This Wicked Game by Michelle Zink
Release Date: November 14th, 2013 by Dial


S u m m a r y :

Claire Kincaid’s family has been in business for over fifty years.

The voodoo business.

Part of the International Guild of High Priests and Priestesses, a secret society that have practiced voodoo for generations, the Kincaid’s run an underground supply house for authentic voodoo supplies. Claire plays along, filling orders for powders, oils and other bizarre ingredients in the family store, but she has a secret.

She doesn’t believe.

Struggling to reconcile her modern sensibilities with a completely unscientific craft based on suspicion, Claire can’t wait to escape New Orleans – and voodoo – when she goes to college, a desire that creates almost constant conflict in her secret affair with Xander Toussaint, son of the Guild’s powerful founding family.

But when a mysterious customer places an order for a deadly ingredient, Claire begins to realize that there’s more to voodoo – and the families that make up the Guild – than meets the eye.

Including her own.

As she bands together with the other firstborns of the Guild, she comes face to face with a deadly enemy – and the disbelief that may very well kill her.

Reason for waiting:
I have a strange relationship with books that take place in New Orleans. I love reading them but I always think I'll be disappointed even though I don't know what my bars are raised at lol. But this sounds interesting. New Orleans? Voodoo? Ooooh.


What are you waiting for this week?

  4. This definitely sounds good, and I've always loved Michelle Zink's books. Will be reading this one for sure (although I'm secretly hoping they change the cover before it's released---this one does not wow me at all).
