Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess: Soulless
Soulless and vengeful proves a lethal combination for those who have wronged her.

The time is 1890, the place, New Orleans, and Odara is lost to Madame Lilly, her soulless side—and she has not finished what she started. Unleashing two great forces, Theolus and Hearon, with ferocious appetites against her common-law husband, Henry Nicholas, is just the beginning of the end for Lilly—only she doesn’t know it yet.
For the spirits she raised took what was left of her humanity and left a piece of themselves within her; a piece that craves chaos. Needing to maintain control over them to do her bidding, Lilly must do what is required even if it means becoming more like them.

Tortured, scorned and damned, Lilly has one mission in life: Retribution.

Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess: Soulless (Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess, #2)My Review
Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess: Soulless By Dormaine G.
My Rating:
In a classic battle between good and evil, Odara, the good side of Madame Lilly, has lost the battle for dominance. A soul can only take so much abuse before it shatters and revenge is required. In a region where voodoo and spiritual beliefs and superstitions are like breathing, Madame Lilly is turning to the dark side seek retribution against her common law husband, a brutal and vicious man. It comes in the shape of dark forces that threaten to overwhelm her, if she is not careful, can she stop their takeover of her soul? Does she want to?

Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess: Soulless by Dormaine G. begins by plunging us deep into dark action in the Louisiana swamplands. The scene comes to life immediately with the sounds of the creatures of the wild, from bloodthirsty mosquitoes to equally bloodthirsty alligators, waiting on their next meal, never mind the demonic torture of a man bound to a tree. From there forward, the darkness and tension continues in a style that Dormaine G. has perfected. Tight prose, full of graphic descriptions and atmosphere, all condensed into a quick read that has the punch of a much longer tome, this series is as satisfying and darkly magnetic as any I have read. Looking for a quick read that will chill your bones with its intensity and darkness while touching on the practice of voodoo and the lives of the helpless in nineteenth century Louisiana? It’s all here, well-done and waiting to be read!
