There is a darkness falling over the crescent city during the most cheerful times of the year. And there is a mystery that begs to be solved.

Charlotte Summers is forced to come home after the death of her biological parents. Having been raised by her grandmother, a voodoo priestess, she returns to say her good-byes to her parents that she knew little about, and support her grieving grandmother. Soon after returning, she loses her high school sweetheart to a weaseling cheerleader.
Tina, Charlotte’s best friend, is there for her through it all.

But things change New Orleans in a dark way after the arrival of a mysterious man, Cassius, whom bought the Nottoway Plantation shows up. Murders start to occur, dead bodies drained of blood and shriveled up like mummies are floating in the Mississippi River, and dumped in dark alleys.

As Charlotte is drawn to the Mysterious new owner of the Nottoway Plantation, she is pulled into a world that is dark, dangerous, alluring… and turning the Mississippi river blood red.

Are Charlotte and Tina safe from the horrors that surround them, or are they just the next victims to a creature of legend?

***#NerdGirlBecca’s Review***
New Orleans, Voodoo, a masquerade ball, and two amazing characters and you have the perfect book.

Charlotte has everything going for her, and then all of a sudden it isn’t. After her parents death, things start to fall apart quickly, and I have never felt so immensely connected to a character than I did with Charlotte. N.A. Wetzel spins a tale of love, and mystery that so many author’s have attempted to create but nothing compares to this. I can’t go into too much detail, but anyone who is a fan of the paranormal, or anyone who wants to look into the Voodoo arts surrounding New Orleans than you need to check out this book.

I must be going through a New Orleans faze, because this is the second book that I have chosen with a New Orleans theme, but it is just so rich in mystical and supernatural history that it definitely needs to be told. This is a wonderful read and really kept me on the edge of my seat.
