Description


Jacqueline is a young Creole slave in antebellum New Orleans. An unusual stranger who has haunted her dreams since childhood comes to stay as a guest in her master's house. Soon after his arrival, members of the household die mysteriously and Jacqueline is suspected of murder. Despite her fear of the stranger, Jacqueline befriends him and he helps her escape. While running from the slave catchers, they meet conjurers, a loup-garou, and a traveling circus of supernatural freaks. She relies on ancestral magic to guide her and finds the strength to conquer her fears on her journey."Vampires are terrifying creatures, driven by insatiable, cannibalistic hunger and murderous urges. I was glad to have one at my side..." So writes Michelle Renee Lane in her chilling and charming adventure INVISIBLE CHAINS. The unbridled horrors of Delta slave masters are met by the mysterious powers of supernatural creatures but human brutality can only be held at bay by the pure heart and pure magic of Lane's superb narrator.--Jewelle Gomez, author of THE GILDA"Lane's absorbing tale of a woman born into slavery, who learns to use magic passed down to her from ancestors to survive held my attention from page one to the end. The question of how to maintain a sense of sanity when living with brutality is handled with expert storytelling. The human need for freedom mingled with vampires, werewolves, and witches makes this a book you need to read."-Linda D. Addison, award-winning author of "How to Recognize a Demon Has Become Your Friend" and HWA Lifetime Achievement Award winner."A wonderfully written novel of dark magic and the strength and dignity of the human spirit." -- Tim Waggoner, author of THEY KILL "A thrilling, emotional tale set during one of the darkest periods in American history. Harrowing and human, Lane has teased black-girl magic entirely to life with her protagonist, Jacqueline, and created one of the best, 'classic' vampires I've yet seen " -- Errick Nunnally - Author of LIGHTNING WEARS A RED CAPE and BLOOD FOR THE SUN"This book is like blood magic: dark yet beautiful and filled with pain."-Stephanie M. Wytovich, Bram Stoker award-winning author of BROTHEL "Lane's absorbing tale of a woman born into slavery, who learns to use magic passed down to her from ancestors to survive held my attention from page one to the end.
