Case she takes the chance to mend fences with the police department The problem they want to interview Nate's ghost which she can't produce Then people from Nate's past start showing up dead and what's killing them doesn't seem to be human And the way it's killing them is especially brutal Nate's hiding something but he's Kincaid's friend and she wants to help him But she also wants to stay ali Rating 35 of 5 starsShort Summary Kincaid Strange voodoo practitioner finds herself searching for a solution when her roommate ghost grunge rocker Nathan Cade comes home bound to a body risen from the dead Things take even of a turn for the worse when people from Nathan s past are being killed in gruesome ways and the local authorities begin to suspect Strange of being involvedThoughts It s hard for Urban Fantasy to be anything but formulaic however Charish manages to incorporate enough uniue details to make this feel like something refreshingly original Between the vast array of paranormal beings and the wide cast of memorable characters this is one series to be paying attention toVerdict The world building that Charish laid the groundwork for means that hopefully there are many installments in the crazy life of Kincaid Strange to look forward to I also desperately hope that Susannah Jones continues to narrate her adventures because she does an absolutely superb job I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review

Lipstick Voodoo Kincaid Strange #2

Kincaid Strange not your average voodoo practitioner is back in the freshly imagined and hugely entertaining second installment of Kristi Charish's urban fantasy series Kincaid Strange cannot catch a break After dealing with a spate of paranormal murders there's barely time to recuperate let alone sleep in before there's a new problem in Kincaid's world of paranormal activity When her roommate 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum was nice getting back into the world of Kincaid Strange with Lipstick Voodoo and reading it has made me realize how much I d missed this kind of urban fantasy Thing is I m just not reading as much of the genre as I used to I ve gotten pickier these days and my UF reads are mostly limited to series I ve already started and to only books that I feel are breaking the mold While I would hesitate to label the Kincaid Strange novels as typical admittedly they do follow a certain type of formula containing a lot of the tropes often associated with the genre At the same time though I m guessing that s where all the warm and fuzzy down earth vibes I m getting are coming fromLipstick Voodoo is the seuel to The Voodoo Killings and picks up soon after the events of the first book As one of the only few licensed and legit paranormal practitioners on the entire west coast Kincaid Strange has got her hands full with new jobs and yet she s still always nearly broke At the moment simply trying to keep her zombie roommate alive and in one piece is draining her bank account Nathan Cade used to be a pretty big deal on the 90 s Seattle grunge scene before he died in a boating accident at the height of his fame and until recently he s spent the last two decades or so continuing his musical career as a ghost But now due to a magical ritual gone wrong he is trapped in an animated corpse that is slowly decomposing and if Kincaid doesn t find a solution to the problem soon his spirit will die along with its vesselMeanwhile Kincaid is also in trouble with Gideon the ghost of a sorcerer who is currently furious with her for destroying a body he had intended to inhabit Now Gideon figures she owes him a huge debt and he s not going to rest until it is exacted As if her life wasn t complicated enough Kincaid is also trying to sort out her feelings for Aaron her ex boyfriend who is a detective on the police force The reopening of a twenty year old paranormal case has led to Aaron calling her up for her expertise and the fact that it involves a murdered rocker who was a contemporary of Nathan Cade s has both the detective and our protagonist wondering if her undead roommate may have had something to do with the deathLipstick Voodoo was everything I wanted fast and fun with just the right amount of offbeat humor and charm We mostly have our main character to thank for that In some ways Kincaid Strange reminds me a bit of a modernized Anita Blake but savvier and less raunchy most likely due to her supernatural ability to draw energy from the otherworld to fuel her necromantic magic But while she may conform to the familiar archetype of the urban fantasy female protagonist eg strong and independent to the point of preferring to work alone having few female friends and strained relationships with remaining family members always getting in trouble with the powerful head honchos of the paranormal community because of her snarky sometimes impetuous attitude dealing with a tricky situation with an on again off again beau etc etc etc Kincaid also possesses a number of ualities that endeared me to her personality For one thing unlike a lot of bull headed heroines who can t see past their own self importance she knows what her weaknesses are and isn t afraid to take an L if it means fighting another day She s also very loyal to the people she cares about And slowly but surely she s coming around to the idea that it s okay not to have to fight one s battles aloneOn the world building side of things I m once impressed As any fan of this genre knows establishing the setting and a sense of place is always a huge component of an urban fantasy series and I like how Kristi Charish is continuing to build upon her paranormal version of Seattle with an eye towards detail and atmosphere Not only has she populated her world with all manner of creatures from ghouls to ghosts she s taken care to include examples of how the presence of the supernatural has also impacted everyday life Incorporating the musical culture of the city into her story was also a stroke of genius I d liked this aspect when I read the first book and was thrilled to see it carried through to this seuelLipstick Voodoo also ties up several plot threads from the previous novel while introducing new ones to look forward to For a series that only has two books out right now Kincaid Strange is already flowing like an extremely well oiled machine with the promise of even uirky and entertaining stories to come I am looking forward to the next adventure starring our plucky heroineAudiobook Comments I made the switch from print to audiobook with this installment a decision I do not regret at all I generally find that most urban fantasy works great in audio especially with a book as light and fun as Lipstick Voodoo As a bonus Susannah Jones was fantastic as narrator possessing the perfect voice and cadence to portray Kincaid Strange but she also delivered incredible performances for all the other characters If you re an audiobook listener thinking about checking out this series I highly recommend this format
