Upon the passing of her beloved grandmother Melody Bennet receives startling instructions. This was an okay book The plot was interesting to a point but then all these crazy coincidences started happening But then I reminded myself that it's a paranormal book so crazy stuff does happen I felt there were too many characters some extraneous some just popping up at the last minute The heroine Melody said that she felt like she was in a movie with too many characters I felt exactly the same way Finally there were typos misspellings grammatical errors etc But not as many as in the author's other book I recently read Killer in Sight A Tom Lackey Mystery

    Hailing from suburban North Carolina Melody is thrown into what is for her the mysterious and exotic world of voodoo by her Grandmama a white practicing voodooist Melody encounters many well developed characters along her journey of finding the powerful Book of Obeah As a first novel for Sandra Carrington Smith The Book of Obeah is a shinning achievement Though not derivative Carrington Smith's work has some of the mysticism pace and suspense of DaVinci Code The Book of Obeah is actually filled with suspense and towards the end it works really well as a psychological thriller The Book of Obeah the novel is a complex book in much the same way as the famed real life Book of Obeah Carrington Smith's book is part novel part teaching text building a better understanding of the intricate complexities of voodoo and its multi hued practitioners

    This book contains a lot of historical information about the Voodoo religion as well as some of its beliefs and practices It is also a suspenseful tale as it follows Melody Bennett in her uest to fulfill her grandmother's dying wishesWhen Grandmama Giselle dies she leaves instructions for Melody to take her ashes to a remote bayou in Southern Louisiana First Melody has to find her Grandmama's childhood friend and have the ashes blessed Melody soon finds herself in possession of an ancient text called the Book of Obeah which Giselle has said that Melody must protect Melody soon finds herself in the middle of a battle between various factions who want the Book Along the way she learns a lot about herself and the practice of Voodoo while at the same time meeting a sexy homicide detective named MarioThe author does a great job in describing the bayou region and the atmosphere surrounding it and New Orleans She has obviously done a lot of research into the Voodoo religion as well She weaves a very intricate web of characters and backgrounds to a open ended conclusion that could possibly lead to booksThe narrator Dave Fennoy does a great job with the various voices for the characters My only complaint would be that the sound was very low and I had a hard time hearing it even with my Kindle volume set at maximum

    It is safe to say that my thoughts of voodoo were limited prior to last year When I thought of voodoo I thought of black people animal blood sacrifices dark spooky nights and death I mean who knew it is actually a religion and people use it's teachings for good and bad like any other religion Now thanks to Sandra Carrington Smith I now know that voodoo has diversity among its practitioners Oh the ignoranceGiselle said something that really got me to thinking about how important it is to not leave things unsettledIs there anyone in this world without regret when death is near GiselleOverall this is a great read Dave Fennoy was an amazing narrator He gave this book the spookiness it needed The characters were well developed and I didn't get them confused There are mysteries within mysteries and discoveries within discoveries I do recommend this read if you enjoy mysteries and thrillers Now I'm off to read book two

    I really liked this story a lot The story hooks you from the beginning The narrators voice is spellbinding I thought the characters in this book were all black with the exception of Marie and eventually Bertrude I don't know if I missed it early on in the book the details of their ethnicity but I found out around ch 16 or 17 I feel like I should put a Spoiler Alert on this review because I was surprised to find out that Melody and family were white It did change how I felt about the book in how I interpreted the characters This is the first book in a trilogy and I will finish the trilogy

    Ok of ObeahThe book was a good read but once again a white woman had to save black people from what has always been theirs Hi I g black people no credit for what they originated As always the ones who the culture originated from were the villains Typical stereotypes

    Meh it was well written enough to hold my attention There are some aspects of the story I’m unsatisfied with But for entertainment purposes Great But a legitimate discussion of Obeah nope
