"The Bluffs of Devil's Swamp" I started to read this book and I could not put it down, I read it in 2 days. Intriguing,misterious, suspensful, well written and extremely descriptive; I felt I was part of this book and bacame one of these characters. Through my exploration going back in time and reviving the history and the circumstances, I became Carlotta, the voodoo Queen. It was an amazing and chilling experience. So real, that I want to take a trip and see Devil's Swamp. The end of the book left me wanting more...I sure hope there will be a sequel... A movie would be the ultimate revival.
