A sinister magic is sweeping across Nash City....
To Fiona Moon, it's just another day at work. And some days, well, they're a helluva lot worse than others. As a member of the elite Black Blade Guard, Fiona is tasked with hunting down the most dangerous paranorm criminals. To find out who is kidnapping mages and sucking the life energy from their bodies, she has to work with the one man who embodies everything she despises.
Master necromancer Ian Barroes, a rich professor of necromantic studies, wants only one thing in this world: Fiona. They each hold secrets that could destroy them - as well as ones that could be the key to destroying the evil voodoo priest, Bokor. They must learn to trust each other and track down Bokor before more innocent lives are lost. When Fiona becomes the target of the evil madman, she's lured into his trap. Now she and Ian have to fight for survival...and their very souls.

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
I think audio is always better!!
Fiona, she is a tough kick butt kinda gal!

The end, when Fiona though she was going to die...she sacrificed herself!
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
Honestly loved it, and want boo 2 asap!! Fiona is kind of a magical police lady....a member of the Black Blade Guard..she investigates paranorm crime and brings those offenders in...well when a bunch of people start to go missing she is brought in to solve the case! I loved this...there is a bit of romance, and a great story behind it all!!!
I RECOMMEND! GREAT STORY AND NARRATION!!!
I remember the first time that I read Voodoo Moon. I was in love with the characters and the world. I had never read a book where dystopia and paranormal merged so well together and keep me engrossed into the entire story.
Fiona Moon is a member of Nash City's Black Blade Guard. She combines both magic and fighting and just makes for a kick a$$ chick. (there really is no other way to aptly describe Fiona) She loves her job and is fiercely loyal to her friends and family.
A new case comes along that she wants to work. Her boss thinks that she would be the one for the job, but the catch is that she has to work with the last person that she thinks she can't stand.
Ian Barroes is a Master Necromancer. He is rich and powerful and only wants one woman - Fiona Moon. Fiona, despises everything that Ian is for. She knows that he is the best one for the job but would rather do anything else then admit that.
As the job of finding who is abducting people around Nash City is getting more dangerous, the tension between Ian and Fiona lights up. Ian is more then willing to lose himself to Fiona, but Fiona is fighting for everything she is worth.
Rebecca Roberts does an amazing job in bringing all the characters of Nash City alive. I love the passion in her voice as Fiona. She brings the whole book to light and puts herself with the characters.
Not only is this a must read by June Stevens Westerfield, but Rebecca Roberts is a must listen to for the series. I hope that she will be the voice for the rest of the series if they go to audio.
Avid Reader when not teaching, being a Mommy, or gamer. Loves just about anything!
I enjoyed the story and world building. It was a good beginning to what I hope to be a new favorite series. I particularly enjoyed the setting as I'm originally from Nashville. It kept me intrigued if I could figure out where the events were happening even though it was Nashville after a Cataclysm.
I liked Ian (the Hero). While Fiona is a good female lead, I found a few times I had to shake my head, but overall I really enjoyed Ian's personality.
This is the first performance I've listened to Ms. Roberts. Her female character voices were well done. Her male character voices were okay. They were distinct, but it would have been a nice listen if the male & female leads were two narrators, as the chapters were set up for each character's point of view.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. It will be a listen, just as this one was. This audiobook was offered in exchange for an unbiased review from audiobook blast dot com.
Rebecca Roberts really brings Fiona to life. I'd previously read this book and loved it, so I was eager to listen to this version, and I was NOT disappointed. This hit all the right notes!
Voodoo Moon is a novel for adults due to language and some sexual scenes.
It is a paranormal book with magic users and "normal" humans and vampires and just a whole host of creatures that any good paranormal book needs. It is also a dystopian style book
I loved everything about this book! the characters, story line, and love story was fabulous and I couldn't put it down! the narration was skilled and a pleasure to listen to.
This is the first book I've read or listened to by this author but it won't be the last.
June Stevens's writing was on point, and the narrator was easy to listen to.
Stevens did a great job building the world of Nash City. It is probably my favorite Urban Fantasy world. As I listened to this story I could see the settings and people. I also really loved that this was a completely new take on dystopian societies with the added bonus of the urban fantasy. I related to the characters, though a few times I wanted to slap Fiona for her stubbornness. It was an endearing stubbornness, though.
I really enjoyed not only getting to know the characters that were the focus of this book, but the secondary characters of the books to follow. It has made me eager to pick up the next in the series. I'm personally really excited to read about River's story, though I am very fond of Anya's sass. I feel like I'd be friends with all three of them.
Even though this is a very dynamic world Stevens has built, it is not one that the reader gets lost in. It is easy to keep up with the scenery and people, and you do not get overloaded with information that you forget where you are and who you're with.
This was definitely a 5-star listen and I recommend this book to any fan of dystopian and/or urban fantasy. The romance is steamy, but is not the main focus of the story.
