Review of Shaman Circus from Jen Knox, author of Musical Chairs

Jen Knox, author of Musical Chairs,  recently reviewed Shaman Circus on Goodreads and Amazon
rated it:  5 stars
Read in March, 2010

Plot-wise, Gray's book is unique and believably unbelievable (am I making sense here?). The setting is New Orleans, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The characters are desperate and emotionally fragile, and yet their culture is so incredibly strong that they are never hopeless or weak. What I'm trying to say here is that the book's plot is out there, filled with magic and voodoo, otherworldly things, and yet it's centered on spiritual questions, questions that seem a commonality in the characters' minds. Perhaps in the readers'?


  1. Cool review! Thanks for posting this. You're getting some really great press on your book. Kudos!

  2. Sounds like an interesting story concept and I really like using the Post-Katrina setting-- kind of apocalyptic.

  3. Good review. It sounds honest and real, not a cut and paste review from someone who does reviews professionally. To me, that makes it more believable. Congrats!
