    1. Possible spoilers for the first book.While I liked the first book in this series, it wasn t as rich and action packed as this one It starts right where Black Dust Mambo ended Kallie is after her missing cousin Kallie s secret is not the only one that comes to light here Jackson, her cousin, has his own problems Someone buried him alive trying to make him a zombie Fortunately for him, his dog doesn t give up easily And the ones who buried him didn t know just how special he is.Something is wrong [...]


    2. Originally posted at Favorite Quote I can find you anywhere Anytime Yo heart be mine Kallie Riviere, hoodoo woman At the end of Black Dust Mambo, Kallie learned a lot about her family and none of it good She has a black loa in place of her soul, her aunt stole someone else s identity and they want it back, and her favorite cousin has vanished Now spells are backfiring, wards are failing, and a category five hurricane is heading towards New Orleans Kallie fears that Doctor Heron may have triggere [...]


    3. At 416 pages, it says an awful lot that I wanted this book to continue I didn t want it to end As much as I enjoyed Black Dust Mambo, I liked Black Heart Loa L begins immediately where BDM left off Kallie, Belladonna, Gabrielle and Divinity are still in Bayou Cypres Noir, dealing with the events of BDM Jackson, Kallie s hot pirate cousin, is missing and his mojo bag is discarded on the floor Kallie knows there is something wrong, and sets out to find Jackson.Layne, who had been driving home, cha [...]


    4. Wow That was fun.Black Heart Loa is the second book in Adrian Phoenix s Hoodoo series The book picks ups immediately after the events of Black Dust Mambo and works up into an exhilarating pace as it continues the story of Kallie Riviere, a young hoodoo who carries an unknown loa inside her If you ve read the first book, you couldn t have possibly missed the fact that Kallie spent nearly 75% of that book in her underwear Well, in this book, she is suitably attired well, at least 75% of the time. [...]


    5. Black Heart Loa RATING 1 stars regrettably, because the concept wasn t half bad What a mess of a book Kallie Rivi re is supposedly the main character but after two books there is almost zero development Why Because everyone and their uncle has a POV in the damn book Kallie, her aunt, her friends, her crush, random witches, hoodoos and the likes, villains, magical beings, even, I kid you not, a dog although I rather liked the dog, actually Inside each POV you have multiple flashbacks told in pres [...]


    6. So amazingly awful 1 Truly unlikable characters2 Cringworthy reverse sexism throughout I was flinching every time another female character referred to a man in the room as a fine piece of ass just revolting Sexism is not okay.3 Characters with little or no emotional depth.4 Unimaginative plotting5 Confusing back stories she was pretending to be her and that one was pretending to be her ad nauseum6 patronising use of cajun slang in the written form We all have accents that deviate from the writte [...]


    7. As far as I can tell, this is the last book of the Hoodoo series, which is kind of sad The story was good The only thing I didn t like was the sex I really wish that there was a way to tell which books are going to have so much sex I know, there s the paranormal romances, but a lot of good books, without having the all the sex stuff are not classed in that category There is even a list here on for Paranormal books without sex not sure of exact name , so there is definitely a group of people who [...]


    8. Second in the Hoodoo urban fantasy series that revolves around Kallie Rivi re, her family, and her friends This one takes place in the Louisiana bayous.My TakeI m a little bummed that this wasn t as good as Black Dust Mambo It was, however, still a good read The stupidity of the two home invaders was pretty funny with some scary moments.Hmmm, I did wonder if Basil would give up being in Layne s body It s just too much fun having him in there I also enjoyed Cielo s thoughts with her Daddy s Get i [...]


    9. Originally posted at WickedLilPixie ReviewsBlack Heart Loa is the much anticipated second book in Adrian Phoenix s Hoodoo series, and picks up immediately where Black Dust Mambo ends, with the characters sitting in Divinity s living room Kallie Rivei re is a Hoodoo, meaning she handles juju and potions and medicines Her best friend Belladonna is a mambo in training Kallie s aunt Divinity is also her hoodoo teacher and sits near the real Gabrielle LaRue who is a mambo, or voodoo priestess, and de [...]


    10. .dis ain t just a house full o women Dis be a house full of hoodoos My favorite quote Kallie is a headstrong hoodoo apprentice, but what lies beneath the surface may be a ticking bomb When Kallie was a little girl her mother removed her soul and replaced it with a sleeping loa If finding out how to remove this loa without causing her own death was not enough, Kallie must struggle to survive the revenge Doctor Heron has brought upon her family She already escaped him once, but not without ill ef [...]

Review posted here offbeatvagabond 2011 08 book review black heart loa hoodoo 2 byml Black Heart Loa picks up immediately after Black Dust Mambo Kallie is on the search for her cousin, Jackson, who has been kidnapped It is up to her to find out by who and why She has a feeling it is connected to Doctor Heron, but there is a lot going on than anyone knows While being robbed by two idiot robbers named Cash and Kerry, they find out that Jackson is in bigger trouble than they thought and they are r [...]


    12. Have you ever read a book that failed to keep you interested for about 80% of the time, but you still were determined to finish That s exactly how I feel about this seriesd for that reason, I do not know how to rate this book The start did not pull me in like the first book in this series, but I still wanted to continue because I was hoping of a romance would be developedo bad it never does, but there is a new love interest The middle dragged, much like it did for me in BLACK DUST MAMBO I began [...]


    13. Black Heart Loa starts at the exact moment that Black Dust Mambo ends There are many problems that the main character Kallie Riviera and her friends and family experience in the first book and they have to deal with the aftermath of those original issues along with some new ones Finding her cousin Jackson, taking care of her love interest Layne, dealing with secrets and a hurricane that is on it s way to Louisiana.I feel that this book is a bit focused than the first and the points of view didn [...]


    14. This is one of those awkward books where we find ourselves having differing opinions about the series however we believe this is one of taste than impressions or fails a case of your mileage may vary Still, one of us is quite happy to read this series, another would rather clean tile grout.Keille Riviere, hoodoo and persistent user of a right hook to solve all problems is still facing the fall out of the events of Black Dust Mambo Doctor Heron s misplaced crusade of revenge still casts long sha [...]


    15. Fast paced, which I love in a book excellent descriptive narrative, interesting characters Adrian sucks you into her world and keeps you on the edge and wanting for Black Heart Loa is the follow up from Black Dust Mambo A fiery Cajun hoodoo woman who likes to emerse herself in serious life threatening problems that nearly kills her and everyone in near vicinity This book picks up 24 hours after Black Dust Mambo finished Kallie Riviere finds her cousins mojo protection bag that was hanging aroun [...]


    16. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyWhile I knew BLACK DUST MAMBO was going to be a hard act to follow, my surprises in reading BLACK HEART LOA had nothing to do with those high expectations LOA was a different breed of book all together, as the story line changes from the human villains of BLACK DUST MAMBO to the amorphous magical threats It took me a few chapters to change gears, but despite that slow start I devoured the last two thirds of this book.One of the changes that took me a b [...]


    17. Layne Layne Layneyou are so sexy, even when you are unconscious for half of the book.This book was fantastic, it picks up right where book one ended Jackson is missing so it s up to Kallie and Bell to find him But they are delayed by two gun toting idiots demanding Jackson s stash of goodies Then Kallie is attacked by a Loa of Death, on top of that magic is backfiring and they need to figure out why because it s causing wards to malfunction and act as a magnet for hurricanes Kallie has her hands [...]


    18. Now don t get me wrong, I do like this series, but I m having a hard time believing that Kallie is the main character Honestly sassy comeback line or smelly smells of something smellygood seem the likely candidate of the main nevermind After two whole books I really don t know as much as I would like to know about well a lot And I hate unanswered questions that are left open just for the purpose of having a next book It leaves me grumpy and unsatisfied The book I read before this one dance with [...]


    19. I rather enjoyed this one A lot than the first one Mostly because a lot of questions I had were finally answered.Though reallyis book needed Dallas MmmDallas.Yes there was still a lot of the lusting over everyone in this book The new character of Devlin is, while fun, feels to me like it s just a way to force a love triangle Please God No.I m not entirely sure how I like Layne as a counterpart to Kallie He doesn t seem to do much but be a vessel for Augustine who makes an appearance at the wor [...]


    20. I found this book truly difficult to read I really enjoyed Pheonix s other series and hoped I would like this one I read the first book and liked the concept and the world of Voodoo that was created Unfortunately, I couldn t get past the first chapter in the second book This was not due to the story or the concept but due to the over usage of certain words I think the heroine said Goddamn in almost every sentence The dialogue was so awful that it distracted from the story completely and I had to [...]


    21. Rating 4.0 Genre Paranormal Romance Review Later First thoughtsI dislike having so many character story lines and points of views.I enjoyed the interaction between Belladonna Brown, Kallie and Jackson Some really good lines and quotes coming in my full review.Obviously, there must be a third book in this series because there are still a bunch of unanswer questions including why did her own mother force a loa into Kallie s body Who else was working with Sophia when she put the loa in Kallie What [...]


    22. The Hoodoo series is an oddity in the urban fantasy it focuses on voodoo, hoodoo and witchcraft Continuing immediately after the action of Black Dust Mambo, Kallie s story continues the intrigue, mystery, magical murders, hexes and curses and mystical things Well written and highly unique, the Hoodoo series is exceptional.The setting, as to be expected, is the rich, Gothic landscape of New Orleans The characters are fascinating, well written, and I look forward to the next installment of Hoodoo


    23. French English reviews quelques petits spoilers, surtout sur le tome 1 Ce deuxi me tome reprend tout de suite apr s les aventures du premier livre avec la disparition du cousin de Kallie, la mort du m chant, les grosses r v lations sur la grand m re de Kallie Et on n a pas fini avec les r v lations DComme pour le pr c dent tome, j ai aim les personnages, les intrigues mais surtout j ai ador visiter la Nouvelle Orl ans et ses alentours, l enrichissement de la mythologie avec l apparition de Baron [...]


    24. Black Heart Loa is actually the second in Phoenix s Hoodoo series, the first being Black Dust Mambo Even without reading the first one, Black Heart Loa is easy to follow, and the events of Black Dust Mambo are easily understood, without really having them rehashed to the reader Part of that, I expect, is because Black Heart Loa is dealing with the fallout of the events of Black Dust Mambo, so things get explained in a natural progression in the bookL was a rolicking fun ride through the swamps o [...]


    25. Liked where this character s narrative was going Sadly, no books after this one left too many open ended questions Where s her soul Do they get it back What s in there in place of a loa Not to mention the sexual tension between the two MCs I would have loved to finish out the series Meh, maybe one day



    26. Black Heart Loa, Book 2 of the Hoodoo seriesAuthor Adrian PhoenixSynopsis An eye for an eye is never enough Kallie Rivi re, a Cajun hoodoo apprentice with a bent for trouble, learned the meaning of those ominous words when hoodoo bogeyman Doctor Heron targeted her family for revenge Now, while searching for her still missing bayou pirate cousin, Kallie finds out the hard way that someone is undoing powerful gris gris, which means that working magic has become as unpredictable as rolling a handfu [...]


    27. This was a fairly decent read Action packed from start to finish Kallie and the Scooby gang go searching for Jacks whereabouts but naturally trouble strikes First there is a break in, backfiring magic, and a super nasty spirit wants our favorite vessel, Layne.Everything gets sooo much worse when Baron Samedi gets involved Things just keep going downhill from there too Rest assured however that things turn out alright I still dislike Mckenna, and Belladonna s constant sexual remarks just got on m [...]
