Lenore Wolfe's review Jan 24, 12 · edit
Read in January, 2012
In my review of Doomed, I didn't want to give away the loss Cass was forced to endure, as I felt this was one of the major cliff hangers of Doomed and would have needed a spoiler alert, which I steer clear of, so I'm banking on the fact that everyone has read the first two books of this series before reading this one. Jayde is a wonderful writer, and Voodoo's Kiss was the best one in the series yet. I was creeped out by Gael, and the danger I sensed with him sucked me into the story immediately.
In Voodoo's Kiss, Cass needs Sofia to remember her past life as a Voodoo priestess so that she might save her love, who was killed by a vampire in the second book, and break the curse placed on her. You get pulled into this fast paced novel, by Sofia, who keeps getting warned by a crow, can see a demon, one who she's deeply attracted to from the moment she first sets eyes on him, and by the witty Cass, who is a fallen angel, and who is cursed to be a reaper, and then by the vampires from the past books. Throw in lots of wit and humor, and you have one powerful read.
But I was also deeply impressed by the depth of emotion that Sophis showed in her grief and the edge of the sanity, insanity we sometimes walk in our grief, and I enjoyed the deeper spiritual meanings woven into this story as well.
I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves paranormal and fantasy novels alike, and give this series 5 stars as a must read.

After reading Doomed, I couldn't wait to read Voodoo Kiss, I want to 'see' how Cass gets Dallas back. This book doesn't disappointed me for sure but the 'process' of getting Dallas back went a little too fast:) I am glad, however, that Dallas is back and Cass is bubbly again:)
About Thrain and Sofia, I thought Thrain likes Cass before... Of course, Cass wasn't his soul mate:) Again, the 'feelings' between Thrain and Sofia went a little bit too fast for me. But I guess, when one finds one's soul mate, they'll feel the bond and there is such a thing as love at first sight! Yes, I believe:) I am a sucker for such things:)
In All, Voodoo Kiss is intriguing and full of mystery. Full of twists and turns. Never could have guessed about Gael. I suspected he was a bad HUMAN, not a half-Shadow:) Well done, Jayde! Now, looking forward to the next book:)
