The Red Man is coming …
Five years after her sister disappeared, seventeen-year-old Adrienne finds the strength to return to her father’s home in New Orleans. But soon after she arrives, the mark of a curse appears on her, leaving her worried. Will she be the next victim of a four-hundred-year old family curse … the next to be claimed by a serial killer roaming the back alleys of the city?
The day before his senior year begins, Jayden is given a skeleton key passed down through his family for generations — a gruesome reminder of how his ancestors betrayed their own people and sold them into slavery. He doesn’t believe in the curse the key allegedly bears and puts it away with the intention of forgetting about its message. Until he meets Adrienne, a girl he’s compelled to for more reasons than her beauty.
He’s not the only one who notices her. A man in a skeleton mask and a voodoo gang member are also drawn to Adrienne. One is determined to protect her. The other intends to mislead her. Haunted by the mythical Red Man, all are connected to the ancient curse.
Can they overcome their misgivings about one another and prevent the dark prophecy looming over them? Or will they be lured away from each other by evil’s siren song?
***Amy #NerdGirlAmy’s ARC Review***
When I was given the opportunity to read and review this book I took it right away I had heard some great things about this author and wanted to find out for myself! This is the first book I have read by her so it was exciting to read something by someone new!! I really like the idea of this book its definitely not something I’ve ever read before I like that the author took an old tradition involving voodoo but put a modern twist on it. The story is absolutely wicked (in a good way) and at times gave me the chills!! What I enjoyed most about this book is how the characters are so different but they come together through this strong connection they have from their past to solve something that was put on them so many years ago
The chemistry between the main characters was amazing and Adrienne really grows on you as time goes on. She seems naive yet a strong willed girl who is determined to solve what happened to her sister Therese five years before. The mystery and suspense was in perfect balance kept me reading and wanting to find out what really was going on until the very end.
The ending left me absolutely wanting more and it’s just not possible to have to wait so long to find out what happens next. Well played author, well played.. LOL
