Karma’s Grip : Unravelling Spiritual Retribution in Alligator Queen

Prepare to be captivated by the dark and mystical tale of Alligator Queen, a gripping webnovel set against the backdrop of post-Katrina New Orleans. As young Isabella ‘Bella’ Bardeaux returns to the city she once called home, she finds herself thrust into a whirlwind of spirituality, crime, violence, and the ever-present spectre of racism.

Haunted by the memories of her past and the city’s turbulent history, Bella embarks on a journey of rediscovery, reconnecting with a family she barely knows and immersing herself in the enigmatic allure of New Orleans’ music, mysteries, and darkness.

But Bella’s homecoming takes a sinister turn when she is found dead in a graveyard on the bayou’s edge, the victim of a brutal altercation with a group of white racists. As her aunt pleads with the spirits of their ancestors for help, the powerful Baron Samedi refuses to bury her, leaving Bella’s fate hanging in the balance.

With the police dismissing the case as unsolvable and refusing to investigate further, Bella’s people are left to navigate the treacherous waters of justice and retribution on her own. And as the protective spirits of the graveyard demand vengeance for the injustice done to her, Bella finds herself drawn into a world of ancient powers and cosmic justice, where karma reigns supreme and the sins of the past cannot be ignored.

Join us on a journey into the heart of darkness, where the lines between the physical and spiritual worlds blur, and where the struggle for justice takes on a supernatural dimension.
