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.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS NOVELLA....

This is a pleasant little diversion, with characters who could become interesting one day. It does, alas, have a certain, by-the-numbers style, with a breezy, simplistic writing style (both prose and plotting) that is laconic and lacks force. Tension does not build. Big events have about the same impact as little ones. Sometimes it feels more like you're reading a screenplay than a book, or an outline of a book. Yawn, at times. The technical aspects of writing are fine. The parts that make it a craft are missing. This may have some potential, though, and it is fun at times. The tension and back-story that should develop on the characters could be entertaining--but very little of that is here.

I loved this book. Voodoo Dues is a quick read with the details and action of a much longer book.

Eleanor Figg works for Dr. Lian Cairn is his bar as a bartender/assistant. What she doesn't know is that Lian is an anthropologist that has ties to the supernatural world that she had no idea existed. When the local Voodoo Queen shows up asking to speak with Lian, Figg starts to wonder who her boss really is. Figg is about to learn that witches, zombie, and a lot more supernatural creatures really do exist.

In Voodoo Dues we get to read from both Figg and Lians point of view which I loved since both characters are so different. Stephany writes a great story and all of the characters have their own personalities. If you love some mystery, sexual tension, voodoo, zombies and lots more in a book that will make you laugh out loud this is the book to read.

First the bad, then the good.

The bad: The writing wasn't great. It was skeletal, missing a lot of important bridgework between scenes and actions. The characters weren't nearly as fleshed out as they could be, and the grammar was a bit stilted in places.

The good: the characters were, in fact, awesome, and the story was very well thought out. I liked the premise and the plot and the ending was awesome (Childs' comment had me rolling.) Assuming that the writer will get better with time, definitely looking forward to more of this.

Basically, while this has flaws it's still really good and future stuff from this author is likely to improve at a steady rate.
