This was a very good story, however, it was evident early in the book that this author new nothing about Cajun people or their language. I am from South Louisiana where the majority of Cajuns live and none of them speak the way these in this book. The syntax of the characters is off. Although, we sometimes use Cajun French words mixed English ones, this would not be in the manner that this author used here.
Cajuns would never say they were having a crawdaddy boil! We never use the term crawdaddy, heck most Cajuns would never say crawdad. I’ve never made a crawfish gumbo. I guess someone may have, but I really doubt it. We don’t ever spell crawfish as crayfish!
A healer in Louisiana is not a conja she/he is a traiteur.
Goujon, which is a mud-catfish, is pronounced “goo jon”.
There were many other inaccuracies in this book. Many times I thought about giving up on the book because the people were portrayed so badly.
If you are not from here, then you will not have any problems with being presented with inaccurate information. If you are from Louisiana and can get past the errors, it is a fast, thrilling story.
I put off reading this book for a couple years. I don’t know why. Today I finally decided to read it. Wow! It’s really good. There is paranormal and especially suspense. A little mystery. It’s one of the best books I have read in a long time. Now I’m off to get the next book in the series.
Definitely kept you guessing, sprinkle of romance with a lot of mystery.
