    • Witch? Sorceress? Daughter of Satan? Thief? Saint? Born in 1794, Marie Laveau reigned as the undisputed Queen of the Voodoos for nearly a century. Her beauty and powers were legendary, and caused her to be the subject of wild gossip throughout her life. She passed on her secrets to a favorite daughter, who helped her dominate the underworld of voodoo in New Orleans. "It is an absorbing tale, and the emotional undertones, the conflicts in her human relations, the overwhelming loneliness of her po [...]


    • I got this book 'cause I wanted to learn about Marie Laveau's life, little did I know it was a work of fiction. I was putting it off for a while till I came across this very same book on a Voodoo documentary, in which it was said the novel was full of lies and not well researched. My curiosity was piqued again and I started reading. The book covers Laveau's life since she was 25 years of age until she's around 75 years old. It tells how she got into voodoo and how it changed her life, going from [...]


    • A fun fiction about Marie Laveau. This should not be considered any kind of serious text on Voodoo or Marie Laveau, but it is still a lively introduction.



    • The fictionaly biography introduced me to the ways of voodoo as practiced in New Orleans in the 1800s by a free woman of color named Marie Laveau. I learned that free people of color set themselves above and apart from the slaves, felt they were better than the black slaves, and were sometimes opposed to the abolition of slavery. I learned that keeping the title of queen and control over the people among whom one did "work" often involved struggle with upstarts, some from within the queen's hous [...]


    • When I first read this book, I thought it was great. How could you not love the Marie Laveau portrayed in this cheesy novel? Unfortunately, I did a lot of research when I lived in New Orleans (1995-2001), and have since learned many more accurate facts. Now I feel like Tallant tried to sell me the Brooklyn Bridge, and hell, I almost "bought" it.But the first thing that bothered me was that the author tried to make Marie Laveau the consumerist representative of all things "New Orleans". Details o [...]


    • A fictionalized history of New Orleans Queen Voodooienne Marie Laveau. My favorite part was not the voodoo aspects, although that was interesting, but rather the descriptions of the French Quarter. Someone who likes to go to NOLA at lest once a year, I enjoyed the genesis of Congo Park (aka Louis Armstrong Park) and Jackson Square.Not the quickest read, but rewarding if you like New Orleans.


    • I enjoyed this book once I got used to the author's writing style (way too much telling for my taste). The author lets me peek into worlds I've never seen. I understand facts about Marie Laveau are scarce, but the author presented her as an interesting--and fallible--woman.


    • Marie Laveau was quite an interesting and strong woman. Historically the book seemed accurate with yellow fever and cholera outbreaks, as well as the Civil War. Life went on for Marie with all the setbacks. I enjoyed the author's style of writing--this book was written in the 1950s.


    • Tallant has also written a nonfiction research of the life of Marie Laveau. I liked the information I gained about the laws and unwritten laws of colored segregation of the time that were unique to New Orleans.


    • Yes this book is fiction! It says that in the preface. But I enjoyed reading it. It is interesting to get into the mind of this character. I got a feel for voodoo- though it was just a hint. I just wanted to go back in time a bit with a witch. Mission accomplished!


    • This was a fun look into old school New Orleans and into the woman, Marie Laveau, herself. It was worth the $7 at a NO tourist shop.


    • After just having visited New Orleans for the first time, I was inthralled with the story line. Well written and researched. Loved it.



    • I bought this probably five years ago after a cemetery tour. I loved it! Fascinating how a little gossip and gris-gris can scare the living crap outta people!
