    It is the late 21st century, and due to the economic breakdown and rising crime rate, nearly every citizen has fled Toronto. The city is a slum, populated by the homeless, the poor, and criminals like Rudy, who uses the power of voodoo to help him control the booming drug market. But also left behind are people like Ti-Jeanne, who hope to use voodoo to help rebuild the city, even as Canada's privileged population turns to Toronto to begin harvesting human organs.

    This is now one of my favorite stories. It took me some time to get into it at the beginning, as well as to get accustomed to the narrator. After a couple chapters or so, it quickly picked up the pace and intrigued me with twist and turns to the end. Great job.

    Miranda Day, known as "Mama Day", is the elderly matriarch of Willow Springs, a small sea island off the southeast coast of the United States. Mama Day finds herself pitted in mortal combat with dark forces that threaten the body and soul of her beloved great-niece, Cocoa, who has gone "mainside" and married an urban Northerner.

    I am so sorry, but I can't seem to finish listening to this audiobook. I love audiobooks, and I prefer to listen than to read. However, the narrators of this book are making it difficult for me to do that. One (the first one) seems to have a speech impediment, and another seems to be going at an usually fast pace, almost like he's ranting for no reason. A total of three so far, and they're voices are all very distracting. Also, the first couple chapters seem to be all over the place, and oddly I'm having a hard time retaining all the characters and their relations to each other. It's too drawn out. Perhaps if I read the book for myself I would have a different outlook. Sorry, poor choice on the narrators. Perhaps I'll come back to it at another time in my life.
