2.0 out of 5 stars Confusion 20 Oct 2006
By TN reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book left me with more questions than answers. The first chapter comes out with a bang and caught my attention, but did little to keep it as the book continues. It does not mention that it is a sequel to another book, but somehow I am left with the impression that I am supposed to know about what happened to Brand (one of the main characters) prior to the events of this book. His time in a mental hospital and abuses with virtual reality are mentioned vaguely, yet they seem to be important to the movement of this story. Also central to the story is haitian voodoo, yet this is not "fleshed out" enough to really understand. Afterwards, I looked up some of the words and "gods" on the internet and found that the words and names the author used as a powerful, evil entities were actually benefic. For instance, the evil character in the book says that he had called on aido wido and damballa and others too dangerous to name...yet aido wedo is said to be is a loa of fertility, rainbows and snakes, and a companion or wife to Damballa, and damballa is noted to be the father of the loa and of humankind. Many words are thrown around to sound sinister and evil but upon further examination don't have anything to do with such. Maybe they are impressive sounding words and the author never intended that someone would have enough interest to actually find out what she was talking about. The buildup takes almost the entirity of the book with only the last handful of pages winding up the story. I was left feeling rather cheated..."WHAT??? It's over? This is all there is?"
4.0 out of 5 stars Not Too Bad 25 Mar 2012

This wasn't her best book, but it was okay. As the other reviewer mentioned, the points on Voodoo were a bit off, but I really wasn't too overly concerned enough with those details to look them up at the time. To me, it was just a decent thriller. I enjoyed it, but don't remember it being quite as good as her other books. Still, it was fun and kept me glued to my seat so I'd recommend it. It's part of my collection.
