no business in the bar. In fact that is just the way he likes it. Lian is a Dr. of Anthropology. Due to his research, he has somehow become accepted by almost all the supernatural races, who have shared their secrets with him.

A werewolf attack has left him with a touch of PTSD, and he'd really like to just be left alone to research safely behind his office door.

Figg cleans the empty bar, listens to her Ipod and tries to drag Lian back into the mundane world, or at the very least, convince him to let her drag the bar back into the world. All her suggestions (karaoke, poetry reading, live bands, trivia night) are met with shudders from her boss. Meanwhile, she has to deal with all the odd people who keep coming by and leaving him cryptic notes, or who paint protective spells on the sidewalk. In fact it's a veritable parade of psychics and witches. If she didn't need the job so bad, or if she didn't have a crush on Lian...she'd quit. But both of those keep her around, and this leads to all kinds of trouble when Renee Chamtillion, local voodoo queen shows up and even Figg can't keep her out of Lian's office.

Renee's grandson is murdered outside the bar, and the Voodoo Queen tells Figg and Lian her family is being targeted and she wants help finding out why and by whom.
