    I thought this story was well done and a good storyline. Physical attack as much as psycilogical. The first I’ve read from this author and I look forward to more. A steal at a pro-mo price!

    I wanted to like this book. It seemed to have a lot of promise. I adore books set in New Orleans. I think this book had potential. There were drawbacks that were hard to ignore. There is almost no background to speak of. I was and am still completely confused about the main character. In the beginning you would assume she was young as she is living with her parents and in the manner they speak to her. Then she travels from there (wherever that is, I was never able to figure that out) to her aunts on her own and seems to have a semi relationship with a man. I also find it odd that she has no money though her family was doctors. And I assume she is an adult but had no job or money of her own. I also found the immediate and constant attacks unbelievable. I truly was confused most of the book. It really stems from a very poor beginning. You couldn’t relate to the main character because you knew almost nothing about her.

    I couldn’t give 4 stars due to no ending! I really dislike being tricked into buying the next book in a series. I normally will not read another story by authors who do this. I haven’t decided about this one yet. A series should be good enough that each book is a stand alone. Such a disappointment from an otherwise very good story.

    Like the first book it felt like I was jumping into it halfway through it and expected to make sense of it with no reference to it. Other than that it wasnt too bad but I really am learning to hate these books that leave it as a cliff hanger and force you to buy the next book to see what happens.

    I read the first one in the series, enjoyed the story. This one is a mess. Badly needs proof reading,and spell check. If you did not read the first book, you will not have a clue what is going on. I saw real promise in her first book. A book that cannot be read as a stand alone is not a good book. Just picking up and dropping off anywhere is a cheap ploy to force sales. A good book will sell on its own merit. Will not read another of her books unless she uses her real talent to write a complete book.

    Still a good read. Mostly action with no resolution. The ending is abrupt and leaves the reader wanting the next in series.. I will read the next book in this series. The storyline and character development are what I loved in the first book, this continues that development.

    A good start to a new series of books. Pretty scary and there’s a lot going on in this book. The one flaw for me was the characters didn’t grab me like most of the characters in the Ripley/Scare Street books do. It’s almost like I didn’t really care what was happening to Marigold. Not like what I would feel if the same were happening to Brian Roy or Shane Ryan of the Moving In and Berkeley Street series. I’m hoping that will change going forward.

    Book 2 of the Dark Legacy Series picks up three months after the events of Black Bayou.Marigold is surviving. Her only friend in the world is Louis who is struggling to keep her safe. Louis has hidden Marigold away leaving her isolated in an attempt to buy them some time and figure out their next move.As things around Marigold escalate she chooses not to confide in Louis; but withholding information could cost both of them their lives.This book is an excellent bridge between Black Bayou and the 3rd story in the trilogy. It is another fast-paced novel that leaves you wanting more.My only criticism is that I would have liked to see the events go over a longer period of time. This would have made the book longer and given the reader more time with the characters and the situation as quickly unfolds.I am absolutely looking forward to book 3.

    Honestly, this book captivated me from Chapter 1 when Marigold woke up in a bathtub being drowned by her parents. What?!? So many questions…Marigold La Roux may have survived her parent’s attempt on her life but when she moved to New Orleans she was unaware of the horrors that awaited her. Her only living relative may have accepted Marigold into her home but failed to let her in on the ghastly family secret.The story itself is hard to put into words, it was fast paced, engaging and I absolutely wanted more. Make sure when you finish Black Bayou you have Haunted Waterways ready to start.

    From the time her parents tried to kill her it seemed like she endured more and more pain and harshness from the world. I felt so sorry for the girl. I became afraid for her.

    I thought there was some not so wonderful reviews on this book to the point that I almost didn’t read it. Boy am I glad that I didn’t listen because it is so very very hard to spook me especially with a book and this book is the creepiest book I have ever read! I read it in one sitting and it was absolutely one of the best horror books I’ve read for a short read and one that really got the chills up and down my spine! I can’t wait to dig right into her next book! Awesome horror/supernatural writer. I certainly hope to see more books from this author with demons and hopefully they will be as good as this one. It is very hard to find a scary book about not just ghosts but a demon that gets me chilled and this one did for once!!! The demon in this book was absolutely relentless to the point where I kept asking myself “how much more can this girl take physically before this thing kills her? ” Thank you so much I had a great time reading your book. Never before was I spooked to go have a smoke outside in the dark from a book until I read this one 🙂 kudos to u on an awesome read. I highly recommend this book if demons are your thing and if u know of any other books besides the obvious ( hill house ect ) that are good books with relentless demons preying on a poor soul as this book does please let me know I am yet to find, except for this book one that gave me a good spook. Thanks so much

    I spotted this book while scrolling through an seemingly endless list of titles based on my interests. The cover caught my eye and I was intrigued by the title. I’m always looking for a good old fashioned ghost story and this seemed promising. I read about the book based on similar descriptions, opted to pass it over, having been let down by other books similar to this one.After nearly every book I’d finished or deleted before finishing, I would notice this book in another endless list. Finally, I gave in and downloaded it and the next one in the series and then the final book. I found myself drawn in and held captive by this paranormal thriller.I would compare it to the classic horror of a Lon Chaney or Bella Lagosi movie with modern horror aspect of the conjuring.

    A very good sequel to Black Bayou. I have to admit the story took a while for me to get into it but once I did I really enjoyed it. Very scary! There’s a lot going on in this book and unfortunately it leaves you hanging at the end. Not a fan of that and I do agree with a OP who would like to see this story end with some kind of resolution instead of resorting to a cliffhanger. I have KU but I guess I wouldn’t be too happy either if I had to pay for each book. Just a note if you just come into this second book without reading the first you will be totally lost. It’s been awhile since I read the first book and even I was a little confused at first. All in all, I enjoyed the book and I’m looking forward to the finale.

    Not quite as good as the first but still satisfying. My biggest complaint is I felt the 2nd book bordered on over the top, kind of like watching a horror movie where they think the crazier the action the better. The thing that sucked me in from the get go is these books are damn scary and trust me when I say I’m no slouch. I’m a fan of extreme horror and though I absolutely love the genre I can’t say much truly scars me and there are parts in these books, especially the first that chilled me to the bone, truly horrifying. Unlike other reviewer’s I liked the ending . I did feel like it was a little, well maybe a lot unrealistic but really…do you read fiction especially horror for the realism? I look forward to seeing what more this author has to offer. Now on to number three!

    I’m a horror buff, I absolutely love the genre though my taste can run a tad to the extreme “the type you wouldn’t tell your momma about”. This book isn’t quite like that but one thing it is is absolutely terrifying. I can’t recall many books that are this freaking scary and I’m no slouch. Clancy has got a gift I can’t wait to see what she can do after she really cuts her teeth. I think she could push it further, maybe knock a couple back with Edward Lee and Matt Shaw and really get down.

    Have read all three books now and though Book 2 may have been my favorite, this book tied up all the questions in a neat bow. If you like to read about ghosts, demons, voodoo, New Orleans….then this trilogy is for you but read the books in order if you want to get the full effect!

    Inherit a title but you also inherit a demon who requires bloody murder sacrifices. This is one severely twisted family that Marigold finds she is part of. Add in ghosts, voodoo, New Orleans and this ride is fleshing out to be quite a story. Must read book 1 first, but 2 was as good if not better than the first book. I’m ready to see if its all tied up in Book 3.

    I normally do not bother reading stories under 200 pages because of the lack of time an author has to start telling it before it’s over. But, I gave this one a try because I’m running out of things to read…and was pleasantly surprised!Although this book took only a couple of hours to read, I found that in such a short time, the author does do a good job of character building, and especially of making you care about Marigold (Maggie), the main character. She even manages to hint at what I felt was going to be a little romance going on between her and another main character – even though she cannot pronounce his name to his or his mothers liking.The story itself was unique, which was a plus, as it wasn’t based on any concept I’ve ever seen done in horror before.The setting is New Orleans, and although I’ve never been there, I felt as if I were there when the author described the tastes, smells, sites, people and atmosphere…especially that of Bourbon street.I did get a little lost in the end, for some reason. I don’t think it kept my attention as much as the rest of the book did. The style is so different it almost seems to have been written by someone else. I liked the ens … I just didn’t care for the style in which it was wtitten.However – this book was not all perfection as my biggest complaint is the editing. If it’s one pet peeve I have it’s when someone does not know how to spell “wander.” This author did it not once, not twice, but 3 times using the word “wonder” or “wondering” when the word should be “wander” or “wandering.” When in doubt, look it up. Those are COMPLETELY different words. That’s what dictionaries are for. Author, please look these words up as you read this, or correct the sentences so you see the word does not fit the sentence in the book.There are also other “wrong word errors” in the book such as:1 sentence with silence that should be silent.And…the biggest faux pas due to the (some would say blasphemous) difference in the definitions:1 sentence with the word “domination” that should be “denomination.” Proof that using the correct word is extremely important.A good editor would have caught these things. Only running the document through spell check does not negate the need for an editor, as spell check does not catch these glaring errors.I had to give three stars because I start all off with 5 and knock off stars as I go. I knocked off one for the wrong word errors, and one for the ending. If those were fixed, and the book were longer, it may be worth all 5.

    I hate to say it, but I consider these “young adult” books and there’s NO WAY I would let ANY young adult I know read anything by this author until she gets an editor. Reason being, IMO, young adults are those who are between the ages of 13-18 and they are still learning English and grammar. With as many errors as I’ve found in this authors work, I do not find her to be a good example for any person in that age group who is still learning the rules of English and grammar. If they turn in a paper to their teacher with these errors, their grade won’t be very good.First, there are the SMALLER errors of missing connecting words such as “a” “an” “and” “or” etc, throughout the book which shows a TERRIBLE lack of detail.Second, there are punctuation errors, mostly in missing closing quotation marks – especially with long dialog that is split amongst more than one paragraph.And finally…if there are two words that sound alike but are spelled differently, this author is surely going to choose the WRONG word.In this book alone (not counting the other two in the series) these are the most glaring errors in this area:* Used Insured when she has ASSURED someone things will be okay, rather than provided them coverage in case of an accident.* Used roof when talking of where glow-in-the-dark stickers were placed (I believe she meant they were placed on the CEILING, unless they were weatherproof and the family was summoning a UFO)* Author has, thru the series, used wonder instead of WANDER but in this book has shown she knows the difference as it’s used properly here and there.* Uses heal as in how a wound heals when speaking of the HEEL of a foot.* Used bared, as in bared her soul when talking about someone who BARRED the door so nobody could get in*Used personal as in private, rather than PERSONNEL as in the department you visit when you want a jobThen we have words that were spelled incorrectly and should have been caught by spell check:* Spelled t-shirts incorrectly as tee-shirts* Spelled incrusted s/b ENCRUSTED (in fact, there’s no such word as INcrusted)Given all of these errors, I cannot recommend this book to anyone for their young adult. I’m sorry…

    There are plenty of terrifying scenes that fans of paranormal horror will definitely enjoy. Add a dash of Voodoo, and Black Bayou is a perfect quick read on a stormy night. However, I couldn’t give this book more than three stars as the lack of exposition and character development really cut into my enjoyment of the story. Although I really liked the writer’s style & use of language, this little novel could have used a good editor.

The second had more, enough to be off-putting and actually pull me out of the story. Admittedly, not everyone is bothered by punctuation errors and small grammar snafus. This, the third book, I really think was written on a device with autocorrect. Sometimes every page for a chapter or more would have at least one error. I marked them in a sort of morbid fascination to see just how bad it could get. And it’s not just small things, was entire words being replaced with something else. It took me a third of the book to recognize the pattern. Going back to look, my SD card was corrupted (I should have recognized the warning signs, that’s on me) and I had to send the book back to my Kindle. Almost all of my highlights were gone. I assume the author recognized the problems and fixed them. Some errors still remained.There are still repetitious sentences like “tiny limbs flailing as much as his slight limbs…;” incorrect words that a cursory look through MS Word wouldn’t catch, such as “bare the doors” instead of “bar;” things glancing at MS Word probably would catch like “broachers” instead of brochures and the missing space in “Marigoldwas;” form of verb issues like “renewed forced” instead of “renewed force.” Thankfully the worst of the offenses are gone, or at least I can’t find them without rereading the book.I think the author was in more of a hurry with each book and rushed the process. It’s really too bad because the underlying story is good.

    First, it’s a good followup to the first book in the series. Second, I almost didn’t finish the first chapter because of the punctuation and grammar errors. I understand tossing some rules aside because of a style choice or to match the voice of the character, this isn’t that. Seriously, get a copy of “Chicago Manual of Style” and reference it. OMG. That being said, if you aren’t bothered by such things as commas and apostrophes (also, learn how to use a semicolon – don’t fear the winky ;), then this is a quick, good, and fairly creepy read.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a fast read. I don’t usually care for short stories. To me less than 200 pages is considered a short story. I will be reading the other two sequels. Sometimes the writing gets a little confused and you can lose your way, but it corrects itself very quickly.

    I enjoyed the series although I thought the author talked and explained in detail everything about the ghosts and the evils that followed this family. I didn’t care as much about that.

    Brilliant! I am amazed that the author is so young… to be this age and have such talent, I expect a long and exciting career ahead for her.Other reviews have highlighted a large number of errors, but to be honest I would not have noticed as the book was so exciting that I could not wait to turn the page, let alone stop to correct grammar/spelling. Consider me a fan for life after this series!

    Pretty easy read and decently suspenseful. I like it being set in New Orleans, that makes for lots of haunted fun.

    Was she get loved? Probably not! Her family is cursed and they MUST HAVE AN HEIR TO PASS ON THIS HIDEOUS CURSE or they will be haunted EVEN AFTER DEATH. Will she be able to defeat this curse or is there even a possibility. A SUPERNATURAL THRILLER I RECOMMEND.

    I found this book to be intriguing, spell binding, suspenseful with lots of action. I read til late night and first thing in the morning, til the very last page. Plus it was in New Orleans where it was more believable. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who finds this stuff fun and interesting to read.

    This is not my typical style of book. It looked interesting so I decided to give it a chance. I was totally engrossed. Not only did it grab my attention, but I couldn’t stop reading. Characters are very well developed. Parts of it I almost wanted to read like I watched horror movies as a child. With my eyes peaking out from around my hands. I look forward to reading more from this author.

    From beginning to the end ….suspense! This was my type of book. I love books that I hate to put down. A lot of books that are part of a series will not peak my interest enough for me to be interested enough to want to read the next book in the series but this book my change that. This could be the beginning of a beautiful reading relationship.

    This is a wonderful book to read if you are from the south and grew up with beliefs such as these. Brings back memories from my grandmother. Can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

    Now this is more like it. The story starts out with an explosive scene and really doesn’t slow down much from there.Events move swiftly after Marigold’s parents tried to drown her in the bath tub. Turns out they had a huge secret. Once it’s exposed, Marigold has to leave town to avoid those who blame her for what her parents did. Her aunt offers to let her come live with her in New Orleans, so off she goes.This is where you’d expect things to slow down a bit while the author gives you some filler. But, it doesn’t. Weird and scary things happen as Marigold travels to New Orleans and keep happening once she gets there.It takes a lot to make my creep-o-meter spike to the red zone. This story had all the bells and whistles I look for in a solid horror story. And I couldn’t have asked for a more genuine main character. Not to mention the setting. New Orleans is popular for vampire and voodoo stories. And it sure worked good for what lurked in the pages here.Kudos to the author for choosing the perfect title and great cover art for her story. It’s what first drew me to this book and the story lives up to its name.Not too long or too short, this story was just right for a late night read. The only hitch, it didn’t really have an ending. A lot of questions were left unanswered. I enjoyed this so much I’ll continue with the series, but leaving me hanging with so much still left open was the one thing that kept if from being a 5 star read.

    I didn’t realize this was not a “stand alone” novel when I began it. Very disappointed that the ending left me “hanging.” I hate it when authors do this. There should be a disclaimer stating that the book has a sequel. Will not read more of this author.
