Every culture has its own myths and legends and folklore, which has been passed down for many generations. When those folklores come to life, you find out what you’re made of. A hurricane hits the Caribbean island, and immediately Corinne Le Mer knows this is no ordinary hurricane… it’s not hurricane season! When Corinne accuses a jumbie, a mythical creature with magical abilities, of creating the tropical storm, she learns the hard way there is something more dangerous than a jumbie.
Corinne has upset the balance and Huracan, the jumbie god, believes the only way to fix the balance is to create a clean slate. The damage caused is catastrophic to the island and can get much worse. Can Corinne, with her friends, help save the people of the island before it’s too late?
I adored everything about this story. It was rich in culture with beautiful characters and subplots. I would advise reading this series in order, which I did not do. I, unfortunately, have a history of doing this, but I was able to follow with no issues. The writing and storytelling were exquisite, engaging, and full of intrigue. This is a story of love, consequences, redemption, and hope. I would love to read how this series begins, and I’m thrilled I was given the opportunity to read this! To quote Corinne, “Wire bend, story end.”
