Damned by Alexandrea Weis with Lucas Astor

I haven’t read much about voodoo, so this was something different and fun to read. I really appreciated how the author incorporated needed history or information without drowning the reader in long info dumps. I read this in one day and I never felt bored and actually found myself wanting more at the end. I don’t know if the author has plans for a series, but if she does I would enjoy reading more.
Over a hundred years after the death of Magnus Blackwell, Altmover Manor sits abandoned.

  1. I’m not big on paranormal books, but I am willing to keep an open mind with any genre as long as it has romance in it. Is there romance in this book?
