From Publishers Weekly
In Rhodes's superb sequel to 2006's Voodoo Season
, a wazimamoto, or African vampire, stalks Dr. Marie Laveau, a 21st-century doctor, modern voodoo practitioner and descendant of the legendary Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. Haunted by the unquiet spirits of people killed by the wazimamoto, the young doctor vows to stop it with the help of new boyfriend NOPD Det. Daniel Parks; her Creole boss, Dr. Louis DuLac; and others devoted to Marie and her young adopted daughter, Marie-Claire. As the blood of the victims nourishes the vampire so it can completely assume human form, Marie must summon all her powers to vanquish it. Rhodes includes an informative author's note about the evolution of the African vampire as a response and a warning about racist brutality and cultural vampirism, giving some cultural weight to this hypnotic thriller.
