My Review

5 of 5 Residue

First I have to say that I love stories focusing around New Orleans and Witch Craft. New Orleans has such a rich cultural background and a history of all kinds of witch craft and voodoo that it intrigues me every time I read a story about it. Residue was no different for me and this is going to be a series I will read and re-read for years to come. It just grabs you into a new world and life that it will keep you on the edge of the seat.

Jocelyn is away at boarding school when she is told that she is leaving school and moving to New Orleans. Not really understanding what is going on Jocelyn talks to her mother who tells her everything is okay and yes she is going to be going to New Orleans to stay with family members. Once Jocelyn gets there she is unprepared for what waits her. She is unprepared for the evil that lurks in every corner until she meets her soul mate Jameson Caldwell. Jameson does things to Jocelyn she never knew she could feel. But there is one small draw back to all of this see the Caldwell's and The Weatherford's have been feuding for centuries and they refuse to let these two have any kind of relationship.

There are things that Jameson and Jocelyn don't know about and reasons why everyone wants them apart. But the two have decided they are soul mates and no one will keep them apart. They will fight with all they have to stay together. But evil lurks in every corner and they find that it is going to be very hard to fight others and stay together. Is the fight worth it in the end? Will Jameson fight for Jocelyn? Will Jocelyn fight for Jameson? Who are the seven and what do they want with Jameson and Jocelyn? This story is so full of action and secrets and lies and surprises it will keep you riveted to your seat! This is a MUST READ series!
