What I liked: “I just think you would be happier if you understood more about yourself. About what you can do.”

Her soft liquid voice cut through the room. “Tell her, Seth. Tell her what you and your friends did to me.”

Faced with the biggest challenge of your life, could you draw upon your inner strength? Would you fear what else doing so could unleash, setting forth a whole new set of circumstances?

But when there is no other choice, how can you not?

Roxanne ‘Roxie’ Mathis uses her special gifts to help others. This time though Roxie needs much more than her usual intuition and inner strength. She will need to summon every ounce of courage and intellect to battle a demon beyond anything she has faced before. Lives are at stake unless Roxie chooses to go beyond the point of no return no matter what the personal costs.

Sonya Clark gives readers a sexy paranormal read in her latest book “Mojo Queen.” With a solid lead character, Clark’s writing is well-paced with strong intrigue and a balance of introspective dialog and compelling narration. As heroines go, Roxie is at once identifiable and likable. Readers will enjoy following Roxie as she takes on a whole new persona to fight against a demon that shows no mercy.

Book blurb: Hoodoo and high magic are on a collision course.

Roxanne Mathis isn’t like everyone else. Not only can she see auras and spectral entities,
she can mix herbs and roots for spells to do good or ill. She can even light a candle without the
benefit of a match. But when she’s hired to exorcise a demon from a young girl, she discovers the limits of her powers.

With her vampire cousin at her side and a sexy sorcerer chasing her on the rebound, Roxie
sets out to send that evil entity back to where she came from. Nothing is as it seems and Roxie’s in over her head. It’s not going to be enough for her to just be a paranormal investigator and old school root worker–to defeat this demon, she’s going to have to be the Mojo Queen.

Content Warning: Language, violence, dark magic, dangerous hoodoo, and a night with a
sexy sorcerer.

Book excerpt: The others joined in, supplying their own calls for the demon’s eviction. Her face twisted with rage. Levi let his bat fall to the floor, opened the bottle of holy water and tossed it at her. Seth threw more salt. She began to sizzle and smoke and scream, a little tornado of pain and fury trapped in a circle. Our chants became louder in an attempt to drown out her screams. A stray thought ran through my brain–this might actually work–then she did something I didn’t anticipate, or even consider possible.

She leapt across the circle’s boundary.

Shock tore a curse out of me and I grabbed the nearest kid. “Run!”
