Corrine La Mer returns in this third installment of Tracey Baptiste's Jumbies series, this time confronting the consequences of her actions in the previous two books. The balance between the water and land jumbies had been thrown off by Corrine's assistance to Mama D’Leau, and by her exile of her Aunt Severine to Arctic waters, and the god Huracan had been awakened and angered as a result. Now Corinne must help her friends and family flee to the mountains, when hurricane after hurricane batters her Caribbean island home, uniting everyone - human and jumbie - in the fight for their very survival...

I enjoyed The Jumbie God's Revenge, finding it an engaging middle-grade fantasy, much like its predecessors. I did sometimes feel that events were a little rushed, and I wasn't entirely clear about the extent of Corinne's powers, and how she came by them. The narrative seems to imply, in the scenes in which she confronts Huracan, that she has abilities that even full jumbies like Papa Boi and Mama D’Leau do not. Perhaps we are meant to understand that because she is half jumbie and half human, she can unite the two? I wasn't entirely clear on that, or on how she developed her various abilities. I did like the incorporation of Huracan into the story, given that he is a Mayan deity, and that this reflects the mixed cultural influences in the Caribbean. Recommended to anyone who has read and enjoyed the first two books in the series. ( )

Book description
When an out-of-season hurricane sweeps through Corinne’s seaside village, Corinne knows it’s not a typical storm. At first Corinne believes Mama D’Leau—the powerful and cruel jumbie who rules the ocean—has caused the hurricane. Then a second, even more ferocious storm wrecks the island, sending villagers fleeing their houses for shelter in the mountains, and Corinne discovers the storms weren’t caused by a jumbie, but by the angry god Huracan.

Now Corinne, with the help of her friends and even some of her enemies, must race against time to find out what has angered Huracan and try to fix it before her island home is destroyed forever.
