Indie Summer Book Review

Voodoo Dues (Lian and Figg #1)Voodoo Dues by Stephany Simmons

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stephany Simmons’ first novella Voodoo Dues is an entertaining and intriguing ride.

Figg, the gun-toting, surprisingly resourceful heroine, was so much fun! She was a very well-written character, and no scene could fall flat with her in place. I can’t wait for more Figg!

The hero is more mysterious. He’s an intriguing combination of bookish and experienced. I get the feeling we’ll be drawn deeper into Lian’s world in the second book.

Other characters were also well developed for a novella, and the plot was interesting, with lots of magical and paranormal elements. The book moved quickly and I enjoyed the action, interspersed with snarky Figg and some blossoming romance.

Well done, Stephany Simmons. I highly recommend Voodoo Dues!
