    1. 4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2016/05/18/I want to say right off the bat, this was the most fun I’ve had with an urban fantasy in ages! Not only was I blown away by the potential—the most I’ve seen when it comes to a new series—Kristi Charish appears to have this uncanny ability to push all my right buttons. I became a fan of hers after the Adventures of Owl, and I’ve been hankering for anything she writes ever since. That’s how this first book of her new series c [...]


    2. 2 StarsVoodoo Killings is not a bad novel it's just not a really good novel either. It lives in that 'meh' territory. The I can take it or leave it type of read. The one that is enjoyable enough at the time but given a few years you'll not remember ever reading it. This novel follow the adventure Kincaid Strange a Voodoo practitioner (a person that raises the dead, talks to ghosts, and has seances) as she gets roped into helping a murder investigation, babysitting a zombie suffering from anesthe [...]



    3. If not for one particularly frustrating thing, I would have adored this book. The thing in question is just a personal preference of mine that shouldn't play any role anywhere else except in my mind (I wish I could ignore it too).The world building is good. You don't get too much of it; you get just enough for the first book in the series. Dealing with ghosts, ghouls, poltergeists and zombies is public, but it doesn't mean the law is okay with it (at least, at this point). Kincaid Strange is a p [...]


    4. The Voodoo Killings is a brand new Urban Fantasy series by Kristi Charish which introduces Kincaid Strange, a voodoo practitioner living in Seattle, Washington. Struggling to make ends meet after losing her job with the Seatle PD and now that raising zombies is technically illegal, Kincaid resorts to making the rent by performing seances. Her roommate, a deceased Seattle grunge rocker by the name of Nate Cade, occasionally assists her with these but it’s often difficult for her to persuade him [...]


    5. Fans of Georgia Kincaid, Kim Harrison and Ilona Andrews will feel right at home slipping into Kincaid Strange’s world. The setting and world had aspects that I am familiar with making it easy to lose myself in the story. Charish added a nice spin to it with the voodoo, world building, and summoning rituals.Kincaid is twenty-seven, broke, single and living in Seattle with a ghost. She is a Voodoo Practitioner who aids police by raising the dead to find out who murdered them. She also does odd j [...]


    6. Sometimes you step tentatively into a book, not quite sure where the intersection of your hopes and expectations will lie. Urban Fantasy is not generally a must-read genre for me, but I’ve become a fan of Kristi Charish’s Adventures of Owl. Having said that, however, I know that much of the appeal in that series (for me, at least) is in the archaeology and the mythology. As such, I really wasn’t sure if I was up for a more, for lack of a better word, generic urban fantasy.Well, let me spar [...]


    7. Originally posted at SmexyBooks-smexybooks/2016/05/review-Favorite Quote: “Look kid, I’m not raising a zombie so you can send it to buy beer.”Kincade Strange is a 27-year-old freelance voodoo practitioner living in Seattle, WA. Hard-pressed for funds and pulling seances for bored, rich kids, Kincade finds herself in the middle of a mystery when she happens upon a zombie who was a famous artist while alive and whose animation looks to be the work of her former mentor. Zombie raising is ille [...]


    8. This review was originally posted at The Book Nympho I started reading The Voodoo Killings and because of finals week at school and work I wasn't able to devour it in one night like I wanted to. My reading time just wasn't my own and I hated having to put the book down each night. I took it with me on a road trip to my sister-in-law's house in hopes that I would get to finish it but again, I had to talk to people instead of reading. LOL Then I saw it was released on audio so I requested it and w [...]


    9. Full Review at Tenacious Reader: tenaciousreader/2016/0Voodoo Killings is a fun and refreshing urban fantasy featuring ghosts and zombies. At the center of this story is Kincaid Strange, a voodoo practitioner struggling to make ends meet in Seattle. Now, what makes her story fun is a combination of her personality (and snark) and the people we encounter through her.Kincaid is definitely the type of protagonist I enjoy. She’s had a life that keeps her expectations and outlook on things in check [...]


    10. There really is too much going on in this book. A great idea is weighed down by excessive clutter. I could have walked away a few times in the first 50% and I seriously considered itI probably would have if any of afew books I'm waiting for had been released.So a 5 Star idea but 3 Star execution.


    11. Wow, this was so refreshing!I miss simple, action-packed, colourful and to the point urban fantasy I fell in love with ten years ago. And Kristi Charish delivers exactly that. This is so like early Anita Blake, Kelley Armstrong, Kim Harrison and Jim Butcher, I absolutely adored it.Kincaid is a woman of many secrets and unbeatable tenacity bordering on suicidal recklessness, very much like Rachel Morgan. The reader is thrown right into action and it's presumed that we are supposed to know the bas [...]


    12. Urban Fantasy can be kind of hit or miss for me, but this one sounded intriguing so I thought I've give it a goKincaid is a 27 year old voodoo practitioner/witch who gets called to help when a mysterious newly risen zombie wanders into her local bar. From there a story unfolds with twists and turns. We meet Nate her ghost roommate. Cameron the newly risen Zombie. Max her practitioner mentor, and Aaron her ex-boyfriend a cop. Along the way we also meet some more zombies, ghosts, poltergeists, and [...]


    13. Ah, voodoo I love you so ;) This was one of those books that's just easy fun. She also managed to surprise me with both the killer's identity and the rather interesting ending. Kincaid Strange is a voodoo practitioner living in Seattle. Most of her business came from working with the police, and thanks to the new Chief of Police (I think he was Chief), practitioners are unwelcome. It's illegal to raise zombies, or at least permanent ones, and the new Chief sees any type of practitioner in the sa [...]


    14. Very different from Owl, Kincaid Strange is more "magic" and less Otherworldly. The action is not as fast paced but just as intense. And where Owl is brimming with personality and quick wit, Kincaid is more cautious and an introvert. Thanks Kristi for not making Kincaid and Aaron's relationship a romance drama. In fact, thanks for making this actually about voodoo killings and less break-up meltdowns. I love this series debut, it has a lot of promise and I'm excited to know WTF and HTH Nate did [...]


    15. This review was first published on Fictional Neverland *I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The Voodoo Killings was an extremely slow paced mystery that thankfully switched it's gear half way through the book. Filled to the brim with zombies, ghosts and poltergeists, the first instalment in a new Urban Fantasy series by Kristi Charish was a solid start for what is yet to come.This story fol [...]


    16. Finished copy provided by the publisher for review consideration.Normally, I'm not much of a zombie person. Or at least, I'm not really much of a horror zombie kind of person. The apocalypse (which usually comes with zombies) doesn't interest me and beyond serving as a metaphor for death that is nipping at ones heels, they just aren't that interesting of a normal paranormal creature to me.Normally.Kristi Charish's Voodoo Killings has made me a fan, of at least her special brand of the classic cr [...]


    17. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy:Kincaid Sinclair has just had her livelihood made illegal, discovers a ghost trap in her lobby and now a random zombie shows up at her favourite bar She's having a rough day in Seattle. And of course, it's rainingE VOODOO KILLINGS takes place in the wet, ghost-filled world of Seattle, where a new police chief has put a stop on using mediums to question murder victims and witnesses, either in zombie or ghost form. Overnight, Kincaid has lost her main so [...]


    18. Really liked this one - I can see the comparisons to Kelley Armstrong, but also felt strong comparisons to the Darynda Jones series and even to Charish's own Owl series. Kincaid took a little getting used to - she's so closed off that there isn't much to connect you with her at first. The info about her past at the end of the book was kind of hinted at, but was still surprising - I'm hoping that future books will play on that a bit more, and will give us a deeper understanding into who Kincaid i [...]


    19. I'm not going to rate this one just yet because I'm DNFing it 50% of the way through. I wish this was better but it's just plain boring. The magic system is way too drawn out and the characters are super flat. Which would I might have been able to look past if this book wasn't set in Seattle.Why is it that people from not Seattle like to write books about Seattle?And why is it that they always get it so wrong?This book puts a heavy emphasis on Seattle politics and how the city voted in a whole b [...]


    20. I wasn’t really in the mood to read any Christmas stories this year except for my Christmas Donald Duck comics, so I decided to read a story that could not have been more removed from anything remotely Christmas-y; The Voodoo Killings. It was dark, eerie, murderous and just what I cravedThe plot was a nice murder mystery with the added ghoul-zombie flavour, straight forward, but with enough mystery to keep my attention.The characters I absolutely adored. From the headstrong and very likeable, [...]


    21. 2.75 stars rounded upIt just didn't grab me much. I ended up putting it down several times over, being distracted with Youtube videos or doing online shopping I couldn't really explain why it didn't. The characters were okay; I couldn't find faults in them. But it just lacked something to make me emotionally root for either one of them *shrugs*. Although I did kind of wanting to know more about Cameron (view spoiler)[except the ending took care of that for me *sad face*. With him gone, and Nate [...]


    22. Thanks Penguin Canada for this book. It's my first urban fantasy read and it was okay. I couldn't compare it to anything as I have never read a book in that genres. It was a good first book in a series, yet it did leave gaps. Like that it didn't describe what happened in Seattle before the events and before the ban on rising zombies and use them and the ban on using paranormal practitioner to help police solve crimes. I wish we were able to be inside Nathan and not just have the story from Kinca [...]


    23. *Source* Random House Canada*Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts*The Voodoo Killings, by author Kristi Charish, is the first installment in a brand new series featuring protagonist Kincaid Strange. Kincaid is a full fledged practitioner (i.e. necromancer) who lives in Seattle and has access to the land of the dead, better known as Otherside. She was once a consultant to the Seattle PD until a new Captain came along and disavowed her. (Before you say this sounds like Anita Blake, just st [...]



    24. Kincaid Strange is one of the only legit Practitioners in the Seattle area, a region that’s proximity to the Otherside results in an unholy number of ghosts, ghouls, and zombies. Practitioners like Kincaid can channel the mystical energy called Otherside that’s connected to the realm of the dead, using it to contact spirits and raise the dead – for a price. Because let’s face it: the rent isn’t going to pay itself.Given her familiarity with illegal work and zombies, it’s essentially [...]


    25. 4.5/5 StarsReview Originally Posted At Goldilox and the Three Weres.You all know how much I love Kristi Charish's The Adventures of Owl series, right? Well, I think this series may have surpassed it. I absolutely adored it! This book was everything I wanted it to be! Zombies! Ghouls! Voodoo outside of New Orleans! Ghosts! Poltergeists! All of these things mixed with bits and pieces from various mythologies made for some A+ worldbuilding, which is something I've come to expect from Charish and en [...]


    26. Originally posted on citygirlscapes.It certainly feels like Kristi Charish is pumping out a new book every month. But you won’t hear me complaining, I loved each one of her Owl books so picking up her new series, The Voodoo Killings, was as natural as breathing. Phone calls from zombies? Mentions of ghosts and other strange supernatural phenomenon? Yes please. But if that wasn’t enough for me, this takes place in Seattle and references dead grunge stars almost constantly. I like to think Cha [...]


    27. There's nothing I love more than a good (and I mean deliciously good) urban fantasy title! It's been a while since I've devoured the Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong, and followed along with Sookie and friends in the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris, so I was hankering (for a very long time) for a brand new heroine that could kick butt with the best of them. Kincaid from Kristi Charish's The Voodoo Killings is just that gal!"Is this Kincaid Strange, practitioner? I [...]


    28. What a wild ride. Going in I wasn't sure what to expect but in the end I LOVED THIS. Kincaid Strange is a no nonsense, stubborn as hell 'practitioner' meaning that she can see, commune and manipulate the 'Otherside'. In a world where zombies, ghosts and ghouls are a almost regular part of life, Kincaid makes a living off her connection with the paranormal. When an undocumented zombie shows up and Kincaid happens to be called to help out she becomes involved in a tangled web of murder, voodoo, gh [...]
