Hurricane, the third and final installment of the contemporary voodoo series, explores the themes of corporate greed, environmental issues, and the mysteries of the spiritual world. In Hurricane, we find Marie has now settled in accepting the destiny handed down by her great-great grandmother, Marie Laveau and power entrusted to her. Naturally feisty by nature, Marie has a very strong sense of right and wrong, accepting the challenges presented to her.Read more ›
The tale of Marie Laveau begins in 19th century New Orleans in Rhodes's first book, Voodoo Dreams. The next two spell-binding mysteries, Season and Moon, move into the 21st century with Marie's namesake descendant and spiritual heir, an ER doctor who combines her medical and spiritual talents.
Hurricane, her most recent book (released April 12th) opens with a newly vulnerable Marie in 2005. She's lost many of the people she has relied on, and when she's drawn deep into the Mississippi Delta to confront a foul and destructive force, she is more alone than ever. Does the danger she faces in a town where everyone seems curiously ill arise from some ancient African spirit or a greedy oil company or corrupt politics? As Katrina threatens, the ghosts of a murdered family fill her with a burning desire to bring them justice. As usual, Marie inspires sexual attraction and intense loyalty in the men around her--or violence and a desire to destroy this powerful woman who draws her strength from the memory of racial injustice, the rites of Voodoo, and the inspiration of the smart women who came before her.
If you like your "can't put it down" mystery reading infused with an inspiring take on what womanhood can be in all its aspects, then this is the book for you.
In this installment of the series, Marie is raising her daughter and practicing medicine in New Orleans when a nightmare compells her to take a drive. She stumbles upon a murder scene in a small town and is soon drawn into the drama of the community as they recognize her as a voodoo queen and demand her healing powers. During her investigation she uncovers an environmental disaster and all the while a hurricane known as Katrina looms in the distance.
Especially interesting was learning about the devastation done to the Gulf way before Hurricane Katrina hit and exploring the supernatural reasons and ramifications.

Last book of the series and I wish there were more coming. Of course you have to be interested in Voodo and New Orleans culture. The book also arrived in great condition.Published on January 3, 2014 by B. Battistoni

Great book! The story was quite a journey through the Louisiana swamp lands. A little political but a great read none the less.Published on June 14, 2013 by stephanie
The last installment of the Marie Laveau series by this author. I enjoyed this last episode more than the middle books. The first and the last are, in my opinion, the best.Published on October 31, 2012 by J. Wiley
