Marie Laveau was known as the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. In the mid-1800s, many people in New Orleans believed that voodoo practitioners could contact the spirits of the dead to ask for their help. Marie Laveau was said to use magical charms and potions to place or remove curses on those she wished to help--or harm! Did this voodoo priestess really have the power to contact the spirit world and cast spells? An exciting narrative format brings a fascinating period of American history to life, with plenty of creepy details to satisfy young horror fans. Chilling photos and illustrations and clear, age-appropriate text will keep readers turning the pages to discover the secrets of the voodoo queen.
