Hoodoo and high magic are on a collision course.
Roxanne Mathis isn't like everyone else. Not only can she see auras and spectral entities, she can mix herbs and roots for spells to do good or ill. She can even light a candle without the benefit of a match. But when she’s hired to exorcise a demon from a young girl, she discovers the limits of her powers.
With her vampire cousin at her side and a sexy sorcerer chasing her on the rebound, Roxie sets out to send that evil entity back to where she came from.
Nothing is as it seems and Roxie’s in over her head. It’s not going to be enough for her to just be a paranormal investigator and old school root worker – to defeat this demon, she’s going to have to be the Mojo Queen.
In Sonya Clark’s Mojo Queen, protagonist Roxanne Mathis is pitted against, the ex-girlfriend from hell, literally.
She’s hired by uber sexy (yes, he dripped with sex appeal) sorcerer, Blake to send his ex back to hell, but his demon girlfriend is a worthy foe, not to be dismissed so easily. And yes, there is quite a bit of chemistry between Blake and Roxanne. Enough that I can’t wait for another dose of it,
Throughout the novel, Roxanne is aided by her cousin, vampire, Daniel Rambin. Daniel is a fun vampire. He’s not broody, nor is he truly mysterious. He’s fun—in the same way a pet tiger is fun. He’s adorable, yet you know he could tear your throat out in a less than a heartbeat.
In Mojo Queen, Clark has managed to weave southern attitude, great music, and sex appeal into a welcomed tale well-suited for the urban fantasy genre. I highly recommend this read.
