#126: Desperate Souls - Gregory Lamberson

Check out the September Zombies Schedule at VVB32 Reads.





They're not breathing. That's why they're so still. But that's not possible...

Eleven months after battling Nicholas Tower and the demon Cain, Jake Helman has set up shop as a private investigator in lower Manhattan. When a woman hires Jake to prove that her dead grandson is dealing a deadly new drug called "Black Magic" on a Brooklyn corner, Jake uncovers a vicious drug lord's plot to use voodoo to seize control of the city.

While panic grips New York City, Jake Helman battles gun-wielding zombie assassins, hallucinations, and betrayal at every corner. But voodoo creates more terror than zombies, and Jake finds himself poised on the edge of insanity as he fights to restore the soul of the one he trusts.

My Opinion:
Totally rad!
Who knew zombies could be smart?! These ones may not win awards for brains, but they definitely are not your normal zombies. These ones are vindictive, and scary as heck!
This book is not for the faint of heart. It's graphic, loads of language, and riddled with drugs. So if you dislike any of the above, don't read it, but if you're like me and feed off violence, this is 100% for you.
I think this is a great story, no matter how far-fetched I believe it to be. I'd still never mess with a voodoo priestess.


5/5


Recommend? Hells, yeah!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
